Enough of Shotton or whoever else's wage packets. Let's get down to transfer news...

If we want to discuss wages then let's create another thread...

I don't think it would, mate.  I don't see a scenario in which players would accept less money than they actually want.  The method of paying that money  - wages or signing on fees - wouldn't alter how much money we have to pay them.  Unless there is some tax benefit to a signing on fee then there would be no reason for any player to accept a bigger signing on fee but miss out on more from a lower wage.

I guess it depends on how the signing on fee works, if they then leave during the period of their contract they could be better off financially by taking a chunk up front and lower ongoing salary. 

But I'm quite surprised that Shotton is on £15k if its true.

Apparently after talking with Augsburg we decided to leave Oxford alone is how the Echo understands it, as the Gazette suggested yesterday I guess. Not much new besides that the Echo rule out the Gregory link and say we're after 1 defender and after that a wide player.

I see it as players are a commodity , valued and promoted by agents and clubs. The players stock value fluctuates based on statistical merit and Investors interest. I dare say players may try and stay put if long term plans exceed short term returns or the profit is lower than the effort needed to move. Least not forget the common denominators of value are divided between Club, Agent, Player and investor. 
We know little about how it works or what they earn and we are not likely to be invited to give an opinion so basically who really gives a @@@@.

The article also mentions that Watford are interested in Gibson. If we fail to agree something with Burnley I can see Gibson being lured in by Nigel Pearson for the rest of the season. They would surely have the finances to accept Burnleys demands. Unless Burnley doesn't want to strengthen a direct opponent.

at the end of the day any move will depend on Gibson so it'll be Ben's decision but i thought Watford well stocked at CB

Yeah I'd say that would rule Watford out of any deal.

Downie saying we’ve had a loan offer rejected for Gibbo, contrasting stories all over.

It's become more complicated because the player they want to replace Gibson with is Dael Fry. 

Higher offer for Dael is imminent 

Ben won't be heading south

Anything over 10 just sell fry. Probably get him back in 2 years for less that half the price

If we need to sell Fry for 10mil plus,  to get Gibson + another CB, its a yes from me.  Never really undestood the hype around Fry only a regular this season and his form in the main has been pritty poor, granted theres potential but give me a 27 year old Gibcon in his prime and a chester/Reid/Dann all day long.

Any idea what the higher offer is likely to be?

    • Liverpool recently posted profits that was in the tens of millions. They don’t need to furlough non-playing staff as they can afford to comfortably pay them. They are expecting the ordinary tax payer to pay their staff wages so they can hang on to their millions. It’s morally wrong to go down this route when they can well afford to pay the wages.
    • Liverpool are getting a lot of flack for furloughing their non-playing staff, whilst paying the players their full salary. I’m sure I’ve read that Boro have done something similar, yet another case of the big clubs getting all the attention. 
    • It seems that way. Oh well. He can just focus on our being our assistant manager then.
    • FAI are trying to save face regarding Keane. Personally I think he will be paid off to leave 'We're in discussions with Robbie' - Keane could still have role with FAI - That’s a quote from over here in Ireland from the new CEO.
    • @Blanco. Looks like Robbie Keane could be on his way out as assistant boss? As you said above, Andrews and Duff have now been confirmed as part of new set up. Apparently there was a rumour Keane could take over u21S but that not happening as u21 boss also been confirmed.
