There have been calls for another striker this window, but it seems the next one through the door as the transfer deadline looms will be a midfielder!

The player in question is Jordan Mutch, who is reportedly set to join from Premier League side Crystal Palace on loan, if Sky Sports are to be believed. The 25-year old has been considered surplus to requirements at Selhurst Park, failing to impress new boss Sam Allardyce.

Mutch, who joined from QPR in 2014, made twenty appearances in the Premier League last season, but has only managed four this term. It seems it is a provisional loan deal, with the possibility of it becoming permanent, but it is unknown whether that stands if we are promoted or not.

On paper it is a good signing to bolster options in the midfield, especially with Quinny still on the treatment table, but you would hope the signing of a striker will be imminent too! Presuming the Mutch deal goes through, a striker would make another fantastic window.
