Do Genk have financial issues perhaps?

Anyone know why he's half the price of Wesley despite a better goal record?  Age or out of contract soon?

Buy out clause.

Buy out clause.

If that's all there was to it, I'd find it even stranger that we didn't just buy him in the summer. We clearly had scouts in Belgium and he scored a lot more than Wesley last season.

I am totally underwhelmed by this signing if it goes through its gotta be said.

Have we not learnt our lesson and got ourselves into enough trouble already buying players from the Belgium league?

Next transfer window will be  out of EU so even more will need work permits.

I think we've got ourselves in trouble by only having one forwars we can rely on. When he lost form and confidence, we were unable to rotate. Since Burnley, we've made it extra hard for ourselves.

I am surprised nobody has mentioned that Hugh Genot.

With the possible exception of Anderlecht I doubt any Belgian club can turn down the sort of money Premier league clubs pay for players.

His highlights reel seems to be loads of misses.  Looks slightly more dynamic than Wesley, but just as good at missing.

Ffs give him a chance!

On the assumption he signs, are we storing up problems for when AFCON comes round again?

They were all misses though.  The goals started at 2 mins.

The statement that Smith wants two is a clear admission we left ourselves short. I would imagine come the summer we will look to make the loanee permanent if he works out, so we would have 3 forwards at the club.

Smith saying one possible in 24 hours.

"Just as good at missing" i just don't think there's any need mate.

If he was at one end of a dark alley and Christian Benteke was at the other, which way would you run?

 I love scary centre forwards.

Rodgers happy for Silmani to go on loan in the Premier League, so that could be the deal over the next 48 hours, with Samatta the one at the end of January.
