Young, RB/defensive midfield, promoted last season (having played 31 games for Boston, suggests he can defend). Much to like, if rumours true.

If County are signing a RB that could mean either a) Mcloughlin could be sold, b) there could be a change in system and McLoughlin could be playing as a winger next season, c) Rowe is signed as cover/competition for McLoughlin, with a plan for him to be transitioned to the higher level of football.

Or d) none of the above... Very Happy

The only information I can find on him is that he's with Elite Management, but last time I looked the County squad were evenly spread across many Football Agencies, so whomever represents him does not pose as large a concern as it did when Flynn was in charge.

I don't have a problem with an 18 year old back-up GK, other than the slight concern about how much competition Townsend then faces for his position (and whether some complacency enters into his game as a consequence). Should there be any medium to long term injury a replacement GK can be signed outside any window.

And I guess if he's decided to move on, which his post on X suggests, it seems to show he's keen to progress in football, so will be hunfry to progress. And HJ must still have people in the Swansea set-up that can give him the run-down on his abilities and possible trajectory...

Can I just say how great it is to have some rumours to speculate on. It's better than trawling the released lists from EFL sides and trying to find players that could be worth a punt.

The two names above are possibly the areas County are looking at - young, with promise, but inexperienced at this level. And if they can prove competence may earn some money on selling on...
