Bring in two CB's and then sell Paddy to fund Muniz/Lazaro?  just a thought.

I had thought something similar in that we may end up selling someone that the fans would prefer to keep.

I suspect we will try and balance the books this summer. Spence and Akpom being the obvious two but McNair wouldn’t be a shock especially if we have plenty of CB’s and CM’s.

No chance id be selling Paddy. Arguably the best player we have 

Its the "arguably" bit that is the problem for me with Paddy. Definitely versatile, he is arguably our best CB but isn't, arguably our best Midfielder but isn't, arguably our best set piece taker but they rarely amount to anything.

He is very good at a lot of things but not outstanding at any. Without doubt he shows signs of being exceptional occasionally but over the years he has been here its all come in fits and starts. Much of that in fairness is down to successive poor Management rather than just the player himself but at some point he needs to nail down what he really is.

Nah i agree to a point but you know what you get with Paddy, and we need a few of these in the team. Im all for the exciting players but not at the expense of someone like him. That's just me though

 I agree with all of this although I do think Paddy's deliveries are quite good, we just didnt have anyone decent on the end. I hope that will be different already with Ikpeazu and Crooks in the box this year.

In my humble opinion ... What Paddy lacks is in his head ... He has the attributes, but it feels like he is somehow too "nice" ... I need some will, desire and aggression from him.

Looking at our 3 saleable assets to raise funds for a South American shopping spree, Paddy, Tav & Dael, I know who would be my first choice to sell.

He's not a perfect player by any means but he is one of those that is just too invaluable to sell. His versatility, unlike when he was first brought in, has become a real benefit to the first-team. When Pulis had him, it was basically "No good position to start him so not playing him at all", he was just another Martin Cranie in that respect. Now, it's a case of he adds something to the team wherever he plays and can play anywhere in the centre of the pitch.

Also, if it's just so we can sign a South American who nobody knows if they can do it at this level, no thanks.

I don't think paddy is unsellable by any means, but we'd have to make a healthy profit for us to consider it, probably double. 

Agreed. He would get into the majority of Championship teams, so we shouldn't be selling on the cheap.

Personally, I wouldn't want to sell him, but obviously every player has their price, and at his age, we will probably never get more for him than we would this summer.
