    Sign both Gimenez (free transfer) and van Dijk. Sell Lovren and Klavan

    Gomez, Gimenez, van Dijk, Matip. Sorted.

    Would it be madness for us to have a sneaky punt at Jonny Evans? I think he ticks the boxes for what we need at CB.  He's an organiser and a leader; he's played for a big team and in big matches at the top level.  The only issue is that City's interest has made him more expensive than he should be.  I think I've talked myself out of it actually.

    I can't help feel that any defender we buy is in for a baptism of fire with either Mr. Wibbly or Mr. Wobbly behind him. In the absence of available keepers, this window, any new CB will need to be given time to adapt.

    It's nice to see the Echo are looking at new centrebacks. Would be more encourages if I knew our club was doing the same.

    They found 6 better than our current lot, not just 5. Wonder what the prize is

    He's been good in the few games I've seen. Looks fully recovered, a bit rusty at times which is natural but pace and movement seems to be there.
    Averaging 5,2 headed duels won pr game so far, and has scored 7,05 for the games he's played so far at Whoscored.

    Not sure if Soton will do business in January. I'd have thought the arrangement is that he can leave next summer.
