Checking In

It is deadline day, so I am swimming in phone calls, text, emails, telegrams and smoke signals. You can also follow my day here, but let me go ahead and catch you up what I can confirm so far:
  • At least two clubs have seen offers for Geoff Cameron rejected by Stoke, one of those being from Sunderland. I honestly have no clue who the other one was from. Yet.
  • Zulte-Waregem have had a bid for Sacha Kljestan knocked back, and apparently Anderlecht have decided they want to keep him.
Perhaps more later. I should I say "hopefully" more... ?

Zulte-Waregem? Are you just making clubs up to see if we're paying attention?

Greg Seltzer said...

Nope. They finished fourth last season, even led for a time down the stretch of the regular season.

West Ham sites reporting that they were the second Cameron bid...

Freegle said...

incidentally, they (west ham) are also thought to have made a loan bid for a CB from Lazio... potentially opening up a place for Cameron in Rome.

Greg, what is the deal with Shea and Agudelo? Do they just have the worst American agent ever?

How can we be to deadline day and Spencer Wadsworth STILL hasn't gotten them a new club? These two can't possibly be as bad as their agent makes it appear.

Quite an embarrassing ordeal.

Greg Seltzer said...

Wish I had more to tell you about their scenes. All along, I'm only getting stray bits and pieces of the puzzle.

Brad said...

Does Agudelo have to sign somewhere today, even though he's not currently with a club?? What about Onyewu? He disappeared quickly after turning down extension at Sheffield.

Matt said...

Can you shed any light on why Lletget isn't trying to at least leave West Ham on loan?

Greg Seltzer said...

As for Onyewu, I honestly have no clue what he may have cooking.

As for Lletget, the better question is why has he not been given a chance in the first team?

Matt said...

Well Greg, yes, the better question for West Ham is why he doesn't get a shot. But my questions for Lletget and his agent would be 'why don't you get the heck our of Dodge?'

Greg Seltzer said...

There has been interest before. Maybe he just wants to break through there that badly.

A 15 year old center back took Lletget's squad number this summer.

He's one of a number of younger players who only ever played for West Ham once in a 5-0 cup defeat against a lower league side. I'd hazard a guess that he hasn't been given another chance in the first team because he isn't seen as being good enough.

Ravel Morrison is a few months younger and Diego Poyet is three years younger, both are obviously way ahead of him in the midfield pecking order. If there is any interest he would be wise to jump on it, being an overage player in the U21 Premier League is not a good look.

Jon said...

I cannot believe Shea couldn't find a new club. Now a 3 month Championship loan is his only option? That's terrible.

This guys career is about to waste away and clearly when combined with Agudelo not finding a club, their agent Spencer Wadsworth has something to do with this.

How does Shea go from having interest in Holland, Germany and England to still being stuck at Stoke? Extremely worrying.

I am saying it now, both Agudelo and Shea end up at Orlando City in some capacity other than just a "training" stint.
