You know I had a feeling fry could be moving on, with what we know off here about Gibson, the pretty strong links to Reece oxford on a permanent move made no sense, specially with woodgates desire for a back 4.
i do find it amusing that less than 5 months ago that the general consensus on this board was not a penny less than £20m for Fry. I believe the bench mark we used was the fee Brighton paid for Bristol Citys Webster. However fast forward just 5 months and some of our fans are now happy to take half of that (some would probably take less than half).
Dael Fry certainly has not set the standards he previously set but there are a number of factors contributing towards that. However, in the last few weeks his performances have improved and i for one hope he stays and continues to improve. And we then sell him for a fee we all felt his ability and performances merited.
I certainly would not be giving up on him. I talked in an earlier post about showing the younger members of our team some patience during they development. Fry falls in to that category. He is 22 and it is rare you see a complete defender, especially a centre half, at the age of 22.
Lets be patient with him whilst he plays his way out of this sticky patch and then sell him for a fee his ability merits eh.
