Depends how homesick he really is I suppose - would heading down essentially towards London be good for him if that's the case?

Just spitballing here, no idea whether he is genuinely homesick or not.

It would be a pretty stupid career move to stay at Burnley instead of going to Watford just because they won't accept our offer - which in all likelyhood is less worth financially for Burnley.

But would he rather sit in the burnley stands if Watford is the only club to have a bid accepted. I don't think so.

He doesn't sit in the stands.  He spends all of his time over here 🙂

If Watford were going to play him I'm sure no matter how home sick he is, he would still chose them over us, keep his nice big salary.

I'm just not convinced that's the case. Everything we've heard from people suggests he doesn't want to entertain any other options.

That's alright man, thanks for putting it right. I suspect wage contribution could be a factor if Gibson is willing to pay the wages we don't contribute to just to move to us. Unless Watford stump up the full whack, they could struggle if we're, one way or another, paying all of it.

This is the stuff online - from the Sun transfer blog

"HORNETS STING

Exclusive by Alan Nixon: Watford Boss Nigel Pearson is making a shock move for Burnley’s out of favour centre half Ben Gibson. 

Pearson wants the former Middlesbrough defender who has had a miserable time at Turf Moor since signing for £13 million. 

The Hornets chief is keen to take Gibson on loan and give him a better chance of first team action at Vicarage Road. 

Burnley want Gibson’s wages paid in full and Watford are willing to fork out around £40,000-a-week for the rest of the season. 

Gibson had other loan moves abroad and interest from Boro, but none of them managed to find the funds for a deal. "

I have to say, it would be funny to see Nixon get it wrong... again.

Carter Vickers we are pushing for again. He was at rockcliffe in summer and he is due back again tomorrow. Gibson still isn’t happening pretty much completely stalled now as said a few days ago premiership all wages paid likelyhood.

I would be very surprised if Burnley entertained selling or loaning a player to an immediate rival.

I know there is a gap between the two but seems a risk that they would strengthen a rival
