More injury woes for us with Marc Wilson out for three months, meaning we are running short of centre backs with Shawcross (due back in March) and the versatile Cameron both injured. Cameron could be back for the weekend though. Possibly a late loan bid for a centre back before deadline day tomorrow? Tottenham’s Federico Fazio possibly? That’s what the Sentinel think, although he could be on the way back to Spain.
As deadline day draws near we are of course being linked with lots of players, one of which is West Brom’s outcast Saido Berahino. Newcastle have had a bid of £21m rejected already and Sky say we are interested possibly in advanced talks, not so says the Sentinel.
Odemwingie could be on his way to a loan move with Marseille, although he was linked with Sunderland earlier in the week.
