    Youd think at his age a good bit of coaching would've had that touch sorted especially playing alongside some of the players he has, right back might work if he can tackle, failing that he might just fade away.
    If he cant skin spl defenders he's not worth 12m and really needs a good coach to help him.

    I still think that he would be an interesting project: he has some outstanding physical attributes.

    Would West Brom accept a heavy loss on him though?

    That attempt just proved without doubt that the big guy has no predator instincts whatsoever....never a striker and definitely not worth the fees he's commanded thus far.......good runner though

    I think with a bit of positional training he could make a very good right back, bombing up and down the wing.

    No * would be able to go past him cause he is that fast.

    Never a winger or a number 9 in a million years. Plus we shouldn’t be paying any more than 2/3 million for him. WBA took a massive hit shelling out 15 million RB Leipzig pulled their pants down.

    Nope.

    He will go back there and get games for them IMO. I wouldn't pay more than £4m for him. I think for anymore than that or even the equivalent you could find someone abroad who's technically better and has a higher ceiling.

    Never mind not a winger, striker, RB etc. Hes barely a footballer.

    Could genuinely carve out a sterling career as a running back in American football.

    Possibly has his uses as a right winger but we've got Forrest and Shved.

    Best of luck to the guy but I was wrong about him. He's so poor technically.

    Seen Sinclair miss one easier that at the back post against the Huns last season not sure if the Livingston player caught him a bit and put him off but he should still put it away

    It’s his birthday the day.

    Hopefully somebody bought him a first touch.
