Was promising at Crewe (47 goals in 117 apps), 15 goals in 46 apps for Brum. I'd take that.

I thought the main reason he left Brentford was cos he wanted to be closer to his family?!

We offered £750k but they want £2m. There's no way we'll pay that much for him. I wouldn't really want him for any more than £1m at his age.

When you look into what we'rr rumoured to have offered for Donaldson, it bemuses me when people go all :shock: :shock: over us offering £1m for a Portugese international with a very respectable goalscoring record and Champions League experience.

CW says he's not sure but it's not the first time his name has been mentioned this week. Suggests there could be something in it?

Born in Bradford, wanted by Leeds. He won't come. No great loss.

It's going to happen, the football gods have conspired purely for the reason that, according to Wikipedia, his first career goal was scored after he came on as a substitute for Gary Alexander.

Good player, the type that would lead the line well, but not sure it would be the best use of (presumably) limited funds with Sa. Pog, Samuel and Cox already on our books. Could all change if Pog gets his move though.

Either way, encouraging to see us active.

I saw both games against Brum last season and thought Donaldson was one of their best players. Would be a good signing, I think. As Winchester Royal pointed out though, might depend on Pog moving on.

Didn't realise that officially he's only 14 months younger than Yakubu.
