a huge miss.. we have a great squad.. fantastic.. but I hope these long term losses don't end up costing us. thankfully we have a fair few loan spots still available. and signing Greenwood in January would free up another spot.
I would still fancy Nat Philips on loan from Liverpool.. we've had a sniff around before and I think he could possibly make a good long term addition to the squad.
CD 12 Nathaniel Philips - Liverpool- Loan
GK 13 Zack Steffen - Manchester City - Loan
ST 20 John Duran - Aston Villa - Loan
RB 31 Ben Johnson - West Ham - Loan
pretty much the same names I band about all the time.. with the exception of John Duran.. south american, aston villa striker.. surely nailed on?
Indeed. But why would Zack Steffen come back to Boro to cover a short term absence when we already signed a third choice keeper in Jamie Jones, assuming we also lose Tom Glover (personally I think Glover misses out being picked for Australia)Stranger things have happened
That leaves us really short. I know we tend not to make short term transfer decisions anymore but i'd expect that this news might expedite our search for a long term right back in January which would free up Rav as cover at centre half.
