Ollie's little treasure

Look who's back. Lomano Tresor Lua Lua announced his return to English football in some style last night, scoring twice and having a hand in another as his new club Blackpool spanked Leeds for five at Elland Road. "Gymnastic fantastic", to quote Sir Bobby Robson...

From strikers past to strikers (potentially) future, the Mirror claim that Blackburn will be asking for £18m for Junior Hoilett in the January transfer window. The Canadian may have been one of Rovers' only bright sparks so far this season, but that would be an exorbitant fee even if his contract wasn't up at the end of the season. It'll be interesting to see how things develop (and if Venkys get a whiff of realism), because he's a tasty prospect.

Junior Hoilett would be a fantastic addition but, as you say, the fee seems extreme.

I would caution against prefacing his as Canadian as he's a source of controversy on these shores because he's yet to declare for Canada. Possibly angling for a chance to pull on the Three Lions.
