Gary Johnson: Planning on doing business in the New Year

Gary Johnson: Planning on doing business in the New Year

The Glovers have allowed Dan Seaborne to link up with Sky Bet League One outfit Coventry City on loan, and that agreement could be extended, while striker Paddy Madden has been made available.

Johnson says he will be open to offers in the New Year, with departures freeing up space for possible arrivals.

He said in the Western Gazette: "Dan Seaborne is already at Coventry and I think they're looking to maintain that. We've got to look at that depending on our situation at the time.

"It depends who it is, but if anyone comes in for one or two of the others, we will have to consider it."

While prepared to discuss outgoings, Johnson is hoping there will be positive news on the incoming front - with loan extensions being sought.

Yeovil currently have Everton duo John Lundstram and Shane Duffy on their books, while Liam Fontaine and Ishmael Miller have been taken off Bristol City and Nottingham Forest respectively.

Johnson added: "It depends. We're looking to renew first and then see what we have got after that.

"It's not easy to get hold of some managers at this time of the season when they are flitting and flirting with training, Christmas and their families.

"The Everton lads we have certainly gone down that road a bit further. We will have to make contact with the other clubs and their representatives as quickly as we can.

"There's been initial contact but they have said to wait until later in their loan."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
