January transfer rumours and squad discussion

Bit early maybe.

But the rumours keep coming thick and fast so thought they should have somewhere to go :shirt: :shirt:

Aapo Halme-young Finnish Cb we were linked with before, reported to be again. May be something in this as apparently the Saiz and Alioski rumours were reported in Finland very early on.

Danny Ings rumours creeping up but recently played down, surprised if this has any legs.

Yosuke Ideguchi, young Japan starlet rumours been around for a while.

Ings is too good to be sitting around doing nothing would be a tremendous signing if he came back the same player as before but there must be doubts about his firness. Worth a loan deal imo

Cod and Barricuda I’d prefer we went for a Great White and a Sailfish :lol:

New goalkeeper imminent . Probably for the u23s . .bit of a strange one.

Mimoun Mahi linked
Dutch born Moroccan winger. Great form in Holland for Fc Groningen.
27 goals in 76 games.
Typically operates from the left, right footed but as the clip shows has a decent left foot as well.
One of those rumours you hope pays off, Pablos successor perhaps?

Not a word, but rank outsider for me too.

Scott Malone to Leeds United: Huddersfield left-back wanted at Elland Road in January

At last we have seen the light as we look to sign a proper left-back

A top CB & LB should have been priorities in the summer

An admission by TC, Orta et al that they missed a trick in not replacing Taylor? Also suggests, if true, that CBJ's loan will be cut short. As for a CB in the summer; perhaps if Pennington cuts it this season, we'll look to buy him? Though that would be up to Everton, of course.

Haven't been that impressed with Pennington so far although he has had a difficult start with injuries.
Thought he was shaky at Bolton & woeful at Hillsborough, he hardly won a header v the Owls

To his credit he did quite well when he was thrown in the lions den at Cardiff

We needed more than a young lad to fill Bartley's boots imo !

:shirt: Read yesterday Radz is planning to spend big in January . Great news :shirt:

But in the same article it said "feel they need more attacking talent" :(

While that Dutch guy would be a great signing (apparently).

If we dont sign a cb and a lb then questions should be asked of Victor Orta and TC

Tend to agree - I like much of what they have done so far but they do seem to have blind spots in their thinking on our defence.
