Can’t help thinking this would be great business. Interesting that the club have confirmed it in advance of the transfer being completed. That’s a departure from the normal routine, I think.

It’s around what we paid for him a year ago and he hasn’t exactly set the world on the fire since. He’s an honest, hard-working player, but he hasn’t been able to find the back of the net with any regularity. We need an upgrade to compete in Europe and hopefully these funds will allow us to make a move.

On that note, didn’t we say we’d only allow Bobby to move once we’ve lined up a replacement? Who could that be?
