Here we go then, a one page collection of all credible rumours for our transfers today. Only going on here if there is something that substantiates the rumour.

I'll update the first post through the day as I'm off and i think this will be a busy one for palace this year. That didn't imply they will all come off of course. This isn't for bitching about the signings, it's to keep up to date on the latest news for all of them! The big picture innit.

Help me by posting/suggesting if I've missed of course. Like the old transfer latest thread but for one day only!

OFFICIAL IN: :lux::lux::lux:


OFFCIAL OUT: :grrr::eek::D

Hiram Boateng to Exeter city. Free

Ryan Inniss to Colchester on loan

Jonny Williams to Sunderland on loan

Keshi Anderson To Swindon on loan until January


RUMOURED IN:

Mama Sakho (Liverpool) - FEE AGREED!! 26m+ terms agreed with player. Having a medical! - extension apllied to sign before 1am

Oumar Niasse (Everton) - fee and terms agreed. Heading to London for a medical - extension apllied to sign before 1am

**OFF** Eliaquim Mangala (Man City) - 18m +5m add ons. Terms agreed with player, set for medical

**OFF** Cenk Tosun (Besiktas) - 12.5m reported as being agreed by various Turkish sources now saying terms agreed but still negotiations ongoing regarding how long the fee is paid over rather than total. Sky say this isn't a real deal.

**OFF** Frederik Ronnow - being reported we're in for a very late deal to sign him on loan from Brondby. Danish number 2 linked with forest this summer

RUMOURED OUT:

Mutch - Burton set to sign apparently. Available for loan to championship. Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol city also interested/linked

Lee - Bolton enquiry to take him back on loan

So less than 5 hours left and only 1 deal completed. Boeteng to Exeter. I think that if we complete signings, then players will leave. Ladapo or Anderson or both will leave if we sign a striker. I am not sure what happens if we sign Mangala or of Mutch, Lee and Williams leave as suddenly the squad is low on over 21s, which we could and maybe should replace with out of contract players. Joe Ledley?

That's already been covered and there is no problem at all with using a Turkish Lawyer, clinic, and electronic signatures. And assuming his and his agents phones work after 5:00pm, personal arrangements can also be agreed. He doesn't have to be here.

So what time do we think is the latest to hear a rumour tonight then? Could a player get to a medical without any rumours coming out about the deal by that point?

I doubt anyone not already agreed by now will have time to agree fees, terms and get a medical done.

That theory, if correct means really it's only the guys already on the list could realistically be signed

Hi everyone, im a Sporting fan and been coming here to follow the Zeegelaar subject.

Im gonna be honest with you, so you dont get your hopes up. Zeegelaar was possibly the most hated player we had last season(for me he was) and for 80% of his time in Portugal, he was absolute trash. 3M is an absolute highway robbery for us, its 3M more than i would pay for him. He is one of our worst players from the past 3/4 years.

Haven't worked it out but it looks like we have spent a lot of cash net in the end by our standards. Surprised we haven't been able to shift out any players for cash. I expected us to shift out someone. Without any incoming cash it makes for a steep window. Add in wages.

We just need to hope now when the dust settles that everyone can get together and make this work. Hopefully the new players, old players and Manager will get good support for Burnley.

Me too. Though I guess we have wanted to hang onto players who are of sufficient quality to join another Premier league club, and the ones we want to offload are probably on salaries that Championship clubs cannot come anywhere close to matching. So loaning out or paying up the contracts are the only options left.

To me, I'd rather take a risk on CB staying fit and spend on a proper striker next summer. Hopefully Wickham will be back in Jan. The good news is that we still have Cabaye and Townsend. Now let's start stringing together some performances with our best players. There's no point moaning about lack of new additions when we are not currently using our existing squad properly. Leaving out of the XI our best midfielder? Dropping our England winger for the first home game? That's just madness. And there's no point signing dead wood dross that just sucks the lifeblood out of our club like Jordon Mutch. (That said I wouldn't be against Diabate if feasible.)

