Transfer deadline day - 3 hours to go

Nothing on the official site as yet, but the Liverpool Daily Post are reporting that the Jo loan deal has been completed, and that he will train with Everton today.

I guess this is a win-win for us in that given Jo has fallen well down the pecking order as the season has progressed, he would be doing no more than warming the bench for us so. Given Everton's striking crisis, he should see some decent playing time so the hope is that he can discover some form and return a better player in the summer. And I suppose it does put him in the shop window if there are any clubs interested in signing him on a permanent basis.

The BBC's live tracker (at 13.05) are suggesting that the Santa Cruz deal is dead in the water, with Sky Sports News reporting we failed to match Rovers' valuation of £25 million. Interesting as I have maintained the deal would be completed. If Santa Cruz is not coming, are the club working other avenues?

vote it up!
