Well, it's that time of year where Sky Sports reporters freeze their backsides off standing outside a training ground with a load of truants.  Thought I'd pop by with a quick round up of what I understand is happening and a few thoughts…

Ravel Morrison – I thought this was agent talk hankeing for a better deal, but by all accounts this may actually happen.  Apparently a very talented but troubled young man, if Big Sam can guide him in the right direction, could be a great signing

Nicky Maynard – talks occuring, not that bothered by him to be honest, didn't impress me much when City played at ours, but if we get a cheap deal, could be okay

Vaz Te – was having a medical according to some, has scored quite a few for Barnsley this season and would be good for our promotion push, but good enough to step up a grade?  Not sure.

And finally a quick note on Herita Illunga who has left the club – what a real shame, I don't know it was mental or physical with him, but I've not seen such a decline on form since Sebastian Schemmel.  Shame.

Anyway, will try and pop on with any confirmed news, and if you have any goss, feel free to post in the comments…
