26 July 2007 : Williams Deal Still On
Yeovil Town's bid to sign winger Marvin Williams still appears to be on, despite the deal having taken much longer than anticipated. On Saturday, manager Russell Slade said he hoped to announce the signing of a winger - widely expected to be the Millwall wide-man - by Monday or Tuesday.

Despite several days having passed, and rumours of a technical hitch in the proceedings, this morning's Western Daily Press report that the deal is still expected to go ahead later this week. They report that a two year deal is on the table for the 19 year old.

What is of amusement is speculation concerning how much the player is likely to cost Yeovil. An unofficial Millwall website last weekend pegged the deal as costing Yeovil 200,000 pounds - a tag that caused this site much merriment and howls of derision. This week's Western Daily Press has gradually brought the price down to a more realistic level. Last Saturday's paper reported a fee of 75,000, but by Monday, that figure had come down to 50,000 plus add-ons. Now today's paper suggests that the deal will be a free transfer, with the relevant add-ons potentially adding on the aforementioned 50,000 provided Williams makes enough appearances for the club.

Perhaps if Russell stretches out the deal a few more days, we could see Millwall owing Yeovil Town money for the transfer?
