SIGNED - Hope Akpan

by Coppell's Right Footed 11 » 07 Jan 2013 22:45

The guy who reported our interest in Victor Anichebe reportedly got his wires crossed and meant Crawley Town central midfielder Hope Akpan.

Great. A player with a bad track record, homophobic remarks from him on twitter one time, he was found guilty for this.

Sent off last year for breaking another players leg in an awful challenge.

No wonder he's gone from Everton to Hull to Crawley in a short space of time.

Please let this be just a silly rumour!

I don't care if you completely regret sending a homophobic tweet, or 'accidentally' broke someones leg (in two places), I don't want a player like that here.

Also. Being told about prem experience, and then this? I mean championship experience would have been frustrating...

More on the potential new signing at the Madejski Stadium, Sky Sports understands Reading are poised to sign highly-rated Crawley Town midfielder Hope Akpan. Akpan is currently undergoing a medical at the Premier League club and is expected to sign a three-and-a-half year deal to join Brian McDermott's side. The former Everton youngster is thought to have impressed Reading during the FA Cup clash between the two sides on Saturday.

This could be disruptive in the dressing room for our gay players. For that reason I'm out (not in that way).

This deal lokos set to go ahead, and as much as its not a player with great experience we should try to be positive, BMC's transfer record is pretty good and i would say any player he has signed for the first team as been succesful, so we have no reason to doubt that this wont also be a success
