Vital U's: Transfer + Gossip Column II


INBOUND:

Ashley Vincent - Cheltenham Town - Pens three-year deal following successful loan spell at the Community Stadium. Done Deal!

Danny Woodards - Crewe Alexandra - A number of League One clubs, including the U's, keen on the young right-back but MK Dons win race. No Deal!

Jimmy Walker - Free Agent - Veteran stopper thought to be attracting Lambert's attention after impressive loan spell last season. Likely!

Grant Holt - Shrewsbury Town - After having an initial recent 250,000 bid rejected the U's still seem to have stalled their interest. Unlikely!

David Fox - Blackpool - Ex-Manchester United midfielder wings in to add healthy competition in the centre of midfield. Done Deal!

Magnus Okuonghae - Dagenham & Redbridge - Contract rebel rejects Daggers stay and joins on two-year deal. Done Deal!

Michael Nelson - Free Agent - Wanted by a handful of clubs, in a race which results in Norwich City securing his services. No Deal!

Rob Jones - Hibernian - Giant centre-halve was subject of January transfer bid from U's. Possible

Lee Beevers - Lincoln City - Rejects offer from SPL side Motherwell is favour of move to North Essex. Done Deal!

Ben Williams - Carlisle United Stopper considering contract offer from U`s, as Lambert looks for new keeper, with deal to be decided very soon. Likely!

OUTBOUND:

Mark Yeates - Middlesbrough, Bristol City + Others - The tricky wide-man looks set to sealed a switch to Boro. Done Deal!

Matt Lockwood - Leyton Orient - Could well link up with former boss Geraint Williams and seal an emotional return to the O's in the process. Likely!

Jamie Guy - Dagenham & Redbridge - After loan spell with The Daggers last season a permanent move has been touted, could he be used as bait for Okuonghae? Possible!

Akanni-Sunday Wasiu - Free Agent - Nigerian front-runner will leave when his contract expires in July after unsuccessful spell. Done Deal!

Chris Coyne - Perth Glory + Others - Long running transfer saga looks set to end in a move back to Coyne's homeland. Highly Likely!

Medy Elito - Leyton Orient - Another U's player to be linked with Orient, a loan deal would be the most likely option. Possible!

Dean Gerken - Charlton Athletic + Bristol City - Highly-rated stopper initially linked with Summer move to Charlton Athletic but The Robin secure his signature. Done Deal!

Scott Vernon - Carlisle United - Ex-Oldham goal-poacher linked as possible makeweight in Williams` deal, although Cumbrians keen regardless. Likely!

Of all the transfer rumours, what is quite shocking is how many defenders we have been linked with, and the only striker we have been linked with is Grant Holt.

Got the below email from a Daggers supporter about Magnus Okuonghae; Not impressed with Magnus tbh, he was going nowhere this time last season. We were the only FL club who would give him a chance 2 years ago and he spent a whole season injured pretty much. Then he doesn't even make it clear to us what he's doing and left us hanging til yesterday. I believe other clubs bid more than yourselves so obviously we are unhappy that he can choose where he goes and let a tribunal set the fee which may be less than we could have got. Can't see us getting more than 50k but I would imagine we wanted more like double that. He really improved during last season, got yourself a decent prospect there. Very big, very strong, quick in general but a bit slow on the turn. His main problem is that he isn't sure what to do when strikers go a bit deeper to get the ball and turn to face him, and he isn't very gifted with the ball at his feet. He suits League 2 pretty well, be interested to see how he gets on with you.

So that's interesting. And yeah, bit of a gamble but a free signung who can play in a few positions! Should be at worst okay,..
