“And I must say that Said has been bang-on in terms of attitude and being a top professional. That’s just the transfer window.
“I think he did fairly well, it wasn’t his best 20 minutes but he still showed good actions and put in one unbelievable cross. One inch more and it’s a goal for Ivan Toney.
“I’m happy with his attitude. I don’t know what’s going to happen, I can only guess. If he’s here, then I’m more than happy to have one of the best attackers in the division.”
