“Argus” understands that Mr George Patterson, the Liverpool secretary, is in Sunderland and that the object of his visit is to endeavour to effect the transfer of Pat Gallacher.
Twice before have Liverpool attempted to secure his transfer, and on the last occasion, two seasons ago, the Liverpool club would have advanced upon the offer of £7,000 had the Sunderland directors been agreed upon parting with him.
It is doubtful whether Mr. Patterson will be any more successful this time, for the opinion of the Wearside board appears to have an “about turn” on the question of his transfer within the past week.
Last week-end certain quarters put Gallacher up to Arsenal, but no action was taken by that club in so far as negotiations are concerned.
