Reports emanating from the inner sanctum of SJP suggest that the signing of David Rozenhal from Paris Saint Germain is close at hand. With Big Sam desperate to get some bodies in to rebuild his pretty thin defence, following the release of Onyewu, Shambles and Moorecelino, it looks like the Czech stopper will be getting his medical and putting pen-to-paper when the Stock Exchange opens again tomorrow. He`s apparently agreed terms and it`s all set to go.

Following Ben Haim`s flit to the Bridge it`s positive news for the gaffer as he finds a partner for Steven Taylor at centre back. At 6`3″ Rozenhal definitely fits Sam`s requirements of adding height to the team and a set piece threat. Next up – replacements for Carr and Babayaro. Expect some tall players coming in to replace that pair of midgets and maybe another couple of utility centre halves come full backs.
