Dos Santos/Boateng/James 'talk'

Dos Santos/Boateng/James 'talk'

Getting our transfer embargo lifted I something that we are battling against, well we continue to battle again but 'if' we get this lifted it has always been said that Avram Grant has players lined up and Giovani dos Santos has been a 'long-term' name 'linked' with us...

Apparently, in The News of the World - as is all the transfer talk here - the Spurs midfielder/striker will join us on loan next week 'if' this embargo is lifted.

I would not be surprised to see the guy arrive on loan to be honest, his name seems to have been 'linked' too many times and for too long, although 'should' this happen where does this leave us with Jamie O'Hara?

You cannot loan two players from any one premier league club, can you?

The first talk of players going today sees Kevin-Prince Boateng linked with a move to Sunderland?

A £7m price is 'said' to have been put on his head whereas Sunderland want to pay only £5m.

Although are we not going back into this whole we CANNOT sell him anyway due to the Fifa ruling about him being unable to play for a 3rd team in anyone season...

Finally, David James' move to Stoke fell throw on Friday although this deal 'could' be resurrected this week.

Yet again this 'Pompey source' said: 'there are still talks going on to resurrect the deal. We hope a compromise can be reached.

'James seems keen to go, and manager Avram Grant knows he has an able deputy in Asmir Begovic, so it is hoped a compromise over wages can be reached.'

To be honest my stance remains the same with James, I still think he is a fantastic keeper but sometimes needs must and I think we MUST offload him as it will be in everyone's best interest.

Although we cannot do Stoke, or anyone else, too many favours in this, or any other, deal - then again we cannot cut off our nose to spite our face can we...

i think dos santos would be good, very attacking, but very injury prone and almost untried at this level, i do think he would do well and would want him anytime but at the expence of o'hara im not so sure...

It's not a winger we want... Belhadj, Smith, Webber, Piquinoone, Dindane.. they all claim to be wide men rather than out and out forwards .... goget somebody who can score goals.. goals win games.. won games get points..

I hear Stevie Gerrard is unhappy at Liverpool, why doesn't SAF buy him with the £50m he is going to invest in the Club?

Also would rather have O'hara in this transfer window and maybe if we have the money in the summer buy Dos Santos.

prince cant be sold because he has played for 2 clubs this season... plus we cant loan two players from 1 club and also we have a transfer ban.. plus ohara cant play for anyone apart from us or spurs so expect him back.. maybe we could buy dos santos or strike a deal with spurs they owe us money for the crouch defoe deals.. they must..

i think dos santos's national position is up front, and he scores regularly for his national team.

Why are we talking about transfers, loans and freebies? We can't do any of it for the foreseeable future, so a completely pointless exercise (Sorry to be so negative)
