Town Again Linked With Tilt Bid
Friday, 6th Jul 2018 17:12

Town are again reported to have made an offer for Blackpool central defender Curtis Tilt.

The Blues were previously said to have made a bid for the 26-year-old a fortnight ago and now Sky Sports are reporting what’s presumably a renewed approach.

At the time of the first link, Town were said to be hoping to steal a march on a number of other clubs also keen on Tilt, including Reading, QPR and Portsmouth.

Walsall-born Tilt played in non-league for Halesowen Town, Hednesford Town, AFC Telford Town, Wrexham and Forest Green Rovers (loan) before joining the Tangerines last summer. He made 45 starts for the League One side in 2017/18, scoring once.

Another senior centre-half is very much on Paul Hurst’s summer wish-list with Adam Webster having departed for Bristol City and Tilt would appear to be very much the favourite to replace the former Pompey man in the Blues' backline.

I believe that this is a deal, that if we are in fact interested, will get done. This summer has given me a renewed sense of optimism is ME, and I’ve already been impressed with Paul Hurst. Very excited for the future under the new regime.

I believe there is every chance he could be a quicker, stronger Webster. Won players, fans and media player of the season at Blackpool. Left footed. Reads the game superbly. Would be a great partner for Chambers. Tilt looks like what Bramble was supposed to be, minus the errors. Would happily pay £1m for him which is what Blackpool seemingly want. Please get this done!

Seems like the new regime is getting Marcus focussed on what needs doing on and off the field(filling in the link from fitness coach to physio's which has not happened before but had been requested has to be a good thing for a start) it would appear our owner now has enthusiasm for the cause instead of falling asleep during previous boring monologues on the phone.

Let's get this deal wrapped up.

This is the lad we need to get signed

Very good player and would be a good addition. One of two new CBS we need this Summer in my opinion. At one point we had Berra, Smith, Webster and Chambers. Now, only Chambers as the only recognised senior CB.

PortmanTerrorist added 18:55 - Jul 6
Yes. Either Tilt or bring Matt Clarke back. Both would cost the same-ish and am convinced both would double in value overnight in the Championship. No brainer....if they want to come f course. Go to it PH/ME

I didn’t get to see one game of Blackpool’s last season, unlike it seems some

runningout Not got google then? You don't clear up at your clubs awards night without being (at least) a cut above the rest.

StokeHigh97 added 21:25 - Jul 6
Going by the clip: good pace, composed in possession, decent touch, strong & mobile: it looks like Hurst is targeting players who have a non-league background as it has been very successful process for him at Grimsby & Shrewsbury: if he signs looks a good addition

Ipswichbusiness added 21:43 - Jul 6
I very much agree with jas0999.

Successful teams are built on a sound defence.

BluePatriot added 22:50 - Jul 6
Yeah we are a selling club
and buying aload of nobodies
Another crap season to look forward to
Mick where are yooouuuuu !!!!!

busterjames1 added 23:02 - Jul 6
Reminds me of Big Al Hunter the way he plays it out and nice and calm on the ball !

Dog added 15:15 - Jul 7
Looks a competent defender who is pacy , calm and assured.

Hopefully ME will invest in the squad and not follow the blackpool way of freebies and cast offs. If he doesn't then the ground might be as empty as Blackpool's.

Less than 4 weeks to end of transfer window!!!.

warno added 00:54 - Jul 8
Looks good in the clips and entertaining too. The last CB we had doing runs like that was Hermann H.

ITFCsince73 added 14:06 - Jul 8
Looks like the total opposite of the 1 CB we have.

ITFCsince73 added 14:08 - Jul 8
Ipswich business. Agree, that rules out Chambo then...

BlueBlood90 added 09:00 - Jul 9
I'd imagine we'll probably end up meeting them half way at around the £750k mark if Hurst thinks he's worth it. The clock is ticking so hopefully we can start getting these lads signed up and bedded in before August.
