Djiksteel has done well so far this season, I’d actually be interested to see how he plays at DM. 
 

He certainly has the athleticism to do well there, providing he’s comfortable with playing the role 

I think he could be interesting playing centrally in front of a back four, breaking up play, dropping back when required and useful at defending set pieces. At least Warnock will have some idea of how to play to his strengths and get the best out of him for the benefit of the team whatever tactics he employs.

We saw on Saturday McNair looking classy at CB and then gave us the advantage of pushing him further up when we were chasing for the equaliser. To be able to have that luxury without making substitutions can be a massive benefit. In that regard, Howson, Dijksteel and McNair could all be invaluable this season.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

Billic confirms Zohore did not make squad last night for Carabao cup game due to "footballing reasons". This despite him seemingly naming an entire squad of players who he deemed need minutes.

I accept with Akpom we might not be in for Zohore but would not totally rule him out

I agree but it's never stopped us before.

AA is still only 32...not exactly past it (though maybe I wouldn't play him every game).

He's still arguably better than anyone in our current squad.

If he could agree terms, I'd be happy to have him back for a season or two.

I think the Zohore boat has sailed for us, unfortunately as I think he'd be a good addition. We are looking at a loan for a 4th sriker who's parent club are happy for him coming off the bench rather than starting. Don't be expecting a big name.

I would guess Keinan Davis wouldn't fit that bill as Villa already have him coming off the bench for them, if they let him go out then they probably want him playing pretty much every week.

I would look at Joe Hardy from Liverpool. Only made 1 appearance and a handful of games for Man City and Liverpool  development teams. Has scored in those games and the most telling stat is 40 goals in 80 games for Brentford reserves. The lad obviously knows where the goal is - could be worth a punt on loan as opposed to a non scoring journeyman. Can play wide right also

I sense it will be a Nmecha type. Someone we barely heard of.

100%. Youngster from a PL team with no realistic prospect of game time this season. Which tbh is fine for a 4th striker.

Hopefully loans start moving a bit faster once PL squads are settled and they know who is surplus to requirements.
