What do the fans think of his signing?



'Sounds like another superb signing by Roberto. Haven't seen him plays but I've read a lot of praising views on him and the Dunfermline fans say they are really going to miss him. I can see Gueret going now if he's going to be playing second fiddle to De Vries.'
