Bent (M) signs, Euell move hits snag
I'm not overly excited about the signing of Marcus Bent
, and particularly the cost involved, but being a superstious type I will once again write these immortal words: "I have some slight reservations about the signing of Marcus Bent. The price represents a gamble. He is not an out and out goalscorer but then who is for less than £10m?"
It clearly spurred Darren onto eat my words
, so hey why not.
West Ham are said to have tabled a £7m bid for Dean Ashton
, mine and others preferred signing but clearly out of our price range I would suggest.
Word on the grapevine is that Jason Euell's proposed transfer to Birmingham has been delayed. Steve Bruce wanting to widen his options, and maybe look for an available player who has played more regulary than Euell in the last year.
An interesting and perhaps worrying statistic is that Euell, despite missing the last year of his career, has still scored more Premiership goals than Marcus Bent.
