Pulled out of the hat or what ?

Ghanian International with 13 caps but not wanted at Utrech who by the way got humped 4-0 Sunday.

This kind of confirms Sols departure ?

If we do sign him, how many of us are going to turn into a bunch of giggling 10 year olds the first few times his name's announced on the team sheet?

Google translation...........................

"FC Utrecht has managed to sell the superfluous Francis Dickoh. If the medical examination Tuesday no problems, the Danish defender moved permanently to Hibernian.

The 27-year-old Dickoh was not included in the plans of coach Ton du Chatinier. For both the club and the player was therefore an early farewell to the best solution for the desperate situation. Hibernian moved into a club on the Dane and FC Utrecht together could deliver.

Dickoh, in Scotland for a season, drawing, traded in 2006 for FC Utrecht FC Nordsjślland. Past two years he was not valued in the Galgenwaard. This season he is not in action in the Utrecht main force."

Translates as........

The Scottish club Hibernian FC, the new Francis Dickoh. The central defender signed a one-year contract in Edinburgh provided he comes through the medical examination.

Francis Dickoh played since the summer of 2006 for FC Utrecht. He had an ongoing commitment to the end of this season. FC Utrecht wishes him every success in the course of his career

Unfortunatley Lucio's wage demands oustripped the clubs limits so you'll just have to make do. A Ghanaian international, in an area we all agree needs strengthened, and still the gloom and doom merchants have their go!

I'm sure he'll be hands on and let's hope he's not pulled off on his debut.

unless were losing sol then i wish he would give the kids a chance like mixu was going to, the only one he has given a chance is wortherspoon with his talent it would be hard not to.

In my eyes the defence and midfield are ok - with Anthony 'can I borrow £50 for the casino mate' Stokes away to the Holes (hoops - whatever) and Zouma still out we need a player thats gonna unlock defences with Deek - we cant leave it all to Nish after all...pfffft!
