Definitely would not mind having Campbell back. The only reason we didn't sign him on a more permanent basis is that Arsenal, in the past, wanted 6-7mil for him.

Would make the winger situation very competitive and interesting.

Portuguese media saying Rui Fonte flying in to Olympiacos. Looks like it'll be a loan.

Not sure what his salary is, but it looks like we will be paying half of it for the loan while Fulham covers the other half.

According to Dedryck Boyata's agent, CB/RB at Celtic, we made an offer of 7 mil pounds along with an 8 mil offer from Fenerbahce that were both rejected. Supposedly he wants out because Celtic refuse to give him a raise and a new contract. Agent appeared frustrated that Celtic won't pay him and won't sell him either.

It would appear we are still looking to bolster our defense.

Rui Fonte loan appears to be on hold. Fulham want to sell him, not just loan him. Looks like someone in Portugual is willing to pay their asking price of about 8 million pounds.

I can’t see us spending big $$$$ on a centre back, we did so with Engels  and that didn’t wiek our for us. We’re looking to offload him and the only interest we have had has been from championship clubs.
Campbell has ended up in Italy, not a bad thing as I don’t want our transfer policy to be based on bringing back past players like we have done with Fetfatzid and Torosidi.

Yea I was surprised when I read what Boyata's agent said. I don't think we offered that much money for him, I'm sure there was embellishment. Although I would not be surprised if we did make an offer in the neighborhood of a couple million.

Some new rumours about Rui Fonte. Looks like we may have offered a buyout clause in the loan, but Fulham wants assurance against the risk we don't sign permanently. If we don't purchase outright, they may want to charge us 1 million for the loan, with a buyout of 3-4 million. Don't understand this if it really is true. Too much conversation about it for it to be completely made up. Makes no sense with the Karim sale rumours now quiet.

As for Engels, it looks like we could be loaning him to one of the championship sides that showed interest.

A new day and new rumours with about 2 weeks left in the window.

Rui Fonte rumours continue to be weird. Portuguese outlets say his xfer is imminent while British outlets make it appear as if he does not want to come to Greece at all any may end up in Portugual or Brazil.

Franco Soldano rumours flaring up as well. Perhaps as a result of the turbulent Rui Fonte deal. Argentine sources say that he will be saying his goodbye to his team to fly to Greece at the end of the week.

We made an offer for Mikel Agu, Nigerian midfielder playing for Porto, but the player has stated he wants to play in France or Spain. France is his preference. But if Porto don't get the offer they want from Marseille or Bordeaux we could have a chance. Not sure how I feel about having a player that doesn't want to be here.

Guillerm is on his way apparently.  He even liked/followed olympiakos on social media today.

The Egyptian striker Kouka is coming to Athens tomorrow.  Guillerme is arriving in Athens today.
