Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Transfer Deadline Day Live!

Happy Transfer Deadline Day, lads! You can follow all the big moves throughout the day here at the LOB. The big news so far is that £29 million deal to move David De Gea from United to Real seems appears to have broken down. Will Twilight stay at Old Trafford? And where is his head at now?

I'll look for your comments throughout the day.

Chelsea have bought some bloke named Papy Djilobodji for £2.7 from Nantes. That sounds like Roman Abramovic's dry cleaning bill.

Everton said to have the paperwork in for Aaron Lennon who should be coming over in a permanent transfer. They do not get the #10 they sorely need, but they did manage to hang onto John Stones.

Good to hear from you, Someone. Yes - the Aaron Lennon deal is done - three year contract for £4 million. Good business for the Toffees, I'd say, but I've always had a soft spot for our former academy kid.

More deals rolling in at this hour:

Leicester have signed Nathan Dyer on a one-year loan from Swansea.

Bournemouth have got Joe Bennett in on loan from Villa.

And former Leeds legend Bradley Johnson has gone to Derby for a "club record fee."

And finally Sunderland have signed Yank winger DeAndre Yedlin in on loan from Spurs.

In Leeds news, we've signed Jordan Botaka, a 22-year old Congolese winger from Dutch club Excelsior. Not exactly Cristiano Ronaldo, but we'll take the boy.
