Please, please, please don’t let this be true. I don’t like this for a few reasons.
- I am against signing older players from the UK. I just don’t think there is value when you look at talent compared to cost/wage. Sure there are some exceptions (Terry Cooke), but not too many.
- Does this mean that Quavas Kirk is a verified bust? What has happened to him? Where is he? If Huckerby arrives, does that mean Kirk is doomed here?
- DC doesn’t have a great history signing or even looking at players from the UK, starting with Dalglish, Guppy, Gazza, Kasal, et al. And no, John Harkes doesn’t count.
