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.

Britt has been touted about since the summer. I think he will sign a pre contract with a foreign club  and stay until the end of the season.

We've heard so many times now that Britt is either going or looking for a way out that I'll believe it when I see it 🙂 I just hope that when he goes it frees up enough funds to allow some decent strengthening in key areas ie a new striker, a winger and a defender.

Sad to say, but Britt probably won't be missed. Off the top of my head, I can't remember a single moment of brilliance from him, but I can remember many spurned chances and fluffed lines.

He's a decent second-tier striker if you build the team around his strengths, but he's nowhere near enough of a team player, and he's become an expensive luxury at a time of economic hardship. He looks disinterested half the time despite being club captain, and he's nowhere near as good as Fletcher - or many other Championship strikers for that matter.

Yes, we could replace Britt with worse, but we could also do better - and far more cheaply. Hope we get back at least a third of what we've paid for him, which was an obscene amount at the time and looks even worse in hindsight.

He's scored quite a few very good goals. Just the other week he scored a very good goal against Birmingham. I'm certainly a lot more confident with him around the box than Akpom who more or less only scores easy tap ins.

That's now Watmore, Bola, McNair, Howson and Dijksteel tied down to longer deals. Plus the youngsters Folarin and Jones. Personally I think Saville and Fletcher need tying down next, and I wouldn't be adverse to Johnson getting another year and I know NW has said he'll probably get a new deal too.

That then pretty much ties our entire squad down for the next season, barring the loanees, a few youngsters (I think Wood?) and Britt. Beyond that it's only then Wing, Howson, Saville and Johnson (if he gets a new deal) whose deals expire before 2023.

Definitely agree. Saville has found a place under NW. Fletcher is definitely the better keep over Britt. And Wood next season I could see being a much bigger part after earning some trust early This season.

think we'd be lucky to get him off our hands for free in the current climate

Hopefully it’s one of those foreign clubs who throw money around for fun. I’ve always made my opinion of Britt clear, he was never going to live up to a £15m price tag. I honestly think we’re lucky to get a fee so any decent sum is a bonus.

    • This can't be correct because Austria have made it 100% They're playing Italy I think.
    • He did indeed; I'm sure recently I watched Foster talking about it again. If anyone hasn't checked out his channel by the way you really should, his youtube content is excellent viewing. Hope the PL let him keep the gopro!
    • That one reminds me of Paul Robinson scoring with a free kick from just outside his own box. Think he beat The Cycling GK Ben Foster with that one.
    • @DurhamRedi get that concern but at moment if you look at the possible first 11. We got Dijksteel, Fry, Bola and Tav all under 25. Add to that Lumley and Paddy who are both 26. That is 6 out my first 11 that are 26 or under.  In terms of 30 or above we only really have Howson and Morsy.  And Hall but I dont think Hall starts if Fry and Paddy are both fit. A bit more experience probably wont do us any harm in terms of grinding out results. Fully respect some posters might not see it that way mind  
    • It's more because this is the route I want the club to go down sign players with potential not 30 year olds who are passed their peak. That is the case with Smith and hoillet
