Maybe Mayuka?

It seems we may have developed a taste for African strikers. No sooner had Emmanuel Mayuka helped Zambia to a shock African Cup of Nations final victory over Mr T's Ivory Coast on Sunday, than his agent was claiming we've taken a shine to him, along with Arsenal, Fulham and a clutch of other clubs. He did his bit in the final but didn't impress me as much as midfielder Isaac Chansa and defender Stoppila Sunzu, who kept Didier Drogba quiet and then held his nerve to score the decisive penalty in the shoot-out.

Meanwhile, we're apparently hovering over the corpse of Bolton's season, waiting to pounce for midfielder Mark Davies if they're relegated. He's been one of the few bright sparks for the Trotters this campaign, and would be a handy alternative to Dreamboat in terms of providing creativity in central midfield without sacrificing a willingness to get stuck in.

One player who could well be leaving us is Peter Lovenkrands, reportedly a loan target for Cardiff. Haris Vuckic is already down there, of course - anyone else you want to borrow, Malkay?
