The news about Tom Ince continues to rumble on however there’s been no bid accepted. So far all the speculation is paper talk.
Couple of Pool players have moved on. Ludovic Sylvestre after rejected a new contract at Blackpool has signed for Çaykur Rizespor. For those not familiar with Çaykur Rizespor (me being one 5 minutes ago) they are a Turkish team who recently won promotion to the top flight in Turkey. Ludo’s gone and bagged himself a three-year deal – looks pretty happy about it. Not sure about the kit!
Another midfield that left us las year was Tiago Gomes, he’s set to join Cypriot club Apoel FC, those of Champions league giant killing fame.
There’s also been loads of activity in the transfer market today / yesterday with Championship clubs. Birmingham have lost Curtis Davis to Hull. Birmingham had brought in Om Adeyemi from Norwich yesturday. Down the road Blackburn Rovers brought in defender Todd Kane on loan for a year from Chelsea, he had spent time on loan at Ewood Park last season.
A trio of international signings, Donny brought in Marc De Val Fernandez from ….. Real Madrid. Josef Varga signed for Boro from Debrecen (no idea) and Reading brought in USA international Danny Williams from Hoffenheim.
Huddersfield have been the busiest, with a triple signing including a couple of familier names. Former Pool loanee Adam Hammill, former target John Stead (former Huddersfield player) and what could be a great signing Martin Paterson from Burnley. Paterson had a great start to his career with Burnley but was then dogged by injuries. The three of them could be great signing for Town who are starting to look a very attacking side.
And for us……… don’t even ask. At least we can look forward to Ángel Martínez next blog post from Portugal LOL!
