    Mate at work has mentioned to me a couple of times now that we're going to be making a signing that is going to break out transfer record and put "bums on seats."

    Has anyone else heard about this ? TIA

    Ronaldo is available and would fit both categories.

    I cant see it..... Goes against what we've been trying to achieve in the transfer market recently.
    Plus I cant see our wage structure allowing us to sign that sort of player.

    Whilst we could probably afford to pay £1.5m+ for a player, I can't think of any player who would cost that much who would then fit into our wage structure, so I doubt this rumour, unless there was some subtle twist like the selling club subsidising the wages in return for, say, a buy back clause.

    Maybe a gay signing might put bums on seats?

    Fletcher?

    But I'd echo the post above - wages would be far more of a barrier for a marquee signing than any transfer fee would be.

    Are we finally going to sign Joe Allon or Keith Edwards?

    Sounds exciting, hopefully true!
    My guess is John Bostock, based on very little other than we need a midfielder and he plays for Lens

    By midfielder are you referring more to a defensive minded centre mid ?

    West Ham want £6 million for him allegedly. Even if we do break our record transfer fee, I can't see us spending that on him. He'd hardly be a 'bums on seats' signing in my opinion either.

    Dont know how true this is but I'd take a guess at Nick Powell.
