My mate who's a Pies fan just messaged me saying this as well. Can't see announced anywhere tho.
Got a link/source?
Speaking to a few Salford fans yesterday who claim Bibby is better. Forgive me if I'm in the minority here but surely a full England international is a better player than a (undoubtedly talented) youngster who has failed to nail down a regular starting centre spot in a struggling Salford side? I like Bibby, he's got good hands and he knows how to put his winger away but he's lacking a yard of pace for me and he's still prone to making a few judgements when flying out of the line.
Just hope that Jacko isn't being used as a makeweight in any deal with Wigan tho.🙏
Good solid signing. He’s not had the best year but no reason to think it is anything but a blip (he’s had a rough year off the field). I think Bibby may have more potential, but right now I have to say Sarginson is an upgrade and proven at this level (even though I’m gutted Bibby is off).
"Sarginson is an upgrade and proven at this level" : I'd agree and a recent move at Wigan shows he is a good shoe-in at full back if needed. He is very much a left centre which fits. However he does have a reputation for not passing... so he'll fit in.
Journos on Twitter seem to think Luke Yates is a done deal
I’m not trying to pour cold water on this signing at all - I’d be happy with it as he’s a very good player- but we are not exactly short of undersized workhorse forwards are we? I’d hope we’d balance this out by signing Pauli Pauli - I’d be very happy then.
