Apparently we have already signed a Left Back. Seeing off competition from Marseille we have signed 31yr old Razvan Rat on a free from Shakhtar Donetsk. Age concerns me but Allardyce loves’em old so shouldn’t surprise me I suppose, but certainly a step up from O’Brien or Linda.
Next up is a rumour that we are going to try and sign Nikica Jelavic for a cut price deal. Reason it’s a cut price deal is because Jelavic hasn’t turned out to be the striker Everton first signed last season.
If people remember we tried to sign him two seasons ago but lost out to Everton. In their first season he scored 11 goals for them but this season he has been very poor. Hell even Carroll has scored as much as him this season and Carroll has been injured for months! So are willing to listen to offers lower then they paid. Again he isn’t a step up from Carroll in my opinion and we would be lucky to get 10+ goals out of him a season!
