Gills Midfielder Linked
Monday, 1st Feb 2016 15:04
Surprise deadline day reports are linking the Blues with an unlikely move for Gillingham midfielder Bradley Dack.
According to The Sun, Town have made a £2 million approach for the 22-year-old, who has scored 14 goals from midfield for the Gills in League One this season and has also been mentioned in connection with Bristol City and Reading.
Later reports claim that offer has been rejected, however, Town are highly unlikely to have been willing to pay out a fee of anything approaching that size.
Speaking at lunchtime, Blues boss Mick McCarthy reiterated that he was happy with his squad and had no plans to make any additions before tonight’s 11pm deadline, although he did say he had made some enquiries regarding "younger" players and said they were "non-starters really in terms of the money", which may be the source of the Dack claims.
Greenwich-born Dack played youth football with Charlton before moving to the Kent side’s youth set-up. He spent time on loan with Braintree in 2013 and is contracted to the Gills until 2018.

Go on Mick son, it's time to throw the dice and give it a gamble.

I would love this to be true but if we spend £2m on one player let alone 11 players this window, Ill eat my hat and any other hat you want to send to me.

I'd be amazed - not sure what at more, Ipswich spending a 7 figure sum, or McCarthy's bluffing ability, but i'd be amazed.
Personally can't see it happening, but we'll see. We'll see.

Ha Ha Ha...
We could get Roofe AND Moncur for that.

2 stories in 15 mins that just contradict each other. An area where we really do need more goals and creativity from. In my opinion Douglas should not be starting anyway so if this happened surely he would get a central midfield role ahead of him. I very much hope this goes through so we will see what happens.

Well it's just nice to see us linked with a highly rated young goalscoring midfielder. Just the type of player we need but really can't see Evans paying that amount of money, even if it was for Lionel Messi.

The thing about MM is he's a bloody liar lol, hope this is true :)
|OwainG1992 added 15:16 - Feb 1|
Be very happy if it is true!
|GeorgeITFC24 added 15:16 - Feb 1|
According to HITC it's been rejected. Gillingham want £5 million for him
|essexboy added 15:19 - Feb 1|
Very interesting,let's hope it's true.No smoke without fire,but I just wonder where this came from.!!
|Fatboy added 15:20 - Feb 1|
I didn't read past the bit that said, "According to The Sun...".
|Wallingford_Boy added 15:21 - Feb 1|
Why do people want it to be true?
Is he any good?
He sure ain't Kemar Roofe, thats for certain!
|aardvaark added 15:25 - Feb 1|
Now Roofe WOULD be a good signing....seen him a lot at Oxford...the boy's class...
|scott91itfc added 15:28 - Feb 1|
Wallingford Boy- No he is much better, 14 goals and 21 assists from midfield in League 1 (Gillingham are 2nd). he is far superior to Roofe......
|Lightningboy added 15:39 - Feb 1|
Sadly,No chance...hope i'm proven wrong.
|PhilTWTD added 15:48 - Feb 1|
Not sure how contradictory, think this is a very unlikely link and thought I'd made that clear!
|halsteadblue added 16:03 - Feb 1|
Is it April the 1st today...............
|Marcus added 16:05 - Feb 1|
It's a case of being misheard. MM is trying to buy a Mark Muphy ugly duck!
|BossMan added 16:10 - Feb 1|
Since Clegg left there haven't been too many of our dealings reported in the press before they are confirmed by the club which has been a real improvement in the running of the club so be surprised if this was true.
|phillo added 16:12 - Feb 1|
Does Mick actually know what's going on re players ......
AM "no additions, happy with what I've got" .....
PM "hang on here's a £2m signing ....where did he come from" ... "well done board you got me again - like when Digby signed" 😊 😊
|JustSpivvyChops added 16:14 - Feb 1|
There's more chance of being eaten by an alien in your local M&S.........................
|Taricco_Fan added 16:37 - Feb 1|
Excellent player, just what we need...which is exactly why it won't happen. Oh, and the small matter of us not spending £200k let alone £2m.
|DaneITFC added 16:41 - Feb 1|
£2 million? Would be a good signing but no chance we'd spent anywhere near 20k let alone 2m.
|footyblue added 16:56 - Feb 1|
Far too forward thinking and too young we will sign Thomas instead which sums up Towns ambition
