Big, young Stoke defender. Alan Nixon is crediting us with an interest alongside Burnley, Arsenal and United.

I know nothing about him but do think these are the types of signings (young talented Championship players) that we should be targeting.

Neither do I but Alan Nixon is hardly a paragon of reliability

Collins is a tall lad well 'North' of 6 feet.Stoke signed him from Republic of Ireland club, Cherry Orchard whose former players include Paddy McCarthy and Tony Scully.

I have seen Collins play for Stoke at both right-back and in a 3 man back line and the teenager looked comfortable and effective in both positions.

Fair point. It would make some sense though as we do desperately need some fresh legs in that defence.

Highly rated from what I have read about him. Could be just the sort of player we need but the estimated cost is £8m-£10m which is a lot for a young defender.

I wonder what happened to that Reading CH that Chelsea snaffled from under our noses and then went onto the Chelsea loan train (probably never to be seen again).

From the Stoke games Iíve seen on tv the season I thought both Collins and Souttar both had something to offer in different ways. Collins is the better of the two but Souttar is a big dominant throwback - brave and physical (like Terry Butcher - but obviously a long way off that level at the moment).
I donít think we should be held to ransom on either tho as slightly more experienced defenders may offer better value and less risk.
