City closing on mystery striker?

Last updated : 16 August 2007 By Michael Morris
He did not divulge the name of the player but said he was a striker who had played in the Premiership and elsewhere but not elsewhere in the UK.

It would be a permanent deal and not a loan.

The initial reaction of the supporters listening and those furiously posting on the Messageboard was that it could be Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

He has just failed to negotiate a move to Leicester, he's a player Ridsdale once sold for £12m and he fits the bill as far as being a Premiership and European player.

Hasselbaink's name has also cropped up in The Sun this morning linked to a move to Ninian Park. It's unlikely The Sun would have been listening to GTFM yesterday evening so they may have information from another source.
