Clearly has no particular credibility but the following has been posted on a transfer rumour site.

Southend United set to confirm the double signing of Swindon's Paul Benson and Barnet's Rickie Holmes in the coming days. Paul Benson has stated that his love for Southend is behind the move while Rickie Holmes has said that it's a dream to play for his boyhood club again. These deals will see Elliot Benyon leave the club on loan to Woking while Jack Paxman set for loan to Great Wakering.

Stranger things have happened.

I'd just be happy with a few players going out on loan & freeing up some wages...to allow us to bring someone in! As we all know we are financially unsound and got to be near the top of the budget re: league rules.

Are you suggesting that Benyon's wages being freed up would cover the double coup of Benson and Holmes???!!! :omg:

Chris Phillips said we'd need to win the lottery to get them at the moment. Both would be very good signings but I don't know if we can afford it.

if we did sign these two, along with Spillane, this would have to be one of the best jan tran windows we have ever had?

So they've given their reaction to the moves before they're actually signed? Gotta love that transfer bollocks site.

Believe it when I see it.

If we sign Benson I hope we sign someone called Hedges.

Both decent players, but midfielders is what we want.
That may be what WE want but Chris Phillips said last week that the club are keen to bring in a winger and a striker before the transfer window closes. As for Benson as others have said it was reported that he's out of our price range at the moment. :unsure:
