He has the same birthday as me!

Not sure what to make of this. Giving a coach a few players of their own to grease the wheels is generally a good idea, but then I have no faith the coach will still be here by next March.

I think for the money, it’s a really good signing. Home grown, still young but with a decent level of experience. From what I’ve seen of him he’s always looked a decent player and has stood out to be one of the better players during his time at Leicester.

I don’t think he’s an exciting high profile name signing, but I think he’s a solid first team player that can play the no. 8 position in Maresca’s setup. 

This gives us 6 good players for a 3 man midfield, plus 1 or maybe 2 of Santos, Ugochukwu and Casadei (unless they all go on loan.


Just need to keep them all fit.

Think we've gotten good value for money here overall. Should be able to immediately step in, with little to no settling period or adjustment as would generally be the case with most transfers. 

Provides a bit of everything in that midfield position - speed, creativity, goals, vision, energy, mobility, and defensive work. 

Also provides us with another who can take set pieces - or at least corner kicks. Not sure if he took direct free kicks at Leicester or not.

Welcome Dewsbury-Hall.
