Window watch: Edin Dzeko; Robbie Keane; Eidur Gudjohnsen
Monday 03 January 2011
What a desperate shame for Edin Dzeko to be absent from Wolfsburg's winter-break training camp in Marbella. According to the club, he missed his flight from Bosnia due to fog, which probably means he's holed up in Garry Cook's Prestbury mansion.
Harry Redknapp, meanwhile, has realised something that struck Rafael Benitez very clearly: that no side with Robbie Keane in can mount a plausible title challenge. Newcastle and Wolves have no such qualms. Keane could share a taxi fare with David Bentley, whose space on the Spurs bench may well be taken by a similarly initialled English winger.
Having failed to push Jon Walters out of the side, Eidur Gudjohnsen could be on his way out of Stoke. There has been a space for a well-rounded football genius at Swansea ever since Lee Trundle joined Neath in the summer. The former Chelsea and Barcelona man would fit perfectly in with Brendan Rodgers' promotion chasers.
