    Agree 100%. As a centre midfielder, you have to be able to play on the half turn and this guy turns like a double decker bus.

    If Ajer leaves?
    No chance, it would leave us only Jullien as an acceptable and recognised CB. Considering we all want to play 3 at the back, we need 4 competent CBs at least.

    Bitton and Elhamed used as examples of cover are exactly that, cover! They should NOT be getting used as the first choice pairing/three.

    Two quality CBs + Jullien would be fine..

    Bitton and Elhamed are CB options no point dismissing that fact. And we could give Welsh some game time too..

    If Ajer leaves of course.

    I take your points mate but do you really think our board are sanctioning 3 CBs in the door this summer even if Ajer goes? No chance for me. Look at the replacements we got at LB from Tierney.

    If we get the lad from Preston and Duffy I think those are two very good additions, particularly Duffy who is very experienced. I’d love a third CB but I’d also take quality over quantity.

    I think we need 3 as well.

    But we wont sign 3.

    If he leaves we will sign 2 then revisit the situation in January.

    Not just because of this week, but I can not see Welsh getting a look in at all this season @JC Anton unfortunatetly.

    I also agree @Thommo92 and @Mr Shelby we need 3, but we wont sign 3. CB has been an issue for years now and we never get it sorted right.

    Which is mad considering he was our best CB against Hamilton last season. He put Julien and Ajer to shame and did what they weren't doing and dealt with Ogkmpoe.

    The fact we haven't seen him much so far does suggest he's down the pecking order.

    Welsh made a competent debut, signing 3 would send the wrong message to the likes of him and its not necessary at the moment.

    Ajer may stay too.

    Course he can celebrate. Just stop acting like Broony when you don't plan on staying here.

    I can't remember the last time we actually invested properly in the January window. Last 4 windows we signed Bayo, Shved, Soro, Klimala, Burke, Kouassi, Compper and Musonda :54:

    Played very well bar his heading in the opposition's box :giggle1:

    Seriously quick once he gets going and we'll miss that once he goes..

    His pace bringing the ball out or covering, is massive..

    One of the best at running with the ball from deep.

    If he's going, he's going. Would try and get Duffy and Benkovic.

    Been very good this week. He’d be a massive loss if he goes.

    Loved that assist for Ajeti's goal. Really want him to stay if possible.

    Good today for a change. Hopefully he keeps it up.
