Koeman wanted both
Deal was done in the December
January comes along and Walsh insists Depay should only be a loan not permanent. Koeman furious. United said no.
Schniederlin deal eventually got done, Depay ends up in Lyon.
From then Koeman was done with Walsh (who he called clueless)
The Depay deal was rumoured back then, but I had the above told to me over Christmas
Its not to say Koeman was great or Depay would have been a great signing
But I do think Walsh is clueless
