In his latest interview with The News Peter Storrie talks transfers - click here...
Judging by what was said, this is where we stand?
Lee Naylor: Not much really given away - someone we have 'looked at' but with others, including the Zimbabwean trialist - more to follow - we have had, this is not looking like one we will pursue as a 'priority'... I would say rightly so all in all.
Amr Zaki: Mostly 'agent talk' apparently, although Storrie admitted that we have spoken to his agent - the 'issues' with his personality and the disrupted influence he could have seems to be a concern, is this why no one else has yet taken him on? He made reference to the Portugal 'incident' saying 'we generally have a very, very happy camp in terms of the players. It's a good relationship,' so do we want to risk Zaki rocking the boat?
Quality wise worth it - but at what price, and a price will not be paid loan wise until we know what his attitude is like and what we will get... I guess with money at a premium we cannot afford to waste it!
Onismor Bhasera: The Zimbabwean trialist mentioned above, who people have said looked 'ok.'
Seems to look like one we are trying to bring in as we have applied for a work permit so he 'could' be our left back cover but, also one for the here and now potentially - although there are 'concerns' about him being granted this permit, which we would appeal...
Mark Viduka: Someone that we have been 'heavily linked', no pun intended, with. Storrie said: 'a fit Mark Viduka is still a very, very good experienced player and this is a special year for him because he has the opportunity to captain his country in the World Cup.
'We would be fools not to want Mark here.'
So, he would 'interest us' but he is way behind on pre-season so at the moment I would imagine, from this, he is someone we would like but would look to take a look at others first?
There you have it...
In a nutshell though: Naylor - a maybe but doubtful.
Zaki - Hmmm lets see what his attitude and application is like but not looking anywhere near as 'advanced' as is claimed.
Bhasera - signing pending a work permit being granted.
Viduka - quality but lacking fitness, as always, so someone we would want but will look to others first?
Will this be the next base touched on...