Good work all round. We've got a quality new addition. No excuses for FdB. Squad is stronger than last season and we beat the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and spanked Arsenal's bottom with a weaker squad. COYP.

I think we have taken a huge, huge risk.

We waited all summer on the Sakho deal, who I'm sure we are all delighted to welcome back, but at what cost? We have left a gaping whole in our attacking options as well as leaving ourselves with very weak goalkeeping options. And add to that the fact Sakho himself is still receiving treatment for a serious injury.

I think we placed a lot in to the hands of luck to be honest.

We have 1 fit first-team striker for 4 months (minimum, even if we signed someone else on 1st Jan 2018). One Benteke injury could see our Premier League staus done for, just like that, in one challenge or twist. We needed Niasse, absolutely needed him or another forward. It is an inexcusable risk to take, let's all hope, pray, whatever that it doesn't hurt us as much as it could do.

We have signed 4 players and 3 of them are centre backs (admittedly if we revert to a back 4, TFM may operate as a full-back) and have neglected other areas of the squad.

Because Parish appears more focussed on trying to appease a large vocal section of our fan base who for some reason think that an injured Sakho is worth spending the majority of our budget on.

Terrible window that has sent us well on the way towards relegation.

The club has failed to back de Boer and clearly don't want him to succeed. He'll be gone in days.

To not sign a keeper is one thing - we have only two keepers after all. But to not sign a striker is beyond the pale. It's mind blowing. We must be the only club in premier league history to only have one striker in the squad.

I'm so pissed off but this window has been a total joke from start to finish. We've just taken a massive gamble on our premier league future.

I don't know a lot of supporters will think when they wake up and hear Niasse has not signed. I do my reaction was WTF...... I was hoping we sneaked a keeper over the line not lost the back up striker who I had convinced myself was going to be a star (even if his record looked more like a back up striker for Benteke) . I think any investment now needs to be on a miracle worker to deal with the injuries, if we can get Wilf and Conner back it will help.
Can everybody in Annerley look out for the non contract forward coming over the Crystal Palace hill on a white charger and make sure as he rides down the hill he does not fall off........ Hmmmm send for AJ , errrr Clinton , whats Ameobi doing....

01-09-2017, 06:05 AM
Just seen Eddie's good point - we've only signed four players this window and three are ******* centre backs! You couldn't make it up.

So, we have 8 players who can play centre back - 9 if you add Luka. Yet we have two keepers and one striker. Truly incompetent.

I have just done that and have woken up completely stunned. I went to bed thinking Sakho and Niasse would be confirmed this morning. We are ****ed if Benteke gets injured. He has to play 90 mins every game until Jan as we haven't got a striker to bring on as a substitute. Utter shambles!

Good start from Freedman.

One bloke that we've been tracking for months.

FDB walks and then (no suprise) SP goes down the predictable route of appointing Freedman as manager.

This is what I think too. I would be surprised if fdb is here when we go to Burnley. I really hope I am wrong. Reason I say this is because sakho is not his signing and signings he wanted have not come into the club.

What. A. Shambles.

At least we've signed a 26M injury prone central defender to gloss over the paper thin squad and appease the masses. [emoji19]

Shambles from the club I'm afraid. There should've been 15 or so striker targets and at least one would come in...I can't believe that many would fall through, which suggests we had far fewer possible signings identified. What have they been doing for the last few months...talking to sakho and no one else?!. I'm just mystified I really am

Get ready for Steve parish to go on the radio explaining the problems that palace had and how they nearly got a world class keeper and two super strikers over the line but the other clubs were suddenly difficult and then everyone will sigh feel for him as he tried his best meanwhile watch palace go down

So glad I ignored the last 5 hours of the transfer window. Stopped the frustration levels going through the roof.

If we are not deep in the bottom three by Jan - I expect we will be spending stupidly again to try and get ourselves out of a hole.

