New Signing - Shefki Kuqi
Don't worry he's only on loan! The 30 year old "Flying Finn", Shefki Kuqi, has been brought in for four months, from Crystal Palace, to cover for Brian McBride's absence. Kosovan born Kuqi is a Finnish international with 5 goals in 49 appearances. He had a poor season for Palace last year and has subsequently been used mainly as a substitute so far this season. That's not a great recommendation it has to be said. However, Kuqi does have Premiership experience making 34 appearances for Blackburn in 2005/06 and scoring 7 goals. Prior to that he had played for Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Stockport County following his arrival from his adopted homeland where he played for Mikkelin Palloilijat, HJK and FC Jokerit in Finland's Veikkausliiga.
