Nsiala and Nolan Linked With Unlikely Late Exits
Monday, 1st Feb 2021 17:24
Centre-half Toto Nsiala and midfielder Jon Nolan have been linked with unlikely close-to-deadline moves away from the Blues.
PA is reporting that Fleetwood want to sign Nsiala on a permanent deal and Peterborough are keen on Nolan, while also repeating this morning’s claims that Kayden Jackson is a loan target for Huddersfield.
However, the Blues would almost certainly not allow Nsiala, who is also being mentioned in connection with Doncaster Rovers, to move on at such a late stage in the window with the 28-year-old having been a regular member of the squad this season, although we understand tentative interest was shown by both clubs.
Town are not in a position where they could allow a senior centre-half to depart with skipper Luke Chambers currently playing at right-back and James Wilson still on the way back after a knee injury. Nsiala himself is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Similarly, the Blues would be loath to allow 28-year-old Nolan to leave on loan, particularly to another club aiming for promotion such as Posh, with the midfielder having been a regular in the matchday 18 throughout manager Paul Lambert’s time at Portman Road.
Nolan and Nsiala joined Town in a joint deal from Shrewsbury in the summer of 2018. The defender is out of contract in the summer but with the Blues having an option for a further year, while the club have already activated the additional season on the midfielder's contract.
As previously reported, we understand Town have heard nothing from Huddersfield regarding Jackson.

For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
From Marcus's Side of the Fence by essexccc
Most of the thinking, including my own, around the possible sale of the club, has quite naturally focused on the possibilities from the club's and supporters' points of view.
