WOW……This transfer window is getting better & better. Who ever worked their magic on getting any sort of fee for DM deserves mass credit. #bcafc

We’ve actually received money for him… wow!

I think Poleon will score goals in League 2, but he's nowhere near being good enough for a promotion chasing League One team
When he was younger he was decent on the ball, but he looked rigid and overall a poor player with zero technical ability
Good luck to him #bcafc
