Seems like the Barnsley skipper is also set for a medical.

Who he?

Defender, midfielder or forward? Left, right, centre?

Midfield.

That'll do for me!

Next question, what type? (Other than "good"). Defensive, attacking, bit of both?

Just the daily mail rumour so far, hold fire I guess.

In Lansbury and Hourihane we will have two midfielders who run a lot and like to get into the box and score goals. That sounds really quite foreign as a concept.

Playmaker with an eye for goal. Can take a set piece as well.

Forgive me if I curb my enthusiasm. We could train Messi at Bodymoor Heath for one week and turn him into Warren Aspinall.

I'm getting giddy with excitement at the prospect of bodies in the box! But what are these goals that you speak of?

Absolute cracking player!  Steal at 1 million !
Really good middle man plays well with aggression and offensive play.
Pros gets goals . Great footballing age . Creative.  Captain and versatile in middle.
Negative - aggression leads to yellow cards !

Really hope he signs and we 'll enjoy his play.
Think Fabian Delph/ Charlie Adam hybrid

Plays deep midfield -closer to defensive midfield, usually. But has more assists and goals than most attacking midfielders in this league.

Left footed, but I am sure I have seen him cutting in from the right to score some of his goals for Barnsley this season. Would be happier with this deal than the Lansbury one. But happy with both. Gardwood RIP.
