    Cant say I'm overly excited by this one and the fact it is another loan is not really good enough imo. Come the end of the season we are going to be losing him (possibly), Boyata, Benkovic, Burke and probably Brown. Maybe even Lustig as well. Most managers should be planning for the longer term and it appears that we are not doing this.

    It ses Rodgers has wanted to get two powerful runners with pace in and that's what he has got.

    I know people are sceptical about Burke but watching some videos from his Boro days and Leipzig at times he can run through people like they arnt there and knows how to finish as well.

    Bayo has scored 17 goals in 23 league games so far this season , ten of them being headers, with these three coming in it looks like Brendan might be looking for players to be more direct when we are having trouble with our passing game.

    And on Boyata, he should be out the door at the nearest opportunity.

    Shat himself at Ibrox again and still thinks he can waltz about like a big shot commanding a move.

    Bayo sounds like a Morelos type of player.

    I always thought big O’Connell was decent for you.

    Right back and at least one centre half for me regardless of whether Boyata can be shifted if not.

    We know that Benkovic isn’t with us come next season, so if we can get someone in just now (and preferably bump Boyata onto the sideline) he gets settled in for possible CL qualifiers.

    I also think it makes sense for the current title race as although Boyata came onto a game, he showed yet again at ibrox that he can’t fully be relied on and it just gives them more encouragement.

    If we can get quality players in for those two positions (and Bayo) it will be a right good window and a much needed boost for the fans.

    From the clips I seen he is quite similar in terms of personality, as in he seems the fiesty type.

    This is something I think we need.

    We need a striker who operates in between the penalty spot and six yard box, if this guy can get the tap ins the way Morelos does we won't drop as much points second half of the season.

    He was decent, don't know how his career has went but probbaly not at the level we need.

    He did fine for us, but I think most of us felt he was never quite going to be good enough to feature regularly or improve enough in the long term to be a mainstay.

    I know he started off well at the club we sold him to. I can’t remember at this point which club that was.

    Right now we're in a title race and if he comes in and makes us better i'll be delighted.

    People have forgotten we got Arzani in to do this job and he's here next season.

    I’ve been of the opinion that Brendan will be offski after this season and the more loan signings that come in has me more convinced that will be the case.

    Either way, there is a title to be won in the here and now, so whatever it takes then let’s get it done.

    I think we'll buy a striker and a right back.

    We have also extended plenty for the future on longer contracts on Brendans orders.

    Well the one thing that is clear to me is that regardless of whether he stays longer than this season or not, Brendan plans to leave us in good shape in terms of average age and quality of squad. In comparison to MON for example, who left an ageing team. We will have sellable assets even if he isn’t here for the long haul.

    I hope I am wrong and he stays on for a few more seasons.

    Not a player transfer but McInnes being linked to Stoke City, I would imagine if they make an approach he may take it up.
