Surinam Striker Link - Slory Not ?

Weeks before the January transfer window the transfer rumours are already beginning to circulate. Last week there were links with Tottenham's Anthony Gardner, who would I think be a good signing and ready-made replacement for Distin when he goes back to Newcastle.

Tonight however, it's been reported by a number of sources that City have been tracking Excelsior Rotterdam forward, Andwele Slory, who has scored five times in 10 games, just two short of City's pathetic combined total of seven goals to date.

Slory hails from Surinam, just in case you didn't know ( like i didn't ) and can play as a striker or winger.

I don't know where the rumour originated, but why is it that we consistently get linked and often waste money on unknown and un-proven foreign players? Samaras, Corradi, Dabo, Musampa, Riera, Reyna, Vuoso, Tiatto, Sun Jihai, Tarnat to name a recent few, have all had unconvincing times at Eastlands, and the jury is still out on the more established Hamman and Trabelsi, both of whom have hardly played so far this season, but so far the signs have not been that encouraging. Beasley worries me also and I have reservations about whether he'll cut it in the Premiership.

Isn't it time City thought about buying English/British players. If we're going to have a team of average players I'd rather they were home-grown than foreign imports - at least that way it would keep all that wage money in the country !

I have many Dutch friends and they are raving about him so I would think that he is a good buy.

If he's that good, he probably wont end up coming to Eastlands. The problem is that in recent years, most foreign players with great potential never seem to be able to deliver it consistently for us. I think it's time to build the core of the team around British players who just seem better suited to Premiership football

I think the likes of Beasley, Trabelsi, Dabo and Corradi will come good once they have a decent injury free run.
