Moyes has three signing priorities

David Moyes could go back into the transfer window for a top central defender next summer despite his expected move for £1.2 million Silkeborg Frederik Alves Ibsen.

Stories are emerging this morning that the young Dane will not be bought as a first team squad player should he make the move and that the manager still intends to buy a top class back-up player as a matter of priority.

After hunting James Tarkowski and others in the last window he was left to eventually take Craig Dawson on loan from Watford for the season.

He has been delighted so far with the form of Fabian Balbuena  at the back along with the outstanding Angelo Ogbonna and has Issa Diop chomping at the bit for a return to the starting eleven after recovering from Covid 19.

However, he still feels that four quality central defenders are required at the club and along with a striker and back-up defensive midfielder.

  1. I think we defo need a striker as much as I want Antonio on the pitch all the time. He does tend to miss 25% of every season injured. I want Josh King as he is similar to Antonio. I think with Diop and Cresswel playing left sided C.B we can wait for the right person to become available. We do need some cover for Soucek and Rice but WTF why do we have a reserve team

  2. I like 3 at the back but I think we need a good defensive left back option so we change formation if needed. Maybe it’s Johnson but he will need games to help him progress.
