Sounds like both.

His YouTube video looks like he’s a winger but most websites seem to say he’s a full back.

From the short clips I did manage to find he certainly looks pacey. Lennon clearly likes pace in his teams

He was described as a winger when he signed for Sunderland. Wore number 7 and seemed to play right wing for Panathinaikos as well.

Expected to be confirmed on Monday.

His agent seems to think its a done deal on twitter.

Looking forward to seeing what he can add. Sounds like he was on trial, so he must have something about him.

Looks like he can play anywhere across the right hand side.

Also I wonder if the club have another one or two on trial? No one knew that we had this lad on trial so who knows, we might have 1-2 players training with us looking to impress Lennon and the coaching staff for a permanent contract.

Yeh, I don't think Mavrias is a striker though, and neither was Watmore who did play for us.

If this boys predominantly a winger does it suggest bad news in regards to agyepong?

green day
14-10-2018, 05:38 PM
Although not strictly on track, we certainly seem to be bringing in a few players who have played at a very good standard - Horgan, Milligan, Mavrias, Kamberi, and (I hope perm) Maclaren.

These guys will, given their previous, presumably also be on pretty good money?

I wonder if this will put to bed some of the "wheres all the money gone" chat that we had a month or so back?

Why would it mean he’s getting released?


The formation options Lennon has this season are terrific, and obviously no fluke. We have full backs who can just defend , wing backs , and out and out wingers .. we have seriously lacked width in our squad for years and it lools like lennon has addressed the issue with the squad he is building. Throw in 4 quality centre halfs , 5 central midfielders , 2 strong goalkeepers. I still think we could do with one more good quality centre forward in the squad as its the one area we do lack strength in depth.

Your right. Just don't see why we'd need another right winger. Agyepong had a bad injury last season and seems to be out again. If the guys Beeing signed as a right back or rwb then nothing to worry about.

Although he has played for us more on the right so far, I’m pretty sure wee Tam is more of a left winger

If that's the case having back up on both wings would be brilliant. Having plenty pace in the team will always cause others problems.

Not sure what’s worse, the last thread descending into a political correctness debate, or the new one about to descent into a pun thread.

Anyway, we’re on the verge of securing a new signing. I see at 16 years old, he became the 2nd youngest player to ever play in the Champions League at the time. Was clearly considered a wonder kid, but career has stalled due to bad moves by the look of it.

Sunderland bought him for £3 million, but didn’t play him at first due to ‘fitness issues’. When he was loaned out to Fortuna Düsseldorf, they tried to buy him, but Sunderland rejected the offer and took him back, only to play him once against Arsenal and not threaten the 1st team again.

His next team in German got relegated from Bundesliga 2 to 3. And his team last year finished 2nd in Croatia, but he barely got a sniff. Seems to be one with lots of talent, but perhaps lack of confidence. Lennon seems to be the type to get the best out of someone like that.

I think we have got 8 games in December so it will be all hands on deck, and will be no bad thing to have quality and depth in the squad.

I get that its short term, but January is 3 months away. That's REALLY short term IMO. Squad depth for December could prove vital right enough but it's not very long (or indeed, IMO, long enough) for him to consistently prove himself as either quality or gash.

Is that really a huge problem? There's no signing fee attached, we're only out 2 or 3 months salary if he turns out to be gash and we have some cover if Motherwell or someone tries kicking all our defenders into hospital just before our big clutch of tough games (like what happened last season).

Besides, given we're playing something like 8 games in December, we're really just bringing on a temp to help cope with the Christmas rush...
