Not sure why we would loan a 17 year old who looks a ways from first team action as he's very raw.

As short term options go i think we could do a lot worse.

Prefer someone proven but scored a few in Serie A this season, big lad for his age, confident, mobile, sort of like Ekuban actually.

Ones a 17 year old playing fairly regularly in Serie A . . . The others a bloke in his mid 20s whose never played in the top flight of any country (France doesnt count)

Let hope its not true, especially for "multi Millions" . .a 1 in 3 in League 1 is not the answer.

If we go for a centre-forward to go straight into the first team, we'd be better off with Quagliarella from Sampdoria. A selling club. He's scored twelve goals, and should be reasonably cheap.

That has GOT to be a joke . . . . wouldnt give them £1mil

Hope Barry Fry doesnt find out, he will be asking for 12 for Marriott if we think this kids worth 4.

Leeds now 3rd favourites to sign Nelson Oliviera.

And rumoured to be in for 11 goal Blackburn midfielder Bradley Dack.

Both excellent players but probably looking at £13m for the pair, can't see it.

Sky now linking us with Tyler Roberts.

Prefer Marriott, Oliviera etc.

Rather Kean on loan.

Don't worry guys, I've tweeted Andrea, and told him if we can't have a reasonably expensive, centre-forward, experienced in our league, buy Quagliarella from Sampdoria. They're a selling club, and he would probably be reasonably priced.
Of course, he might not listen. After all, he doesn't know I'm a genius.

Speculation in the tabloids today that Leeds are putting together a combined £7m bid to Aston Villa for Ross McCormack, who has been scoring goals for fun in the A league in Aus and Tommy Elphick, the central defender.

Any of our Aussie based members provide any confirmation of how well Ross is playing and importantly, he's physical condition as he was well over weight when last playing here for Villa.

McCormack can't play for another club other than Villa or Melbourne this season, unless it is in a country whose league haven't started yet, like Scandinavia.

Cant think of any striker I'd rather we signed less.

Apparently considering an increased offer for Tyler Roberts.

1 in 3 in league 1 and out of contract in the summer.

If the £4m offer was genuine and we go back offering more then someone needs to lock Orta and Radz up for there own safety.
