    I havent noticed much of Hickey only from him being spoken about as a 16 year old when he was playing, same happened before when Levein was playing that 16 year old midfielder at Hearts as well a couple of year ago who has now disappeared I think.

    Yup we would only pay 70% of the asking price.

    I do think he has potential, I'd buy him and loan him to another club for the rest of the season.

    Made 16 year old Dembele look untouchable, ripped by Kent , what exactly is he bringing to the table apart from 'potential'? Calvin Miller is probably a better player

    In fairness, we brought Dembele on when Hickey had already went down with cramp a few times cause hearts used all their subs in the first half. He did get tore apart of Kent and Burke at Kilmarnock but he's defo caught the eye on occasion aswell.

    For the right fee it's a no brainer. Sign him up and loan him straight back to hearts till season end.

    Never been all that impressed when I've seen him play. Certainly not to the point where I think we should be buying him up ASAP.

    He is still young and could develop into a good LB but at the price they're looking for I'd be inclined to wait it out and see how he progresses.

    If Palace want to take the plunge at £1.5 million then I'd let them, with £500k-ish of that coming our way.

    Diets are looking for £1m for him. Fairly low risk and only 17. Worth a punt I think

    Don't see the hype with him but if we can get him cheap/free then worth a punt surely.

    I thought players were given the option of voiding contracts at Hearts? If so he could be free, no?

    Buy him for a million and loan him back to hearts for a year, he's bound to be worth more than that soon. Saves jobs at the diets too.

    Aye * paying hearts anything - feel for the players, but the club screwed themselves and their players and fans. So * em.

    Guy can refuse to take a pay cut, which Hearts will offer termination. Lad can come to us for a few years to develop, maybe break in to the squad, or at worse leave to a better club than Hearts having earned a fair wage for his ability and age.

    AT 17 I aint at all against taking him to the club, but I aint wanting to help bail those * out with an over inflated price considering their demise.

    He reminds me of Tierney when he first broke through. He left thinking he wouldn't get his chance with Tierney infront of him at the time. I would have took this boy in a heart beat over Taylor who is * at defending & can't beat a man.

    We've a clause of 30% I'm sure of any future fee so we could get him for 700 grand..

    Maybe do what we done with Connell paying a bit more when they (Bolton) were in trouble by wiping the 30% off and paying the mill still..

    For 17 he's got a lot of talent. 2 footed. Tall. Good passer. Good crosser..

    Aye he's been shown up a few time's physically no question but he's been thrown in at 16 and a mainstay at 17..

    For the money it's a no brainer as in the future he does have the potential to be a first teamer. Big Tim as well..

    Punt Bolingoli in the summer and sign another first choice LB and Hickey, i'd then loan Hickey out for 6 months.

    Just say to Hearts, we will pay you £1m for him right now or he can refuse the pay cut, you terminate his contract and we get him for * all.

    If we REALLY want him, then pay the 1 mill. We get a decent prospect and Hearts get some much needed dosh to maybe save a few jobs (* the players tho, I'm meaning stuff like office, cleaning, catering staff etc).

    I'd take him, but we already have 3 players in his position and none are really good enough and he wouldn't be either the now. First choice lb should be priority.

    I'd take him definitely and I wouldn't loan him but play rotate him with Taylor where I believe he will eventually overtake Taylor as first choice. I think he has a lot of potential. Boli looks.good in flashes but seems mules off currently
