I would assume it's a loan due to splashing cash on Gallagher. But I could be wrong.

Do we think Walton would be the No.1 if/when he signs or is that the one still to come?

Depending of who the experienced keeper is I'd expect Walton to be number 1. Didn't take as much notice of him last season but in League 1 he was probably the best keeper with Wigan ahead of Raya.

Good thing is he has experience in the Championship.

In 19 games for Burnley last season with Hart in goal they conceded 41 goals. He was a total disaster.

Complete turnaround in results as soon as Heaton replaced him.
At least it's not Hart ;)

Another rumour that we're also after Simon Eastwood in a return to the club.

I would rather just have Leutwiler start if we bring in Eastwood.

Really?

Eastwood has been pretty good at Oxford.

I'd rather we don't sign him at all and get in other goalkeepers unless it's Joe Hart.

Quality keeper, but would like to see one come on a permanent basis. Sound like a few more deals just about to wrap up too. We get the kid from City, and a RB we will be in good shape.

Wigan fans seem to think he’s far from the finished article, a bit error prone but has potential.

Charlie Adam has signed for Reading.

Sky Sports are reporting we've signed Walton on a season-long loan

Sure, but with 3-5 million pounds that allowed us to sign Gally. I'm not sold on the potential of Raya and if we can get like for like while pocketing a few million quid, why not? Not to mention Raya didn't want to be here any more, so move on.
