We’ve only gone and signed someone!

The gossip-mills have been circulating for a while, and indeed, continue to suggest that deals have already been done – but today Forest have confirmed that David McGoldrick has sealed his move to us from Southampton for a seven-figure fee.  McGoldrick is a Nottingham-born lad and spent time over the river with the Magpies before ending up down south (with loan spells at Bournemouth and Port Vale before breaking into the Saints team).

I expect a stream of announcements this week, with probably Anderson next as it seems to be common knowledge we’ve agreed terms and a £750k fee with Liverpool for the pacy winger.  Indeed, it does make £1m (or more) for McGoldrick seem a bit pricey, although he’s been a fairly long-term target for us, so it’s good news on that front to have landed him.

So some great news, and a bit more reason to start scanning the news feeds with a little bit more optimism, perhaps!
