Lots of media reports (Sky Sports etc.) that we have snatched Schalke's 23 year old left back Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer. Apparently he was in talk with a number of clubs, but we seem to have convinced him with a very high salary.
He would be a good player. Very strong physically, a fighter, a very good defender and decent in the attack as well. 3 goals and 5 assists this season - at Schalke! - is more than our full backs have mustered combined in the last couple of seasons.
This video captures his strengths well, from winning the ball back to the goal:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EK_oMapE8rg
