Somethings possible in terms of money being available. Chansiri said we don't need to sell players still (thats beyond me but w.e). Bruce is well known for liking a bit of a money pot. Add to that the 14 players that are out of contract in June, which would free up a lot. I wonder. Plus the ffp is 3 years rolling. That eliminates the money we spent in year 1 from our ffp accounts which was on Hooper, Forestieri, Matias, Joao and others. So i presume as we are comimg up to year 5 next season since we started spending big that we will start to be free'd up again in terms of money to spend. I don't know! 

 

I may be wrong but I thought next season, even taking into account the rolling 3 year system, we will be even more in breach of FFP - something like going from 8% over to 20% over,  figures I read a while ago?

Personally think he is a class above a lot in the championship.

 

Sort of player that will sign for spurs and be the next big England talent. Just needs the right environment and coach. 

 

I respect your opinion but i have to disagree

No idea. Its all guesswork from me. I suppose if clubs can't get it right then we have no chance of knowing the realities.

Nick Powell is out of contract this year.

 

A good age in an area of the pitch which will need bolstering in the summer.

I’m struggling to see why Villa would feel they need Reach

West Brom are keen on Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden, according to The Telegraph journalist John Percy on Twitter.

The 23-year-old has made eight appearances for Rafa Benitez’s side in the Premier League this season and could leave this month in search of more regular first-team action.

I've found generally, when someone does very well against you. Like Reach has against Villa, it sparks interest.

 

These billionaire owners like what they see, their families see it. It's all they can talk about.

 

Whether it makes positional sense or not...

As much as I’d like to see Hayden here, a midfielder doesn’t seem to be one of Bruce’s priorities The consensus seems to be, that he wants a right back, a centre back and a centre forward. The latter two positions, are often priorities that Bruce likes to address, wherever he is Usually a veteran, or experienced centre back, often with leadership qualities, and a quick and mobile centre forward. Both would suit our needs. That’s not to say we couldn’t do with a little more bite in midfield though, but maybe he feels we may already have such a player at the club (Hutchinson/Hector)

Isaac Hayden would be a great signing and considering he can play right back and in defence he ticks a few boxes. If players like him are available and in budget we should sign them. Especially as part of our trimming in the summer we need to be replacing the likes of Jones with midfielders like Hayden.

That might change things, im not worried, id rather have the straight cash, players youve mentioned would be on a fortune, unlikely we would be able to match let alone improve.

Get this but our wage bill has significantly increased since then I would say year two signings such as abdi Jones fletcher and Boyd would accumulate in the region of about £140k per week which is over 7million a year just on wages
