Alex McLeish has said the deal to loan Robbie Keane is close, but not done yet.
Speaking to the herald.ie McLeish said.
‘It is not far away but I don’t like to commit myself until it actually is done. The club have sanctioned the deal, I missed out on Robbie last year, he has got good experience, he is good in the dressing room and is highly motivated.’
Well that’s alright then, let’s not develop our own further and just do Keane a favour because he wants to stay fit. Let’s not find the next Robbie Keane and just sign him (on loan) a decade too late.
Although thankfully on that point, McLeish also admitted he thought about loaning Chelsea’s Josh McEachran but it’s not likely to happen.
‘It’s something we thought about, but I’m not sure we’re going to do it.’
We shouldn’t even be thinking about it, we don’t exist to develop other club’s players when we have more than capable youngsters at the club crying out for a chance.
We should’ve learnt that from Kyle Walker.
He also babbles a bit about not adding to the wage bill with regards to the Sung-Yong link, but we can all do the maths and with the players no longer our on wage bill, that shouldn’t be an issue anymore as we all know.
