Could be Bakinson.. but he looks a bit younger and I don't think he's as tall as the guy in the pic

Bakinson is about 6’3

Ive never ever been in the know and never started any type of rumour  on this site, but I understand he has signed for us but were not allowed to announce until July 1st.

Weird response. We’re clearly after him, it’s possible he could be training with us before we announce his arrival - and it does look like him. Not sure that’s being ‘excited over absolutely nothing’ - seems a pretty reasonable thing to speculate.

Does it though?

If we didn't have Bakinson already then yes I would agree.

However, I would certainly say the reasonable response is to presume it is Bakinson, as he already plays for the club.

People love a conspiracy though and I don't mean to spoil the fun, so crack on...

Bakinson is a reasonably obscure player for us, it's not like he's someone you'd necessarily expect to be training with the first team and certainly isn't one who jumps to mind straight away.

Just thought it was a strange response, hardly a conspiracy - just a question.

Good work that man .

So, after all these years, we've found Lord Adelukan?

Monitors heart rate etc too.

I like the concept of this. If worn by spectators, could we could claim a refund if heart rate and blood pressure increased due to what was happening on the pitch?

Bakinson has a sticky outy Occipital bone, Adelukan does not so the training pic is the former. The end.

I like how you have both proper medical terminology (Occipital) and something I would use to describe my winky (sticky outy) in the same sentence

Well done Russel. Following your tip I asked the question and it was confirmed by someone at the club that he has signed. It’s a “secret” so it won’t be announced until Sunday at the earliest.

Of course it can be announced if it’s a pre-contract deal or bosman (if an older player). 

The club just hasn’t done it yet if he’s signed already.

No biggie, no BS conspiracy.

It could be that he's signed but they are still trying to agree a last minute fee instead of letting a tribunal decide.

Possibly can’t because they are due compensation?

If he's not signed a contract he's still their player so why would they let him train with us if he could theoretically get injured?

His contract is up tomorrow so perhaps he can sign a waiver to train elsewhere in his last week as he is not resigning there?

Compensation agreements can take a while to be settled. He could be playing for City in the league whilst it’s to be settled.

What the hell is wrong with him? He should be busting a gut to train with City. Obviously his heart's not really in the move!

True but meant maybe can’t be announced until contract was up unless compensation was reached before? Idk but does seem likely he has shreed to join if we offered them comp

I know it's been said but:

 

Quote

Scunthorpe United have today announced the signing of Andy Dales from non-league side Mickleover Sports.

The winger joins the Iron on a two-year deal as he joined up with the squad as they returned for pre-season training ahead of the new campaign.

A former Derby County trainee, he scored 23 goals last season and was selected in the Evostik NPL Premier Division team of the year for the 2017-18 campaign.

Dales was also called up to the England C team for a friendly against an Ireland Amateur XI in May.

The 23-year-old was invited to attend the V9 academy this month as Leicester and England striker Jamie Vardy looks to give non-league players the chance to break into league football and impressed Scunthorpe United scouts.

The transfer is subject to FA and EFL ratification.

Dales joins Duane Holmes, Josh Morris and Clayton Lewis as the only recognised wingers at the club, with Hakeeb Adelakun looking likely to leave the club once his contract expires on July 1.

So it looks as if they've already bought his replacement. I think the people who have said about July 1st are correct in that's when we'll be most likely to hear something, or at least before the club will have anything they can act on.

 Check what is the left ear of the person in each picture.... Same shape. 

 

Check the hair line.... Same shape. 

 

I'd say its fairly conclusive?

My Mrs used to a hairdresser and she reckons it's the same bloke. Although we have just had a baby boy who is 2 weeks old so she is tired lols. We named him Riley after Glynn. She didn't want him named after a footballer so super Bobby Taylor and walshy we're soon ruled out ;-)

You should have insisted he be named Jet. What a cool name that would be for a son.

Hasn’t bakinson got a beard in the pic of him with Lloyd Kelly and the other guy training doesn’t have a beard.

Bakinson has a bit of facial hair, mainly on the chin, but it'll be hard to make out from far away and with the colour to hair tone For reference, Adelakun has much more facial hair and more of a beard/goatee than Bakinson

Hope he is our player though. For me, very exciting player. Quite tall as well at 6’3 or so I have read. I’d be delighted to get this done. Could be similar to Cardiff signing Mendez Laing last season. Seemed an odd signing but really worked out for them
