Monk keen on bringing in Swansea defender Kyle Bartley on a season long loan.

Heard from a reliable source that Rangers are looking to sign Dallas, hearing a 1.5 million bid being placed.

Can't see us selling him.

27 Jun 2016 23:14:35
I could see us selling him, but only if he doesn't fit what Monk wants to build, don't think we would do it for £1.5m though. Had a good season and didn't do himself any harm at the euros plus the crashing value of the £ will make him hard to replace with quality for that money. Slap another mill on then maybe.

Antonnson spotted in the training pics according to another site. It does look like him to be fair, so this deal looks like it's going through. Bit of a relief as I was expecting the worst as this should have been home and hosed last week.

Seems it was all to do with the Brexit thing MM. Leeds just wanted to check and make sure it wouldn't have any affect on the deal in the future, it taking effect over the next 2 years and him finalising a 3 year contract, looks like its all good though so it should sort itself out pretty quickly now.

I see we have entered the race to sign free agent Mcgovern NI keeper! Be a cracking bit of business if we can land him, he had a storming tournament, come on Mr Dallas do your bit of PR 😂 anyone else agree? 😎.

Not sure DJ. I wonder why hamilton have let him go?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jun 2016 19:52:47
He would be good but I see him more of a backup behind Silvestri/ peacock-Farrell or a new goalkeeper.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 16:28:56
What about Ross Turnbull? Don't think the Ireland lad would be any better than what we've already got.

MM.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 23:27:57
Turnbull is a good keeper MM but way too injury prone to rely on as first choice. For me Silvestri is a lot better in some areas of his game but McGovern is a better all rounder (and that won't do Peacock-Farrell any harm to be around) . In a lot of areas of the pitch I would take someone with a bit of skill and flair over a Mr reliable type but in goal or in CB give me the guy that you can count on to read the game and do the basics well, game in, game out, so yeah I'm pro McGovern, think it would be a general improvement if not a big one.

Agree0 Disagree0

Seeing rumblings that we are chasing Wales/ Reading FB Chris Gunter for around the £1m mark.
Little worried this signals the end of C Taylors stay with us. Having two really good FB's and decent, young cover in Coyle, it surely means we are expecting him or Berardi to go?

Believable0 Unbelievable1

25 Jun 2016 14:41:15
Doesn't he also play CB, so him joining could mean the end of Bamba or Belushite.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 17:11:27
Bellusci does look like he is going but we have been linked with a couple of CB's anyway. Gunter is a natural RB that can play LB or as cover for CB. I would find it strange for us to spend that much only to play him out of his best position when there are better natural CB options available for free (Wheater and Mariappa for instance) let alone if we are willing to pay.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 20:45:21
I reckon Charlie is gone anyway we can't compete with premiership football or offer the wages he'd be getting. It's just the way it is.

Looks like bridcutts still on our radar according to yep. Good player but how many midfielders do we need?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Jun 2016 14:39:12
Its not about quantity its about quality. Having said that I don't think Bridcutt is the right choice. We have 'Dave' and Cook. Problem with Cook is that he is still learning but his best position is a key ne an I don't think he is good/ consistent enough yet. He needs an experienced and quality mid fielder on the pitch with him to command the midfield and to bring him on. We haven't anyone of that type on the books. Murphy, Mowatt, Sloth, phillips etc are not good enough. The may improve but who knows. They haven't shown it yet. So I still think we need a midfielder (or two) in an attacking sense. Therefore not Bridcutt. A wide player. I have watched Dallas in the Euros. He is solid but his forte is getting back not going forward. We definitely need at least one centre half. I am not a massive Cooper fan. He's ok and will be the best we have at the start of the season unless we get a good signing on the books. That's not good enough. Hope the Swedish lad does well up front if he comes and maybe Fletcher.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 21:17:41
Bridcutt, or a player of his ilk, is key to us challenging up the top end of the table next season if we want to play high pace attacking football. We do have a lot of midfielders but Bridcutt was our only natural holding defensive midfielder last term. Look at Leicester with Kante or Burnley with Barton, having a solid tackler to give a bit of protection to the back four gives the attack confidence in bombing forward and adds an extra man or cover for a FB in Defense going backwards. £2.5m maybe a bit steep for a player Sunderland want rid of but if we can talk them down a little he is one of the best about at this level, proven quality, and he wants the move.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 22:07:41
Think the 28k a week is a stumbling block too gummie.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 23:11:46
Bridcutt has played enough football at Championship level Martyn_g to know he won't bring home that sort of wage. The fact that he has still stated he wanted to stay with us and that he is now getting Scottish caps, I've got to assume that he is willing to take a bit less (though maybe a key player wage £15-18k ish) and play games rather than bench warm.
As I say It doesn't need to be him, just someone like him, but (and this is a Kardashian size one) he is a proven entity, in this league and, just as important, our team. He wants to play for the Leeds shirt and he has drive and desire, something a lot of the Italian imports have seemed to lack.
Also update: most of the articles I've read have stated that Sunderland want to get back the £2.5m they paid, just read one that suggests they would accept £500k for him (Guessing with add-ons) . Not sure how true that is but would be madness to turn down a player of his quality at that price if so imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 10:30:33
Gummie I'd have him in a heartbeat, I'm more worried about clubs who will pay better wages than us for him like Brighton, Sheff weds. When I said how many midfielders do we need I was meaning let's get rid of dead wood, free wages up and go for better quality players so I couldn't agree more. Problem is who will want our dead wood? Are they worth a fee or giveaways? Will it cost to terminate contracts? We don't seem to be moving on these fronts yet unless monk wants to have a butchers at everyone when training starts. BTW when does training start and when's the board meeting with the dodgy Arabs taking place. We need that sorting to move forward. MOT.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2016 21:25:00
Great to read a thoughtful and interesting thread for a change.
Must remember to check out the rumours page!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 02:14:36
Think Sheff shot their metaphorical load last year, spent big and didn't go up, they could be quiet this time round.

