Guest Dev Posted January 8, 2009 Share Posted January 8, 2009 Well there aren't many decent central midfield players at the age of 27 available on a free transfer for next year, who we realistically have a chance of signing, but here's one. Current Socceroo incumbent DM Jason Culina. Currently plays for PSV but apparantly the wife wants to move back to an English speaking country, to the point that he's prepared to move back to the A-League if he can't get a deal in the EPL: http://www.smh.com.au/news/sport/football/a-league/gold-coast-lure-culina/2009/01/08/1231004199536.html Realistically though if he moves back to the A-League he'll lose his place in the NT and miss the World Cup next year - if we have someone who could string a couple if coherent sentences together we should be able to get his attention. No other EPL clubs are in for him yet. He's demanding small wages. He isn't going to win the premiership but he's far better than re-signing Nicky Butt. He still has a good engine, can tackle, and makes sensible passes. Why aren't we on the list of clubs trying to sign him? He's in and out of the PSV team, but he frankly shits on our current options. Is £10,000 a week for a central midfielder really too much for us these days? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
