Yes, I know the side needs strengthening in a number of areas. However, looking at some of our previous buys, I think that it is entirely sensible to get players on loan with the first option to buy.

Jimenez looks a good bet - but who's to say that in a year's time we'll all be glad that it was a loan deal.

Of course, we could be delighted with him and be waving the cheque book to secure the deal.

I think that we've done well with the established players still at the club, in spite of financial difficulties.

I had thought that Upson was the most likely to go. I think that the clear policy of snapping up young talent at a reasonable price will prove to be a very astute move.

I still reckon that the Italian connection may bring a couple more players before the transfer window closes.
