Well, as I was promised it’s already been a fantastically exciting on Transfer Deadline Day!
According to The Telegraph this morning Liverpool are, not content with taking Konch off our hands, putting in a cheeky bid for our Bobby. And many of the other papers saying Sparkys doing similar to his old club and wants to bring Given and Santa Cruz to SW6. Though The Guardian reports Givens decided he’d prefer to warm the bench and collect his hefty pay packet up at The City of Manchester Stadium instead.
Though according to The Times, Sparky is popping off to Villa some five weeks after becoming Roys replacement at the cottage. Which, if true, would seem quite strange considerin g Hughes stance on Schwarzer not being allowed to move on this summer. Speaking of which, Arsenal have slapped a final bid of £4m down on the table for our ‘keeper, but surely that wouldn’t go through until we get a stopper in due to Stockdales injury last weekend.
A more odd link, considering our signing of Salcido last week, Sky Sports News HD are reporting we’re in the market for Tiene Siaka. A left back currently playing Valenciennes in Spain, he appears well up for a move to England and said “I am a bit nervous but if everything can be put in place, I could fulfil my dream of joining my Ivorian colleagues in England.” Though him coming in would give the left back position far more cover than we’ve had in a long while.
It’s all shaping up to be a VERY exciting nine hours!
