Looks like we are being linked with any keeper who has an Italian name:-
He'd be an excellent acquisition.
Only a few days before we know who NW has got in mind to strengthen the team.
And possibly who is leaving?
Another one for the future?.........
Not impressed. A journeyman already at 19.
It's sad on Christmas morning I know ........but do we really need this guy in midfield?
He's just done his knee, 9 months they're saying!
Bad luck for the lad.
Tutonda gone to Barnet on 2 year deal. Danny Gabbidon not happy about it.
The revolving door will work overtime in next few weeks.
Good player in our Development side and did well on loan at County. To be fair he never had a chance to show what he could do in our first team but this is another example of a player coming though the development system but not making the grade for the Championship. Is the system wrong or do the big clubs tie up the better young players in their big squads?
Or is he, like the others you refer to, just not good enough for Championship football?
Managers are paid to manage and make their decisions based on what they see in training and other games. Just because someone looks good at development level it doesn't follow they will do well I'm the first team and we can't afford the risk of throwing them in.
I wish him well for his future career as I do for the others who follow him from the club.
Many of the youngsters who come through the ranks at bigger clubs don't make it either and eventually filter out down the leagues until they find their level.
Another one for the mill.............
a trio of clubs are chasing Scunthorpe United goalkeeper Luke Daniels this January.
Scottish Premier League outfit Glasgow Rangers are joined by Championship duo Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town in the pursuit of Daniels.
Luke Daniels has been a key part of Scunthorpe’s success this season as the Iron sit third in League One ahead of a potential promotion chasing season.

The 28-year-old has kept 10 clean sheets in 24 appearances as Scunthorpe continue to impress in the third tier.
The former Manchester United and West Brom youth ‘keeper has been at Scunthorpe since January 2015 but his contract is due to expire at the end of the current campaign.
Both Cardiff and Huddersfield are relying on loans (Amos and Ward) as their main stopper so they might fancy a permanent move for Daniels this January.
They are joined in the race for his signature by Rangers, who currently sit second in the SPL.
And another rumour: -
Only 11 sub starts for Derby since Jan 2016, would need some TLC to get match fit but from what I've read he is whippet fast and can score goals, can also play upfront. Worth a go in my opinion.
Could be if the price is right. 26 years old - that Scottish guy we were rumoured to be looking at is 29 so no long term strategy there.
Bit of a concern he is not a regular at Derby though. I guess Johnny Russell, Tom Ince and Ikechi Anya keep him out. Wiki says he is a striker who can play left wing. His strike rate of 27 goals in 243 appearances doesn't indicate that. Also may be off to the African Cup of Let's Really Piss Off All The European Clubs With African Players so might not be around until late January.
Jonny Hayes still has a couple of years left in him at 29, but setting the Scottish league alight still doesnt fill me with confidence of his ability to do it in the Championship. I suppose we gave the likes of Ross and McNuggs a chance from the Scottish league and they turned out superb. I'd prefer to go for someone proven, but have faith in Warnock. So far not much has been out of place, Hoilett and Bamba have been great so far (all be it the Bamba spat) and he has offed the flops. I'm still not completely sure about Zahore being the saving grace of the strike force!!
Another one doing the rounds.
Cardiff are weighing up a move for David Davis as the Birmingham City midfielder enters the final six months of his contact.
Nottingham Forest are also tracking the situation with discussions over a new deal for Davis at Birmingham understood to be at an impasse.
Davis is a key player for Birmingham and Gianfranco Zola is said to have been very impressed since taking over from Gary Rowett.
Can't quite see the point in bringing Davis to the club when our real needs lie elswhere. From what I've seen of him he's more of a defensive midfielder and with Gunnar playing like he is, it's unlikely both would start together in the same side.
It's the creative side of our midfield that could do with a boost. Whitts has been great in that role but he aint gonna last for ever and if he was out injured or suspended I suppose Ralls is the only contender for the "No. 10" role at the club.
We need to spend whatever money available on a genuine playmaker, frontman and pacy wideman - about £15M should cover it......
Cardiff City, Sheffield United and a number of other clubs are interested in signing Northampton Town’s Paul Anderson according to a report from HITC Sport.
The 28-year-old winger signed for the Cobblers this summer following his release from Bradford City and has become a key player for them following their return to Sky Bet League One. He was one of their best players when they continued that stunning unbeaten run from last season at the start of the year and still remains a positive despite the recent downturn in form. So far this season he has scored six goals and has laid on four assists.
But the problem Northampton have is the deal they currently have with Anderson. Because the winger left Bradford City due to injury reasons more than his ability, he suffered a broken leg which meant he failed to break into the first team, the Cobblers didn’t want to take that much of a risk with this signing so only gave him a one-year deal. Now though that is biting them on the bum because several other teams can sense a bargain as Northampton may not want to risk losing him on a free transfer in the summer.
Leading that race are Cardiff City and Sheffield United. The Bluebirds new boss Neil Warnock has made it no secret he is looking to change his squad a lot during the January transfer window so he can save them from relegation while the Blades are hoping to sign a new winger this window to help them secure promotion. Also believed to be in the race are Wigan Athletic and Scunthorpe United.
