Seeing quite a few reports suggesting Norwich are still interested in signing him, originally the club's couldn't agree a fee but believe we've dropped our asking price don't think it would be a bad idea to offload him personally, we have to many strikers as it is

Wages are the new transfer fees, and we pay our foookers way too much.

I think £3m is about right. He’s on £35k pw as well so it’s a big commitment for Norwich especially as he won’t be first choice.

 

If we can get this deal done, it will be good business for Wednesday. Maybe use the funds to bring in Hector which must be seen as a priority.

Fletcher, Forestieri, Winnall, Joao and Nuhiu will be just fine.

I lived in Naaaaridge for 12 years. 152 miles, 3 hours if you were lucky. All I will say is caravans should only be allowed on the road from midnight, until 00:01! Or you can legally use heat-seeking missiles on them.

I'd wait, but then I don't fully understand our financial position. If needs must, we may have to consider any serious offers. Plus, Rhodes' return here has not been talked up enthusiastically by the club.

Still feel Rhodes can come good again, but we aren't in a position to gamble on that hand turning, so we've got to let him go for any sensible offer. Getting him of the wage bill alone could be the difference between adding a couple of quality loans and not.

I don't think it is. 

 

None of them are capable of 20 goals - you need a striker that can get you that to get out of this league.

All could be capable of 20 goals we just need to pick two or three or whatever we play  supply them with good service and then stick to them.

 Forestieri, Joao and Fletcher have all shown that when they get a run of consecutive games in the team they are capable of getting the goals.

Don't agree with this on two points.

 

Firstly not seen any evidence that Rhodes would get us 20 plus goals

 

Secondly it's not important that one player gets you 20 goals, what is important is that the team as a whole get in excess of 70 goals that gives you a good shot of the top 6.

If we sell him for £3m then we will have to pay the rest of his transfer owe to Boro immediately (£4m) as I understand it. So not worth it for us

Didn't make it clear in my original post - I dont think Rhodes will score 20 goals either 

 

Nor will what we are left with

Over Boro a million of the deal to sign off.

 

Gibbo is on his arse and would bite our hands off.

Why?! They're due £2m this season if they do nothing, why would they accept £1m? :ghoulguy:

I think the smart move is on another season long loan

 

Wages off the books and another 1.5m loan fee in the bank.

 

Would mean we haven’t paid wages for a couple of seasons (saving us 3.5m) and we’ve banked nearly 3m in loan fees.
