Ed are you aware of any genuine interest in Adarabioyo from Man City? He's a very good young player but I wouldn't have him in the team ahead of any of our 3 main CB's, plus Ajer and O'Connell have still to return.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic are just one of a host of clubs who have shown interest in signing Tosin Adarabioyo but City are still clinging on hopeful that they can get him to sign a new deal. He wants to play regular football though and he's not going to get that at City.}

Do you reckon he would improve us? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews from City fans. I'd love to see us bring in an experienced, established CB to partner Jozo.

{Ed007's Note - The City coaches seem to rate him but I've not seen much of him at all and I definitely wouldn't fancy going into CL games with him in the team. I'd be hoping for someone a bit more experienced but Adarabioyo could be a great signing if he was willing to bide his time.
I think it would be best if Ajer spent next season out on loan as for me he needs to be playing every week and he's not quite at the level to do that for us. As for O'Connell, his contract is up this summer and by the look of things it doesn't seem likely there will be an offer of a new one.}

I watched Kerr and Wardrop on wednesday and they too looked very good and are the same age as Ajer and Adarabioyo, we aslo have MacCart and Kellacher to return in the summer. If we buy someone like St Juste that means we would have 7 players all 19-20 and you cannot play them all. Some would be disallusioned and leave it is a problem that needs careful handling as i think we should be produceing our own players where possible. They are cheaper and stay longer. Shame O'Connell did not work out liked the lad and his attitude hopes he does well whereever he goes.

He could be a real coup if he wasn't after first team games. I'd want somebody with proven pedigree who walks in the side if we go for another CB. Do we have the pulling power to sign him and loan him out?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed007's Note - I doubt it, there'll be plenty of clubs out there willing to offer the lad money and playing time.}

I never though Ajer had the touch to be a top mf. He can score and can do a lot well. After killie the next loan has to be a good one at cb. Projects don't always make it. He has done well to be fair there with game time. Imo we are still lacking in cb with jozo looking first fit pick if I'm being harsh on lustig one year on in rb needs sorted.
The viking. loved his heart but he hasn't ever been the same since he lost every high ball against the dead that game a while ago. Not sure he has the guile to adapt to a "wee" cb style on a bigger stage. I say wee because I've met him in the flesh and was surprised. Looks like a normal guy. His agression levels dropped after that ger game dramatically and he hasn't had a run since.

Is it not the centre back that played against us in the champions league? Can't remember his name but seemed decent also think he's quite highly thought off at city.
