Nothing of new rumours but it can't be to far off. Excited to see who we get in and who goes.

Aye 100% we can, discussion and and rumours.

I’ll just update the first post with the ones that actually happen.

Gullan, contract expires at the end of the season and hasn't made the match day squad for sometime including for both Maloney games.
Accordingly I suspect he has a team lined up for January.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if we're trying to tap up Man City for some EDS players, given Caldwell's last job. Not sure if we'd be in the running or if they're even looking to loan him out, but one name I'd be looking out for is Oscar Bobb - quick, tricky left winger, made a good start to his first season at U23 level. Feel like he'd fit the style Maloney seems to be targeting, and Murphy's probably not a starter at this point...

Wonder if Lawrence Shankland will be on our radar either in January or more likely next summer ?
Playing in the Belgian league now so Maloney will have seen him play recently as well.
Not totally proven at the top level in Scotland, I think he is a natural goalscorer though and he could be one for next year, especially if and when Nisbet goes.

I kind of hope we don’t, no sure he’s all that good. I’m sure someone will point out his stats last season but that was last season, and stats don’t tell the whole story.

I would rather we didn’t target players from struggling teams. I’d rather we signed players used to winning, who can come in and cause our existing players to up their games.

Type of player that would do well here.
But im not sure it helps balance the squad, I'd maybe give him a miss tbh.

That's all relative though, surely? Players from Kelty Hearts or Arbroath are used to winning. I cant imagine they are better suited to moving to Hibs than the best player from St Mirren?

Boy is a regular starter for ROI so reckon he is playing in a team way below where he should be. I’d definitely take him

St Mirren are in the Premiership, no interested in Kelty Hearts. They can’t buy a win, do we want players used to losing? I don’t.

International player doesn’t mean they’re a good player IMO

I'm hoping for a few new names in the transfer/signing mix.
SM may have contacts in many places.
Other than Perth and Paisley at least.

Not a rumour, but Shaun says he will be getting involved in the window


And anyone who wants to pursue options elsewhere will be supported to do that.

In other news, we're receiving 250k from UEFA along with everyone else who was in the league last season.
So no cash for those at Tynefritzl

If we do nothing else in the January window we must sign a centre half. Daz has given his all but is now well done and Ryan will be sitting in the stand for the next 3 games so time is of the essence.
I don't think there are many folk think we should sign McCart now and Findlay is on £5k a week in Portland so won't want to come back for much less.
Any suggestions of alternative centre halves, including loans who are available, good enough and within Hibs budget?

Agree a central defender is a must.
Still think McCart might still be on our radar, although he has had a poor season so far in a team which has badly under performed. He is also left sided so would be competition for Hanlon rather than Porteous.

I think Findlay would be a good signing, we could do with some height and presence in that back three. He’s hardly played over there so I think he could be tempted back to Scotland.

McCart as I said elsewhere I’m not keen on, never been impressed when I’ve seen him play against us but if Hibs deem him a good option then fair enough. Maybe Maloney and co will be able to develop him.

Kerr has hardly kicked a ball since his move to Wigan, maybe they could be tempted to cut their loses and he could be tempted back up the road if Hibs are willing to “pony up”.
