If we were to do a deal with Villa and I doubt that we will. Then it would be something like this.

£10m plus Hourihane would be a brilliant deal for us.

An above average Championship midfielder. Get him sold. Build the side.

True but I can’t believe Bruce would want to sell him before he’s had chance to work with him.

 

Bruce is his own man and I also can’t believe he’d have agreed to come to Wednesday if we were going to sell our best player this month.

I’m at a loss to explain DC’s FFP strategy then. Because unless we find £15m between now and the end of the season we could face a points deduction.

The Star website is terrible.

Thanks to the OP for posting the story, just wished I didn’t have to click the link.

Perhaps getting all them players off the wage bill in the summer and selling a few fringe players between now and then may satisfy the football league.

But has Steve Bruce approved any exits?  Would want to reach out to keep Reach if we're to progress this season and next

You'd probably sell to Wolves.

 

As a PL side they'd be able to pay more.

 

The only advantage in selling to Veela is if it helped them thwart United and Leeds' promotion bids.

And re-establishing the Hourihane/Winnall partnership which Bruce stopped us doing when at Veela.

Sam Clucas went to Swansea before the new TV deal came into affect for £17M in January so we should use this as a yardstick for Reach. Anything in the range of £16M-£18M with add ons is reasonable  given his age, nationality and experience. So long as the guaranteed amount exceeds the FFP/P&S black whole then we should look to sell

Does anyone know if there is a sell on clause for Reach as part of the deal when we signed him from Boro? 

 

Yes, 90%

This squad is simply not good enough to get us promoted, we have not improved since the playoff final defeat.  We have some very talented players but we are disjointed, lack pace all over the pitch and in key areas are physically not strong enough.  If selling any number of players despite who they are allows Bruce to start rebuilding then it needs to be done.

A £4 million loss on Van Aken hurts also in accounts this financial year and with FFP.

 

Prefer a loan now and sale after 1 June .

 

That said, can Bruce - a brilliant stopper - coach Van to be a good centre half?

 

He's still young.

A bit like Neves, Reach offers the possibility of adding goals to a midfield without breaking down the opposites defence. Great engine, good professional - not surprised he is sought after. At least twice as good as Madine - 12 million minimum. 

PS No chance Villa would exchange Hourihane.

personally and I dont think I'm going over the top a few will think I am  but I would hold out for £20m 

 

not because he or anyone is worth it tbh but the obscene amounts paid for players these days why the feck should we give away a player who will only get better than he is now 

 

how much did we give antonio away for  ffs  hope we dont do it again
