Kevin Keegan and his squad head back to the Emirates for tonight’s league game against Arsenal, and itâ€™s looking like nobody will be coming through the January transfer window before Friday morning.
Kevin Keegan – meaningful transfers will happen in the summer
Kevin talked about the transfer situation:
“We are set in the summer to add to the squad in a way I think will be really meaningful, as opposed to now where you are taking chances.â€
“If you get one who is an absolute top-notcher, who has played at the highest level, then you might do it.â€
“But at this moment in time, there have not been that many put forward to us who fit that criterion that you can realistically get.”
We still have time to get say one player through the door. If we can capture somebody like Giles Barnes from Derby County, we think that will be a solid buy, and heâ€™s one for the future in a way. And it would be good to see how he fits into Kevin’s free flowing style of football – very well we think.
But we think Chris Mort and his staff will be working hard through the end of the season to negotiate deals for the players Kevin has identified he wants. So at least it should be an exciting summer for the transfer market, given that January been a bit of a dud, following the fantastic news that Keegan was coming back to the club.
