NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2019)

Post by Bodacious Benny » Thu Oct 18, 2018 12:22 pm

And so it's getting to that time of year where transfer rumours and supposed targets for January start to circulate. Lets all get our hopes up only to find that we couldn't get anyone over the line, wouldn't pay the transfer fee, wouldn't pay the signing on fee, wouldn't pay the agent fees or wouldn't pay upfront <urgh>

Links to Solanke and Origi from Liverpool. We're already at our maximum quota for loan players, so any transfer has to be permanent (another reason why nothing will happen). I'd prefer Solanke as I think he's got real potential, however he'd probably cost a fair bit and be on decent wages. Can't see either happening. Although Ashley may offer Rafa the option to sell Lascelles for £35m and he'll generously give him £15m or so to spend out of that.

Thorgan Hazard will probably remain our preferred transfer target <roll>

An early starting of bullshiting ourselves I see.

I'm fairly confident that once Llambias buys Greenock Morton; the transfer floodgates will open and Mike will happily splash the cash to purchase their top players.

So confidence in our recruitment team sounds high <laugh>

Reality sucks <urgh>

But we can all watch on as Bournemouth, Watford etc. shell out £15m/£20m/£25m on players.

The club is reported in the media as saying Rafa has to sign a new deal to release funds.

Rafa is reported as saying he needs assurances about available funds before he signs a new contract.

Potential buyers are reported as hoping the situation to avoid relegation improves before they'll make a bid for the club and release funds.

Mexican standoff.

This.
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Thought you could only have 2 loanees, so anyone comes in needs to be a permanent transfer (i.e. it's not happening).

Isn't that just from the English leagues? Not sure though.

Seems like this will be another winter in which they actually make a few desperate signings to try and fend off relegation, only to still have key gaps and no chemistry. With a prompt sell-off of them come summer when they have better offers at other clubs.

Yeah it's two domestic, and I think four overall. So could potentially sign someone from overseas on a loan (to buy <awe> ).

I worry we might be doomed allready by january... Worry is such a strong word these days though, since my care for the club has fallen drastically the last year and a half. Maybe the word think has better purpose. Sad isn't it...

To solve the loan problems what about sending Kenedy and Rondon back to where thay came from, utter garbage so far this season.
