we are being linked to 22 year old attacking mid Hakim Ziyech of FC Twente. I can see this deal going through as FC Twente currently are second last in the Eredevisie and he may want to leave.

and why would we want a player from the 2nd last team in that crappy league?

Totally agree
We're starting to show the lack of quality we have in our squad
And just adding another player of this caliber would only
Add to the lack of quality we have
We've stopped looking at players over 12 mill
I'd like it if we made a marquee signing to lift he club and the existing players and show our intent
For the second half of the season.

"We've stopped looking at players over 12mil" - got a source for those facts?

There are players with potential in every team, just 'cause they're in a different league or a team who aren't right at the top of their league doesn't make them bad and it doesn't mean they wouldn't be good in a better team.

Agree with SaintySaintSaint. Letissier in the 90s team for example, are we forgetting? Vaney from no-league?

Hakim Ziyech has been incredible this season, he has 10 goals and 5 assists from midfield in 18 matches. That's more than 80% of Twente's goals this season (18). Whatsmore he is the captain of the club and only 22 years old. Do some research before blindly criticsing.

Having originally planned to let Wanyama leave in the Summer only, Ronald Koeman is putting pressure on the board to let him leave in January as themanager believes that Vic has been poor both in performances and attitude since being denied a move to Tottenham back in August.

Caulker is going to be sent back to QPR in January to free up a space for another Loan as he isn't impressing anyone, is on big money and QPR want to flog him permanently to another PL side. Ramirez is another who may leave, may be tricky though due to his pay.

As for ins, don't expect anything exciting. Likely 1 loan attacker and one loan for defensive cover unless Koeman gets his way and Wanyama is sold earlier than planned with Imbula being the main target though the price may be too high.

koeman said he isn't going to rush and panicbuy in the window. He is waiting on J-rods return which I think is a good idea as he could be the player we have been missing all this time.

J Rod is out 'till at least Feb.

Didnt we pin all our hopes on jrod last jan, board need to face he may never be same player again.

Koeman wouldn't play him if he really thought that.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jan 2016 14:24:58
Well he hasn't really played him just dribs and drabs so even roko won't know if he's still got 'it'

koeman didn't want to overuse j rod, he has been out for soo long. rushing him back could have led to future injuries (which happened)

I'm not sure about this one but I saw it on another transfer site. Seems we are going to sign sullley March from brighton for a fee of about 7:5 mil is he worth it.

Wont happen in jan as he is out for a couple of months I believe.

Solly march is out for the rest of the season, I would rather see us go for Demarai Gray who has been superb. I heard Gray has a buyout clause at £3m (correct me if i'm wrong)
