      Romano says we have made a formal bid rather than just interest.

      Never heard of this player. Any watchers of the German league seen him play?

      This season's Arthur? :D

      I think we're going too fast. We still aren't even sure Hertha Berlin (or insert any other German club of your choice) isn't going to hijack the deal and sign him instead.

      What I love the most about this deal is his age. Right up there in the age range you look for when rebuilding.

      All jokes aside, I hope he's one of those hidden gems of an underrated player and most importantly, I hope he's the first of two transfers for that position.

      I remember he played well for Japan at the World Cup finals last year as the holding midfielder.

      I'd rate him a decent player, but no more than that.

      Must be someone else coming

      I would be as annoyed as the next person if this is the only signing

      Encouraging. As much as I'm taking the piss, I'm really hopeful this guy can be a good under the radar signing for us, especially if we end up adding another DM (more long term).

      You would hope a younger player comes in as well but jm not against this type of signing.

      Experienced player to come straight in

      We lost a lot of experience when Hendo, Milner and Fabinho left, so from that perspective it makes a lot of sense to bring in someone his age. Still surprised by the supposed link, however.

      And also expect that he's someone to hold the fort until we bring in someone else to be the everyday starter.

      Has to be a rotation player right ? No way we are signing a 30 years old guy as our main DM, that doesn't make F***ing sense.
