Ha, great minds. I won the Champions League with them, but took 2 seasons to get up as I had to sell my best player (Alex Sykes) to pay for ground increase in order to be allowed into the football league.

Bradley Dack is rated in the £20m bracket (totally fair price when you consider Maddison's price), so £5m would be a joke if that is true (surely doubtful).

Richard Keogh is nearing his mid 30s and has never, ever been good enough for this league!

I can't imagine there being much in these, I hope!

We don't need another centre half in all fairness. Would love to see us pinch dack off them though would be hilarious

A centre half and an average championship level one at that, will not be on our shipping list this Jan. We have Mee, Tarks, Gibson, Long and also the very highly rated Dunne. Plus in an emergency all of Taylor, Ward and Bardsley can and have played there.

Dack will comfortably command £10m+ in current market.

I agree. I'd expect £10-12 million for him. Maybe even stretching to £15 million. But you know how we love to start low.

Transfer window speculation is a bit like wanting double top to check out at darts and firing a shotgun at the board, yes you'll get double 20, but you'll get every other score as well.

I saw it this morning from an ITK account with 250 followers. So not great!

I'd hope that was just someone getting the info from a more reputable account as he probably fits the bill in what we need.

It's certainly not gospel, so don't hold me to it. I hope it's true though about Dack. He would be a very welcome signing.

Keogh? I wouldn't have him on a free, he's a liability. If we've bid for him it's time to pack in Managment.

Not that I believe it for a second but Richard Keogh would be one of the worst signings in recent memory.

This is the worst part of each and every transfer window. The rumours are from some ridiculous twitter page that the likes of Clarets Turf put all over Facebook and the stories just carry and carry. Neither will be true but will be guaranteed to be brought up in every pub in town on Saturday either getting people’s hopes up or doing the opposite ‘as if we’re going after Keogh. He’s useless!’

Really grinds my gears!

You'd have to be smacked off your tits if you think that we are interested in Richard Keogh

And WBA were after Dack in the summer, and the figure mentioned was a bit higher than £5 million!

Sky Sports and every tabloid in the land employ people who do exactly that. Sifting through all websites like ours looking for gossip and snippets of information to fill their airtime and/or sports print. The same information is picked up or passed on to football agents and the rest of the social network. A good piece of info spreads like wild-fire.

Then that's possibly where the 'lazy journalism' tag comes from then. Anyone that uses this board regularly knows that any thread with a mention of players incoming that has any truth in it whatsoever seems to disappear pretty quickly as it did from Clarets Mad back in the day.

Can't see how BurnleyPetes player would qualify as he's only been in Belgium 2 years and Tanzania are about 125 in the FIFA rankings.
