Sanguine Max Meyer to..... Crystal Palace. :shock:
That's one hell of a coup.


They have got to keep hold of Zaha, don't know how they have to be fair. That would be the best bit of business they could do this window.

The guy's been available on a free all summer. Why didn't anyone bigger pick him up?

Reading around it, seems he's been a bit of trouble at Schalke, and is asking for a lot of money - Arsenal, Liverpool and Marseille were all interested. I think the feeling is he hasn't kicked on as many thought he would when he captained the German Olympic side at 19. Sounds like his wage demands stopped the bigger clubs taking a punt.

Everton sign Lucas Digne from PSG for £18m. Good signing that. Part of their title winning sides, spent last season on loan at Roma.

Must say this window has been refreshing. No pissing around*, clubs making deals happen in good time for the window closing before the first game, when clubs will know where they stand.

*except Spurs, of course.

Where does this leave Leighton Baines though? Surely won't wanna be a benchwarmer at this stage of his career.

Ben Gibson goes to Burnley for £15m.

I think that’s a good move for club and player. Dyche gets a good tune out of his centre half’s so Gibson could push his way back into England contention if he has a good season.

Fulham apparently close to another deal - Arsenal's Calum Chambers on loan for the season.

Not sure if mentioned but Dwight Gayle to West Brom in a loan swap for Rondon.

Think West Brom have played a blinder there :lol:

Can't see him playing much tbh. Mee and Tarkowski seem to have the 2 spots pretty well nailed down.

Maybe. Without doubt they both had good seasons last year, but I can see him getting his chance and taking it.

For England he'd still be a good option for that left sided centre half if Southgate continues to play a 3. I'm not suggesting he'll replace Maguire, but he could well force his way into the squad if he's playing and playing well.

Guardian reporting that Courtois has failed to report back to training at Chelsea as expected this week.

Hope Nick Pope can get himself a move away in January when he is fit. Would be awful for him to be stuck behind this waster.

West Ham close to adding Lucas Perez and Carlos Sanchez to their squad.

They've had an outrageously good transfer window

Got a feeling Chelsea are going to have a shambolic season. Might have a look into the odds of West Ham finishing above them this season, reckon theres money to be had.

Interesting reading. Arsenal and Liverpool certainly underachieving with their spending.

A 'waster'?
Hart has lost form completely, but was a very able performer for England and City for years. Luckily I don't think Dyche is the sort to bollock around and unless Hart is playing like one of the world's best again, Pope will be back when he is fit.
Not sure Hart deserves the term 'waster' though.

Edit: forgot Heaton. Having now remembered Heaton, this is a weird move for Hart. 2nd, and then 3rd choice?
