As creator Smat is this for confirmed ins and outs or just in?

Cos Kramaric out, Leicester to Hoffenheim, done. If so.

I had high hopes for Kramaric - ones of those that looks like an absolute world-beater in a weak league and then fails to make the step up to a better league, it seems.

Leicester have signed a world champion!

Ron-Robert Zieler will join the Foxes from Hannover for 3.5 million €

He'll just sit on the bench though.
I am not that sure. He is a brilliant keeper, who would be easily the number one for the most nations in europe. His problem is that we have a lot of world class keepers at the moment in ter Stegen (Barca) Trapp (PSG) Neuer ( Bayern), Leno (Leverkusen) and so on

Of course he's not going to be number 1. He'll be a Schwarzer replacement. The only player in the back 5 that might be in danger of losing their place to a new signing would be Danny Simpson and even then it'd be harsh. It's not just about the percieved quality of a player, we aren't going to break up that group unless it's forced, ie injury, suspension.

Also, is this confirmed?

Nothing
Would have thought he'll start the season as backup to Schmeichel, but a German GK with senior international caps (at a crowded position) being 1st choice at his Bundesliga club for a few years, coming into the prime of his career, won't be a reserve with no chance to start.

I like what Leicester are seemingly doing, many a time we see a team 'outperform' one year with a lot of previously-thought-of-as-average-at-best players doing really well one season then receding back to the norm thereafter; and a lot teams wrongly assume that because they did great this one season they'll be doing the same for years to come. Time will tell if this happens to Leicester, but odds aren't on their side, and having backups who could genuinely be eventual improvements is a good strategy.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
I don't watch Bundesliga... Is he any good then?

Yes. Suits Pep's style well, but he's fairly injury prone.

I remember when he was being touted as the next Peter Schmeichel. He's about 12 months older than me and when I was 15, he was being called the best young keeper in the world.

Total fall from grace.

If Gundogan doesn't break down (again) £21m will seem like an absolute bargain. He is a fantastic player when he's available.

That shouldn't be a problem. City have got an impeccable track record when it comes to keeping players fit....

Just seen Middlesborough have signed Viktor Fischer. His progress has been halted a bit by injuries but I remember he was supposed to be the next big thing coming out of Ajax a few years ago, could end up being a very good signing.

Still only 21 as well - should be a great signing for them

Looked real quality every time i've seen him play. seen a few reports he's out until 2017 at the earliest but he seems to think he'll be back for October

30 million! I guess everyone will be overpaying now with the new TV Deal.

That's a thorough scouting job you've done there mate - do you work for a club?

Eric Bailly cost Villarreal £4.4m in Jan 2015 and Man Utd £30m 17 months later.

That's either terrible negotiating or representative of generally bad and lazy scouting across the Premier League (A few exceptions aside, Kante etc).

Apparently he played well in first leg when they won and kept a clean sheet but was injured for the 2nd leg.

Mourinho knows a good defender when he sees one, excited to see how he fits in.
