Lee, Wooter and Klos

Last updated : 11 August 2003 By Michael Morris
Alan Lee has been well documented over the last 48 hours. We want him, he wants to come, Lennie has offered a fee less than Rotherham will accept, it's close but still in the balance. After the fairly uncomplimentary remarks from Millers boss and former City player Ronnie Moore I hope the matter is resolved soon either way so we can move on. I'm fed up of Moore slating City.

Nordin Wooter could be offered a short term deal. Wooter has been on trial at Cardiff and played a part in the defeat at Forest Green last week. He is short of match fitness but may have impressed Lawrence enough to earn a short term deal. Wooter came on as a 91st minute sub for Ronald de Boer in the 1996 European Cup final for Ajax. He played all of extra time. Ajax lost on penalties to Juventus. In that game Juve scored through Ravanelli, Ajax through Litmanen. Other names on the pitch included Kanu, Edgar Davids, Van der Saar, Deschamps, Vialli, Del Piero, de Boer and Kluivert amongst others. Of late he's been playing in Holland but has had Premiership experience with Watford appearing in 20 games in the top flight in the UK.

Polish international defender Tomasz Klos (right) is awaiting a work permit. He's training with City and was hoping to be able to make his debut against Orient tomorrow. As of 1700 hrs on Monday there is no confirmation that his work permit has been granted. It was originally rejected as he did not quite play the percentage of matches required last season to be able to earn the permit. Because he was close to the mark and an established international player it's thought the matter will be resolved on appeal. Once a permit is granted he will sign for Cardiff City. Klos, 30, is a very experienced international player, his former clubs include Auxerre and Kaiserslautern. Off the top of my head he will be the the first City player since Peter Zois to have the letter Z in his name. Unless of course, you know better.
