This is still not officially confirmed yet, but if you want to have a laugh at me, go ahead. According to Chronicle Allardyce’s renowned backroom staff will work on Tozer, and the young defender will have to undergo a series of fitness and other tests before he actually signs.
With Everton and Portsmouth reporting to have the same interest for this 17 years-old full back who can play as left and central defender, Tozer being rated as the most talented prospect in this country.
Maybe yes, maybe not. I think the deal so far was only on the paper as a pre-contract not a permanent switch as the transfer windows still not open yet.
Big Sam speaks for the first time about the speculations on Chronicle today and mark him as obviously one for the future.
“And yes, there is a possibility Ben will be allowed to go out on loan. But first we want him to stay here for two or three weeks so that we can look and him and he can look at us.”
Ben Tozer has only played one handful of game for the Swindon Town first-team this season, and will not be considered for first-team action by Sam Allardyce. United gaffer still hopes to land Manchester United Wes Brown on loan deal next month.
