Transfer Speculation January 2016


Recommended Posts

Marc Wilson is the type of player Sunderland would sign. He might be alright for Stoke, but I suspect when if you were to take him out of that squad and put him in ours he'd be no more affect than the likes of Hutton, Cissokho et al. Would be a complete waste of money especially at the price mentioned.

Leicester agree Amartey deal as Inler edges closes to Villa

Daniel Amartey: Poised to join Foxes

Daniel Amartey: Poised to join Foxes

Leicester have agreed a deal to buy Daniel Amartey from FC Copenhagen, in a move that is likely to push Gokhan Inler closer to a loan switch to Aston Villa.

The Foxes, the surprise package of the season who are level on points with Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal, have yet to confirm the deal but manager Claudio Ranieri is due to hold a press conference on Monday afternoon ahead of his side’s FA Cup third-round replay against Tottenham on Wednesday night.

Ranieri is seeking to bolster the squad of the shock title contenders and Amartey, a Ghana international capped six times by his country, would become the second January arrival at the King Power Stadium after Demarai Gray joined from Birmingham for £3.75million.

FC Copenhagen say a fee has been agreed for Amartey’s transfer and that the player just needs to finalise personal terms.

A statement on their official website said: “A deal has been agreed between FC Copenhagen and Leicester City FC for Daniel Amartey.

“The agreement has been signed on the assumption that Amartey and Leicester City FC as expected come to an agreement on a few personal/minor details.”

FC Copenhagen chief executive Anders H0rsholt added: “We cannot turn down a transfer of this size because generally speaking, it is the best outcome for FC Copenhagen.

“We have been very happy to have Daniel here but it is part of our strategy as a club and a company to develop players to a level where they get so attractive that clubs from the biggest leagues will buy them for large sums of money.”

Gokhan Inler: Leicester City midfielder wanted by Aston Villa

Amartey started his career with the Swedish side Djurgarden before moving to Denmark in 2014. His arrival at Leicester is likely to trigger a loan move for Inler, with the Switzerland captain wanting first-team football ahead of Euro 2016.

Villa are interested in the midfielder, while a move to Schalke has not materialised. Inler has made nine appearances for Leicester – but only three league starts – since signing from Napoli in August and was an unused substitute at Villa Park on Saturday.

Inler is a shadow of his former self. He has been utter cack at Leicester and was cack in his final season in Italy too

Norwich are about to buy Timm Klose for £9mil and Steven Naismith for £8.5mil

Sunderland are putting bids in for players

Newcastle have spent over £20mil already

Bournemouth have spent over £20mil as well

Whilst we sit around not even spending a million or two on a player even though we need to spend or bring people in on loan to give us a chance to stay up!

£8.5m for Naismith, £12m for Shelvey, £8m for Grabban.


I am glad we are well out of it, I wouldn't want to be stuck with that **** dross even if it meant staying up.

We need to just take our medicine and go down.

A guy who cant get on a Leicester long ball team whose possession and passing stats are near the worst in the league.  Dont buy into the Leicester hype, they still are a poor side and we shouldnt be taking a player who doesnt get on for them!

I agree.  Think we can stay up though with a few smart Loans and purchases. Terrible signings above. Wouldn't save us and would become next seasons deadwood.

average players in the Championship arent cheaper

...and the so-called 'good' players are even more expensive, just look at what Middlesbrough spent last summer and how much Fulham paid for a 'proven' Championship goalscorer in Ross McCormack.

This is precisely what worries me about Hollis' comments, he's deluded if he thinks we don't have to spend in the Championship. The likelihood is that we will need a net spend greater than the one we had this season if we want to get out of that league.

I'd agree with that. Our net spend was around 8 mill over the summer. A decent goalscorer even for that level would cost you that alone. In fact given what Rhodes is valued at and what Fulham paid for McCormack that probably wouldn't be enough.

I have a horrible feeling the club will continue to do what it has done over the last few years and not spend enough to be competitive. This summer it will be to not spend enough to be competitive at the top end of the Championship though.

if we sign debuchy on loan can we sign any further players on loan from another premier league club?

I believe we can as Illori went back to Liveplop and I think you can loan up to 2 players from same league

Aston Villa could be closing in on a deal for reported targeted Gianmarco Ferrari.

According to Tuttomercatoweb.com, the FC Crotone defender’s agent is set to meet with Villa officials in London early this week to try to finalise an agreement over a January move to the West Midlands.

The report comes after the website claimed last week that the claret and blues were preparing a €3 million [£2.3 million] offer for the Italian centre-back amid rival interest from Serie A sides Genoa and Palermo.

Ferrari, 23, has been an ever-present for Crotone in Serie B this season and proved instrumental to their promotion push thanks to his strong performances in the heart of the defence.

The club currently sit in second place in the table after losing only two of their 21 matches and have conceded just 16 goals in the process – putting them one point behind league leaders Cagliari and five points ahead of third place Pescara with a game in hand.

Understandably, they are reportedly reluctant to sell Ferrari at the halfway stage of the campaign, but Villa’s rumoured bid could be enough to persuade them into selling their star stopper.

Where the former Parma product would fit in Remi Garde’s immediate plans alongside Jores Okore, Micah Richards, Joleon Lescott and Ciaran Clark remains to be seen, but his potential arrival would seem to suggest that the Frenchman is approaching the current transfer window with both the future and Premier League survival in mind.

If Leicester are a poor side what are we?? [emoji32]

There's not a player at our club who would get near the Leicester 'long ball' team.

They are a very average team, playing at the top of their ability, through good organization and a speedy forward who runs on to over the top balls which averts any danger.
