Cooky’s been Fox hunting
It’s transfer deadline day and I’m sure, even if we do no business, that there might be the odd former Claret on the move. Georges-Kévin NKoudou is likely to join Monaco from Tottenham Hotspur on loan while midfielder Kevin McDonald could join a new club with him now out of favour at Fulham.
But one move that did go through this week was left-back cum central defender Danny Fox who has left Nottingham Forest and signed for Paul Cook at Wigan. It was an unlikely move to be honest given he’s been a regular in the Forest team this season and he’s only been out of the team recently because of the red card he received in their defeat at Reading almost three weeks ago.
After five years at Forest, they did no more than announce his departure and wish him the best of luck while former Claret Cook said of his new signing: “Danny has great experience in the Premier League and Championship and is a great addition to our squad.
“Great credit to Danny for joining us after captaining Nottingham Forest in their promotion push in the Championship. I think our supporters would appreciate that leadership and experience amongst our very young back five has been something we have been searching for and we are delighted to have found it in Danny.”
Fox was a January window signing for us nine years ago, arriving from Celtic during the early days of Brian Laws’ time as manager. He scored on his debut in a 2-1 win against West Ham but that was his only goal in fifty league appearances for us before a shock departure in August 2011. Having played in the first two games of the season we accepted an offer from Southampton where he helped them win promotion to the Premier League.Share this page :