As for trimming the fat, Bianchi was out on a loan to buy and they are keen to keep him, Sloth has failed to impress a number of managers, good chance he will go back to Denmark, probably on the cheap but if we aren't going to play him then fair enough. That leaves us with, by my count, Diagouraga, Murphy, Cook, Mowatt and Philips. None are dead wood but said last season that Philips would benefit from a loan and I still think that's true. Your then looking at 4 senior mids for 2-3 places (dependent on formation, Swamsea under Monk played 3 I believe) so an extra body would hardly be overload.

You could be correct about him wanting a look at a few before decisions are rendered though. Training usually starts around the first of July so we might wait till they get back from the training camp a few weeks after to see any major outgoings.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2016 17:50:10
What about the board meeting? The state of the Arabs worries me bro. Perhaps it should be them people are demonstrating to sell up.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jun 2016 17:17:51
It got put back 72 hours (which I think meant it would be today or yesterday) . I tend to agree Martyn, we sorted terms for Antonsson on Monday but we are waiting on them, how many transfers nearly went through last season then stalled at the last. Not saying Massimo shouldn't take some blame but you have to wonder if they have scuppered a few deals.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 22:39:16
So, GFH have not got a pot to p**s in. They do not have the funds to contribute to the purchase of new players. Enter Steve Parkin to make GFH an offer they cannot refuse.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

22 Jun 2016 07:25:57
That would be the best scenario and probably the best bit of business done this close season (getting rid of gfh) .

MM.

Please let this be the case.

22 Jun 2016 16:48:55
They might not have any money to offer but you can sure as hell garantee they'll ask top dollar for their share.

The price they'll invent off the top of their head will be enough to scare away any interested parties.

It's going to have to take someone with a lot of bottle, a fair bit of cash and not a lot of sense to pay over the odds for a small share in a club.

The only 2 options are a billionaire coming in to buy the club out completely and that isn't going to happen because let's face it, it'd have happened already.

The 2nd would be for Cellino to buy them out so Atleast when he comes to sell the club he's gotten rid of any red tape with regards to messing about with small stakes here and there.

I also can't see that happening so for now, we're stuck with an owner who wants to up the ante but doesn't want to pay for this special season alone and a finance company who have no finance to offer their own 'investment'.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 16:29:53
Antonsson signed 3 year deal. That's the good news I've been waiting for. Hopefully more to follow. Fair play to Cellino on this one, could be a gem.

£2 million with add ons mick, I have a good feeling about him.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Jun 2016 17:37:31
lets hope, and not another Erwin (not used for 1sr team)

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2016 16:51:53
He's going to have to dislodge Wood from that first 11 because at the minute he is literally our only 'decent' (and I use the term loosely) striking option.

How many strikers from foreign leagues like Sweden come to England and hit the ground running, 1 in 10, 1 in 15? .

He may be decent, let's face it, someone somewhere has to be decent, otherwise football wouldn't carry on lol.

I'm just reserving all rights until I've seen the lad in competitive action.

I certainly hope we've signed a good player though.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2016 09:39:53
Apparently massimo has agreed to meet the demands of Ashley Fletchers wages, reportedly 7k a week 😎.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

19 Jun 2016 10:53:29
well it's true talyor is on £2k hence he could be off.

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Jun 2016 12:35:06
I'd read 2.5 a week for Taylor and 4K a week for Cook. Paper talk, but if it is anywhere near how can we have a pop at them for getting their heads turned. Taylor could earn 10 times that at one of the lower Prem clubs.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Jun 2016 10:47:50
well its a pay increase of £500 that turn his head I don't think so.

Agree2 Disagree1

22 Jun 2016 16:53:20
I'm sure in their new deals they'll reach 12k a week.

Byram was on a fair whack before he left and they're both of that standard Atleast now.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2016 22:06:48
Swedish striker on way for medical Monday. We could have a forty goal strike force next season. Cellino's a dick.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

20 Jun 2016 16:08:48
Why not we only need two strikers to chip in with 10each as wood could seriously hit 20 a season when inform.
