Steven Nzonzi & Jimmy Kebe

Steven Nzonzi & Jimmy Kebe
Reports in Stoke suggest that City and West Ham are considering bids for Stoke's 24 year old want away midfielder, Steven Nzonzi.

After this morning's Johnjo Shelvey talk this is a player that would be more like it, I feel.

Nzonzi has reiterated that he wants to leave the Britannia despite a change of manager. Apparently Mark Hughes is determined to get a 'significant fee' for his player.

Whenever I've seen him he has been full of energy and is certainly a worker. He was one of the few players to emerge with any credit in Blackburn's relegation season and this earned him a 3m move to Stoke for whom he made 38 appearances last season.

To my mind he is more in the Bradley Johnson style of midfielder and isn't much of a goal scorer - he has only found the net seven times in a career spanning 175 games.

A good signing? I would say so but we still need a goal scoring midfield player so CH must have other ideas as well. This isn't the first time we've been linked with Nzonzi since he made his unhappiness at Stoke known, so maybe there is something in it.

And then we have yet another link to Jimmy Kebe. We seem to have been linked to him for the last three years or so.

My problem with Jimmy though, is that he is often inconsistent in his end product and coupled with his age of 29 years I would pass on him.

We can surely do better.

I would also have Kebe in our squad....29 isnt old in todays game...he would be a good cog in our bid to become an established Premier league side even for say 2-3 seasons.

The bid for Kebe has been reported as 2.5 m. At that price he is worth a punt. He has PL experience, which would help him get up to pace pretty quickly. A figure of 12 m has been mooted for Nzonzi. Absolutely ridiculous, he is not worth that for what he has to offer.
