Peter Kyle, the Woolwich Arsenal centre forward, is a much-sought man at the present time. The much-travelled Scot is on the Arsenal’s transfer list. At any rate, the “Gunners” are prepared to part with him. He is not in favour at Plumstead at the present time, and has been suspended for the remainder of the season.
Last week the maximum fee was offered for his transfer by one of the leading League clubs in Lancashire, and since then another Lancashire club has been, and are still, on his track. But no one seems to know where he is.
Even the Arsenal officials are not aware of his whereabouts, for, if report speaks correctly, they are anxious to discharge their obligations and pay him an outstanding week’s wages.
