Unconfirmed rumours

It's that time of year. We can find no independent confirmation of rumours that Brest have shown an interest in Moutaouakil, but given his reported wage level, it would be welcome if they had.

Less welcome is a rumour that Caen are interested in Kelly Youga. If he had been available throughout the whole season, it might have made the marginal difference that would have improved our chances of promotion.

However, the official site has confirmed that England youth skipper Jordan Cousins is to be offered a professional contract on his 17th birthday next year. Other clubs had been expressing an interest in a player who has been hailed as the new Jonjo Shelvey, although I would have thought that was a rather ambiguous tribute. But it means we will get some cash for him if he develops as hoped.
