Transfer news: Birmingham sign new Mascherano
Bowyer, meet your new team mate
Yeah, load of games are getting cancelled, but do you want to know what kind of people never abandon their work stations, not even for a second? Journalists. Especially sports journalists writing about transfers for papers like The Telegraph, The Mirror, The Guardian. Here’s what we’ve gathered from these heroes today:
Most people are still just getting used to the original Javier Mascherano, and now the word on the street is that Birmingham have just landed a newer version of the player. Namely Michel, a young Spaniard who they signed today from Sporting Gijon. He set them back £3 million, which still leaves a cool £37 million in the kitty.
In other exciting transfer news, Patrick Vieira’s trip to Manchester City has been confirmed. As has Chelsea’s interest in bringing Sergio Aguero into their attack – albeit with a considerably smaller bid than was expected. Everyone thought they’d bung £40 million on the table, instead they went for £30 million.
Landon Donovan has completed his loan move to Everton. Blackburn, West Ham and Spurs are all reportedly set to have a bash at landing Eidur Gudjohnsen. And it looks like Ryan Babel might yet live to fight another day at Anfield.
