One thought on “Transfer talk – a round up of today’s NUFC transfer gossip – 01/08/2017

  1. Perez seems the most obvious target for me. Ings has had too many injury problems. Keep hearing other names pop up but then nothing happens. We can’t even get rid of our dead wood. A month to go in the window. I think quite a bit more will happen or it’s another relegation dog fight.
