Deadline Day is upon us and whilst Nigel Clough has vowed not to panic buy we have seen one bit of business done. Tony McMahon has joined Blackpool on a permanent basis, the twenty seven year old right back has had his contract taken over by Championship Blackpool after making twenty six appearances for us this season. Whilst I think this is a good deal, as McMahon was not a player I wanted to remain at Bramall Lane with only one remaining right back (Brayford on loan) I do believe an adequate back up is required. So now with fans wanting to see a central midfielder, a centre forward and now a right back it could be a busy and demanding day for the management. I agree Clough can not simply panic buy, but if he has targets in mind he needs to make his approaches quick and get deals done quickly, with our record on deadline day (fax machines and journeymen) one would hope we have learned our lesson. I would also hope the loan of Harris can now be extended or a deal to bring him in permanently can be struck.
Possible Right Back Solutions-
Seamus Conneely - Sligo Rovers
Jack Dean - Formally of Fulham
Theo Jones - Formally of Norwich and Brighton
Nii Nortey - Formally of Chelsea
