***OFFICIAL SUMMER TRANSFER THREAD***

Recommended Posts

If we are looking at keepers, the Dundee Utd keeper impressed me over the two legs against St. Mirren. I'm not sure what his contract situ is however. I don't even know his name if I'm 100% honest. 

 

I've also heard a rumour and I'm hoping that's all it is, that Wallace is going to sign as a player for Kelty Hearts. He's already the 20s coach there...

Gordon as a goal keeper coach would be better imo. He's no better or worse than bobby and he's far from the keeper he was when he left us.

Motherwell's Alex Gorrin could be a good replacement for Djoum.

He looks good yes

 

As I often say, 25, good age. Good CV

 

Not one that would be incredibly exciting but squads are built on solid and dependable pros

Liked the look of McMullan and I see his contract ends this summer.

 

Always took his man on the outside. Good burst of pace and delivery. The full back rarely got back at him once he’d took him on.

Not wanting to start a long debate, but not heard any comment from Levein saying that we needed a keeper. Zlamal and Doyle will be our number 1 and 2 next season.

When will the club announce who is all leaving ?

Mark O'Hara has apparently been stuck on Peterboroughs transfer list. 

 

If we could afford him he'd surely be a good signing.

What was the rumour linking us with Liam Boyce, was it true or not? There is the Austin connection, plus he would be a great signing.

 

Charlie Adam was the other one mentioned in January, anyone think he might be interested?

Goal machine. Lower lever right enough but this is exactly the type of player Motherwell,  Utd or Killie will sign & he’ll score 18 + goals next season. We should be looking at him IMO.

I know quite a few are against this but I think playing Jamie Walker, in the number 10 role, gets you goals. Or him and Naismith supporting a striker.

Coner Washington is one we are trying to talk to. Austin's involved in this one. Wide right supporting striker. Ipswich and couple of division one clubs are looking too.

I'd take Greg Taylor at left-back for Killie in a heartbeat. Best left-back I've seen in Scotland in 18 months. Unfortunately he's on a long contract at Killie so no chance of signing him.

Something else mentioned to me a couple of weeks back...Rangers 2012 are wanting John Souttar, and part of the deal is Wallace returning. Rangers 2012 also want shot of Lafferty so may be part of a deal also, one or the other if not both. Don't know for sure but source is usually fairly reliable.

 

So you'd be happy to swap one of the best young defenders in the country for two players nearing the end of their careers who their club want rid of anyway ?

Thank feck you're not involved in our transfer dealings

And if Naismith was working with him as a coach  ( as has been mentioned on here before ) I think the lad would be on fire.

Wages could be problem. Ipswich would most likely be able to pay more, even the though they have dropped down a division.

So contrary to popular opinion Djoum is shite and has no offers he has several. 

 

Well I never. 

 

Bryson would be a great replacement. Naismith pal?

 

Craig Gordon please,  other than Craig all attack minded players required.

 

Perhaps we could move on Wighton and Vanecek if Maclean is staying. 

Don’t understand the clamour to bring Craig Gordon back.

This might help. The problem with him is he signed a two year deal last year so a fee would be required assuming he wanted to come to us and they allowed him to leave.

Aye, he's got a year left on his contract so would cost us money.  So has Craig Levein but you want rid of him would which cost an awful lot more if you take into account that the backroom staff might have to go as well.  Then you would have the possible cost of more again with your replacement.

Something doesn't sound quite right - or rational.

I think you are bending the issue a bit here Al. I am providing another poster with info he did not know hardly reason for your comments.

 

You are the first to criticise me and others for hijacking threads and yet it's ok for you to do it seemingly.

Cadden is such a Levein player that I'd be surprised if we aren't looking at him. Think if he signs he will either kick on to his early-Motherwell form and become a fan favourite or we'll get his later-Motherwell form and he'll be used as a brush to tar Levein with. 

 

Unless Souttar leaves I think all our signings will the in the Midfield/Forward area of the pitch.

Sorry, I put you in such a tight corner, Davy.

 

The point I was trying to make is that you seem willing (for the club) to bear the cost of removing the manager, and possibly his entourage, followed by the cost of a replacement and his entourage.   By comparison, the cost of a decent keeper is chicken feed.

BTW I think you are right that we should hesitate about paying a fee if there is a worthwhile alternative under FoC.

I know what you meant and you are so hypocritical. What do you mean "put me in such a tight corner". Anyone who reads my posts knows my thoughts on CL as you obviously do however the post you comment on has nothing to do with that topic.

 

This thread is about Potential Transfers to which I responded trying to give another poster some insight into a player he mentioned.

 

If you would like to start debating the pro and cons of a hypothetical CL leaving the club along with his "entourage" as you put it then start another thread and I will happily give my opinion.

You are right - it is about potential transfers and you can't look at these in isolation.  You must consider other factors such as money available which will be severely diluted if you have your way.  We might not even be able to pay signing- on fees for out- of- contract players.

The good news is that AB has a Budget for player transfers which she allocates to allow CL to sign players. She seems content with the offerings he has made  last season and it would seem that he will be at the helm yet again complete with entourage for next season.

 

So with that in mind then we should be ok in terms of being able to pay signing - on fees for out of contract players.

 

Who knows we might be able to even afford another player of the Wighton calibre and price.

Not sure this is 100% correct, but the following article listed that the training compensation we would be due for Cadden would be around £400k. If that is the case I can't see us going for him.

Not sure I would be that bothered with Cadden. Never been particularly impressed when I have seen him. If he is going to cost us £400k as well that makes him even less appealing.

I wonder if he will be leaving considering they have signed Shinnie from Aberdeen? He would be a decent signing and perhaps Naismith might be able to influence him coming to us assuming he signs of course.
