Transfer round-up.

Former Blue Paulo Wanchope has caused a bit of a surprise by opting to sign for Qatari side Al Ghafar as opposed to returning to the Premiership with a move to Portsmouth. A nominal fee has secured the services of Wanchope, who had a troubled time at Malaga following his sale to the Spanish club from City last summer.
Wanchope believes he has achieved his ambition of playing in The Premiership and La Liga and now is set upon a new challenge.
Realistically, the only challenge Paulo will face out in Qatar will be how to spend all the dollars his new club will be shovelling his way. It's a strange decision as Wanchope is hardly calling time on his career as he is still (fairly) young. However, he was never the most predictable of characters on the pitch so let him sail off into the desert and the millions that await him.
Meanwhile, back at home Mikkel Bischoff has turned down a move to Cardiff after failing to agree personal terms on a move to Cardiff after the two clubs had agreed a fee. One appearance in three seasons does not suggest he has made a decent fist of his City career, but we are pretty light in defence (where aren't we light to be fair) so there may be an opportunity for him this season, especially if we decide to cash in on Sylvain Distin.
