Rumour Mill-Baggies Bikey as Black Cats Paw Eagles

Rumour Mill-Baggies Bikey as Black Cats Paw Eagles

Two of our players were linked with moves to Premier League clubs over the weekend.

Chris Eagles is expected to move on and has been linked with numerous Premier League clubs. The latest of these would appear to be Sunderland. The 24 year old former Manchester United winger has made it clear that he needs to play in the Premier League if he is to realise his ambitions.

Spurs, West Ham, Everton and West Brom have all been reported to have an interest in signing him and the Baggies are also believed to be interested in defender, Andre Bikey.

West Brom boss Roberto di Matteo is chasing the Cameroon international defender according to the News of the World.

Bikey,25 though still has two years left on his current contract at Turf Moor and it is understood the Clarets will be hoping to raise around £2.5m from any sale.

Just hope our 'Ins' can be sorted out quickly enough, if we lose any of these potential 'Outs' so that by time of season kick-off we have a depth of squad in quality and quantity that gives us the best chance possible of an instant return to the Prem.

Has Bikey stated that he wants to leave then ? If he's happy here, then we need to keep him for the back four.

Sadly, after last season I'm not that concerned about the inconsistent Eagles, I'd prefer to give that bloke from Posh a go on the wing and see if he can pot them for us as he did for them.

I don't want to sell Bikey. He is our best defender but Laws doesn't seem to think so. He thinks Cort is our best defender... oh dear.

Eagles can go for me - Great on his day but no enough days. Bikey has thrown a spanner in the works for me with his performance against Crouch. I would have been happy for him to leave because I think his concentration ( or lack of) could be very costly. I now think we should possibly be looking to build our defensive unit around him.

Got to agree folks for Eagles I'd let him fly the nest tomorrow for the right price someone must be telling him he's going to walk into the Prem not to sure myself. As for Bikey I would hope his name would be one of the first names on the team sheet for next season because if Cort plays before Bikey then there something sadly wrong in the dressing room, this could be a big mistake by Laws and BFC.

the biggest worry for me is the quality going out is not being replced with the standard of players being linked, eagles hasnt figured enough to miss if he was to go, blikey im not a massive fan, but he is the best defender we have

Great speculation, I spent yesterday with a Baggies season ticket holder and a PNE season ticket holder in Blackpool! Long story but the baggie was of the opinion that Bikey was not a target for WBA. He had the odd passionate story about close rivals who they call Midlands Dingles and suggested being a yo yo club doesn't satisfy the fans and they believe they would have stayed up last season if they had been amongst the contenders. As for discussions on Nugent, he did not want him back and was less than complimentary! All that tangerine and 2 out of the 3 of us were smiling! lol

we need to add to our squad not sell, if we do lose these two we need to sign 2 to replace them and 1 as cover
