Wickham vs Rhodes a way round FFP

Recommended Posts

Wickham is a more rounded player but clearly has injury issues and may not be be quite the player he was.

 

He is one player though I really wish we had done what was possible to get here permanently.

I was saying if we are that close to FFP would we really be able to spend a reported 4 million on a player. Perhaps we arent as close as is being made out.

 

The £4m will be paid in installments over the length of the contract (5 years) as is usually practice.  So less than a million a season.

Also his wages probably won't be as ridiculous as someone already in the Championship's would have been (eg Harlee Dean who knows he'll be on a bosman next summer and could sit it out for a better contract if he isn't offered a good deal now).

 

So this signing will likely be miles cheaper for the club than say buying Morrison.

Wickham would be a great loan signing would be a perfect partner for a Hooper or Rhodes.

Connor Wickham is on 60k a week so unless Palace are going to pay at least half his wages I can't see it happening unfortunately.

I would imagine, Palace will be quite happy for Wickham to just get out and play.

 

Of course, they'll seek as bigger percentage of wages covered as possible, but I got see that been a sticking point.

 

Wickham is out of contract next summer (2021). As it currently stands, if he's not playing at Palace, and hasn't proved to any degree, that he's over his fitness issues, he'll be off for nothing in 18 months time. 

 

It makes sense for Palace to allow him out, just to get games. Look at Michael Hector last season...if Chelsea hadn't loaned him to us for a season, and allowed him the platform to prove himself as a top Championship defender, would they have got anywhere near the £7m they've just collected off Fulham for his services? No chance. They'd have lost a potentially valuable asset, for nothing.

 

The wage contribution will only be dictated by other clubs bidding against each other in my opinion. Palace will just be desperate for Wickham to get out, play a good number of games and prove himself as a top Championship striker. In the hope, that cum the summer, that form will have him as a much sought after commodity that clubs will be willing to pay a decent wedge for. Remember, Palace paid £9m for Wickham...they'll be seeking to get as much of that back as possible. Squabbling over wage contributions won't be high on their priorities (although of course, they'll seek as higher contribution as possible).

Money is in short supply in most champions clubs.

 

Who’s got cash to spend on Jordan Rhodes - it would be a massive gamble

He's out injured isn't he?

 

Thought he'd done his ACL middle of last season.

I’d sell any of our players that aren’t playing. Rhodes should be sold if the right bid comes in like any player in the squad. We should be a selling club and act quickly to bring in the next player. Brentford do this all the time and it’s driven them up the league over many seasons.

 

we've done it with Joao and we should do it with the rest of them.

the whole issue around Rhodes is that we're still paying money to middlesbrough. If we sell we have to cough the remainder, we ain't going to recoop the the same amount if we sell so it#ll go down instantly as a - on the accounts. Only plus is if we ship his entire wages off the bill but chances are we'll have to sub that as well.

 

Are we in a position to take the hit now? or spread it out.

Yep, I thought this was a new thread too until I saw the reference to paring him with Hooper.

 

Maybe someone can dig out a thread from 2004 saying we should sign that Whelan lad on a free transfer too.

I'd be happy for us to offload winnall and Rhodes as long a good forward like Wickham comes in. Out team is still Heavy, old and unbalanced.
