Vertonghen comes to us having just won player f the year in the erde divisie, nothing is guaranteed, but he looks to be all singing all dancing, quality and hopefully the new lynch pin to our defence- I guess only time will tell- finger crossed.
I hope the speculation around Defoe's departure is just that, he's the only recognise striker we have (in the first team), I hope AVB's arrival will push Defoe to ensure he's first choice, Sturridge thrived under AVB at the Chavs and IMO Defoe isn't dissimilar to Defoe.
bassong looked decent in a relegated newcastle team.
u cant compare him to vert!
by the way, he will cheap in with a few goals too-
we got to keep defoe. he easily had the best scoring rate for us last season. even if u can keep him as back up or sub, he is well worth it.
5m would be a steal for reading.

SB while i get what you're saying, Bassong, as you've indicated, played well for the relegated Toon, so my point is, that didn't translate to success in our colours...so while Vert also comes to highly decorated and well-proven elsewhere, he's still got to do the business here for it to matter. Hopefully he gets a run out when they come to the States, the scout in me will be watching him carefully.
