Transfer window update, latest talk and rumours

DATE: 16.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Craig Shakespeare is still busy in the transfer window, with the latest departure being Tom Lawrence who is on the way out and set to join Derby County for a fee of 7 million

Lawrence who took part in the pre-season and played a great number of games, and also being fielded in the BM Gladbach affair, was probably hoping for a future at City, maybe, but too many competitors in his position made him a final departure.

Lawrence spent most of his time at the club out on loan, he had longer spells with Cardiff City and Ipswich Town especially during his three years at the club, joining in the summer of 2014 from Manchester United for a fee of 1 million.

The move makes sence since Lawrence has done well at Championship level, and to see a fee of 7 million makes this ok to accept. He will also be entitled to regular first team action, something he was far from at Leicester.

Clubs in the Premier League also chased Lawrence, according to the rumours, with Newcastle and Bournemouth both linked at one time during the summer.

We believe that the City squad is starting to be in the shape it should be, but it all comes down to how Shakespeare will compose his line-up and what system he will play. He is at the moment playing a regular 4-4-2, or a 4-4-1-1 if you like.

Clubs are trying out different systems and also changing formations durng the 90 minutes played. Shakespeare also "flirted" with double changes against Arsenal, but it never worked out as we would have liked, making the moves when 3-2 up and it all ended in two more goals conceded.

What we would like to see from Shakespeare and also previous managers in charge, is investing heavilly in the first 11, and not buying "bench warmers". Against Arsenal, the players on the bench had more transfer cost than those playing from start.

That is wrong priority and makes TCF wonder what type of logic that assess. So are the moves done in the transfer market this summer ok, and will the new signinngs play regular football.

So far TCF believe that the additions of Iheanacho and Maguire both looks like good invested money, but both of them most play regular football to show what they can bring to the table. Hopefully they will get all the games needed to do that.

Iborra is injured, but also looks like a good signing, the problem is that competition for places are hard inside the central midfield, and we have a great four allready in Drinkwater, Ndidi, King and James, and also Amartey, and don't forget Choudhury, who is a key figure in the U.23's.

Shakespeare needs to decide and he has not strengthened the first 11 enough, with players coming in, and not deciding who to ship out. To sell Mahrez and Drinkwater, currently under long term contracts, would be described as "crazy" if no one makes the bids of their value.

City are still monitoring the situation regarding Gylfi Sigurdsson who has not yet made any moves out, but if he is coming in, a number of City players most be shipped out, but would rather keep Danny Drinkwater, he is a better player for City in their system than Sigurdsson would be.

We will follow up during the last days of the Window, and it will not surprise me if more players leave. So far Zieler, Lawrence and Wasilewski are all shipped out, with Maguire, Iborra, Jakupovic and Iheanacho coming in.

Could see one or two more players being signed, but that will only happen if a few more are shipped out. Elder, Barnes and Kapustka are all out on loan, but still there could be more players leaving, either on loan or permanent.

Mendy and Musa could both be loan moves, with Bordeaux and Hull linked at the moment. Ulloa and Slimani, one of the two could also be on the way out. Slimani is linked with Newcastle, Ulloa could be a target for a number of French and Spanish clubs.
