I think he will turn to this mystery winger now from abroad, sure he said his contract is up in the summer, it was just a case of gambling for these 6 months. 
 

I remember at the start of the season when Warnock missed out on his top targets and none of them are pulling up any trees, so this could be another blessing in disguise. You never know. 

Admire the optimism, personally just think he means we're back after bolasie, which I think improves us, ideally like some sort of swap deal involving britt, but realistically that won't happen

Can’t believe that people on here are condemning a possible signing because of rumours that he dealt drugs.    One thing or squad is crying out for is someone that can distribute well 😳

Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

He did make a little comment about our out of contracts players which I think he refers to Britt, I wouldn’t rule that out right now.

I can see it now. Latest news. BORO fail to sign several players and beat the deadline after discovering a squirrel had chewed through the fax cable. It was not obviously apparent the line was dead for some time, as the cleaner frequently  uses the same electrical outlet when cleaning the fish tank. 
A investigation revealed although past minor mishaps had in someway contributed in targeted players not signing, it in know way has affected our ability as a club to  progress. On the same note EG source can reveal that in this instance it was judged to be a serious misjudgment of professionalism and the maintenance boy has been terminated. It was alleged BORO have shown compassion and will offer support to Zac as he settles back in too his playgroup. They wish him well.

Warnock said: "I think towards the end of the window there will be quite a few players who are out of contract in the summer, their clubs are going to take offers because they don’t want to lose them for nothing.

"I think that’s not just the same with our strikers but we’re looking at other players at other clubs who we want as well.

"There will be one or two available and it’s about getting value for money really."

When he was talking about making bids for soon to be out of contract players the first name that came to mind was Junior Holliett at Cardiff.

I think so too, but then they have a new manager so he may wait to see if he is in his plans before signing a new deal

It’s quite obvious we as a club are following a predictable trend, or at least the media are. Talk is plentiful but actions and results in the transfer market are few and far between. Once again we near the end of another opportunity after being fed the daily bull @hi£ about selective targets, inquiry’s and offers only this time with a NW twist. This time it’s presented as though we are the tough guy with statements it’s up to him and his agent. While in reality why on earth would any respected player with a oz of ability want to sign a contract knowing we are running down many in the club. Why would you join knowing NW outcasts out of favour players. Join a club who may make the playoffs. 
The reality is we are being shunned by players and now in desperation and at the last minute looking at the numbers game, not quality.  We are hoping to pick up players who want a pay check rather then social benefits.

Wow - that's quite a set of conclusions to draw from so little real info.

If someone gave sanddancer £100,000,000 his first thought would be how much tax he'd have to pay on it....

More nonsense.

We've extended 6 contracts this season, and have discussed extending the remaining 3 first teamers who are out of contract in the summer.

Plenty of very good Championship level players who are out of contract in the summer.

Issac Mbenza
Daniel Johnson
Alex Pritchard
Famara Diedhiou
Alex Mowatt
Junior Holiett
Alan Browne
Adam Reach
Sammy Ameobi
Barry Bannan
Junior Stanislas
Michael Morrison

and from the Premiership there's a few realistic options such as Murphy, Grosicki and Lansbury.

Dwight Gayle would be a dream but a promoted or relegated team will probably sign him.

@RiversideRed some good players on thar list.

Think Browne recently signed a new deal at PNE but Johnson always seems to get decent numbers  for them. He a winger who plays off the right or that just where he playing today?

Ameobi getting game time at Forest ahead of some decent players in Lolley and Knockaert. Defo take the former if he available.

Alex Pritchard is a blast from past. Seriously hampered by injuries that lad.

    • I could be wrong but I'm not sure the actual accounting record would touch the P&L side (until the amortisation is accounted for). If they paid all £12m upfront the bank/cash account would take the hit, but you'd have an asset appear in the accounts. Even if they didn't pay for all £12m upfront they'd most likely record the asset in full and then have a liability account (Liverpool) which would be reduced if and when they paid (using the bank as the other side). But as @ScarBorosays the amortisation (and the expense - P&L side) would still only show as the original cost split between the contract length in this instance £2.4m regardless of when they actually paid.
    • Under normal accounting standards for intangible assets, transfer fees are amortized on a straight-line basis over the period of the players’ contracts. This was how Derby got into trouble by assigning a residual value to reduce the annual amortized cost to the club. Let's say you are allowed to defer the payment, the costs would have to be assessed over a reduced period and therefore be higher in the out years, big risk if you don't succeed.
    • Surely depends how they account for the actual transfer fee payment, can’t remember if they put it through operating costs or not (and Cba to check right now). If the transfer fee is incurred in the P+L as it’s paid then there is definitely a FFP benefit to back ending payments. 
    • It'll be a loan deal for a year as Mr_Maz says.  If it's got any link to FFP then I can only think it's to help Fulham's FFP position for the coming year.  I don't believe they've sold anyone for any serious money so far, and they would ideally want to keep the net transfer spend as close to zero as possible, as their wage bill will be higher than the parachute payments they receive.  If things don't go as they plan this season then they will probably sell players next summer, which would balance things out for FFP and also cash flow, so the transfer of Wilson then will be fine.
    • https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/cardiff-city-youngster-who-really-21140778 If I was a Cardiff fan I'd read those paragraph's as Brown will probably be gone and Boro's rejected bid wasn't far off, it would be interesting if we sign him AND Kean Bryan. It would definitely add some depth to our left side especially if we're looking to play 5 at the back more often than not.
