Good luck if you do get him, but i must say that its Haldane not Haladine. I hope he plays better for you than he ever did for us, he showed some good signs of promise just never expanded on that. Perhaps he would be happier with you, and with CC you really will come back up

That would be another good signing. I was sure he was on the verge of joining someone else? Maybe some of the Rovers fans will know?

I suspect he would have had meetings with other clubs. Sounds like a player with frightning pace. But one game good then goes missing in others. May be a drop down to the BSP will give him the chance to get consistent.

He would do great for you and his confidence will grow with the first team experience, Carruthers will also do very well at this level, in fact i think its fair to say they will excel
