Vladimir Coufal’s future seems to still be very much up in the air as the January transfer window opens today.
The Czech defender – along it has to be said with Tomas Soucek – has been nothing like the player we saw in his first season.
And he made it clear during the international break that he was unhappy with the minutes he has been getting this season.
And he also made it clear that it would need – and was – being sorted out and is clearly one to keep an eye on in a window which manager David Moyes has described as likely to be quiet.
With the injuries we are suffering at the moment there is no big desire to let anybody leave but Coufal has just six months left on his current deal although a two year option is attached.
With only Kehrer and Johnson available beyond Coufal in the right back position it would seem that Moyes would need another option should the Czech be allowed to move on.
