    We have more keepers than outfielders, but Idem and Foster are permanent members of Rooney's first team squad (they travel with them incase of a last minute injury).
    I'm not convinced by any of the other keepers we have in the U23 squad

    Apparently the keeper is ex-Liverpool & Man City and the centre back is from Southampton.

    I hope we have no real interest. Just happy to string (Man City and) Middlesborough along right up to 11.00 and bugger up their plans. Have that Gibson you curly haired ******.

    Rooney has played alongside him and also he is with the same agent as Rooney too.
    Decent age, out of favour and 1 year left on his deal come the summer so could potentially lead to a permanent deal.

    Quite right and Bellingham was a Brum fan who signed a pro deal with them to ensure they would get a good fee for him.

    "Derby County are close to completing a loan deal for Stoke City striker Lee Gregory.
    The 32-year-old is set to sign today and is expected to be in the squad for Tuesday night's Championship clash against Rotherham United."
    Fit then?

    I think this should be the only metric ever applied to anyone you sign. Ever. We absolutely lost our way signing impressive players, without a single thought about where they should go in the team. Most of the Cocu-era signings made sense, but you'd probably have to back to the Clough era as the last time we genuinely signed players we needed, rather than signings players just because we could.

    I’m definitely in the not writing anybody off camp after CKZ.
     
    I think the dismissal of clough type signings is an interesting one. I get there was the Ben Pringles who weren’t world beaters but Clough’s signings were the foundation of the club for 2/3’s of a decade where we played some pretty decent stuff. Granted if your coming from the perspective that we are entitled to be a Premier league club than a desire to have ‘bigger’ name signings makes sense if that’s how you view things. I’m happy with a bit of progressive change where we steadily improve over the next couple of seasons on the playing and personnel front.

    Not a bad option for a minimal outlay, offers something different to Kazim and fits with the energetic hard running style that Rooney has instilled in this team.

    We do have to have a bit of a reality check about transfers. 
     
    Players do have a say in the matter. We are a team just above the relegation zone, playing on a mud heap, wondering whether wages are going to be paid, beset by scandal, undergoing financial difficulties linked to a dubious takeover, anxiously awaiting news of points deductions .... need I go on?
    WR will need all of his pulling power to get anyone in. Only players like Gregory, who have the experience of playing under restrictions, or really young players hoping to pit their wits against grown men in the championship, will want to come.
    At least Gregory has a bit of go about him. If we can find a way to pair him with CKR, no defence will have an easy time. He’s also pretty good in the air for those delicious crosses we get from full back positions.
