It seems like we’re almost done in the window but there could be movement both ways tomorrow. There are a few players that may need to leave to get football and that could free up spaces for potential new arrivals. We don’t have a great record of getting deals done on deadline day in recent years but there’s always the hope we could do it when the next one rolls around.
Charlie Taylor – It’s the obvious one. Premier League clubs want young talented English players and Taylor is all of them and more. No doubt he is good enough to play at that level but he isn’t showing us 100% at the moment and that might be the clincher for him to go.
Potential Replacement – Tyler Denton has just bagged a new deal and he’s a player with potential but Ryan Verboom has been the most linked left-back. I can’t see a deal like that going through tomorrow so I would expect Denton, Coyle and Berardi to fill the void if Taylor did leave.
Luke Murphy, Toumani Diagouraga – Murphy has been linked with a move to League One Sheffield United and Toumani Diagouraga has been linked with a move to Rangers to team up with former boss Mark Warburton as well as joining South Yorkshire side Rotherham under new manager Alan Stubbs.
Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu – The Luton midfielder impressed against us last week and rumours are that we have had a bid rejected earlier today and we could well return for the player. I’ll be honest I’ve never heard of him to be honest but it’s not the sort of player I’d expect Monk is currently chasing.
A Striker – Of all the positions I think we need a striker should be top priority. Pontus Jansson would have to come good for that to be true as we need to sort our defence out and the Swedish international is hopefully the answer. We need a striker to put chances away and put pressure on Wood and Antonsson, players who I rate too.
