Official transfer rumour thread

Recommended Posts

Typical Norwich, missed out on a defender as Nathan Ake decides to sign for Man City.

Will we ever sign a decent CB? 😡

£41,000,000 is a massive boost to Bournemouth's coffers. That's a lot of spending power for Howe or his successor.

Or it plugs a gap in their finances as (it's been reported) none of their players have relegation clauses in their contracts.

Interesting to see where the market is being set for relegated players. Bournemouth conceded just 10 less than us, still went down- and they have a home-grown defender leaving for that amount. 

Not saying Godfrey is on the same level as Ake necessarily- but the market is what the market is.

Does he count as home grown? He’s dutch. Genuine question.

He's on their home grown list on the Premier League website. 

Think he's a good player, will suit Man City well.

Same as Krul, Ake was at Chelsea from the age of 16 so as far as UEFA are concerned the answer is yes.

 I mean, you would think that but given Bournmouths stonking rich owners who had no issues with spunking ridiculous sums on deadwood players 40 million isnt much to them

He would do as he came through Chelsea's youth team. 

Home grown means you played in this country for three seasons between the ages of 16-21 (I think). Nationality doesn't come into it. So hence Krul counts as homegrown for us as he was playing for Newcastle in those years.

Ah ok, knew Krul qualifies, had a hunch he would too, seems to have been here forever.

he will have a very easy job at Man City 😂

Does the Ake transfer give any guidance as to Godfrey's market value, I wonder? Somewhere in the £20-25m bracket I'd guess, all things considered.

Given our performance this season his price has no doubt lowered, but hes still young and English which of course raises it

 

I would honestly estimate around 15 million or so

£15m no way. Ben Gibson cost £15m.

£25m would be a minimum for Godfrey.

Their finances are screwed. 90 mill of debt, 11k stadium capacity, something like 76mill in outstanding transfer fees... oh yeah and a wage bill over 111mill.

Callum wilson is on 100k per week+.

They're going to have to have a fire sale just to get the numbers into something that won't sink the club.

Saw something about them still owing £81m in transfer fees and before Ake only having £5m due to them. 

They need to sell to get their wage bill down too so expect a few more before they can really start to spend.

They made a 32 mill loss last year too.

I feel like Liverpool should do Bournemouth a solid and pay massively over the odds for Callum Wilson to say thanks for Bournemouth somehow giving them a combined £40m odd for Jordan Ibe, Dominic Solanke and Brad Smith.

Going to sound odd but I promise it's relevant. Have we been linked with any cockney-sounding white players? Anyone know?

Yeah, he'd be a good option - depending on what Burnley want for him. I think after his £15m move he has barely played for them.

I saw that Warnock wanted to bring him back to Boro on loan. Norwich jumping on that deal, even with a loan, could be a good move.

There's an article on the Athletic that states that they plan to sell just Ake, King and Wilson, which they believe will be enough to survive this season and enable them to buy a few players this summer.

They also have a group of good, young players that they believe can thrive in the Chamionship... Cook, Brooks, Ramsdale, Kelly, Mepham and Lerma, although he will attract interest.

I'm sure they'll be challenging next year, particularly if Howe stays. I'm sure they won't mind breaking FFP again...

Well @cambridgeshire canary has posted on another thread that he heard we are in for Oxfords Rob Dickie? Does that fit the bill for you? What have you heard chap?

Lerma will go, as will Brooks. They have some decent players but I don't particularly fear them without Wilson, Ake and King.

Not sure Brooks will go, his injury has set him back a bit.

Hes from near Reading so don't think he's a cockney but may have a London accent.

So an England under 21 captain who's played a full season in the prem is only worth a couple of million more than the Murphy's and Pritchard?!
