My birdies are a-singin'. I'm told by a very solid second-hand that Paulo Di Canio is crazy intent on landing Mister Altidore. Apparently, over at Sunderland, they are quite confident of getting a deal done.
Meanwhile, it also seems Lazio may have now dropped away for some reason - still checking around on that one, so don't consider it 100% yet.
UPDATE: Ah, yes. I forgot. Magically, the UK reports have suddenly upped their guess at his transfer value from £5 million to £7 million (which is just past €8 million). Gosh... I wonder how they came to make that exact change.
