Strange article to publish if it’s not fairly certain he’s coming to us?  What if in 10 mins it’s announced he’s joined Bristol city.  Dom would look rather foolish...

Would still breeze through one of our medicals. Bet the examiner wouldn't even notice the cast. 

Douglas Bader would breeze through one of our medicals!

Not really strange. All examiners are localised, but they their parent group Reach recycle stories. So they will probably reuse Dom's story with every club he is linked too


Fair enough, hope he chooses us if there’s any truth in the link. 
 

Borner, Dunkley, Iorfa.  
Seems a solid back 3 for what we need next season

£3.9m for Lees?

 

Cash in the chips!

Out of contract in less than 12 months, so more likely his value the cost of a bag of chips!

Agree, and I don’t mean to be disrespectful to Tom Lees, who is a very good defender, and who has served us well. There are a few issues though, like most of the others, he doesn’t look comfortable in a three. In a two, he’s better, but doesn’t have the same chemistry with Borner, that he had with Loovens. 
Probably best if he looks for a club where he will be a better fit

We've already made him impossible to offload by giving him a £25k pw contract a few years ago. Nobody is going to spend that much on Tom Lees after he's been average at best for the last 3 years.

It’s the same with a few of our players Perhaps, as I mentioned in the other thread, it’s time to be a bit more creative What a few clubs have done, in a similar position, is look for swap deals, even if it means we have to subsidise part of their wages. 
What we definitely shouldn’t do, is what we have done in the past, leave them sat on their backsides, still getting that big salary, while we bring in others to duplicate the position. For instance, I don’t really have an issue with bringing in Dunkley, as long as a defender is going out first

Yeh I’ve just got that horribly wrong haven’t I , meant to put Borner and then ship out either Van Aken or Lees 

 

Surely we would be looking at Dunkley or Venancio , don’t see us needing 2 centre half’s coming in

Could be worse 


Agreed. Not sure where it leaves us in terms of left foot/right foot balance. But having options without needing to put Palmer or Odubajo in a central defensive position should help.

I like the attributes Dunkley has and think for the price which will be minimal or free if I'm not mistaken, this is a decent signing. Dunkley seems like a switched on lad. He's got a degree in Sports Science which is more than most footballers.

I just spoke to a Wigan mate and he said Dunkley getting dropped was the catalyist for their good form at the end of the season. Didn't rate him.

 

But we should give him a chance, Wigan can make any good player look bad after all.
