Early in the summer it seemed as though Ngog would head to Sunderland as part of the Jordan Henderson deal, and even after that move fell through there never seemed any doubt he would find his way out of Liverpool when the window was said and done. More recently, it was believed a successful move to Bolton hinged only on Liverpool's ability to acquire a more seasoned backup striker who wouldn't need the games the young Frenchman does to further develop. Now, with the move to bring Craig Bellamy back to Anfield appearing back on, NGog moves on to a club where he will hopefully find that playing time and a chance to develop into the striker he showed flashes of at Liverpool.
As the official site said in it's least terse official transfer announcement in history, we wish the best for the young striker who came in on the cheap, kept his head down, and did his best in what were at times less than ideal circumstances. Here's hoping he comes good in the end.
Also tonight, with the window winding down, Liverpool have officially confirmed the long-rumoured capture of young American striker Villyan Bijev, though with the player unable to receive a work permit at present he has been immediately loaned out to Germany's Fortuna Dusseldorf.
