There are worse things to invest inHave to say I am a bit surprised, as we are supposed to have a wealth of young talent already coming through at the back. Pennington, Kenny, Holgate, Galloway, Browning, Foulds etc...are we stockpiling young defenders?
Martinez made it clear that Eto'o was an intergral part of the team and there was no chance of him leaving - the next day he was sold.I wouldn't put any money on it. Martinez has made it clear again and again that he doesn't like to rely on the January window, and also that the current squad doesn't need strengthening at this point. Miralles will be staying put, there's no real doubt about that. If we're going to loan Gibson out then why get him cuptied unnecessarily ? The Yarmolenko stories look like nonsense to me (the player recently signed a new contract). Byram's contact ends in the summer : I reckon we are interested in him, but it's a question of whether to put a bid in now or risk waiting until May.
