    I do find it hilarious that the court portraits all appear to have Jordan Henderson in the dock

    Nacho Sanchis (Valencia correspondent for AS) claims that, if Valencia fail to sign Arthur Melo, they'll look to loan in Harry Winks

    While my concerns about Valencia I posted when Bryan Gil was mooted to return there on a full-season loan, as behind the scenes they remain a dumpster fire, I still maintain that Winksy is made for La Liga football and could revitalise his career

    His new home is about as far away from Scotland you can be before you're in the English Channel <laugh>

    4.8 million Scots in Canada
    Yes <laugh> BUT Scots have travelled a lot, there are as many in Canada as there are in Scotland for example, so Devon is just round the corner if you go by sea.

    Dan KP’s said a few things:

    Sarr and Gil could be loaned to aid their developments.
    Brighton have an interest in Reguilon.
    Ndombele been offered to Toon by his reps but Howe unconvinced.
    Tanganga could be sold for the right fee.
    Ndombele, Lo Celso, Reguilon and Winks are training individually and from different times to the first team.
    Club has accepted it’s likely they’ll move around deadline day/ final week - something I’ve suspected anyway.

    Diario AS claim that Sampdoria made a bid for Harry Winks, but he wasn't interested as he's waiting to see if anything with Valencia develops

    Today will mostly be spent watching Spurs Twitter argue whether this is or isn't Lucas Paqueta...

    I don't. Might depend on who we can shift and when, though.
    Really need another striker, in my opinion. A Cavani, Dzeko type would be fine.

    I think backup for Dier and a creative midfielder are the two most pressing issues remaining. Richarlison's ability to play down the centre is sufficient cover for Kane imo. In the two seasons we've not had any cover for him whatsoever, we've not only lost goals but invariably the knock on effect has been to weaken other areas too by playing players out of position (one of usually one of Son, Lucas or Bergwijn).

    I wouldn't complain if we don't manage to solve them this window, as overall we've exceeded all of my expectations.

    Rumours of another wide attacker (Zaniolo, Depay etc.) also don't seem to be going away which is puzzling as we seem well stocked there (Kulu, Son, Richarlison, Lucas, Perisic).

    I agree, the remaining incomings will probably depend on how much we bring in for the flotsam.

    I think we still lack a player who can potentially unlock a defence. Someone we can bring on for a CB if we need a goal but someone who can also cover out wide.

    Nah, mate.

    I think two more in but I think they’ll be final week signings. A creative attacking mid/ another wide forward and then a CB to cover Dier, either an up and comer or an old head.

    Immediate priority is outgoings, though I also think most of those will end up happening in the final week too.

    Be disappointing if they are, still need someone with creativity and guile in midfield imo. Also as pretty much everyone else has said, a CB to compete/cover Dier too

    Mike McGrath is saying we’ll make Romero’s loan permanent, personally thought we’d already had, it’s a no brainer it was gonna get done anyway.

    Also mentions we could sign a creative mid before the end of the month if the opportunity is there.

    The Mail are claiming that the club is a little irritated with the four transfer listed players. Apparently all have had solid interest but have been hesitant towards committing to moves.
