One thought on “Transfer round up – all of today’s NUFC transfer news – 23/05/2017

  1. Olly: Have you taken a class at the “Ed Harrison Cut and Paste School of Journalism”?

    Andre Gray only has a year left on his contract so that sounds like a NUFC special.

    If we get Josh King I hope he is not a one season wonder. A lot of other clubs are sniffing about but I doubt he would be attractive to the top 6 except as backup. I said yesterday that we must be one of the most attractive of the best of the rest, so I think we have a shot.

    Of the clubs from 8 on down, no manager is safe and all could be relegated. That includes West Ham as they seem to be doing everything to shoot themselves in the foot. We could see 3 managers sacked soon and a total of probably 6 by Christmas.
