Fingers-crossed, the first of a number of new arrivals. The fact that fans of Bournemouth, who pissed our division when they were here, seem gutted about his seemingly-imminent departure suggests that he could be an excellent signing.

The team needs leaders and hopefully he'll fit the bill.

Excellent news if true, glad to see a management structure capable of identifying and (fingers crossed) acquiring targets.

Hopefully his signing will prove to be a Boon.

The scoop was broken by me, I've heard Messi and Ronaldo next, his value has dropped after yesterday so probably 30m plus add ons

Whenever I hear his name I think of the Elephant Man. The combination of Elephant and Merrick does it I think.

Hope he's as good as the last centre half we got from Bournemouth

Pity we can't get Callum Wilson from Bournemouth as well.

Funny that as it makes me think of Michael Elphick and for that reason this signing would be a Boon.
