How to get back in the Premier League’s top four? Purchase Championship wingers, apparently…
We don’t know if this rumour has any truth in it, as there’s seemingly endless tenuous transfer links floating about right now – but today’s Nathan Redmond link is unlikely to get Kopite’s pulses running.

The Daily Star reckon Brendan Rodgers is sniffing around the Norwich winger, who recently saw his side win promotion to the Premier League in the play-offs.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a fine season, and is heading to the European Under-21s with England, but the last time he was in the top flight, he hardly pulled up any trees.
His talent is unquestioned, but really, we need proven experienced attackers – who we know for sure will contribute goals and assists.
Redmond’s scored the grand total of 12 league goals in five professional seasons, which is nowhere near prolific enough for a player who’d be used on either flank of a front-three.
If we sign players like Redmond, Danny Ings (the Independent) and Christian Benteke (Sky Sports) – we’re simply not going to transform the way we need to.
