JJ, Jeffers, Euell and Murphy all to leave Tuesday?
I was just wondering if we would be clearing out any 'deadwood' tomorrow before the transfer deadline, when I saw on the BBC website
that JJ looks likely to sign for Norwich on loan for the rest of the season. The Canaries are clearly in the market looking to replace Dean Ashton, but are being thwarted by clubs demanding high fees - the words pot, kettle and black come to mind!
Other less likely news stories doing the rounds are that Blackburn are set to sign Francis Jeffers
for a nominal fee (read undisclosed) and with apparently one more first team appearance set to evoke a further payment to Arsenal, Franny's days do seem to be numbered. Jeffers was said to be touring the nightspots and bingo halls of Blackburn tonight to see if the move suited him!
Other late gossip involve Southampton preparing a summer raid for Matt Holland
, a move which would re-unite 'clean shorts' with George Burley. This sounds like a probable tale, unlike (I pray) The Sun
one that says that Spurs are to make a late bid to sign Danny Murphy in an exchange for Anthony Gardner
- christ, this will give me nightmare's tonight. Anyway they will have to find him first, and I for one would rather us keep him close as he and his family get over whatever problems they have, if this is the truth of course?Addicks Diary
reported earlier that Steve Bruce is now in the hunt for defenders and not Jason Euell, although early morning reports say that he could still move Tuesday but perhaps only on loan, a decision that may alert Middlesbrough again.
As for any interest in Kevin Lisbie.....
