Rumour Mill-Lee Lets See

The Tractor Boys are today it is understood bracing themselves for a bid from Burnley for striker Alan Lee according to the Lancashire Telegraph

The club according to souces in Suffolk have made contact with Ipswich stating their interest and enquiring about fees.

The previous rumours that a 900,000 deal for the Ipswich striker had already been agreed were denied by Ipswich gaffer Jim Magilton and chairman David Sheepshanks. However, Jim Magilton did not rule out a move at the right price confirming he could be willing to let the Republic of Ireland international leave the club and possibly return to his former club.

Another case of watch this space as the transfer rumour clock ticks down!

The Lee rumour refuses to die, so it does!!
turfmanphil
I wish it would die!!!! If we are silly enough to spend 900,000 on Lee instead of the same on Riordan we need a serious reality check!!!
AccyClaret
Not sure if that 900k has any merits anyway, someone in the media seems to have got this wrong bigtime so far! I do agree though if we could tempt Celtic to part with Riordan for 900k-1million it would have seemed the better option
turfmanphil
It would, apparently there's a 500,000 offer in for Robson, with add-ons upto a million! If that's true I don't know whether it'll be enough to tempt them to part with someone who is quite hot property in the SPL! Riordan makes sense, FACT! Robson makes sense FACT! Lee makes no sense at all!!!!!
AccyClaret
Tend to agree, but I suppose if Riordan/Robson falls through, then Lee might be a better option than nowt?
turfmanphil
Yeah, something is better than nothing and i suppose we've seen what OC instills in players! He seems very good at making players play in an attractive way! So it might be a good thing, especially with all the second comings of late!!!!
AccyClaret
Whelan looks the easiest one to attract to the Turf out of the four names mentioned to date. Just hope there are some names that havent been leaked that are irons in the fire still.
turfmanphil
Well it'd be nice to have a shiny new player for saturday, one we've heard of or one we haven't. We do definatly need someone sooner rather than later to keep this promotion dream alive!
AccyClaret
Certainly do, made my feelings felt in the article below this one! I am not sure I could accept midtable mediocrity again, having had to sell or lose our key goalscorer yet again as we have at the same time every season for as long as I can remember! We have to show we mean business this time. It would be criminal not to IMO, when only 4 points off 6th! Bring somebody in & sharpish
turfmanphil
Pay over a million if needs be!! So the price is inflated, I don't want thousands of deflated Clarets come may!!
AccyClaret
Deflated by end Jan, I reckon if no signings and Gray gone!
turfmanphil
Hopefully we can still charge full steam ahead!!! Thats with or without new signings, I know more players would be good but maybe we can get some in on loan if we don't sign any! Looking like thats what we might have to do at this present moment!
AccyClaret
Its not impossible with a squad of 22-23, but we need a fair run on the injury/suspension side and the more players lose form or hit second-half season burnout, the less options we have to try and change things around
turfmanphil
Well hopefully Berisha's going to be back before the end of the season! Don't know about Duff, we really do need him back pronto! The squad is far to thin on the ground for a club with the ambitions we have! Ambitions unfortunatley cost money these days and for once we actually have some available funds! On the one hand i'm quite happy with OC being prudent on the fees side of things but am all too aware that not splashing out the "overinflated" prices that some clubs want, isn't going to secure us the players we need to progress!
AccyClaret
Surely we could get say two players in by end January, that would give us about 25 players if we ever needed to get Jay back and Berisha became available. I think Duff could make it too towards the very end of the season. We might just do it then plus we could have an option on loans coming in too
turfmanphil
Definatley need to be looking at bringing some players in on loan!!! Will ease the pressure off the squad massively
AccyClaret
Yet another day and nowt! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!
