Lambert continuing what he was doing here buying young players from the lower leagues. Would have loved to see Joe Bennett at Norwich, and probably would have if the manager didn't change. I seem to recall reading you're after that Burnley striker, could be a decent signing.
Our strongest rumour is Craig Mackail-Smith. We do need another striker but I'm not sure what I'd think if we splashed big money on an unproven (at prem level) 28 year old. I actually thought we were going to try and get Jordan Rhodes using the James Vaughan loan as incentive but he went to Blackburn, 8 million really is out of our league.
It's obviously too early to say as I haven't seen a lot of them play but I think I have faith in Hughton's eye for transfers. Steven Whittaker, Sébastien Bassong, Michael Turner, Robert Snodgrass, Javier Garrido, Jacob Butterfield, Alexander Tettey and that back up keeper all seem like solid signings.
Also on the topic of transfers, Berba to Fulham. Who'd of thought that.
