Derek Adams: Set for double deal

Ross County manager Derek Adams is set to sign Manchester City goalkeeper Eirik Johansen and Greek defender Evangelos Ikonomou.

Johansen, who is set to join on loan, is listed in City's elite development squad.

The 21-year-old Norwegian, who is 6ft 4in tall and has trained with his national team, went out on loan to Scunthorpe last season.

He will battle for the goalkeeper's jersey with Michael Fraser, who has started the last four games after ousting Mark Brown.

Left-back Ikonomou joined County last January and played 18 games, losing just four times, before returning to his homeland in the summer to join Super League side Veria.

Adams, whose team host St Johnstone on Saturday after their New Year's Day derby against Inverness, said: "We are working on a few things for the St Johnstone game.

"We are just waiting on international clearance for Eirik Johansen, a goalkeeper from Manchester City.

"And we are waiting on international clearance for Ikonomou, who was with us last season. He has been training with us for a few days.

"He's a player that did well for us last season and hopefully he can do the same again. He's 26 years old and he's a good, solid defender.

"It gives us competition in that area. We have got Ben Gordon, who did well on Sunday against Aberdeen but Ben can play further forward as well so that gives us options on the left-hand side."

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.

There is plenty of reaction to Mourinho's antics (Isn't that exactly what he wanted?) plus thoughts on Connor Wickham, Fabio Borini, beach balls and Tim Sherwood...
