Kluivert Rumours Grow

Kluivert Rumours Grow

We never thought we'd hear this, and yes, it does still sound daft, but former Barcelona hitman Patrick Kluivert is the latest of a long list of names linked with Hillsborough.

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is desperate to add a new striker to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new season and in light of Steve Maclean's departure to Cardiff City.

And after missing out on Billy Sharp, Grzegorz Rasiak, and Kenwyne Jones, Laws is eager to add a big name to his squad, with Kluivert's name being mentioned and expected to arrive at Middleswood Road training ground some time this week.

The former Dutch international, 31, is currently playing in his home country with PSV Eindhoven but has failed to cement a first team spot down with the club, after moving there from a relatively unsuccessful spell at Valencia.

He's had a spell on English shores before with a short stint at Newcastle United, which saw him net six goals from 15 appearances for the Magpies, but he's best known for his time at Barcelona, Milan, and Ajax.

Watford striker Darius Henderson has also been linked with a move to S6 in the weekend papers, but that wouldn't be a 'big name' now Brian, would it?

MORE ON KLUIVERT COMING TO WEDNESDAY. His Wikipedia profile has already been changed to say current club: Sheff Wed. Wiki sometimes gets ahead of the news, a recent example being the death of wrestler Chris Benoit's wife. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Kluivert - Kluivert has actually been released by PSV and is available on a free. The Sheffield Star reports that a big name free agent could be on his way for a trial, so it's all pointing towards Kluivert.

It was on Wiki earlier this afternoon that his current club was "Sheff Wed" and that his ***** number was 9. Someone has obviously changed it since.

Moderator, your language filter blocked out the name of what football players wear on their back during a game (s-h-i-r-t) - a bit ridiculous I think you need to crank the forum settings down a little. It also classifies Billy Sharp's former club as a swear word.

Darius Henderson? He's worth my £400 ST renewal fee alone. I just bricked my pants with the excitement.
