Re: BFC TRANSFER NEWS Jan 2020(MUST CONTAIN LINK)

I'd be prioritising a right-back personally given the way Lowton has been this season. Timothy Fosu-Mensah, just returned form injury, only 22 and played 33 PL games last season and is only on 15k-a-week at United. I can't see him displacing Wan-Bissaka or Dalot for their spots.
