Transfer talk: Kinnear

Transfer talk: Kinnear

Having identified Barry Ferguson as the number one transfer target for this particular window, Joe Kinnear has gone on record to stress his whole dissatisfaction at the way things pan out with the hot pursuit of transfers during January. JFK said:

'I have enquired about Ferguson, but we will wait and see what the outcome of that is. We are finding it difficult to bring certain players from clubs. Our bids haven't been accepted so far. The problem is two or three clubs are in for the same players. At the moment, there could be teams bidding more than us.

It would help if I could move some of the players here and get the finances in that way. But we have had no bids for them.

The January transfer window is hardly ideal. We have a lot of players missing at the moment who are out for six weeks or more. That means it's tough. If we pick up more injuries, we are in trouble for West Ham next week. We really need to get some bodies in. We need versatile players in who can play in a number of positions. We have got injuries all over the pitch. But we have to grin and bare it.'
