Jay Dasilva on loan

In preparation for confirmation that Ademola Lookman's Charlton career is over, De Cloob have moved to bring in a temporary replacement. Eighteen year old Chelsea youth winger, Jay Dasilva, has signed on loan until the end of the season. On the face of it he is a close fit for Lookman - young, slight, attacking and will be playing on the left wing.

News too that Sheffield Wednesday are back looking to sign Morgan Fox. They were refuted to have offered £2m for him in August although I found that hard to believe considering we didn't sell. I assume the fee may be closer to £1m and that it will go through, partly because Duchatelet wants to cut his losses but also because Morgan Fox needs a change of scenery. He's become an easy target and scape-goat for a number of poor performances and results this season. Personally, I think he has the makings of a top flight full-back. He's not had great covering support for some time on the left and with a snail-paced centre-mid this season he has often been exposed and pulled about all over the place. I for one will miss him and wish him all the best for playing in a stronger side where I am sure he will hold his own in the Championship as he has done for us previously.

News too from Belgium that the Old Goat and his wife have been spouting more tripe to the media. This time he's making no bones about his lack of footballing ambition and again talking about attending games being a social occasion where everyone has fun (irrespective of the football)  - weird. Interesting to hear him again call Chris Powell unintelligent on the basis he didn't do what he was told by Duchatelet in terms of who to play and what formations. He also contradicts himself once again by claiming not to have told Powell who to pick or how to play.  I think we all know where we sit in terms of who is honest and intelligent, and who isn't.
