Lincoln City have announced the signing of Zack Elbouzedi from Waterford FC on a long-term contract.
Disappointing as he would have been a great signing.
Agreed! Would have been a super signing and IMO what we needed on the wing to compliment Duffy when playing in Europe; Two exciting attacking wingers.

I wonder who it is that Perth and Co are currently working on as 'the icing on the cake'

Would you not call Daniel Kelly an exciting winger?

I certainly would. However, as much as I like Kelly I dont think he is at Elbouzedi's level (yet)

So you think a 23 year old Kelly has the potential to improve and be better than a 21 year old Elbouzedi?

Not think Elbpouzedi is gonna improve that much, or Kelly gonna be a top top player?

Kelly has the potential to be a better player if given a run of games etc he will improve.

Also, Elbouzedi has the potential to improve given he has moved from Waterford to League 1.

IMO id be more excited about possibly signing Elbouzedi than Kelly if they were both linked to Dundalk at the same time.

From seeing Elbouzedi playing for the U-21's I think he would be a better player in European games as opposed to Kelly

It's a very difficult to compare Elbouzedi with Daniel Kelly, but it is fair to say that having both players along with Michael Duffy in the squad to compete for two places would have be exciting.

Daniel Kelly had an outstanding season and may well improve further in the season ahead, but more competition & rotation options are needed especially if Jamie McGrath does not resign

We should just sign all the players. 11 on the pitch, another 11 to compete for places on the bench, and a few more for shits and giggles.

Yep. We can’t be complaining on one thread about burning through cash and want to sign every good player on another one.
Not signing him at least shows that we probably have a ceiling to the amount of cash we offer.

Or maybe he believes across channel is a better option.

The reality is, even the likes of Lincoln City where Elbouzedi has decided to progress his career, is a better attraction than the likes of the top clubs in Irish football.
The facilities, the level of professionalism on and off the park is evidently better..... sad but true.

Any word on McGrath? VP was to have had talks with him last week I read somewhere. Does he have to wait for the January transfer window to open if he wants to go to England?

The fact you don't see him in any of the training pics and there had been no news on him signing a new contract would suggest to me that he won't be here again next season..

He can't play for any UK club until the January registration window, but he could sign a deal at any stage before then.

No news is good news

I've heard he could be staying but will only sign a 1 year contract but Dundalk want him to sign for longer.
