Ronald Koeman spoke about Sergino Dest spoke in the press meet ahead of their game against Celta Vigo. The manager said that he would stay away from giving any opinion about the newbie until he has signed the dotted lines. "I think he is doing his medical check-up. He still has to sign his contract and until he’s signed I prefer not to give my opinion. It seems clear he will be here and so we can count on a young winger. It’s time to change things here, sign some younger players and consider the full-backs we have got. He’s a young player, he’s played in the Champions League and I’m sure he will be a useful player," he said during the conference.
