I am not very sure about his signing, he hasn't played much for sometime.. but he should be cheap and since it is a short term contract this could be a risk worth taking.. welcome, hopefully he can recover some of his Ajax form..

Obviously match fitness is always going to be an issue when you sign someone on a free transfer, but pulling someone out of hibernation like this is a bit much and I'd actually rather we tried to throw a bit of money Osasuna's way to get Oriol Riera back.

Most random signing ever. Hopefully he plays well for us.

He hasn't played a competitive game in 9 months, people. By the time Babel reaches the level to play in La Liga, Joselu will be back. This is a knee-jerk signing and I agree with Danny - we should've paid Osasuna the financial penalty to get Riera back. The decision to go with only two recognised strikers has come back to bite us. Only a matter of time before the same happens in the CB position. The positions along the spine of the team should always be double covered. The sporting direction is squarely to blame here.

Wonder what young Oscar will be thinking. Lucas gone, Luis F gone, Riera out on loan, Joselu injured and he still can't get anywhere near the first team. 1 goal in 14 playing in the UAE is hardly comforting.

He played 4 games as a striker for Kasimpasa in Turkey and 20+ games as a left winger.

I quite happy with this capture, there were lot worse choices in the market. He is a quality player who should do well with us. Welcome!
