Mikel Merino. Signed
« on: July 26, 2017, 02:36:40 PM »
Word from Marca is that NUFC have agreed in principle to sign him from Borussia Dortmund on a season long loan.   Not sure how true,  nor do I know owt about him apart from apparently he's a midfielder.  Thoughts?

lee ryder posting about it too. loan or a permanent deal. never seen him, but if dortmund thought he had talent, he must have qualities. much more like a benitez signing this one, apparently a centre midfielder, who can play defence, also very good passer.

Benitez wanted him according to reports, so will be happy to have him. We really do need some more creativity from midfield, as right now Shelvey is the only real creative player, hopefully this guy could provide some but have no idea what he has to offer as don't think I have ever seen him play.

Lets face it getting anyone in at the moment that Benitez wants is a move in the right direction but I think we really need a few proven quality players in if we are not going to be facing a struggle this season.

Dortmund fans seem to think it's a loan w/ option. He didn't really have a shot in their midfield with Weigl, Sahin, Dahoud, Kagawa, Guerreiro, Castro and Rode all ahead of him.

Comes highly rated as a pivot midfielder, doesn't look owa strong but looks good on the ball.

Think this is a great signing, albeit a loan. If he is successful, we have the option to make it permanent. Desperate for some creativity & someone who can pass & bring technical skills to the side. You can't moan with this acquisition.

This is a good signing but unless we spend some real money on  real strength these young lads are in for a hard time
