Paul Lambert has admitted that any move for Kenwyne Jones or Jermaine Defoe ‘won’t happen here’ as rumours continue to spin themselves into a frenzy.
Speaking to the media ahead of the Everton game Lambert said he had heard of all the rumours, but quickly dismissed them:
‘They are two top players, but that’s not going to happen here. I have seen the rumours linking us with some players, but a lot of them aren’t going to happen.’
More cryptically he adds about future signings:
‘I have never stopped looking, someone might come in. We’ll have to wait and see. You can never be sure until someone walks through the door and they are actually here. I think it’s well documented the type of players I’m looking for. If they tick those boxes then we will have a look at them.’
Which to me again sounds like he’s after players who aren’t seeking the move primarily for a wage increase, which would explain some of the freebies we presumably haven’t made a move for – that many fans think we missed a trick on.
I just really can’t see the window closing without at least three new players coming in. I’d imagine Henke is working overtime at the moment.
