Bowler going to Forest for £4m and then being loaned to Olympiakos. That's nice, he carries Shitpool.
Well we didn’t accept any offers for Pedro and Sarr had a deal lined up with Villa lined up .Seems a little odd an in demand foreign (as in not a local lad with community, family and loyalty to the Club who nurtured him) player would want to stay with you rather than go to Everton, Newcastle Villa etc in the Prem? Why would that be? Fishy.
Not much rumours about for us despite this, but I’d be hoping for a centre half and maybe another midfield player to fill those 2 spots, ideally left footers for both but seems unlikely at this stageThree players out on a season long loan to add to the three who were already out before today. Of course they will each have January recalls available.
We suddenly have a couple of spaces in the 25 to fill…
Helps Olympiacos I assume rather than the other way around. Or perhaps they will pay some inflated “loan fee” as a way of injecting some cash to fund this splurge. So many ways it’s provides an advantage. I assume there will be some quid pro quo going on on future transfers for Forest as well as you often see with the Watford/Udinese connection. Sometimes it’s Watford getting the help, sometimes Udinese to help keep the books balanced for both.I get that but how would this particular transfer have any effect on ffp
Agree, especially as the squad got seriously stretched at times last season. We’ve a centre half less than last season where we had a game of playing only fullbacks in a back 5! I wonder if there are any free agents about, we dipped into that market after the window last season with Thorpe and SnodgrassI’m very surprised that we’ve left ourselves a bit short and let three go out today and not replaced either in the 25. In reality we are playing with 23 now, considering our heavy activity in the market this summer.
Not sure what isn't very much for Wigan but we sold Edun, a LB, to Blackburn this time last year for around £400k-£500k IIRC who also had a year left on his deal, and attackers always have a premium.Edmonds Green and Anthony Scully from Lincoln our two deadline day deals. No idea on the fee for Scully but he had less than a year left so won't have been very much. Tried for Adam Reach but he turned us down, I'm guessing to stay on a much fatter wage at West Brom.
Biggest surprise of the window, despite being told by the Egyptian media that we were signing half of their league's players, none of them came to fruition. Shocker!
