    I really hope we sign this lad, ease him into the squad in his first season with a medium term vision of him and Sanchez being our CB pairing for the next decade. Would turn this clusterfcuk transfer window into a positive one IMO.

    I think this is the one I'm most confident about happening. I think us and Ajax agreed everything weeks ago, we're just holding fire on it to not prejudice the Alder-Martial dance

    Have Ajax bought in anybody that could be seen as a replacement?

    Isn’t he more of a fullback than a center half?

    Always seen him as generic defensive utility.

    LB/LCB/DM - decent enough without being spectacular. Pretty sure in the Eredivisie he would be a perfectly good CB.

    I can remember hoping that we would sign him the season he went to Man Utd.

    I thought they signed someone from South America in May/June time as a replacement?

    Is he tall enough for CB?

    They play the ball on the ground much more in the Dutch league

    Im pretty sure he has played there plenty, and this is the Eredivisie we are talking, not the Championship

    With Emirates Marketing Project also said to be sniffing around, hopefully we have done what we did with Jan and Sanchez in the past and already wrapped everything up with the player.

    If not, should we be selling Toby!

    If the stories are true that United have dropped out of the Mina deal at £35 m, we should be all over this like a rash.

    Is he even any good? Or just another World Cup hyped player who will never meet expectations?

    No one knew him before the WC if we’re honest

    Don’t think he defended too badly but it’s a different game at club level
