Transfer Window Rumours and Thoughts

Looks like Summerville will go and we should be in a position to negotiate a good fee given the level of interest.

Harrison looks to be going back to Everton on loan. Should have just let him go to Leicester when we could get a fee.

A permanent deal could be agreed soon for Roca to Betis. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is around £5m which will give us a break even on his amortized value and get his wages off the books. Anything above this probably a bonus.

Llorente deal to Roma rumoured to be off. Would consider keeping him though. I know he’s got his flaws but his passing could be very useful.

Wober’s had a rough start to the Euros and I don’t think he’s great. Prefer Struijk at LCB and happy with Cooper as back up. Don’t know if Monchengladbach have any money or willingness to buy him though.

Praying we keep hold of Gray.

I have heard we are very close to signing Skipp though. Does this mean Gray is going? Ampadu is a CB? Or Gray is a RB?

Linked to signing a Serbian forward called Ratkov. I know nothing other than he is at Red Bull Salzburg.

Rodon asking price apparently £10m. Bigger problem will be competing with Premier League clubs for him.

Not much to go on yet. Think Summerville going for a good fee early will probably be a positive. A fee for Roca will be better than a loan. Skipp should be a great signing but wonder what it means as mentioned above.

Anybody know anything else?

Not much to go on yet!!

Look at Adam Wharton. 20 years old. Moves to
Palace for somewhere in the region of 20 mill.
At the Euros with England. Are either Cree or
Archie with twice Wharton? Nope.

————————————————————-

They didnt sign him for £20m, when he was an england player 🤦🤦🤦

I’m also surprised by the news from Don. Doesn’t really make sense to me and doesn’t add up. Look at the analysis that’s been done of the accounts up to last year and the professional opinion is that everything is ok. Also add into the lack of scrutiny that the football league has placed on this year’s accounts in comparison to Leicesters. After all this is the same accounting period that is being debated.

Given the position that Leeds are in following last years account it would take a really significant loss to this season to put us beyond the limit, never mind being £40m beyond the limit currently. Which sounds improbably to me.

However, Don is pretty much always spot on. If not always. And we obviously don’t have all the facts and figures. As we shouldn’t expect to. So I am worried. And a lot more worried than I was before Don typed his comment.

If Don’s info is as genuine is often is then we are not in as strong a position to get out of this league as I expected.

The way I see it we're worse off then last year. Will struggle to make the playoffs.

Still can't read then. Never said Palace signed him
when he was an England player.

Palace signed Wharton for 20 mill. He's 20. He's
also with England at the Euros. Full International.


Take whatever logic you're throwing out and apply
to Summerville and Archie.

Summerville isn't a full Dutch international.
Not at Euros. He's 22.

Archie isn't a full international. Nor is he at Euros.
He's 18.

So again, are either Archie or Summerville worth
twice as much as Wharton. No.

If we're expected to pay 40 mill by June 30th
then selling both will have to happen to raise that.

How much you have to pay for Wharton now ?


£50m/£60m ?

Thats with 2 caps.


Am not saying they are worth 40m, your logic is totally flawed and not like for like.

Blackburn have always been a selling club over recent years. They probably snapped their hands off at 20m. Id like to think we would hold out for more for our players.

posted 4 weeks ago

Would be happy if we signed Rodon but wont cry if we don't. Theres plenty of other defenders out there. Think we need to spend on attackers if we lose Summerville and Gnonto.

Click bait Newsnow linking us with Jack Clarke which with our apparent financial restraints seems highly unlikely but even so I'd say he's the Championship version of Cole Palmer and if an EPL club doesn't snap him up it would be great if he did return to us but like I say I think he's beyond our reach unfortunately.

Perfect for us, Macca, over-rated, over-priced and more biscuity than Bamford.

Fair enough Farky and good point as I forgot about his
injury record which probably only increases the likelihood he will join our ranks of sick note merchants.... but seriously the times he was fit to play last season he looked a class above but like you say he unfortunately seems to be cursed with a poor injury record.

Anyway I think we do need at least one new wide player with Summerville and Gnonto likely to depart and Poveda and Anthony no longer an option so I'm wondering if we'll finally get to see the perennial rumour
mill of Ryan Kent joining Leeds finally come to fruition.

Lets take a worse case scenario for selling everyone thats had links away so far;

Gray - £30m
Summerville - £30m
Gruev - £10m
Gnonto £17m

That would leave a starting line up something like below. With £80-£90m brought in of which almost all of it would be profit for PnS purposes.

Piroe/Bamford/Joseph

Rutter Aaronson James

Ampadu Kamara

Firpo Struijk/Wober Llorente/Cresswell Byram

Meslier

I would love to keep Gray. But surely whatever the PnS situation is currently we can make a success of this window and bully our way out of the league.

That team is still a great place to start from with a decent budget.
