Again, everyone remain calm, none of this information is being presented to you as fact, hence the “Rumor Mill” tag.
First off, lets start with some clarification. It now appears that one of the two “Americans” from the Houston Dynamo who have been on trial in Dingwall is actually- GASP!- a Canadian!! Specifically, Canadian international defender Andre Hainault. Hainault “ticks all of the boxes” in terms of what kind of player the club has been after since the beginning of the season: tall (6’2″), still in the prime of his career (26), eligible (a current Canadian international who has already played in Europe- in this case in the Czech Republic), etc.. As far as how I “rate” Hainault, I think his best attribute- he’s never been afraid to get “stuck in,” may be his greatest problem as welll- he can tend to be a bit naive with some of his challenges and that sometimes puts him in danger of picking up senseless bookings. The only other problem with signing the red-headed Hainault is that Scott Boyd already has the best nickname- the Ginger Pele!
Second, the rumors about former Tromsø IL left back Hans Åge Yndestad joining the club continue to persist and as far as I can tell from Google translated Norwegian news stories and statements by his agent, they seem to be getting more specific. Namely, that he wants to sign with County and that he is already on his way to/in Scotland in an attempt to make that happen. Obviously, the club has not said anything regarding the player.
Finally, there may be a German (or a player from a German club) in the mix. How’s that for vague?
