With Leeds ending their pursuit of David Stockdale after signing Jamal Blackman, and Ipswich tieing down Bartosz Bialkowski to a new deal, it means we will have to reconsider our plans for a new goalkeeper.

In yesterday’s post, I laid out three potential options: keeping faith with Connal Trueman, reintegrating our transfer listed keepers or redoubling our efforts to recruit a new number one.

Surprisingly, when I polled supporters about which solution we should look towards, recalling Stockdale and Kuszczak was the one most people went for:

We are talking about a lot of hypotheticals at the moment, with very little in the way of concrete information. The FFP issues could go away very quickly, and we could be in for frantic few weeks of signings before the close of the transfer window.

In contrast, the reported embargo could still remain in place. I think we have to be prepared for the worst scenario, and at least consider talking to either Stockdale or Kuszczak. I don’t think Trueman is ready for Championship football so ensuring we do have more options is of vital importance.

I would much prefer us to get a new signing through the door, but nobody knows if that’s possible currently. We will just have to play the waiting game.
