    My primary concern is that we dont have anyone else lined up and just roll the ball down the hill, so to speak.

    I think bringing players to Scotland has become harder than ever. Players who command £5m plus will feel they can go to a bigger league and earn more money. The truth is they can. This £40m in the bank we have is peanuts to what every epl team has and also lots of other teams in big leagues. Also despite the championship being a fairly low level league (imo anyway) players go there to teams who * money dreaming of grandure. They want the quick buck first. These days it is money>trophies

    Getting capped by Belgium automatcally adds a few million to your value these days.

    If this guy was * belarusian we'd get him for 4m... max.

    Probably less, I don't see how a mid table side can demand £10m for a bench warmer for any other reason

    I think recruitment of top quality players is getting harder. Especially young promising talent.

    You'd think the success of (in terms of their transfers) the likes of VVD, Wanyama, Dembele, Maybe Eddie in a few years as well then the clubs that were interested in guys like Boyata, Ntcham would show guys that we are a perfect place to go.

    Nope.

    Well this guy is 23 not 19 and is already capped.
    Anybody with experience will not come here unless they are on their last legs or struggling to get game time. Sinclair was of the latter Compper of the former.

    My concern too.

    I also fear that this guy was actually our second choice RB after that guy who ended up going to Valencia in the summer.

    Which means if we don't get this *, we're onto our third option... so essentially scraping around in the * and hoping to hit the lotto.

    Fills me with lots of optimism for next part of the season.

    There are about a million affordable rb's out there who could improve our back line.

    But for two reasons it will be hard for us. Firstly finding someone with actual resale value above what we pay, secondly we are likely to offer buttons for said player.

    Its a lottery tbh

    thats the problem the head of recruitment doesnt fill me with confindence after dembele was sold and no back up or second option to bring in and if we just bring in youth players and loans then i think the manager is off .

    head of recruitment has been pish so far as theres must be £140,000 a week in wages being wasted or even more with the duds that have been brought in over the last 2 seasons .

    If they are asking for £10 million we should move on, we should have 2/3 players lined up for that position if our number 1 target is a no go. Yet we'll probably haggle right up until the deadline and get nobody in.

    Before increasing our bid in 10k instalments? No chance. Lawell tactics.

    The headlines would be great if he signed and his goal put Valencia out:
    'Spaniards left shaking as Casta nets'.
