Blues centre-half Toto Nsiala is being linked with a move to Fleetwood Town.

According to The Sun, the Cod Army, currently 19th in League One, are working on a deal which would see Nsiala join them on loan.

The 29-year-old is out of contract in the summer, Town having taken up a one-year option on his previous deal in May, and his departure would come as no surprise.

The DR Congo international was signed in the summer of 2018 by Paul Hurst from his former club Shrewsbury.

Nsiala, who spent a spell on loan at Bolton in the second half of 2019/20, has made 71 starts and six sub appearances for Town, scoring once.

Makes sense if we want to bring in another CB. Looks like Toto has become 5th choice CB from being 2nd choice under Cook. Early days, but McKenna looks like he wants his CB’s to be comfortable on the ball. Not Toto’s strength.

Yep, if you want a CB that puts his body on the line by throwing your body in the way and heading away numerous balls then Toto is your man, wanting him to play the KM way is probably never gonna happen.

To be fair to Toto he’s cut out his red cards and giving away penalties. Doesn’t look the liability he used to be.

Just been confirmed. He’s going to Fleetwood permanently.

Good luck Toto… he’s a really decent bloke actually. And he’ll get game time there 👍

I think it's a good move for both him and the club he's a good bloke wish him well.

Must be a CB coming in now surely? We only have four players for 3 positions if we are to stick with 3 at the back.

That is not a confirmation, he has not gone yet.
Already been said he is not going to play the Mckenna way. He should move on for his own career.

Well it’s as near as done … so perhaps you’re just nit-picking a bit here ?

Toto was already gone after he had that confrontation with the fans.

Glad he has gone, free up some wages for a replacement.

I know we all have our own opinions and differing views, but i personally find the use of "glad" as a harsh reflection. Yes, agreed he always had an error or sending off in his game and probably doesn't fit the KM mould going forward, however at times he has been the standout defender putting blocks and tackles in (where others wouldn't) as though his life depends on it. Of course, hopefully, we can and no doubt will get a better defender in, but i personally thank him for what he has done

"Glad" is used as it says in the rest of the post , it frees up wages for a possible replacement. Not in the way you are reading it.

There’s a bit of a rumour starting up that we might be getting a midfielder from Walsall . Mark Kinsella’s son….Liam Kinsella… time will tell I guess …

Seems quite odd if true. We aren’t short of midfielders and he is someone from the league below who isn’t even a hot young prospect or such.

QPR must have faith in their abilities if they don't wish Bonne back. They're involved in a play-off chance in the league above, can only imagine they're content with the forwards they now possess and see no need for his return.

Good news for us, he's not been the same proficiency as once before but while the mathematical chance of promotion remains and other forwards here can contribute, all things are possible. It just requires eradication of yesterdays score or (collective) effort.
