Ian Breckin - Transfer Listed

Ian Breckin - Transfer Listed

The shock news from the official site today, is that club captain Ian Breckin has been placed on the transfer list along with Hamza Bencherif.

Breckin has made 140 appearances for the Reds', since joining from Wigan in 2005. Although he has only made 8 starts this season, he was still officially the club captain, with Kelvin Wilson wearing the armband in his absence.

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Breckin, this leaves us woefully short in the centre of defence. Chambers and Lynch would be the automatic replacements if any problems arose, but let's be honest, they're not Championship quality.

I feel sorry for Bencherif, because from what little I did see of him, he looked a decent player. He never made the first team and spent part of last season on loan at Lincoln. He was also the translator for Guy Moussi, hopefully Hamza taught him enough English to order a pint.
