Nothing doing

Chris Hughton seems to have been doing nothing but uttering denials over the last couple of days.

On a trio of alleged transfer targets: "You always continue to take calls and our business has been on-going. There’s been talk about Sol Campbell and Andy O’Brien in the past and there are always names that keep coming up – but we have not looked into signing those players. And Jimmy Bullard is another player that has not been mentioned. "

On the possibility of Bigger Lad being poached by the Premier League champions: "I can say 100% that I have not heard anything from Chelsea. To me that is just speculation. We've got no intention of seeing Andy Carroll leave.".

On the prospect of Rangers striker Kris Boyd moving south: "Kris Boyd is a good player but I can categorically say that there have been no talks at this stage. You never want to say 100% no, but it's a non-starter at this moment."

Er, hang on a minute, Chris - you "never want to say 100% no", but isn't that EXACTLY what you've just done with the speculation over Bigger Lad's future? Hmm...

LOL, Andy Carroll wanted by Chelsea, priceless !! Talk about square pegs in round holes, lol. Are you sure it's not the Chelsea Ladies's team who want him ?? LOL

You can LOL all you like (which seems to be a lot), but their interest has been widely reported, so as unlikely as it might seem, I suspect there's probably some truth to it.
