Speaking following the surprise snub from Jonathan Woodgate over the weekend, a slightly deflated King Kev gave his views on the current state of play with our transfer targets. Not surprisingly he was playing it cool over the prospect of us managing to get someone in, especially with time at a premium:

“There’s an evens chance of us getting one player in this week. To get two in now we’d be swimming the Channel, I think. But you never know, we might surprise ourselves and the last week of the transfer window invariably sees clubs make decisions which make you think: ‘Wow, I never expected that.’

We’re only looking at Premier League players. We’re not looking to bring anyone in from abroad unless they were really world-class and established, and invariably they don’t come around in this transfer window. I wouldn’t rule anybody out. We’re looking at every team and I’m sure everybody else is looking at our players as well.’
