No Money For Roeder!

Last updated : 30 January 2007 By Footy Mad - Editor

Glenn Roeder is hoping to sign Oguchi Onyewu on LOAN, just as he is in talks with Frederic Piquionne. But Saint-Etienne officials have made it simple for Freddy Shepherd to understand ...  the 28-year-old will NOT be allowed to move on loan without a commitment to a £5m summer transfer.

As for the other Roeder target, Ryan Babel, the pressure finally got to Roeder when asked if he had money to spend on the Ajax player.

Roeder: "I hear we have offered £5m for Ryan Babal. Trust me ... that is pie-in-the-sky!

"I have tried to get Piquionne on loan but his club is reluctant to commit to a deal unless we arrange a permanent deal for the summer."

In other words ... no money for transfers.
