‘We won at the weekend and never conceded, do we really need a defender?’

Someone out there has probably asked that, thankfully I have not heard them. Nevertheless, it would appear Neil Lennon is getting a stopper in, and it appears to be one Shane Patrick Michael Duffy.

If that isn’t a giveaway he will be joining the Gerry Adams Eleven, I don’t know what is!

I predict a season long deal will be confirmed by the club at some point tomorrow.

This means, what now for Kris Ajer, who has been linked with moves away and was even on the bench at the weekend, with Nir Bitton slotting in beside Jullien at Tannadice.

A Duffy loan deal was rumoured to cost between £2m - £4m, so I can’t see us SHELLING OUT that amount of green, only to have him kicking about on the subs bench.

Ajer will likely look around him, especially after the weekend, and think about a move elsewhere.

So, we’ll see what happens in the next 24/48 hours before that speculation goes into overdrive.
