    Ryan Manning just makes so much sense.

    Hes a good player, fairly young, knows the league, in a position we desperately need reinforcements and his contract expires soon and QPR look to have accepted he will leave.

    With his contractual situation I can't imagine he would cost too much either, although suppose we may have to fight off one or two PL clubs.

    Agreed. Think he'd be 3-5m. Excluded from the squad as they brace for interest. Think West Ham and West Brom are the bottom half teams still looking for a left back, although I think that Manning is probably too forward-thinking for the latter, given how they'll be scrapping at the bottom of the table. West Ham likely to look at more 'exotic' targets too.

    Another player that potentially can fill in at lwb going then. Great.

    Vydra heavily rumoured to be re-joining Derby on a season long loan with view to permanent...

    Thought we could have done a deal with Burnley on this. We swap Gray for Vydra. They clearly like Gray, and we all know how good Vydra is at Championship level.

    I don’t think Dyche does like Gray, didn’t they fall out? He’s known to like Deeney mind you...

    I also suspect Gray is happy down south with his pop star fiancé.

    Doubt he’d drop down to the Championship but with Reguilon joining Spurs looks like Ryan Sessegnon will be loaned out. Would be perfect at LWB. I reckon Giannoulis is probably beyond us now as he’s being linked with Atalanta which is a shame as he looked great. Another suggestion would be Laxalt at Milan. Ryan Manning - given his price and his proven value at this level - would probably be the way to go.

    Another interesting one (and the subject of same vague links to us) is Fluminese’s Marcos Paolo. A flexible forward a la Richarlison (or JP). He has a Portuguese passport so wouldn’t need a work permit and 1 year left on his contract. Fluminese need to sell to balance their books and we have a good relationship with them from previous deals. Probably available for £8-10m. Has a lot of pedigree and has linked up well with JP before. Would be an interesting way to go if we sell Suarez for big money.

    What's Sessengnon on? £50/60k? No chance he comes to us.

    He'll go to someone like Sheffield United or Leeds on loan.

    Sheffield Utd just signed Max Lowe on a permanent from Derby as a back-up LWB.

    Leeds don't use wing-backs and Dallas is nailed as their starting left-back.

    The only PL team I reckon that might have a starting spot for him are Brighton. It was rumoured that they were also in for Estupinan.

    I doubt he is on that much. Daniel Levy runs a tight ship. But certainly much, much likelier to head out to a fellow prem side or a top club abroad. Brighton as @lowerrous points out would be a good fit.

    Or back to Fulham...

    They gave Bryan a new contract and signed Robinson, can't imagine they want him unless it is to play further forward.
     
  13. LeedsOrn

    LeedsOrn Academy Graduate

    Yup. Think they would have been all over this if it had been an option earlier in the window.
     
  14. Burnsy

    He played further forward during his best spell there. Was moving up the field from LB to LW and even more attacking much like Bale - and then that was stifled by the awful PL season Fulham had and going a bit stale at Spurs.
     
  15. nornironhorn

    nornironhorn Administrator Staff Member

    Yea but I imagine Spurs will want to loan him out for experience as a LB.

    All irrelevant anyway, he won't be coming here surely.

    You have to wonder whether there are actually any irons in fires for new blood at this point in time. Just all seems so quiet.

    I miss the days when there were some ITK rumours knocking about.

    Then again, for those to be doing the rounds, the club usually has to be active.

    It’s like the only actually confirmed Stevenson because Vlad wanted to use him!

    Harry Wilson, anyone?

    I’d definitely take him. I think he got 18 goals when on loan at Derby 2 seasons ago. Great set piece taker and scores from outside the box - we haven’t been able to do either in recent years. But I think the implicit question is: would you be happy replacing Sarr with Wilson. Not sure. Obviously would rather keep Sarr, but if he leaves, who would we be able to bring in that would do better than Wilson. If Sarr does want to go to Liverpool I’d be reasonably happy with £30-35m + Wilson.

    Impressive for Derby in the Championship, 7 goals I believe for Muff. Good at set pieces.
    But I thought Premier league clubs has shown interest in him.

    Seems to only deal with the spectacular, with his free kicks and long shots, but other than that, I can't remember him doing much, even in the Championship. Still, that's something we've been missing over the past few years, and, well, it's pointless trying to compare him to Sarr, for whom there is no like for like replacement in terms of ability

    Sounds like a RW Lewis McGugan.

    Furiously resisting the urge to like this in the hope Quina comes good with a good midfield behind/beside him!

    He will come good. He's going to be inconsistent due to his age and position he plays in.

    We could do worse in midfield then bringing back Ben Watson, currently a free and played quite well for Forrest last year. I guess it would depend if Capoue was sold. Not a player for the PL if we get promoted but would do a job in the Championship.

    The exact sort of player we need.

    He'd be a better nostalgia option than Forestieri, and I know we've got Glenn Murray, but...he's 35, surely there are better options available?

    (Would probably be the first one to buy his shirt if he came though lol)

    Who I’d want to offload:
    Deeney, Sinclair, Welbeck, Janmaat, Navarro, Penaranda, Pereyra, Success

    Players I think we will actually lose:
    Hughes, Capoue, Deulofeu, Femenia, Pereyra, Pussetto, Sarr, Suarez

    I can’t help but really worry we’re going to be seriously lacking quality by the time the window closes. But we won’t be lacking a huge wage bill.

    Prediction:
    So many of the players who have been left out of the squad will be warming to the idea of leaving. Say we need to make another 40 million. It'll come to near deadline day and teams will panic buy. Deeney will go to WBA, Pererya back to Italy, Deulofeu to Napoli etc. That's job done- 40+ million in the bank and huge savings on wages.

    The problem we now have is all of the other players that were left out and given the impression they would leave. This results in the likes of Suarez, Hughes, Capoue, Sarr, maybe even Dawson, Femenia and Masina being annoyed and wanting out. Pozzo then caves to player power and we're left with exactly the same squad we've seen so far. Mid-table beckons.

    It's all good though, as Gino nets over £100 million in transfer fees. Clappers rejoice.

    Left-footed CB Scott McKenna of Aberdeen, who’s also got leadership capabilities, is understood to be the subject of a ‘significant’ bid by an English club as confirmed by their manager. Club is rumoured to be Notts Forest...

    We could be guilty of daydreaming whilst another goes here.

    Can't find a fee for this deal, but supposedly he's been subject to £7m and £10m bids in the past, I wonder if the Forest bid is in excess of those, or whether he had gone 'stale' in the ensuing couple of years like Doucoure for us. As nice as he would be, I don't see us spending £10m+ on prime Maldini in this state! I also wonder how good he'd be at Championship level, there's a step up from Scotland, and even if he's a good defender, he could be a donkey with the ball at his feet, which isn't really what we want now

    Interesting to see the Aberdeen board, staff and social media team be a lot more up front in communicating to their fans, never get that with us!
