Bilic: ‘Zaza likely to sign today’

Simone Zaza looks set to sign for the Irons later today, Slaven Bilic has confirmed.

The manager said personal terms have been agreed with the Italian as well as a deal with Juventus, which is reported to be a club record of £24 million although it could be preceded by a loan period.

Bilic said: “The Zaza situation looks very likely to happen and should happen today, and as far as I know the deal is agreed between the clubs.

“The personal terms are also agreed and he is due in London today, so we hope it will be done.”

Bilic added: “It’s very positive and it’s a boost. We’ve been trying for a long time now to get a top-quality striker and he was always mentioned.”

  1. Please,pleaee,please be a loan first not 25m outright.I really don’t want to have to wear the pampers 🙂

    • 25m on the nose and Rads in a pair of pampers? Come on board do the right thing pay the full sum and stick a picture up on the big screen of good old Radpants 🙂

  2. I really hope it is £25 million straight with no loan.No backing out fella.You said it,you have to stick to your word hehe

  3. Just imagine if it don’t ?
    A pseunami of nappies will be hurtling towards northern France from the south coast sewers ? Lol.
    If only they were invented in 1066 ?
    First France , then the world ?
    I really feel sorry for you rads !! Not? Hahaha.where will you be , I can’t miss it , must bring the cameras ? Lol. ( smiliey ).

  4. I’ll even postpone an important business trip to see that. The word is my friend, straight out payment ;)!!!

  5. OK smart ar*es,calm it,he will come on loan first,i will be safe lol.There is not a snowball in hells chance he will sign for 25m this window.Im still off to the pub to practice my singing though ..what was it..Stand up if you’ve got wet pants,stand up if you’ve got wet pants,stand up if youve got wet pants,stand up if youve got wet pants lol

  6. What are we at !! We have too many players and no games. I just can’t work out why we are not trusting Oxford and Fletcher. Lets be brave for a change and forget this. Fletcher has more about him than this guy. I really worry for us this season.

    • Chill Johnham ? Take a Valium ? I don’t fancy him either but it ain’t a bad signing is it ? If it happens of course ? Better him than Biggins ? Lol.

  7. We need him more than he needs us, so he’s in the drivers seat.
    First choice is an easy one to make as we only have Fletcher left and we will need to have two available
