I believe the deal's done Roma

To be honest, the lad might become an excellent midfielder but I haven't been entirely convinced when watching him that he's anything approaching the real deal, and CW has had him at Northampton and claimed he wasn't yet ready for 1st team football in L1, let alone the PL.

On that basis, £1m upfront would be a huge help towards the overall transfer budget and the add-ons will be significant. I know we want to develop players from the academy but I'm really not too upset by the sale, for £1m+++ of an unproven player who's had 11 games for us.

I hope he does really well and proves me totally wrong as he seems a top lad.

And that was pretty much my response on What's App today as well.......

Believe we've also signed a CB today - James Wilson (was at Oldham but turned down a new contract) - signed on a free - 2.5 year deal

2.5 year deal? does his contract run out in January then? Not sure how that works.

I think CW has done well so far in his transfer dealing.

However, the proof will be when the season starts. I think quite a few of us were quietly confident at the start of last season. :^^

The talent was already there, and I think he's focussed on the right areas, i.e. the weak ones. So it's now down to CW to get them playing an effective system and playing it well.

Oh well, Kyle McFadzean has signed for Burton.....

Can't really blame him wanting to play in the Champ (for a season)

At lease we didn't offer silly money for him.

Good luck to him, and has Ash says he will probably be back in L1 next season.

Formal Everton bid rejected for DCL. I don't quite have the contacts I once did at SUFC but I was reasonably reliably told the deal had been set up. Maybe the £1m is OK but the add-ons aren't acceptable.

I'd prefer to see him develop under Wilder, but if he goes for good money and he gets a chance higher up, all the best to him.

DCL is barely ready for regular 1st team football at SUFC. let alone Everton and if he goes there now he could easily become another Slew.

We are absolutely right to try for a better deal as Prem teams are awash with way too much cash and if the deal falls through we develop him. If he goes, we have a healthy sum to carry on building the squad - win win for me!  :ok:

Offer rejected for Adams today. He didn't play tonight, suggesting the offer wasn't too far short of the club's valuation.

Rumour is offer has now been accepted - £3.5mil from Newcastle. Not from my usual source but that's a belter of a deal if true!

I'd be truly amazed if that were to be true mate. £2m + add-ons to eventually take it to £3.5m in the event of him scoring the winner in the world cup final - for Tibet, maybe, but not a straight purchase. I still reckon he'll go to a Championship side for a player + cash deal totalling about £2m but we'll see soon enough.

Alex Davey, young Chelsea CB, possibly coming in on loan. Torquay Captain Macdonald, also a CB has been strongly rumoured to be coming. I guess one of these in and we're sorted at the back.

Evidently Alex Davey played last night v Handsworth and was very dodgy so unlikely to have impressed CW.

Don't think some of these Premier League youngsters are geared up for a battle in L1.
