For starters the guy who is asking about Ricketts on the Leeds site says he got the rumour from a city message board. Im willing to bet the origin of the rumour was TonyD's 'article' about Ricketts joining City that he posted a couple of days ago. Plus JP says no imminent signings. So in other words i dont think anything will come of the rumour.
I cant help thinking that Goaters age was a problem for us, especially with having Deano. Ricketts may still be an option and i would hope he is the quality of striker we are looking at, funds permitting of course.
ricketts is on 8 grand a week at leeds he is definitly not coming here ,also i heard harry redknap has ordered a scout to watch marc bridge wilkinson at hartlepool after being alerted about his performances in the pre season,but i dont know how reliable the rumour is.
We might if Ricketts was coming here - have to pay part of his wages as part of the deal.
Re MBW - hope not - if we were offered a fee - cannot see us hanging on to him - presumably he would want to go for the higher level of footie and higher wages.
