Never have ‘those three words’ been welcomer for me!
What three words you ask?
These all-important three words, the ones that you can tire of hearing although words that we have not been hearing nearly enough recently…
‘Sky sports understands’ of course, what else would I have meant!
Movement of players in, Christian Dailly aside, has been slow for the best part of a month, even the ‘rumours’ had been drier than the Sahara…
Well a ‘link’ has come in!
Danny Haynes, via sky sports and what they ‘understand’, is that link with them saying: ‘A host of clubs are battling to land Barnsley striker Danny Haynes.
‘The 23-year-old only moved to South Yorkshire in January when he arrived from Bristol City. But it already looks as if he could be leaving Oakwell less than 12 months into his career with the Tykes.
‘Skysports.com understands a number of Championship clubs are keeping close tabs on him.
It is believed Portsmouth, Burnley, Leicester and Hull City are all monitoring the situation.’
Whilst the ‘understands’, ‘believes’ or ‘expects’ thoughts from sky sports, The News, BBC etc. can wear a little thin at times not signing any players or having any ‘links’ to players or any ‘rumours’ of interest at all make the lack of movement all the more frustrating really.
Will we actually sign Haynes, are we even in for Haynes?
I cannot answer that, although at this point in time I would welcome almost any striker and ‘if’ the types of club ‘said’ to be after him really are after him then we could do worse it seems…
