    Lewis Baker in on loan from Chelsea. We tried to sign him on a two year loan last Summer, but at least we'll have him for the final half of this season.

    Another central midfielder is one of the last positions I would say we need to improve, but hopefully he can do a job and reform his Chelsea/England youth teams partnership with Swift.

    Correct. Meyler doesn't even have a standard nowadays.

    Very much flattered to deceive with us. Wasn't great tracking back after losing the ball. Spent a fair amount of time being a sub for us. He didn't get to play his preferred position of the "number 10" but then that's where Dack plays so never was going to tbh. Mainly used on the wing.

    Wants to play more, hence why he went. Derby/Huddersfield seem to think he was ok, just hasn't worked out with us so not a huge concern he has gone.

    Watch him score when you come to Ewood :laugh:

    After James Collins again. We wanted him at the start of the season but lost out to Villa.

    Thought he would have been a great signing in the summer but at his age, after another injury and not having played much since last season, who knows how much he’ll be able to do. If he’s fit then exactly what we need, but knowing our luck he’ll get injured after half an hour and that will be that.

    Still time for someone else to come in for him anyway.

    Do brilliant keepers play second fiddle for sides in the bottom half of the Portuguese league?

    He might of been there to cover injury. He played 9 or so games there, so he did play. Maybe they only had one fit keeper when they loaned him, now they're out of injury etc? Maybe his agent got him it as somewhere to go in his home country, maybe he's proper wank. Who knows. But he's been a great keeper in pre-seasons for United.

    Sign a right back and we're done on the incoming front I imagine, £300k bid rejected for Accrington's right back, hopefully we can come to an agreement as he seems promising.

    Ship Andy Boyle back to Ireland, Michael Crowe potentially going to Accrington on loan (Sorry lads) and find another loan move for Kevin O'Connor and its been a solid window on paper. Shame Tommy Spurr has been returned injured, again!

    Has Pereira got good distribution? Problem we've had over the last few years is we're trying to play passing/possession football, but not had the right goalkeeper to help out. It was fine when Al-Habsi was in goal as his shot-stopping was so good that it made up for, but our current crop are not on the same level.

    Also means we must have a couple of keepers leaving, as we already have 3 first team goalkeepers battling to be first choice - Mannone has started 6 games this season, Walker 7 and Jaakkola 13.

    Our manager has confirmed that he would still expect another 5/6 players to leave this window as our clearout continues.

    Bordeaux have enquired about Markus Henriksen.
    Ben Woodburn has been linked. No extra details on that other than he is currently injured.

    What seems to be gaining traction is a centre-back coming in on loan from a Premier League on Monday. No names although I've seen Dan Burn mentioned.

    Great little player, quite a pocket dynamo, we know some players will be sold, though not sure he will be one of them, but the Smith/Walsall/Sawyers/Henry rumours will always abound.

    Can you afford him? We signed him for £1.5m rising to £5m, and we've not yet seen anywhere near the best of him due to injuries. England u20 international at the time of his injuries, and he's come back into the side looking like he's not missed the last year.

    We'd put an almighty premium on his fee, and seeing as we're getting £4.5m for the most average of midfielders this window, and I honestly can't see us being interested in offers less than £7.5m for him. He's got two more years on his contract, and we get the most out of our transfers.

    When we signed him there was a feeling in the club that he'd eventually go on to represent England, given his ability and athleticism, but this feeling has probably been tempered given his injuries. He's come back for a few games recently and he's already been our best defender this season!

    Sawyers I reckon is a more likely move to be honest, but I think the club knows that losing Sawyers would likely see us drop back into a relegation fight. So perhaps letting him leave during the summer would be the most likely.

    But you can have McEachran and McLeod on freebies if you want? :D
