Sky Sports are reporting that Galloway wants to return to the club. Seeing as Tymon's signing appears to be imminent, he'd be a good centre half option; that's where he played a lot for Everton's academy. I'd love him back and he's one of the most talented young players that we've had at the club bar a certain Dele Alli.

I’ll repeat what I said elsewhere. Is he the experienced leader we are saying we need at centre-back?
Are we not looking at him through MK Academy tinted spectacles?

Entirely possible. He was very good at Everton initially though, their fans rated him very highly. Then a failed loan to West Brom (although I highly doubt he's a Pulis player) and what seems to have been a poor season at Sunderland mean that his career seems to be going downhill. I think he'd be worth a shot. But you're right, perhaps a more experienced defender is what we need, although I'm not sure how many of those are available.

Not quite sure if he’s the answer short term, but then again if anybody can revive his career it’s going to be Dan

If the boy is one with the mentality of “I don’t care what League I’m in as long as I’m playing football” then that says a lot about his mentality. For good or for bad he realises his career has stalled and he isn’t going around for a Premier loan thinking he’s better than he currently is. I think he’s better than us, mind, so would be a coup.

It would be AMAZING if we got him.

He’s a real talent and the fact that he wants to leave a huge club to come to a struggling league 1 team is amazing News. If anyone has expectations of getting someone better than Galoway in this window then they are dreaming

Everton was at left back. Does he have any league experience at centreback?

Let's hope not. We love our players to play in positions they've never played in before. It's the MK Way 8-)

Valid comments, and if he was coming in at LB I'd agree. But having just signed Tymon, it looks like Galloway will play CB. And I think we could have got a more experience CB on loan, and one who's a better leader. Can't Galloway also play CM? I wonder if he'll play there with Cisse continuing at CB.

would be great to have him back. as far as centre-back goes, i wasn’t there on saturday but based on the highlights all three players we put there produced an absolute clanger, so why not.
