Mackems to sign Toon flop

I really hope this is true.

Howard Wilkinson is reportedly keen on signing our old mate Jon Dahl Tomasson.

Despite having little money in the transfer kitty Wilko is preparing to use it all to sign AC Milan’s unsettled Dane.

Tomasson has unsurprisingly failed to make an impact at the San Siro, where he is behind Inzaghi, Shevchenko and Ronaldo in the pecking order, and is keen to move as soon as possible.

Jon did have a good start to the World Cup, until Denmark played England in the second round and he remembered that he is scared of English defenders who might tackle him.

Good luck to you with this one Wilko, Tomasson’s bound to get stuck in against division one defenders next season.
