These two loanees set for long term deals

manuel-lanzini-west-ham-liverpool_3343611David Gold has dropped the heaviest hint yet that Mauel Lanzini is on his way to the club in a permanent summer deal.

And assuming he proves his fitness, Alex Song is set to join him.
Lanzini has been the revelation of the season so far and with an eight million euros fee agreed with his parent club Al Jaziera written in tablets of stone the deal looks certain to be done in the summer.
Gold – whilst not naming the players concerned – said in an ‘around midnight’ tweet that will be disappointed if two of the current loan signings did not arrive on the books permanently.
SongsVictor Moses is known to be on a straightforward one year deal at a cost of over £5 million and is all set for a Stamford Bridge return at the end of the campaign.
He was bought for this season with Michail Antonio seen very much as the man for next term and beyond whilst Carl Jenkinson – having signed a new long term deal at Arsenal –  is in his final loan season with us.
Arsenal want around £10 million for the player and ClaretandHugh was told by a top insider over the last couple of days: “We have eight months to find a right back and are tracking players.

Responding to a follower in his latest tweet Gold said: “I would be disappointed if at least two (loan signings) aren’t made permanent.”

Gold himself is a big admirer of Song’s and manager Slaven Bilic is desperate for the creative midfielder to make a full recovery and sign for a minimum of two years.

  1. Would be good to get Moses on a permanent deal but that’s being greedy and Antonio could yet prove better and Samulsun will turnout the real deal next season,
    Callum has a big career and so does Poyet with us,
    Oxford,Burke,Page and Henry could all make the grade to,
    It’s unbelievable and Hippo could not see any of this,
    Wonder how good the youngsters are at Sunderland and not getting a look in ?

  2. Well we were waiting for our youth to come good, we all knew FAT HEAD wouldn’t develop them 2 years and all half decent kids sold off, now is the time to step up. They actually played quite well into the little European adventure ..

  3. If youre in the youth set-ups at Sunderland you might be better off looking for another club.They wont get a look in while Hippohead is there for sure.Well maybe they might get a sniff if they sign up Mark Curtis as their agent 😀
