Rob pleased with January transfer business

Chairman writes to Wanderers fans.

2 February 2021

Chairman Rob Couhig has written to Wanderers fans with a review of the club's dealings in the January transfer window.

I am grateful to the superb work that the team led by Andrew Howard, Pete Couhig, Gareth Ainsworth and Kelly Francis have done to strengthen the club not just for the remainder of the season but for coming seasons as well.

While maintaining our principal of financial sustainability, they were able to extend contracts and bring in needed reinforcements. I am confident that we have the right players that will allow us to successfully compete in the Championship this year and into the future.

We have added a striker in Admiral, brought home a midfielder in Nnamdi, and a defender in Jordan Obita. We extended Josh Knight’s loan, and Garath McCleary, Ryan Tafazolli, Curtis Thompson and David Wheeler’s contracts have been extended through next year and beyond.

We also turned down significant offers of cash for one of our players. While we will never hold back a player from personal advancement, we could not support what was at best a lateral move for the player. He is vital to our success this season.

Nick Freeman has a chance to play more matches and develop his game and we were pleased to help out a great club in Leyton Orient with a loan deal that suits all parties.

With the transfer window behind us, the coaches and players can concentrate on gaining the necessary points over the next 22 matches.
