Jason Steele to Arsenal
“The story is complete nonsense. We have no intention of selling Jason for £4m or any other fee”
So that sounds like a no from Boro’s Chief Exec. But why would Arsenal want him? They are over-burdened with promising keepers (Mannone, Fabianski, Szczesny). What they need is a proven and reliable stopper who can go straight into the side and cause fewer hear-attacks than the current motley crew. Mark Schwarzer anyone?
Verdict: Won’t go.
James Vaughan to Leicester
Cursed by injury, James Vaughan’s performances at Palace have hinted at a promsing future. Leicester have the money and are on the look out for a striker. Everton might, however, not play ball. Their strikers are in dismal form; Yakubu, Beckford and Saha have 2 Premier League goals between them. Moyes might just be tempted to give Vaughan another go.
Neil Danns and Julian Speroni to the Premier League
Stalling on signing new contracts, these are two oustanding performers who appear to be tiring of slogging away at a struggling side. Both are also at “now or never” age in terms of having another crack at the Premier League.
Verdict: They will go.
