    Football BSider claim Harvey White is "desperate" for a January loan to get some minutes

    I mean I wouldn't rule out him being more likely to play against Rennes than Ndombele...

    Online news that Barcelona want Gil , offered the right price I would let him go, we're not in the position to hang onto players who " might " come good , we need players now to make a difference to the team , so from me it's a big thank you to Brian Gil and hope you do well

    There’s about 15 players ahead of him I’d rather see sold.

    So far he hasn’t done anything massively impressive but he’s only young.

    Can’t we convince Barca to sign Bergwijn, Lo Celso or Ndombele instead? <laugh>

    It's Barca. They'll probably offer to loan him for 8 seasons and give us a tenner in return.

    No way would I get rid of Gil.

    Play him on the left or behind the striker and he'll do bits. Assisted Kane against Pacos and helped massively improve Spurs in the second half against Arsenal when played in his preferred areas. Chucking him on the right where he's not an inside forward like Lamela and where he's mainly had Doherty alongside him isn't going to reap any rewards, no one deserves to play alongside Doherty.

    He's someone who we probably won't see the best of for another year or two at least but I'm pretty confident he'll be a proper baller.

    So we should look to sign Skriniar then...?

    We've been linked with James Tarkowski this morning

    Are we sure this isn't the club's way of making sure that Tarkowski misses our league match at Turf Moor no matter what?

    We're also being linked with Stuttgart striker (and absolute bastard to type) Sasa Kalajdzic

    Yes, that would be the same Sasa Kalajdzic who, after having an impressive 2020-21 with 16 goals in 33 games, has mad an absolute 'mare of a season where he missed the first couple of games with Covid, came on as a sub in a 4-0 loss to Monster Energy Dusseldorf, then injured his shoulder and hasn't played a second since meaning he's played a whopping 17 minutes of football all season

    So...loan?

    Reports suggest that we have taken Southend LB Charlie Sayers on trial

    ...of course, anyone paying attention to the Academy Watch thread would have known that two days before these reports were posted

    Mike Verwiej at De Telegraaf claims that Steven Bergwijn is not in Conte's plans, going so far as to say that Conte has only spoken a couple of times since arriving

    Given how Verwiej is basically a Dan KP for Dutch players, that likely means there's a crumb of truth to this, even if you take into account that since Conte arrived Bergwijn has been on international duty or ill

    So, with that in mind, what're the chances that PSV want him back - and, if they do, would they mind Noni Madueke coming the other way as part of the deal?

    And I just made a wisecrack about this...

    According to Korean sources, Conte has spoken with him, using Sonny as a middleman - although the original story appears to have come from those ever-reliable Turkish sources

    Lyall Thomas says we’ve offered Markanday a new long term deal but he’s considering his options as he wants first team football and there’s a number of Championship sides interested.

    Di Marzio says that we're not interested in Brozovic or De Vrij as both turn 30 next year, and we're looking at younger players

    Considering he was seen meeting with Conte and Paratici last week, I'm going to believe that there's a grain of truth to this

    So just a reminder of how old some players linked with us lately will be on their birthday next year
    Milan Skriniar - 27
    Franck Kessie - 25
    Dusan Vlahovic - 22
    Weston McKennie - 24
    Andrea Romagnoli - 24
    Benoit Badashile - 21
    Julian Alvarez - 22
    Kim Min-jae - 26
    Dejan Kulusevski - 22
    Mathijs de Ligt - 23

    So, are the people who were gnashing their teeth when some Spurs Community bod made up a rumour about Levy pulling the plug on ab£50m bid for Adama Traore we never made going to comment on Wolves lowering their asking price to £20m?

    Still arguably too much.

    Insigne and Perisic been quietly linked with free transfers in the summer.

    Definite yes to Insigne, big fan of his. Big fan of Perisic too but at 32 he probably won’t appeal to the rumours of us wanting prospects, mind you Insigne wouldn’t either but you can’t pass up on a player in their prime.

    If we have Di Marzio say we're not looking at Brozovic or De Vrij because of their age, that surely rules out Perisic too

    And Insigne. He's a year older than either of them.

    Perisic being linked again on a free for the summer.

    Goes against the rumours of us wanting up and comers but despite his age it’s hard to say no to a player of his quality on a free. Definitely wouldn’t be disappointed with it.
