So long as we don't have to see Byram at LB in the PL.

Having never heard of or seeing this fella before. I'm pretty sure he was on the platform opposite platform 8 yesterday after the game. Its only after seeing the images of him today that i'm sure it was him.

Heathy competition. Welcome. Anyone know if he has been playing recently? Just wondering how match fit he would be moving forward to Chelsea away

Glad we've got this done. A week's worth of training with the rest of the lads to go along with his pre-season and shove him in at Chelsea. Dimi must be thrilled with this too having seen his buddy Cresswell go down, he now has someone else left-footed to forge a partnership with out there.

Welcome Arthur!

He looks like a very offensive LB (from what i've seen on youtube). I like the look of him. Hopefully he's fit and raring to go. Get sam back to RB.

You can tell the club is serious... we've gone from never spending on full backs to having spent 20 million in the last 3 seasons (if you consider Antonio one, which he is in Bilic's eyes now)

Welcome... great to have competition all over the park :thup:

We're gonna win the league...

Now changed to a 4 year deal from the 3 reported. Same how Cullen's loan was changed to a 5 month loan from the season long one reported first this morning. Bloke running our twitter account hasn't had his coffee yet.

Hope he's decent. Assume the Swedish lad would of cost more or Bilic didn't fancy him?

Excellent news! Welcome Arthur.

This being turned round so quickly after Santon failed a medical suggests to me the plan could well have been Masuaka + Santon.

If so, hopefully another decent-quality full-back who can potentially play both sides might just be on the way too? On loan at least. Or is that too much to hope for? :?
