The January Transfer Window thread 2022 - That's all folks!

"Cardiff City boss Steve Morison has said the club's pursuit of Middlesbrough forward Uche Ikpeazu is off.  The Bluebirds registered their interest in the striker this week, but after Boro insisted they would only be keen to offload him if he was sold, the deal was brought to an abrupt end.  Boro boss Chris Wilder on Friday morning name-checked Cardiff when asked if there had been interest in the player, however Morison clarified that no deal will happen before Monday's deadline.

"Yeah he is a player who did well against us previously," Morison said. "We have looked at loads of options, we need help in the group.  It’s not something we are going to be able to do, because they want a permanent deal and we are not in that market.  It was over very, very quickly.  I couldn’t believe it. I had a quick chat and within 10 minutes it was all in the press!  It was literally a chat which started and ended with nothing happening. So, there's nothing happening!  There's not a lot more to say on it. You’re not going to all of a sudden see him come through the door."

Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Not a lot of money to go around atm, the players we have will be on decent wages so too much for Div’s 3-4 and for the Championship they would have to be key targets to bid and pay what the players and club want.

So it maybe a case of taking loans with wages fully or partially paid with a commitment at the end.

or we keep them but our squads too big.

So for FFP would it be better to cancel contracts and take the hit or just loan them or play them in u23.

Not an ideal situation but a hit is going to have to be taken somewhere either financial or squad harmony with players training but never playing unless really stretched.

I'm far from an expert on it, but surely cancelling a contract would be worse than paying it over the course of a few years.

Ikpeazu has a three year contract, if we tried to cancel it then surely we'd have to pay out that entire contract in this year, rather than over 3.

3 little hits.

We'd do better selling Ikpeazu in the summer than cancelling his contract.

We’d be better off just loaning him out and paying half he’s wages. Cancelling he’s contract would be the last option.

I’d like to keep Uche personally as what he offers is something we don’t have really elsewhere. He is in American Football terms part of the special team, someone who can come on and do something in a way that totally shakes up how we normally play.

Next 3 days will be fun. I look forward to the usual contributors adding all the boro related transfer links & tweets on here.

Wilder would ideally like 2 new players in so lets see what the next 72hrs brings.

I've never been so into a player I've barely seen touch a ball before as I am kavanagh. Really hope this is a good move for him, too often in recent years have we sent big prospects out to sit on the bench

Ryan Giles still not signed back to Cardiff on loan yet. 

They're signing Alfie Doughty instead. 

Whether that's because Giles is going elsewhere or staying at Wolves, who knows?

Seems fair enough for him, he's had a great time every time he's been there and he'd certainly have the backing of the fans.

I hope it's a successful move, I wish it had worked out for him here.

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
