Not too mad on signing more ageing players but not much risk if it's a loan signing, and I'm biased in favour of Scottish players, so I'd be happy with that deal.

And having looked him up, he's 29 so younger than I thought!

Snodgrass is a very good player at this level and still good enough for the Premier League.

To be fair, he was a 10m signing 7 months ago. He may not have hit the heights at West Ham, but I wouldn't say that he's a 'has been'. A good signing for a club in our position.

We don't have too many "youngsters" in midfield. Adding a bit of quality and creativity and another goal threat seems like a good move to me.

Where would he play?

A tough road back to the first team for Grealish when he is fit again.

Whelan
Jedinak
Lansbury
Hourihane

Adomah
Elmohamady

Snodgrass is an excellent player and would certainly improve us.  But he prefers to play on the right (despite being left footed) and we have just signed Elmo for that.

I really like him but just not sure this is how we should use our limited budget.

If we continue with the 4-1-4-1 formation (or even if we go to a 4-4-2) he will play on the left side of midfield.  He is like Ashley Young in that he is a right footed player who plays predominantly on the left.  Decent signing in my opinion.

He's as left footed as is humanly possible and prefers to play on the right.
