No Blues Interest in Scarlett or Tucker
Thursday, 26th May 2022 11:52

TWTD understands there is no truth in reported Town interest in Tottenham youngster Dane Scarlett or Gillingham defender Jack Tucker.

The Sun reported this morning that Blues are tracking 18-year-old striker Scarlett, who is expected to be sent out on loan during 2022/23 with Preston and a number of other Championship sides also said to be keen.

However, we understand Scarlett, who signed a new contract earlier in the week, tying him to Spurs until 2026, is not a player the Blues are looking at.

Scarlett came through the academy ranks at White Hart Lane where Blues boss Kieran McKenna was U18s coach prior to his spell at Manchester United, which may well be the reason for the link with Town.

Meanwhile, suggestions that Gillingham centre-half Tucker is a player that the Blues are eyeing are similarly wide of the mark.

The 22-year-old is expected to leave Gillingham this summer with Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth, Hull City and Hibernian all rumoured to be interested.

The claim of Town interest appears to have initially appeared on a spurious transfer speculation Twitter account earlier in the week and spread from there.

Until we actually sign somebody I take all gossip with a pinch of salt.Never read into press rubbish.I’m sure the club have everything under control and therefore won’t issue any statement until all signings are finalised.

Think its 10th June when Town can approach other teams players so lets see what happens after that. I trust McKenna and Ashton to get us players to get out of this league.

Tw@tter is now full of "in the know" transfer accounts.
Which are clear bullcrap.
The one that got the Jack tucker rumours going was a moron just posting Ipswich stuff it seems.
We'll know about signings when they get announced or Phil and Co give us the info.

Centre half is not a position that needs strengthening and any additions to this department would surely be a waste of money.

Always a chance one of ours will be sold for a profit ie Cameron Burgess, replaced by Elkan , just an idol thought, we all know what we need 3 forwards 2 midfielders 1 left footed Wes Burns

Surely the manager is in the best position to decide what positions need strengthening.Just saying.

Centre back isn’t a position we lack in and unless that spurs kid is amazing not sure we’d be loaning an 18 year old we couldn’t afford to buy if he did well… 2026 is a long contract so they must rate him for the future.
