Blues Linked With Scunthorpe Striker
Friday, 31st Jan 2020 13:02
Town are reported to be one of a number of clubs eyeing a deadline day move for Scunthorpe striker Kevin van Veen.
According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, the Blues, Sunderland and Blackpool are all keen on the 28-year-old.
The 6ft 1in tall Eindhoven-born frontman is contracted to the Iron, who parted company with ex-Town boss Paul Hurst earlier in the week, until 2021 meaning he would cost a fee.
Speaking earlier today, Town boss Paul Lambert played down the chances of adding to his squad before tonight’s 11pm deadline having found the “proven” loan targets he was after too expensive to sign and it would be a big surprise if the Blues were looking to bring in the Dutchman.
Van Veen, who has also played for Northampton since moving into English football, has scored 14 times this season.
The Dutch frontman was asked by Scunthorpe fans about the situation on Facebook and responded that there is some interest in him - although from where he didn't specify - but that they shouldn't be too concerned.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
