Is the lad interested in coming here?

Yeah but quite far away in terms of the deal financially.

He could play a decent ball over the top if he had space and time. Other wise he was too slow, predictable and just couldn’t function in tight midfield areas. My opinion.

His passing was OK here.

That Makes me depressed watching that. Look how we create chances and pass the ball with thought and conviction.  Sure its highlights but you see more in that video than you saw last night.

@diggerlad07 is it a permanent or a loan you know mate? I would prefer latter myself.

Also does anyone know what fee was for Morsy?

And finally does anyone know what Mendez Laings breach was? I would quite like him here but all depends on what he done wrong i guess?

I know Clayton wasn't Makelele and now he's not the player he was, but he got totally underrated on this board as well. 

He was as good as anyone in the division for a couple of seasons and that wasn't just for his tackling ability, he could play as well.

This is the view on Mendez-Laing situation here in Cardiff

Nixon says he has a story on us tomorrow probably Zohore but he might have a new name he broke Williams/Bettinelli first he might have sniffed another name out let's see.

Oh it's definitely a loan. They are asking £1million loan fee and 70% of his wages covered but not sure how much he's on

Zohore is apparently injured and is not training with the WBA squad. Wonder if it’s because a move is imminent or if he’s genuinely injured.

Aye, I remember when everyone thought Clayton shouldn't be in the team going into the promotion season, that Forshaw should be alongside Leadbitter instead. I liked Forshaw, thought he was a good fit for our midfield but didn't quite have the same crunchiness that Clayton provided. Clayton's passing was fine, people just thought he couldn't pass beyond 5 yards because those were primarily the passes he was asked to make to keep it simple in midfield.

Can’t imagine he is on more than 30 k after promotion (which is still a lot). I’d expect both things to be reduced. Split the wages and a 600k fee

Clayton has absolutely immense for two seasons under Karanka, was asked to play a DM role and done it perfectly. Personally loved watching us play in that Era going into games bossing midfield.

Think that’s the standard line to give to journos when someone has been left out even if the real reason has nothing to do with fitness. I remember we did the same with Tomlin when we sold him to Bournemouth

Clayton was brilliant under Karanka and you can't fault him for that. But when we got relegated back down to the Championship the entire midfielder should have been overhauled. Unfortunately he became too slow for the Championship and we still need to add some much needed pace into that area of midfield but at least with Morsy we'll have some aggression in there now because we have missed that since Leadbitter.
