Now while we wait for Manchester United to surprise us all (in a good way) and actually sign a player, here’s another player going out on loan.
From the official Manchester United website:
Manchester United club statement
United midfielder Chris Eagles will spend the next four months overseas after signing for NEC Nijmegen on loan.
The Dutch club proved to be a successful destination for another young Red last season. David Jones spent the latter part of the campaign in Holland, scoring six goals in the process.
Eagles was also out on loan last season, firstly at Sheffield Wednesday and then at Watford where he joined United goalkeeper Ben Foster in Aidy Boothroyd’s promotion-winning side. It was his second spell with the Hornets – he spent four months with them during 2004/05.
Ummm, ok, that’s fine n dandy, but why the hell are we sending out all of our young players on loan and not bringing anyone in? Even Liam Miller is rumoured to be heading out of Manchester United and going to Sunderland (although his departure, if confirmed, will be met with some happiness).
Little more than 6 hours to go, and desperation is creeping in. There’s a rumour that Manchester United have signed a deal for Reo-Coker – if that’s true we will have something to look forward to. After losing out on Hargreaves, I’m afraid its not much.
