Hmm, doesn’t seem to be going away this one. Looks a tidy player certainly

I’m trying not to get too caught up in this one but you’re right, it isn’t going away it’s all over social media being posted by well respected reporters

Reading and Birmingham in talks with his agent apparently. Hope he doesn’t talk to Popa.

Are we now going to play 2 up front then? As I can’t see either this chap or João being happy on the bench

Have to expect both Baldock & Novakovich to go now

What an odd transfer window!

Indeed. Let's hope they don't go to the same night clubs and get their cigarettes at the same newsagent.

Very pleased with Rafael, Joao and Pele in that they really fill quite obvious holes in the squad. Combined with Morrison, Miazga, Boye and Adam it's very good business.

Not sure about needing this guy as well. It's getting into the territory of restricting pathways for Academy players again.

I've been impressed with Barrett and Olise. Loader has plenty of potential too. Plus Holsgrove and Frost.

But with Meite, Barrow, Boye and then Puscas we're heading into territory of not much room for minutes for them. Especially if Swift moves forward to accommodate Pele.

I may just be suffering from shock at signing three players in one night. And there is of course he inevitable injury crisis to cover.

Rather we forked out on Ejaria if I`m honest, but the way we are spunking money out I wouldn`t be surprised if they both come in.

Why is everyone on twitter getting so excited about this? The rumoured fee?

Seems to be an average serie b striker?

Perhaps we know we can’t get Ejaria ?

Have I missed something re. FFP? Has it been rescinded? Or was Aluko's transfer fee actually four-pence halfpenny not £7.5Million? Or maybe his salary was £15 million a season and now he;s out on loan that comes off our FFP liabilities?

I am confused.

I think we all are, but I like to think NH is an astude business man who knows what he is doing. unlike gormless. he wouldnt be throwing away money if it was going to tip us over the edge.

Well, we've not paid a fee for anyone bar Joao and, despite all the talk of £5-7m, apparently that's just £800,000 up front.

I also doubt the wages are that excessive. Despite the headline wages of star players in France and Italy, the average wages aren't that high. Torino's average is £24k/w, Sampdoria's £22k. Half on Monaco's squad is on less than £20k a week.

To put that into context, the average Championship wage is £25k per week.

If you're going to break FFP, break it by enough to mitigate the point deductions would be my thinking.

Puscas could be a great signing for this league, although it's a bit of a surprise. I suspect Loader, Olise and Barrett will still get chances in the squad if he comes. Baldock and Novakovich less so.

Impressed with the business that's been done today but all this talk about where the money is coming from makes me suspect someone is on their way out for a decent fee.

Will be shocked if both Novakovich and Baldock are here come deadline day. Can see Novakovich going more than Baldock as it stands.

Although we would still be able to loan/sell overseas until the first week of September.

This isn’t a rash choice as I posted on page 1 we were interested back in 2015 https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.getr ... 526690.amp we’ve obviously been keeping tabs on him

God I really hope Howe hasn’t been stupid enough to take that gamble.
