Having spent more or less a week bigging it up in Barca, it looks like Kenny Shepherd might finally have got his man. According to newspaper updates yesterday, Edmilson looks set to sign in January after his knee injury has fully recovered. Whether this has been inked or is another one of those famous gentleman`s agreements is yet to be seen though.
Meanwhile all seems to have gone cold on the Eidur Gudjohnsen front, with nothing mentioned in the press. However it looks like Man Utd might be out of the running now, with a massive swoop for Carlos Tevez supposed to be coming off in the next 48 hours.
