These transfer windows can produce some exciting last minutes deals.
Since my last offering Celtic have acquired the services of Costa Rican full-back Cristian Gamboa.
It has been reported that Jozo Šimunović might be heading out the door at Lennoxtown to Torino.
Of course, there will be a rigorous medical in Italy before any deal can go through for the Croatian defender.
I am led to believe that they can also manage those examinations in the country of Hippocrates.
I’m told that Joleon Patrick Lescott Esq “sailed through his medical in Greece.”
My information is that young master Waghorn has been informed by the hierarchy within the Holding Company Vehicle that he can ply his trade elsewhere.
I understand that the haggling started with Sevco asking for around £2m and Bristol starting at £800k.
An agreed fee of £1.2m is likely to get the prolific penalty taker heading south.
Should this come to pass then that will cover the fee that the Engine Room Subsidiary had to shell out for Joe Garner.
Of course, no manager wants to lose his best players.
Therefore I’m sure that the Admirable Warburton is delighted that young James Tavernier wants to stay put.
One cannot be certain, but perhaps the ex-City trader played some part in convincing the young full-back to remain at Sevco.
Now I can only imagine how happy this must make the chaps in the Blue Room.
The more I learn about this transfer business, the more complicated it appears to be.
Take, for example, the case of Philippe Senderos.
I am told that his agent believed that he had a verbal agreement with several leading chaps within the Holding Company Vehicle.
However, when the deliberations of this conclave were transmitted into the written form, some things didn’t appear to add up.
For example, year one was 52 weeks, but year two was only 48 weeks.
Look, I’m sure it will all be sorted out.
The lure of the four-year-old institution will just be too much to resist.
These are exciting times for The People, and I’m sure that they will welcome the injection of pace that Monsieur Senderos will bring to the Sevco back line.
In the meantime, I’m told that clubs like 1860 Munich and two Italian clubs are looking on at the dizzying pace of events and trying to keep up.
No doubt Joseph Anthony Barton and Niko Kranjčar must be pinching themselves at their good fortune to have secured employment at such a well-run football club.
Money well spent if you ask me.
Very shrewd business.
All part of the Grand Plan of course.
