Definitely would be someone to consider. Whilst Vernon and Mackie will huff and puff all day long, we desperately need someone who will create something out of nothing and will be that creative spark. Griffiths would fit that bill.

Well, all EPL clubs can only register a maximum of 25 players for the forthcoming campaign (well, up to the transfer window, anyway). With most EPL clubs holding more than 25 senior players on their books, could well be a chance for Pa Broon to net a really decent striker on a season-long loan deal.

Presume this is not going to happen but still talk of a loan in:

Wolves striker Leigh Griffiths could be allowed to return to Scotland on loan after all with Aberdeen and Hibernian both linked to a move.

 

The 21-year-old, who travelled with the squad for tonight’s Carling Cup second round tie at Northampton, has yet to make a competitive appearance for the club since signing for £150,000 from Dundee in January.

 

Manager Mick McCarthy is keen for Griffiths to go out on loan to an English club, but no offer has been forthcoming.

 

With that in mind, McCarthy admits a move to the Scottish Premier League, where Aberdeen and Hibernian both play, could be another option.

 

He said: “A few clubs in Scotland have shown interest. I want him to play football and my preference is for him to do that in England.

 

“But, if it’s in Scotland then, fine and I have told them that.”

if he was even a possibility, i doubt we'd have signed chalali though. and if he WAS a possibility, now that we've signed chalali i doubt broon would be pulling out the stops to sign him.

 

I'd like to know what creative-ish midfielders are available for loan. certainly won't be pleased if we don't recruit one or two more bodies.

Full back and Winger I would hope

Not really fussed by this

 

LEIGH GRIFFITHS' GOALS

2008/09 - Livingston 19 goals

2009/10 - Dundee 19 goals

2010/11* - Dundee 10 goals (* left in January)

                                (48)

 

DENNIS WYNESS GOALS

2000–2003 Inverness CT 67 Goals

2003–2006 Heart of Midlothian 11

2005–2006      Inverness CT (loan)  8

2006–2008 Inverness CT 6

2008–2010 St. Mirren    2

                                            (94)

 

Can score goals in the lower devisions but when it comes to the SPL not overly prolific. Take Dennis Wyness for example.

 

But still more prolific than Mackie  :hammer:

 

1998–present Aberdeen 57

2004 Inverness (loan) 0

Another young Scottish player moving south too soon.  Wonder where he will end up. Suppose Hibs might have the cash to sign him, not sure anyone else up here will.

Third Division, 2nd Division, Leage 1?

Wolves are prepared to sell fringe strikers Andy Keogh and Leigh Griffiths next month.

 

All three are currently on loan until early January with Keogh at Leeds, Griffiths at Hibernian while Sam Vokes is at Burnley.

 

“These are fringe players we’re talking about,” said boss Mick McCarthy.

 

“Leigh isn’t going to get in my team so if I can sell him, I’ll sell him.

 

“Andy Keogh hasn’t really been involved in the Premier League. So we’ve loaned him out and he’s for sale. They’re the ones who are available, not the first-team squad players.”

 

Griffiths, 21, was a £150,000 signing from Dundee only last January but McCarthy admits the Scot isn’t going to force his way into his plans.

 

“I don’t see him getting in my first team now. And if it means we sell him on with a sell-on clause, so be it.

 

“Colin Calderwood wanted to sign him (when he was Hibernian boss) and I’ve had a discussion with Hibs boss Pat Fenlon and we’re leaving it as it is for now.

 

“There are a couple of other Scottish clubs who fancy Leigh.”

 

McCarthy would be happy for Keogh, who cost £650,000 five years ago, to rejoin Leeds permanently.

 

“If Leeds or someone else want to sign him, I’d be prepared to sell him,” he said.

 

McCarthy is undecided on Vokes, who has scored twice in six games for the Clarets.

 

“My own personal jury is out on that one,” he said. “He was flying here just before he went to Burnley.

 

“He played at Chelsea in the reserves and everyone said how well he played. In training, it was the best I’d seen him.

 

“Now he’s gone to Burnley and scored, so I’d be more inclined to have him back and take a look at him, unless someone knocked me out with an offer too good to be true.”

 

Meanwhile, McCarthy wants to see Michael Kightly back in action for Wolves.

 

The winger is currently in his second month on loan at Watford, where he’s scored twice in seven games before today.

 

“Kightly will be coming back at some stage and I want to see him when he’s had six, seven eight games and see if he’s back to the player he was when he was ‘ripping it up’,” said the boss.

 

“I’ve got my fingers firmly crossed that will be the case, because he’s terrific.”

 

Midfielder David Davis, who has impressed for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, could be loaned closer to home in the new year.

 

“David has done particularly well apparently,” said the boss.

 

“Although they want to keep him, if we can get him into a Championship club or somewhere else that continues his development, then fine.”
