Tunnicliffe Still on Town Radar
Saturday, 1st Jul 2017 14:27
Former loanee Ryan Tunnicliffe remains on Town’s radar TWTD understands, despite Tom Adeyemi joining the Blues on a free transfer yesterday.
As reported a fortnight ago, the Blues are one of a number of clubs keen on the 24-year-old, who is a free agent following his release by Fulham.
Tunnicliffe previously spent time on loan with the Blues in the first half of the 2013/14 season when with Manchester United, making 24 starts and five sub appearances without scoring.
The Heywood-born midfielder, who we understand would be keen on a permanent move to the Blues having enjoyed his time at Portman Road, was due to stay with Town for the whole season but was sold to Fulham in the January window.
Tunnicliffe’s last game for the Cottagers was in October last year and he joined Wigan for his second loan spell with the Latics in January, making eight starts and two sub appearances, scoring once.
When with United - for whom he made only two League Cup sub appearances - the former England U16 and U17 international was also on loan at Peterborough and Barnsley, while his first stint with Wigan came at the end of 2013/14 shortly after joining Fulham and he spent the first half of the following campaign at Blackburn.
Elsewhere, League One Charlton are reported to have joined the chase for free agent former Southampton winger Lloyd Isgrove.
Last month, TWTD revealed that the Blues and the 24-year-old’s former loan side Barnsley were both keen on the Wales international.
The Addicks currently have former Town winger Cameron Stewart, who was released by the Blues last summer, on trial.
Town are expected to confirm the season-long loan signing of 20-year-old Manchester City winger Bersant Celina over the weekend in time for the now traditional Irish pre-season training camp at the Carton House Hotel in Co Kildare.
However, we understand the Blues are keen to add another new wide player to the squad.

A Crossroads by TBT
Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
