So. Feels a little like a pulis transfer deadline day today. Nzonzi goes to seville and begovic to chelsea. Softened slightly by the arrival of van ginkel and given for no fees yet again, great job on the finances.

Reports saying badu is now agreed and waiting, glen johnson should be agreed next week sometime at a cost of around 4million. Again outstanding imo.

Aaaand low and behold shaqiri doesn't want to come and reports suggest its going cold.

So what would it mean for the team, van ginkel has hardly kicked a ball so its a doubt over his fitness but I believe chelsea hold him in high regard and was only offered to us as a way of pipping man utd. Badu adds energy, needed after nzonzi's long overdue departure(3 transfer requests later) but its johnsons signing that interests me, with cameron and bardsley still at the club this has to mean cameron will be moved into midfield this year

Van Ginkel finished last season strongly and quickly became a starting XI player for Milan.

Looks like Badu rumour was all agent and paper talk again. smoke and mirrors.

Hughes has said he's still got plenty of irons in the fire though. Joselu signing came out of no where, looks like we'll have to wait and see.
