Official Summer 2019 Transfer Rumours Thread

There are good players and interesting names in Leagues One and Two.

 

We need to improve our central midfield, and AFC Wimbledon's Anthony Hartigan certainly should be looked  at.

 

19 years old already made 40+ starts for Wimbledon and played key role in helping them survive in League One this season.

 

Clever on the ball, with great touch and passing range could prove as a long term replacement for Barry Bannan (although he is still far of that level).

 

I don't know much about him, but I think it's certainly an area that we've criminally ignored in the past. 

 

Of course, there's always a element of risk, but then again no signing comes with 100% guaranteed success. I think the way current make up of the squad...i.e. a lot of players who have been there but just fell short...there's certainly room to instil a couple of players from League's One and Two with potential within our squad. 

 

I'm not saying we chuck them in and watch them sink or swim (like Luhukay perhaps did to an extent)...but as squad options, there could be some value to be had.

Arsenal and Man U already after the happy world of Aribo.

  

Bielik looks good too, if Forster Caskey came back from injury ok I’d look at him too. Playmaker 

 

Didn't realise he was on a free transfer. Even more reason to explore the option of signing him.

 

I think if a Championship came in for Aribo, up against offers from Arsenal and Man Utd, they might stand a good chance. He'll want to continue to play football. He's a young lad that's played in non-league and now took his chance with Charlton. 

 

The option of regular first team football in the Championship might be favourable to spending a few years playing in the Under 23's league (especially considering the limitations regarding Premier League sides loaning players out from next season). 

 

Re. Forster Caskey...he was a decent prospect, but having missed the entire season through injury, not so sure he's worth taking the risk for.

Ipswich interested in signing 6ft 9 Gillingham keeper Tomas Holy on a free 

 

If Dawson or Wildsmith are loaned out, maybe this guy can fill our bench? 

 

 

I've no idea if he's any good ... but 6'9" :duntmatter:

Yes but there's more chance of hitting him rather than scoring. It would be even better if he's a lard ass.

Until we know if Joao, Fessi, Rhodes, Nuihu, Fletcher are all going to be here next season. I think up front is left alone, should one leave them look to replace. 

And Winnall

Those leagues are worth looking at. I mentioned Sonny Bradley and Jamal Lowe last summer, Bradley moved on a free and will be in the championship next season. Lowe attracting a lot of interest and we probably couldn’t afford him now within FFP. 

 

Will be interesting to see what happens to the likes of Aneke, Norwood, Hamilton and Marquis this summer as they’ve all had good seasons.

to be honest, if Winnall is still here at the end of the transfer window our recruitment people need sacking. Personally, I would have liked to have seen him at the end of the season get some game time but its obvious Bruce doesn't rate him so we need to move him on.

I heard Aneke was scouted heavily by Villa when Bruce was there. Bearing in mind we now have the recruitment bloke that worked with Bruce, I'd say there's a chance we're looking again.

Anyone seen Marcus Maddison's stats from Peterborough? 

 

Played 40. 

Scored 8. 

Assists 15. 

 

I would imagine every single championship club is looking at him. Attacking midfielder. 25 year old.

His stats are good, and on his day he looks a handful, other times, he can seem very ordinary Plenty of clubs have looked at him, but none have taken the plunge

The Norwood lad at Tranmere interests me. Playmaker who scores a lot of goals.
