Fourstar now tweetingthat we're looking at South African striker Tokelo Rantie.

Although Fourstar seems less reliable of late and may just be using football rumours to add followers to his business account. :lol:

Less reliable than zero reliability is pretty unreliable.

Now saying we've agreed to Loan John Lundstram from Everton, so I guess we'll see. :yeahright:

It'd be a decent signing if true, he's an England U19 international, and from what I've seen in England youth games, a composed and creative midfielder with a decent tackle (fnar).

Another one that Bowyer probably knows from reserve games.

Everton fans seem to think he's a very decent prospect.

I'd imagine if it happens it will end our supposed interest in McLean, so belfast will be happy.

I would rather us bring an experienced player 25+ than another young player. My worry being Villa last season lacked senior players and struggled.

Also found this from a Doncaster Rover's forum. He was on loan with then earlier in the year and they really seem to rate him.

Plus this.
