The January transfer window is in full swing and there haven’t been too many big links regarding incomings at Norwich City – until now.

Everyone’s favourite source of transfer speculation on Twitter, Cory@iwritethings23 has uncovered a link to French defender, William Remy via France Football.

The crux of this report is that this lad is 27 years old and can play either centre back or midfield although defence is his preferred and usual position.

He joined Legia Warsaw from Montpellier last January and although he interests Amiens, he “should take the direction of Norwich.”

The report goes on to say that he should sign a three and a half year deal with the Canaries.

I have a few questions about this, namely, it strikes me as to why he is leaving Legia Warsaw after just one year and at 27, he might be a little too old, maybe, for Stuart Webber’s usual player blueprint?

Having said that, at 27 he should be in his prime now and we are leaking goals. I also wonder if this means anything in relation to Timm Klose, or not?

Hopefully not, with Daniel Farke expecting him to stay at Norwich this month and therefore for the rest of the season.

Another thing that crosses my mind is that any players purchased in January will not only probably cost a pretty penny but also that there’s the balance of buying maybe Premier League capable players, or at least who have the ability to step up.

Sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself!

  • Very bassong like. I think we should have just got Hanley back in (but he is out again now). Once Lewis is back just go with Godfrey and Klose.

    Hasn’t settled in Warsaw and wants away out.

    We need a backup left back more importantly and another quick winger

  • Can’t argue with that, Bears. We are in a difficult situation that I doubt the club expected to be in. Buying players now they must surely need to be thinking for next year but which division will we be in? No point buying Championship players for the PL but that’s what we need now.
    Rock and a hard place…

  • Current squad would be stronger with him. Plus, to cut costs, it would be easy to take a permanent marker and change a shirt name from either Godfrey or Tettey to Remy if the need arose, as he has the ability to play both in and in front of the back line… but he would need to prove that he is good enough to be selected for games this season to be remotely considered for our possible Premier League line-up. Loan with a permanent option?
