What we know about our new signing

August 7, 2012

Well, for a start he likes to sing pop songs into broom handles, even when he doesn’t know the lyrics:

Okay, so that probably isn’t the same Daniel Ayala we’ve signed on loan today, but even if it was, that video would be slightly less embarrassing for the lad than this one:

To be fair, it was only a friendly and after the game Liverpool manager at the time Roy Hodgson commented on how well he played after the mistake.

Still, a Norwich fan visiting the forum has warned us: ‘Ayala is very comfortable on the ball and likes to play the ball out from the back. However, he is very slow and dives into tackles far too often instead of standing players up. This resulted in him giving away several penalties in his 10 appearances for us last season.

He added: ‘He has got plenty of potential and I really hope he does well but he is very injury prone!’

It sounds like Daniel has got a lot to prove during his spell with us. But if it doesn’t work out, at least we’ve still got Jamaal Lascelles!
