It’s been claimed that French Under 20 international centre-half Harold Moukoudi arrived at Bodymoor Heath earlier this morning for talks and a medical.
Sky Sports made the claim in one of their ‘understands’ pieces, but when speculation reaches this level there tends to be something in it.
We have been linked with the Le Harve youngster for the past few days and it’s said we have beaten off competition from Middlesbrough and Celtic for his potential services.
The deal would obviously be a loan to buy arrangement but I dismissed this one when I came over it earlier as I fail to see why we’d rely on such an inexperienced youngster given Tommy Elphick is so unfavoured.
I wouldn’t have thought with ongoing Financial Fair Play issues we’d yet be committing a speculated £7-8million fee on a player who will take time to settle and would have to be considered one of the future when our immediate need is now.
Wait and see.
