Hull city after chris kirkland. Steve bruce looking for 2 keepers since getting promoted to prem! Bruce worked with kirkland whilst he managed wigan, but chris's career has been blighted with injuries. Also chris has said he is comitted to the club, however will 1st team football in the prem tempt him? Source the sun and other news sources!1

Watch the kirkland deal, players and managers are always saying they will stay and then leave, let's face it if someone offered you double you wage a would u leave? look at the likes of adebayor he said he was happy at arsenal and said he was never going to leave them, the next day he signed for man city hope he doesn't go but he might even though he said he wouldnt

Apparently we are looking into a few players at the moment. There have been no offers for any Wednesday players at the minute. And lastly apparently 2 ex loanees are top on DJ's list.

I was told this by one of the backroom staff.

I know for definite that Davies isn't comin to swfc he is going to the MLS seen as he told me

Agree1 Disagree12

He turn down the move look at fact before you come on there. tv Former Blackburn defender Ryan Nelsen, who is Toronto's coach, has been keen to lure the 36-year-old striker to the MLS outfit.

Davies, who will end his 10-year stint at Bolton this season, did contemplate the switch before deciding against linking up with Nelsen.

"It has been a complete roller coaster since first speaking with Ryan Nelsen on 18th April. As it stands today I will not be leaving for Toronto FC as reported, " Davies said.

"My young family and I were naturally very excited about the opportunity of going to Toronto on a short-term deal but after legal advice we felt that certain obstacles put in our way were too large to overcome.

"Whilst it has been the toughest month of my 10 year BWFC career I remain, as I always have done, 100% committed to the club. you lie and get shoot down by me haha

Getting rid of Coke would be a huge mistake, unsung hero of the year

rarely wastes possession, solid tackler, good dribbler, great with both feet, excellent positioning and a good first touch

when he's on the pitch he runs the midfield, which is damn hard when you're paired with useless immobile lumps like olofinjana and classless hoofball experts like prutton

Agree5 Disagree3

Grant McCan*

Agree2 Disagree1

I agree coke is solid but need some creativity in midfield I think when lines is fit he can provide this but he's just not had the chance to get involved this year definately need more creative midfielders

Agree2 Disagree0

I asked but he won't tell me names. I personally believe he knows who DJ is looking at but he doesn't like the prospect of losing his job over it. But still no offers for out going players, and DJ has put in at least 2 inquiries, to "Ex-loanee" teams, looking (Preferably) to sign them if not another loan spell. (I think we can guess who DJ is looking at) Also DJ has been inquiring in the lower leagues for multiple players.

Dont shoot me down as this is not an official source but heard louis saha out of contract at lazio and jones looking at him as he wants to move back to england. 33 now but could still cut in championship

Doubt it because of his wages but if it did happen I personally think it'd be a good signing

I was talking to a group of fans yesterday and one guy mentioned we are looking at the midfielder Simon Gillett, could be a good signing and is the right age just coming into his prime. UTO!
