Two in, three out?
“Yeah, of course. We’re looking to see if we can stretch the other defence a little more – someone able to run in behind and create that confusion. We’ve seen that already, that it has been a little too easy for opposing defences to cut us off.”
No, not fresh out the UEFA A coaching manual, but Thomas’ latest statement on this week’s transfer deadline.
There will be no fees, or offers of lucrative contracts and loans are unlikely, but a central defender and a striker are on the list for this week. Where and what aisle Steve Gallen is shopping in for those recruitments I have no idea.
There has been mumblings today of a Macauley Bonne return as a loan deal but Ipswich appear front of the queue there. Otherwise there are literally no, none, nada rumours out there.
Meanwhile Gilbey, Forster-Caskey and MacGillivray remain in the ‘for sale’ bundle.
To be fair to him, Thomas has at least stuck his neck out there. I am sure we won’t be alone in the bring and buy market. As always there will be a lot of moving parts, but at least there are parts….
