Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe

Recommended Posts

Hadn''t heard of him till today, but looks a good player especially for the championship. 5 caps for Belgium so can''t be bad. Move to Everton collapsed due to paperwork in 2012, and Lambert wanted him for £5m earlier this year before Lerner''s purse closed. From what I can tell, he''s an athletic midfielder who players centrally or wide right and has a bit of an eye for a goal. Comes highly recommended by Vincent kompany too! Anyone got anything else to add?

Spartacus - so that means they''re all bad now does it? Anyway, despite Fer''s disappointing premiership season, if he''d have wanted to play this championship season he''d probably have been the best midfielder in the league. If Odjidja-Ofoe is as good as Fer then I''ll be happy.

To be honest, I''ve never heard of him, but a quick Google of his name brings up an article from the time he was going to join Everton with a glowing recommendation from Vincent Kompany.

Mustard - that YouTube video is bizarre! Some nice goals but then they also include some odd moments which aren''t really highlights at all.. Like the final one where he skies a shot way over the bar! Looks a good player though, and confident to shoot it seems!

Spartacus - just because he''s from the country *next* to the country Fer is from? Or because he''s a foreign midfielder? Would you be more excited if he was English? I don''t think Fer was as bad as you seem to think anyway. Had hughton played him properly - I.e. further forward and with no defensive duties, he''d have done much better. All his best moments were offensive, so it makes sense.

Reports this morning of Brugge midfielder Vadis Odidja-Ofoe on the brink of joining Norwich. Excellent player. Good investment of Fer money

Excellent stuff if true, definitely a message of intent. We dearly need a powerful midfielder to sure things up!

And what happens if Bradders or Tettey get suspended or injured. Plus two defensive midfielders don''t give us a lot of formation options

Aj you are spot on. I am sure many of us have got in heated debates with friends over do we need to add to our squad.

For me the answer is yes, we have seen the squad, with exception of the newbies put in lacklustre uninspiring performances for too long and that can become the norm. New blood freshens that up. I want our bench to be the strongest in the league. Depth is critical and a signing like this is greatly needed.

If we go up this year we do not want to have just one transfer window buying players capable of keeping us up. I want us to look at players now that can develop into prem players, or the better champ players so in January we can so the same and not have to rush in that window.

Really hope Adams pulls in a few more players :)

Was there any further mention of this guy at the game (eg anyone claiming to be in the know)? - it seems to have been overtaken by the great events elsewhere!
