With speculation today linking Watford with West Bromwich Albion midfielder Jake Livermore as previously covered, there was also another snippet as it related to our potential interest in Rangers’ right back James Tavernier.

The Guardian’s transfer ticker made the suggestion that 20-year-old Sam Field could be set for a switch and head out of the club to Rangers on a loan deal as a makeweight in the Tavernier transfer.

If both deals come off, and there’s no guarantee it’s anything more than speculation at this stage – we’ll soon know as there’s just under 30 minutes left until the permanent transfer deadline slams shut at 5pm – plenty took to social media to vent their frustration that we were leaving ourselves incredibly light in the midfield department.

I would think Livermore is the more likely to go through if there’s any truth to the speculation, I can’t see Field going anywhere at this stage as it could be his year to break through properly and this season is as good as any to do that in the Championship.

I’m also not sure Rangers would be interested in taking on another midfielder this year given the options Steven Gerrard seems to have, and in terms of both coming off, I’m not seeing any real talk of a midfielder coming in being on the cards either.

  • It seems that we are done for the day.!!
    No more moves. No new names. No forward, No midfield, No defense, lets hope we can pick up some loans then. We have got to move some midfield deadwood and get some goal scoring ability or we’re doomed.

  • Doomed it seems are Chinese owners are taking us straight from 10thbin the prem to below 10th in the champ,be prepared for about her relegation midfield,a very dodgy defence,the slowest keeper j have seen.

    • Whether media guff or deals simply didn’t come off, it didn’t happen. Talk of Sam Field ported to Rekeem Harper as well, so I’m thinking media guff myself.
