    Another guy I know birger all about.
    Usual heath warning given he plays in the Belgian league.
    Presumably via the wonder-agent who bought us Oulare and Kums ?

    Watford to buy Birger. Deeney must be licking his lips and hanging around the door at London Colney

    I wonder if Birger orders a bigger burger when he is in McDonald's.

    He does, but then they sometimes accidentally give him a smaller one which makes him very verstraeted.

    Sounds like a character from The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy so 'yes' from me!

    We're leading the chase for someone in the Gent's? Let him get on with it for goodness sake.

    He probably relishes a piece of cheese!

    Initial thoughts are that he's difficult to fit into a song, essential for a striker, so probably a no from me. However I reserve the right to change my mind if I can recall a suitable 80's classic before the window eases open.

    He was at Kortrijk for a couple of years and a Kortrijk fan I know says "good midfielder but probably not good enough for the Premier League".

    That's the Belgian view.

    Has made the Belgium national squad. That has to be something in this day and age.

    Rennes fans were allegedly in stitches at how much we paid for Doucoure. He seems to have moved on since Kortrijk.

    This deserved more recognition.

    This place is going right down the pan. I blame the operating cistern.

    Imagine being linked to someone who's actually played at a decent level and is at least vaguely recognisable?

    It just means we won't sign him.

    The only time he did was when he was playing well and injuries to their main CB's.

    #WatfordFC transfer update

    Two sources have told me club are not currently in discussions with Gent over transfer of Birger Verstraete. One report in Belgium said he was ‘on the way’ to Watford. At this stage in the window that seems premature & any deal doesn’t appear imminent
