Transfer rumours, targets & new signings


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Pool fans gutted, key in their promotion.

A young, versatile defender with good experience + a promotion on his CV from a Category 1 academy to compete with Gibbons?

A C(l)ass signing.

Why would we be giving a loan signing a medical?

Thinks shows we are more professional, covers all bases 

Perhaps if we'd done that with the likes of Lainton and Forrester !

We must be paying a hefty loan fee in that case. 

Or not maybe, hopefully Newcastle want him to get experience at a professionally run club, they may be paying most of his wages.

Perfect fit - young, can develop, won't necessarily expect to play every game, covers smith at RCB, competes with Gibbo at RB, Gibbo still first-choice RWB (with Woz as back-up). 

Also think Solanke fits the bill as a young back-up DM - don't need a ready-made player there yet as Walker first choice and Pett or Garrity can cover, so could sign him up and send him out on loan to NL for the first half of the season, get him some experience.

Just a young winger and striker to sign I reckon, plus a more experienced forward if/when Theo does get a deal elsewhere (could even leave that until January rather than a last-minute panic replacement if Theo doesn't get fixed up in the next couple of weeks).

Didn't DC say that any loan signings would be with a view to a permanent deal? Given his contract expires at the end of the season, he seems to fit that criteria

He signed a new contract in January.  Is quite highly rated at Newcastle and has done well in their U23 side before he went to the monkey hangers on loan.  Was highly rated at Hartlepool and played almost all their games up to the play offs after he joined them in October.  A very promising signing.  Last player we had on loan from the Toon was Remi Streete and he did OK!

As long as he's more Remi than Mark Boyd !
