I thought he was a poser at Leeds, more concerned about his flowing locks than defending; and very pedestrian at Bramall Lane.
But hey ... what the hell do I know?
Mackem boss Steve Bruce rates him highly, and (according to today's rags) is hoping to succeed where Newcastle failed in luring him away from Sheffield United.
The 26-year-old defender was one of Hughton's 'Top Three' transfer targets for this transfer window but Kilgallon's agent put the mockers on any deal, saying his client had decided to stay at Bramall lane.
Kilgallon is valued at around £1.75million by the Blades, but Hughton said today he would not be in the race to sign him.
