We are all willing to give a player a chance before writing him off. Its something i wont do now after seeing what warnock has done to several players who have all be wrote off. Djicksteel, bola, fry, johnson, saville. Watmore was released by league one sunderland but came here. Started great and soon had interest from PL teams
Probably because a portuguese team can't afford a 70k/week player in these times. Maybe he didn't want to uproot his family to another country. Who knows. The facts are clear though about his involvement in the first team.
I don't think we are in the position of signing players that a match fit. Every player we will be looking at will be someone who isn't wanted at their current club, or have played very few minutes this season. Unless of course you want us to buy someone we can afford most likely league 1 or 2. We're not in a position to bring in a match fit player from the Prem or Championship. Surely it's a huge gamble to take someone who hasn't played this season but so is continuing with Coulson, Spence and to a degree Roberts on the wings.
