Moussi set to sign..

It’s been probably the worst kept secret of the weekend, after Guy Moussi let slip he was signing for the Reds.  He joins from Angers who are currently in the second tier of the French league, having just been promoted – sound familiar?  He’s 23 years old, and is a defensive midfielder; so presumably a replacement for Sammy Clingan (who I don’t think is a holding midfielder anyway, despite him being frequently deployed there).  £300k is the price being suggested for him, so welcome on board, Guy!

He’s agreed personal terms and is undergoing a medical, and according to the Evening Post, could be the first of several incoming players this week.  Andy Cole has been touted as a surprising addition to the squad, having been released by Sunderland after a not-particularly-involved spell with the Mackems. 

The remaining rumours centre around Stephen Clements from Leicester, who is said to be keen to leave the relegated Foxes.  Although judging by past transfer windows, there’s bound to be a few curve balls in the mix to give us a surprise or two.  Either way, it’s nice to see players arriving, albeit in the case of Moussi one I have no idea about.  Hearing Doughty speak about further signings and trying to build a team for us to be proud of, it’s hard not to get more than a little bit excited about the forthcoming season!
