Irons striker talks denied


image-63Reports that the Irons are set to sign 19-year-old KAS Eupen striker Henry Onyekuru are premature. reported yesterday (Wed) that a transfer fee had been agreed at around £7 million and that only personal terms were left to be agreed.

The scorer of 23 goals this season has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Crystal Palace, West Brom, Everton and Bournemouth all sounding out his representatives.

The report claimed that only personal terms were left to be agreed but our insiders claim the deal is someway to be done if at all.

We were told: “The report is not true. We are not sure the player can make the jump to the Premier League.”

    I know it has been said by many others before but it is totally pointless getitng excited or disillusioned by possible transfer targets.The press go in to overdrive during the summer and as Hammer64 mentions most of it is fake news.
