Transfer Window: Bad news for Man City, and more…
Old McDonald… didn’t have a work permit… ee i ee i… oh!
Like a house of cards crafted by a tremoring alcoholic during a hurricane, today’s big transfer deals keep collapsing within nanoseconds of first appearing.
Hull will be keeping hold of Stephen Hunt, thank you very much Wolves. Scott Loach will not be heading from Watford to Spurs. And McDonald Mariga was so close to signing for Man City, until a nerdy gentleman – probably wearing glasses – coughed and muttered something about work permits. No luck there.
In business that has actually happened, Nicky Shorey is going on loan to Fulham until the end of the season. Benni McCarthy is definitely joining West Ham. And Mido might be next.
Much more to come… hopefully.
