Our defence can't keep a clean sheet neither for love nor money, goalkeeping not so sure anymore, we don't have a centre forward in the club at the moment, whereas we are stacked to the rafters with midfielders, so yep, that purchase makes perfect sense to me! 👍

If you tell me we will have another 4-5 signings this window than that's fine but something tells me we won't. I would very much welcome to be shocked!

Apparently we have an option to buy after 18 months for 56 million quid. Pounds, not euros. Is this guy at that sort of level? Ndombele price?

Certainly wouldn't see him anywhere near that price now. 18 months or whatever to assess him makes it an acceptable deal although I wouldn't see any point in it at all but for Sissoko getting crocked.

Well we have 18 months to make a decision and Sissoko will be around 32 by that time, this guy will be 23 by then, so progression wise it looks good, we will have a ready made replacement who is acclimatised to the club etc ready for when Sissoko is coming to the end of his time with us. In the meantime he can help fill the gap caused by injury.

Took a look at Gedson,only clips but a fair amount of them. He is very instinctive sees the space well have a nice clean tackle in him

Too early to tell but I guess we'll know by the end of the loan period.

I'm not bothered about his tackle mate. Let's just stick to his playing attributes.
Its also the ability to snap the ball from a player up the field
By the way I don't understand why you would be critical of that comment
He is also a DM I believe

I just want to know how hard and big his tackle is personally
