Transfers News For The Inferior Teams

Hibs making some decent moves this window. Firstly that Harry Clarke who's on loan at County. He looks a cracking player. Now looks like they are also getting a winger from Bodo/Glimt who scored 17 goals whilst out on loan. 

Since David Gray, Hibs have tried to fill RB. Jason Naismith. Paul McGinn. Chris Cadden. Even Martin Boyle at RWB. 

But now Clarke, brought up as a CH, is a stand out signing? Might be worth a punt, but calm down. Usual scattergun signings at Lochend as they get ready to sell. Like Gordon Brown with Gold. Selling Porteous, Doig and Nisbet when they all look average.

Aye, £300k on a teenage Norwegian suggests they have high hopes for him.

The lad Clarke was getting good reviews.

Wouldn’t take much to be an upgrade on that prick Porteous though. 

Bodo have a pretty decent record for finding & producing youth players.

They are a club that has been poached probably more than any other in Norwegian football by Rosenberg etc.

Nadir Ciftci to St Johnstone reeks of desperation. He was good at Dundee Utd, but that was a long time back and he’s done nothing of note since. St. J have a real shot at relegation.

Aye he's been doing well by all accounts. Scored a few goals as well and still only 19

Hearts have 40% on Hickey

Surely net them at least 4m if that's the case. Very nice windfall. 1.5m seemed cheap at time because of his contract situation but if they net a total of 5.5m plus for him hes a decent bit of business.

Source of conversation of Kickback. Seems wisdom varies. Anywhere between 5% and 15% if believing those who say a percentage. 

But. Our CEO in company said we'd get a 6 figure sum. Which leads some to believe it's a flat fee. Or a percentage that'll lead to 6 figures. No more. 

Pessimistically I don't think we've much in place. So don't worry. Wouldn't be surprised to see Hickey go for £10m-£15m and us getting 500k at most. Anything more a pleasant surprise. 

All that said. Celtic had a 30% sell on fee which hammered us. You'd think we'd have played that forward as best we could. He's meant to be absolutely flying out there and seen as one of Serie A's best youngsters. Would expect another Italian club or two to show interest.

That's a bummer if Celtic make as much cash on their sell on fee from Hearts to Bologna as Hearts do when he goes for many times more in his next move.

Think we got £1.5m and 450k went to Celtic. The sell on fee is a gamble. Higher sell on then less cash up front. So you're banking on future success. When you might also need cash. Now. 

Managers also think jam tomorrow for the club when I'm likely not here. Gimme money now. So will pressure Boards for cash up front to help their immediate transfer coffers. 

That said, Hickey was promised to start for Bologna, in Italy's top flight. And was 18 when he moved. Always likely he'd get a move for big money if he showed promise. I'd have tried to insist on as high a sell on fee as possible, especially if it was at the expense of a fee where Celtic were taking 30%.

Fair play to Hibs trying to recruit early and give them the best chance to settle. Norwegian in particular looks like 1 to watch. Someone of that mould id of liked us to move for.

Nobody has talked about the American winger they signed on a pre contract for some reason, boy played with Nani for a couple of years on the other wing, mueller?, that’s him at hibs now, looks like he will be good as well

Yeah looks like he could be another decent purchase. Don’t hear much from hibs chairman but seems to be working away in background and giving the club funds to strengthen.

Having seen Mueller play on TV here in Canada, I can confirm that I was not overly impressed.

Can I ask what the relevance of the guy having played in the same team as Nani is?

Were you nae paying attention when we signed Scott Brown ?…Apparently a top player’s attributes will somehow be transmitted to his teammates.  How else can you explain why our squad have been transformed into battle-hardened serial winners ?

Hibs not messing about, getting business done early

Aye, Henderson signed up now; loan deal initially, to become permanent in the summer. Scandi signed yesterday. 
Sellic apparently after Boyle, £3m being quoted.

£3M is being reported what Hibs want.

I’m a bit surprised that the Henderson move was not wrapped up into it.

 

I wonder if Hibs are looking to offload giving their Winter arrivals

And Gogic too,

The lad they signed from ICT, Daniel McKay, whatever happened to him?

Plus they have Dylan Tait to come in too, summer signing from Raith, then instantly loaned back.

They're going to go with a young squad straight away by the looks of it.  Supplemented by a few existing older guys

Which is what we should have done rather than overloading with older players from the off.
