Is Winston Reid The Last Piece Of The Jigsaw?
So is New Zealand defender Winston Reid the last piece in Avram's jigsaw, or does his arrival point to the departure of one of Da Costa, Gabbidon, Upson or Tomkins? With the signing of Ben Haim, we are already top heavy with centre backs so either Avram plans to use the Kiwi in his secondary position of right back, or one of our centre halfs is heading for the exit.
Personally, I would be very disappointed to see Da Costa go because I think the boy has all the raw materials to be a very good centre half indeed. If we sell him now, I fear we may live to regret it.
Reid is apparently costing us £4m. That is probably staggered, like the Barerra deal, but I now make that £9m we have spent (without signing on fees) without the Davids recouping any money. Now, who could we sell to net that money back? Scott Parker anybody?
So, is that it or can we expect to see even more new arrivals? One thing's for sure, looking at that pic, the arrival of Reid will be popular over on WHTID!
