Personal terms for a loan? So we may be saying if he goes we pay him nothing per week, and then it’s up to Norwich what they are prepared to pay him per week?

Don't think he would accept that deal. I wonder if Personal terms means if accommodation is provided etc

Good - this is one deal that should be done.

 

Nothing against Jordan - think he’s a good guy but he isn’t a good fit for us and I don’t think he’s a good all round player anyway.

 

Hopefully, this will allow us to get some business done.

I'd have thought the bare minimum would be a fee that covers whatever Middlesbro are owed this season

... plus 100% of his wages for the duration of the loan

... plus something for the kitty

 

We aren't a charity after all

Loan agreements don't cover performance related bonuses, he'll be going down to discuss these and any possible future contract with Norwich (if it's a loan with a permanent option)

And if we have to play Naaarwech in the play-offs?

 

You already know the answer ... :manager:

 

It's not all about potting the ball; it's about thinking where the cue ball will end up.

My main worry about letting him go has always been that he will rediscover his goal-scoring form of old.

 

Because the only clubs which can afford him are our rivals.

 

And bearing in mind his record against us, well, I hardly need to say ...

I was just coming on to update you but someone beat me to it. As stated we're pretty sure that Jordan is down here for talks today & that our two clubs have come to an agreement re the loan fee which rumour has it is a lot less than you were asking, presumably as you want to get shot

 

Could a fresh start get him performing again, who knows, mixed feelings down here, but we desperately need a striker & we're hoping if he does signs, that he does the business for us

 

Good Luck for next season other than when you play us

It's amazing how quickly people have turned against Jordan Rhodes.

 

I want him playing for Sheffield Wednesday,  not sold off or loaned out to our rivals.

Last Friday was sat on the tram and 3 men got on at the Rawson going to town and sat next to us and they must have been pigs.

"have you heard Wednesday are trying to offload Rhodes"

"Yes"

"and they have to pay £3m TO Norwich for them to take him on loan for the season"

"they are in reight trouble"

 

Me to mate

" I see united have sold Brooks for about £12m to Bournemouth"

"yep, they always seem to get loads for players who are crap"

"At least he is moving to a bigger club"

Then we got off in town.

 

Luckily for everyone concerned, the conversation didn't start on the way back from town.

So do I, but not if he isn't scoring and clogging up the wage bill.

For those wanting him to stay, who shall we move on instead (realistically ie players others would want)?

 

We can’t keep this squad together in full.

The only real solution to this problem is for the wealthy clubs in this division to join forces and refuse to play any of the parachute teams unless they're allowed to spend their money as they wish.

 

Chansiri once said that he'd spend £200 million to get us up.

 

It's scandalous that we'll have to sell players which we can afford to keep, just to satisfy financial unfair play.

This ^^^^^^^^

 

Come on Katrien, have their pants down

 

What people are forgetting is that they want him, but we want rid of him.


Norwich will know this which is why we won't just be able to demand what we want for Jordan Rhodes.

 

I just hope the deal goes through - Hunt and Rhodes were both on my list of disposable assets to try and assist with the FFP situation. Two out in a couple of days would be good work by the club.

I think Wednesdayites have been, and still are incredibly tolerant towards Rhodes. It usually only takes us 45 mins to write a player off as being bobbar. 18 months and £8 million for next to nothing in return. I can’t think of another player we have ever had who has had so many (some may be valid) excuses made for them.

He was embarrassed by Nuhiu last season.  I don't want him playing for us if he performs like that.  The way his signing turned out has been a huge, huge shame.  :sad:

Buyer's market for this deal though: Norwich presumably know we want him out the door.
