Bowyer for Murphy plus £2.5m?

Rumours continue to circulate about the future of Danny Murphy despite the club's continuing insistence that he is going nowhere. It must have an unsettling effect. The latest one is that Charlton is holding out for £2.5m plus Bowyer if Murphy is to go to Newcaste. What lies behind a lot of this is surely a desperation on the part of Souness to show that he is doing something to meet the impossibly high expectations of Barcode supporters.

We are also reported to continue to be interested in Dean Ashton who in my view is overvalued at £7m. The club has reportedly offered £5m + Lisbie which gives him an implied valuation of £2m which, of course, does not interest Norwich.

The lack of any incoming players is causing some frustration among the Addickted. During the last week Brakes have brought in a quality striker and a quality defender from the Southern League. Mind you, probably no more than a case of Brakes Fluid changed hands.
