    Not sure how official this really is, but there were numerous sources linking us with a move for him at the end of the summer window. I believe it's been mentioned a few times on BT sport by Sutton, so there could be something in it.

    Don't really know a whole lot about him tbf. 35 year old CB, international experience with England. Whats the consensus, something to look at in January maybe? I'd prefer someone much younger, although his experience would be an asset.

    Too old now and not that good anyway I think.
    We don't want another Toure situation on our hands. We are trying to lower the age of the squad even further not increase it.

    He was a very decent CB 10yrs ago, but at 35 thats really not the type of player we should be looking at, especially in January, unless it really was only til the end of the season type deal.

    Yes, we need a CB, however, by the time January rolls around it's very probable that the best we could be realistically hoping for, is being still alive in the Europa League while still carrying on domestically.

    I understand we could b doin wi an extra CB as well as one with experience, but at 35 he's over the hill imo. Too old. I'd much rather give ajer game time to develop him than give a pension grabber time.

    Interesting. I'd take him tbh, if we could nail him down to a similar contract that Toure had.

    Very good defender, even at the age he's at. Considerably better than Clint hill who managed to do alright domestically for the zombies but not sure he'd have the same impact as toure did for us in Europe. Would be a bit pointless unless we make Europa league spot in the group's.

    At his peak he was top defender. Even up until last season, he was performing well above average in the EPL, even being selected for International duty.

    However, this season (admittedly in a small sample of games) he has started to look his age, and has been a part of an Everton defence that has conceded 7 goals in 2 games in the last 4 days.

    To be honest, he could probably still do a job against SPFL strikers, but I don't think that is what we need. We already have more than enough centre-backs who can do that. What we need is more young and talented players, who can perform in Europe.

    he made john stones a £50m defender by basically doing all the defending in that team so stones could roam forward and try and imitate rio ferdinand

    Nah just too old and he's had injury problems, we need someone with big experience like him but a few years younger so they can be a mainstay in the side for next few seasons.

    Jagielka would stroll it up here, similar to the way Kolo did but Kolo is a better player. His ability wouldn't make us much better in Europe but his experience and leadership would help.