We better start praying to every single deity (to cover our bases) for Benteke not to be injured.

The club spent 26m on one player. Not too shabby. The market has changed so much that 20m is the normal now for players under contract. Many teams have spent less this time around.

It's not about how much we spent, it's the fact we have 1 striker and a GK that no-one trusts. We have to pray that the first XI players stay fit and given our injury record over the last couple of years, that is not going to happen.

If benteke gets injured we will struggle to score and given that we have been in the PL for 4yrs that situation is a joke.

Just seen Eddie's good point - we've only signed four players this window and three are ******* centre backs! You couldn't make it up.

So, we have 8 players who can play centre back - 9 if you add Luka. Yet we have two keepers and one striker. Truly incompetent.

Kelly
Dann
Tomkins
Delaney
Tfm
Riedewald
Sakho


We have ward, Kelly and Damo who should only play in extreme extreme emergency or if we feel like throwing the match. That's five useful Cbs if you include Dann four if you don't and I'm 50 50 on him right now.

You're right in that ward, damo and Kelly should have been binned off but SP went and extended Kelly and Damo. At least Ward can still be sold in January or released at the end of the season if he can't adapt or correct two seasons of being pants.

Whatever you say, it's bonkers to have so many CBs and 1 striker. We should have sold a couple of CBs or not signed TMF or Riedewald. We didn't need both and that money would have been better spent in other areas.

So Tim Coe is the Head Scout, who manages the signing process? Is it still Phil 'Two Admins' Alexander?

Whoever it is, it needs changing up.

Apparently, we were locked in talks on deadline day with Everton for a potential swap deal involving Van Annholt and James McCarthy.
If true, suggests that Schlupp and Souare would have regarded as the left back/wing back options going forward. Whether we needed James McCarthy to increase our midfield options is debatable. Perhaps we had another potential outgoing if that had happened ?

If that is true then I really can't see McCarthy being a FDB signing either. I absolutely get the idea of swapping PVA but wouldn't we have swapped him for Niasse or TBH anyone who's nose doesn't bleed past the halfway line?

I have nothing against McCarthy BTW.

The other thing that seems to be a habit is that once we have identified a target, we seem to keep going back to them again and again until we get them but over years. Just wonder how likely it is that they are still the best choice. Wonder if we will put in a bid for Shearer or Le Tissier?

Still can't quite believe this is true is it?

Source is the Sunday People (today).
I agree, does feel most of the transfer targets on thursday (Sakho, Niasse, McCarthy) were repeat returns for previously identified players. And, therefore, not De Boer 'types'.

Yeah absolutely. No way was in FDB in control of transfers, it's all out old shopping list. This is what convinces me that FDB will be leaving in the next week.

Has FdB ever been in charge of transfers in previous positions? Managers making those decisions is more of a British thing.

If true then Van Aanholt must be wondering what future holds for him . Also McCarthy always seems to pick up niggles - don't we ever learn .

Possibly not, Martin, as it is questionable whether he had ever seen him play - at least not sufficiently to draw a conclusion.

But I agree with you (and disagree with Stellavista) about Fosu-Mensah. I think he had decided the type of ball playing defender he wanted, and F-M would certainly be a player he knew, so I think it's likely he directed that signing

I have real doubts about Riedewald after his debut. Only 1 match but A. he was very, very poor defensively and B. If we do revert to a back 4, he won't be playing as we have just spent another 26(?)m on a left sided centre back.

Spending the vast majority of our budget on just two permanent signings (who are both left footed centre backs) doesn't seem like the smartest thing - although that isn't all on FDB but does suggest a lack of communication between him and the board, when other areas of the pitch had very pressing need.

Reidewald can play defensive midfield. Cover or alongside Luca. Ideal if Dougie takes over !

I would be really surprised if that was true (that he hadn't ever seen him) but who knows. I don't believe we signed him without him agreeing is really what I meant. I am less confident about any attempt to get McCarthy.
