It has been very quiet on the transfer front over the last few weeks and a quick glance at Twitter shows that fans are getting pretty agitated with it.

We’ve been linked with so many players and the club’s ridiculous ‘club insider’ column has got so many fans’ hopes up – but maybe we’re getting somewhere at last?

Jack Sullivan, love him or hate him, has tweeted this evening that the club ‘hope’ to announce an ‘eight figure’ deal this week.

It’s no secret what player that deal is most likely to involve – Marseille’s Dmitri Payet.

Our pursuit of the France international is almost developing in to a full blown transfer saga – who needs Raheem Sterling to Man City rumours? – but if Jack’s on the money then we’ll be finding out one way or another whether the player will indeed be signing for us. Given that it’s an eight figure fee it doesn’t take a mathematician to know we’ll be signing for £10million plus. Tidy.

For the club’s sake I hope the deal pulls through, as well as the fans I interact daily on Twitter who appear to be going out of their minds with frustration.

Otherwise it’s all going to kick off on everyone’s favourite social network…
