There are strong rumours suggesting that Southend United have failed in a bid to loan transfer listed winger Kevin McLeod.

The deal was done just seconds before the 5pm deadline yesterday afternoon and the FA didn’t receive faxed confirmation before that time.

It’s yet to be confirmed as to whether the deadline was met or not, although it was expected to be confirmed by this morning.

Allowing a player to move to one of our main promotion rivals seems like a stupid thing to do although if the deal does go through (which is highly unlikely now) then it probably won’t allow him to play against us at the end of April.

A lot of people would disagree but i think he should definately be shown the exit door. He has the ability to play in the Championship but it’s not much good to us when he only shows his full potential every 3 or 4 months on average.

We must point out though that we can’t confirm this (just like any other site at the moment) as being anything more than just a rumour.

We’ll post up official news on the transfer as soon as we get it.
