Been out for a while but I'd rather sign someone who's had a big injury than lots of little ones (Ogbonna v Reid if you like). But the loan deal would allow us to evaluate that and we are currently selling Sakho for £10m who has had injury issues as well as plenty other ones.
No longer a cheap signing unless you go abroad which we don't seem to fancy doing for some reason. Unless we get this Russian in but rushing we are not.
He was quick, but 2 major injuries have a way of stealing a yard of pace off a striker. Also I do not know if I agree if he would exactly suit Moyes game plan if he will be playing as a lone striker, because he us rather small and would likely encounter the sake problems as Chico holding up the ball given Moyes tactics of hoofing it long. Ings, much like Chico's best work has come in a striker partnership with a target man (Vokes) and we are yet to see how he would fare without a strike partner. If we were to sign him, he would have to play with Carroll or may be just as ineffective as Chico. Honestly I would much rather we go after a striker who ticks all the boxes Moyes wants and can do it as a lone striker.
