James Husband: Has caught the eye at Doncaster

The 20-year-old has spent the last two seasons proving himself at Football League level, in the second and third tiers.

He is now being tipped to take the step up into the Premier League, with Hull boss Steve Bruce eager to buy into his potential.

Doncaster are aware of the mounting interest and boss Paul Dickov has admitted that discussions over improved terms at the Keepmoat Stadium will be shelved if Husband expresses a desire to move on.

He told The Star: “We need to sit down and have conversations with James and his advisers to find out whether he wants to stay.

“It’s pointless us putting a new deal to him if he has his heart set on leaving.

“If he wants to stay, no doubt there will be a new contract offer.

“I suppose it’s been dependent on what’s happened with the takeover of the club as well.”

Dickov added: “I won’t stand in anyone’s way if they express the desire to leave because what I can do now is offer players long-term security and buying into the long-term success of the club.

“If someone doesn’t want to be part of that, in the nicest possible sense, they can go.”

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

T

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
