He doesn’t look like a big or notably strong player though

I’m pretty sure there will be at least one more incoming before the end of the month. 

None of us have any idea in the value of this signing until he’s played.

So just seen he’s had champions league and Europa league experience as well as 10 seasons of Bundesliga experience, 29 years old and he’s signed for 2.5 years. Initial fee of under 500k with add ons.

As others mentioned on different threads, Duda good signing, but most of us would have loved that to be permanent, but not to be. This one is a little strange unless Lietner, Steipermann are on their way, both not really good enough at premiership. 
 

It’s the age that I don’t understand, thought our model was for building on youth or buying better, not journeymen, to fill the squad......as said lots of experience so fingers crossed he’s better than we have!

The ship has sailed on worrying if players are good enough for the PL. Luckily for Leitner and Stiepermann they are more than good enough for the championship.

Yes no doubt, still don’t think we’ll see much of Leitner in a City shirt nor much of Steipermann now we have Duda.

Bit an odd one, apparently his agent was touting him to Middlesbrough.

I can only assume we're expecting somebody to depart, possibly Moritz Leitner?

The player was talking about how he didn't know if he fancied English weather so he's dodged a bullet giving MIddlesbrough a swerve 😀

Football manager suggests a player worth around 5 million who is championship standard. How accurate that is - anyone’s guess!! He seems to be a central midfielder who can play wide right as well 

Michael Bailey seems to think we've signed him for an initial £500,000 so it must be sale time in the Bundesliga

As much as I do hope we upgrade Steipermann before our assault on the Championship next season.... Duda is only here for 5 months.

I do worry that annoying Stiepermann by not playing him and playing a loan player for the rest of the season could be a bit short sighted. We will no doubt need him next season. Ditto Kenny.

Well very underwhelmed by that.I really would have thought a centre half was priority at the moment.Although at a possible cut price  500k for 2.5 year contract I don't think they were thinking any sell on price at the end of that

Can’t remember a signing that has posed so many questions before! He does have Champions and Europa league experience, plus he’s regularly played for the bigger Bundesliga sides so he must have something about him.

How do you know it isn’t?

Have I missed something? Is there a written rule that states we sign players in a certain order according to their positions? 

There’s approximately 3 weeks of the transfer window left 🤦🏻‍♂️

Tettey Trybull Amadou Vrancic McLean Leitner Rupp Steipermann Duda....seems slightly overloaded??

Possibly GJL, but it should be noted that he can play fullback too, and with Heise departing, we needed further cover there (bearing in mind that Byram can play either side)

Versatility usually means someone that's not good enough to nail down a set position ,how many top class versatile players do you know?

Didnt realise the window had closed! Done well to get him in time then all things considered.

Fans have this weird view that signing a player not in an area we want means we wont sign in the other positions. Bizarre mentality.

Why is it an odd signing? 

We haven't got a single attacking midfielder, including buendia, who is capable of competing at this level every week. 

An experienced addition is essential. They have now bought in two. 

And the window isn't shut. So the fact we could do with a striker and defender is irrelevant.

Yep yet again put your own slant on what was posted. Bizarre mentality as have i actually said the window had closed ? You seem to spend every waking hour on social media having a pop at anybody that does not conform to your take on things. I used the tense were instead of are but hey ho obviously i was totally unaware there is still over two weeks to go in this window according to you. You knew damn well what i was saying and the meaning but as usual you could not help yourself.

Maybe you would care to take to task the others on this thread who appear to be experiencing difficulty understanding this signing with our current defensive problems and lack of strikers ?

Has anyone ever warned you of the dangers to brown nosing? Always wear protection 👍

That was my thought Ron - Leitner on his way possibly??? 

Don't we now have to lose one overseas player, to keep within the quota? One out in Srbeny and now two in.

I’m the same- always open minded about signings but I don’t understand how a 29 year old utility player fits into that.
