Speculation The hysterical and annoying, but traditional, totally unfounded winter 2018/19 rumours thread.

It is bizarre how late everything happens. They’ve had all day and yesterday seemingly to go through the detail.
Most of that's been spent making a video to put on Twitter. A new signing is judged by the number of retweets. I reckon it will be Poirot themed. Maybe to a Plastic Bertrand soundtrack.
I can only think of two famous Belgians, and one of them is fictional.

Seems like a load of waffle to me.

The Guardian's live tracker has just said that King has gone to Derby on loan for the rest of the season - can't see any confirmation elsewhere

Shifting out king and Silva and bringing in 1 player isn't ideal. Although a quality player. We certainly don't need a smaller squad. Doesnt look like the club are going to be keeping puel beyond the end of the season.

King was never in the squad anyway so we haven't lost anyone in a way in moving him on.

Iborra hasn't been replaced as such but then at the start of the season, no one would have considered Choudhury a part of the first team squad so we haven't really needed to replace Iborra thanks to Choudhury's emergence.

Given the fact that Silva never played and was rarely on the bench either, we really gained another player in swapping him out for Youri.

Good move all round really and can surely only be seen as something positive.

Completely agree, all we've lost is fringe players who were costing the club wages that weren't going to be repaid on the pitch.

Yes, seems like a decent window for us all round really.

Lots of fringe players moved on, a couple of youngsters out to get a taste of first team football and us with another couple of usable options in the first team squad with Tielemans coming in and Barnes coming back.
