    Default Ben Whiteman

    Usually dodgy twitter accounts reporting we’ve had a £2m bid accepted for the donny midfielder

    If true, that'd be swift movement for the right type of player. Captain there at only 23, would be sweet to have some young leadership here in the middle.

    Would be very encouraging.

    Think Derby were in for him in Jan? So nabbing him may piss them off too. Bonus.

    Transfermarkt lists him as not missing a game through injury so far in his career also.

    RealRed and SSM were on about him in the transfer thread a couple of days ago.

    The kind of signing I'd like us to make from the lower leagues; young with potential to develop but not inexperienced, in a position we need to strengthen and him being a captain at such a young age must mean he is rated highly by the club both as a player and as a good character in the dressing room.

    Hopefully there's some truth to this rumour.

    Good pedigree, right profile, good size. Looks an excellent fit....Is he definitely linked with us?

    I would think so. Bit more dynamic, few more assists and goals too

    Described as a 'box to box' midfielder on Wikipedia.

    I'd rather we took a recommendation from our preferred agents and signed an unfit out-of-form midfielder from the Portuguese second division.

    Some quotes off one of their forums

    We'd be disappointed if he didn't have the ambition to test himself at a higher level as I'm sure most of us believe he's good enough to make a big mark at Championship level and, is definitely captain material at whichever club he chooses.
    I would tout him as the best technical midfielder in the division with a price tag of 6 Million
    Ben is no run-of-the-mill league one player, he’s a master of the position he plays. Is there anyone better in league 1? But, not only that, he’s our captain and leader and, like Copps, someone who the other players look up to. Take him out of the equation and we’re asking DM to perform wonders again, before we’ve even kicked a ball!
    Apparently Sheff Utd have a sell on clause with him (anywhere between 20-25%), someone believes he has a buyout of £1.85m, others believe it is a load of bull. But they do seem to rate him very highly on there.

    Too good to be true. "No significant weaknesses"!

    Is there another Ben Whiteman in hospital somewhere with a broken ankle who we fancy?

    At last, a player that Bazza can have on the back of his shirt.

    He's a brill player. Composed, really good technique, good size too. Has a touch of Kevin McDonald about him. I like him.

    The validity of those rumours from looking at twitter don't seem all that great.

    I'd e really happy with him, he just doesn't have the feel of someone we'd go for.

    Surely one with a fragile mind too.

    Wherever Fawaz’s scouting team are they will be on to this then.

    Sounds like the sort of target we should be pursuing.

    Which means we're probably not.

    Live in hope though.

    Don't worry we can change that.

    Would definitely take him. Played as a holding midfielder initially at Donny but played a bit higher this season, very good passer.

    Some good CM's in L1 as we should also be looking at Brannagan (Oxford). However, like Erik above - I have my doubts.
