Fletcher: No deal…much doubt

Fletcher_2222093aNo deal has yet been done to bring Darren Fletcher to Upton Park.

Despite widespread rumours on forums that the player has agreed a three and a half year deal, ClaretandHugh has been told within the last few minutes: “There’s no deal.”

And we also learned that the player will need to face a very stern medical should the club decide to push things further down the road.

A top insider told us exclusively a few minutes ago: “There’s no deal on Fletcher at this stage. He hasn’t even had a medical yet and were we to go further with this, we would do a very strict┬ámedical.”

Whilst Sam Allardyce is desperately keen to push a deal through there remains much doubt about taking the player among important Boleyn ‘faces.’

One said: “It’s very much a Sam deal. Some of us aren’t so sure. He’s obviously out of favour at Old Trafford.

“There are doubts among several of us here and as I say he’ll face a very strong medical before we even consider taking it further.”

  1. We have 9 days left to sign the right player in Jan ,we should let this go and look for someone younger even if it’s a loan maybe look at some of the players that we came up against today who looked good on the ball had plenty of energy and would give there right arm for the chance and cost nothing compared with Fletcher.

  2. Here we go again.The manager at odds with most.I don’t know if Allardyce’s ego is stuck on “stupid” but he seems to be building a case for the board not to re-employ him in the summer.Now that is good news.

  3. If We are after an over 30, injury prone player, the most positive we could do is offer pay per play, but personally would rather snap up another Cresswell from the championship!
