    Now would be a good time to go for him given his stock has probably dropped a little since the Summer. Where to fit him in would be tricky though, would have to be as Martial backup unless we decided to give him a go as an attacking left back. He could be a very useful option to have when we're chasing a game and the opponent is sitting deep. Swap out Shaw. Don't think we'll sign him though as we should really be using the transfer money elsewhere.

    No problem with what you are doing, it's great, but is there a way you could stick to more reliable sources? The Express, in particular, have never, ever, printed the truth about anything at all, ever. And most of the tabloids are not seen as reliable sources in the Twitter thread.

    I just can't pick and choose Colin.

    I find what's on a number of newspapers and post them but each one of us has the right to believe or not believe what has been printed in each particular newspaper.

    I agree with you that a number of these are rags but i try my best to stick to what has been printed in each newspaper and the choice is here for everyone to evaluate personally what seems truthful and what doesn't.

    Please try to understand my predicament! :(

    He is a quality player and still young. He'd be very useful as a left attacking option as he can actually cross the ball. He's a very different player to Martial and Shaw so a useful option. Just don't think we could afford him as well as all the other squad restructure.
