Latest on Argentinian interest in Josh Windass


Recommended Posts

I personally think if we had Windass fit last season that's the difference between autos or 4th.

Be nice to see him stay and have a go next season but,if a 2.5m offer or above came in you'd have to take it.

Desperate for some pace up top tho.Gregory,Sow,Windass.

Windass and Sow the new Hirst and Williams...Make it happen DM...

UTO....

Yeah I’d imagine we are playing the hard to get game which is good to see. People need to pay us decent wedge if they want our players not like the old days

Negotiating tactic perhaps.

 

Not in any way desperate to see Windass leave, but fees in football (below EPL/parachute clubs) few and far between. 

 

Money in the bank and wages saved allows us to invest in perhaps two or more other players. It's a judgement call based on what Windass offers, when fit, which is far from guaranteed and evolving the squad longer term based on Windass' potential contribution next year as he's out of contract after that

I know transfermarkt  has a high measurement uncertainty, but according to that, the largest purchase in the Argentinian League was for £2.6m for a former Argentinian international, also previously of Marseille.  Most of the big money signings are going to Boca, River Plate and Racing (the three clubs I've heard of).  

 

The idea we're going to get £2.5m+ for Windass from one of the smaller Argentinian clubs is 100% fantasy.  CS Lewis is spinning in his grave right now.

Yep.
 

His agent is already in Argentina supposedly, that would be strange if the deal wasn’t likely to happen. Think that would also indicate Windass fancies the move. 

 

Not to mention their President announcing on a radio they have interest in Windass.

 

All signs point to everyone wanting this deal to get done.

I would also want to see us receive the cash up front to protect ourselves

Definitely


All the signs coming out of SWFC is that Windass is on his way and we're looking to make some £££ out of it

Best thing about this if it happens is lessons are being learned and we are not letting them run there contacts down

It's just this season, really.

 

He played 44 times for us last season.

 

Just sod's law he barely kicked a ball in anger for us in League One, where he could have made the world of difference if he'd played a similar amount.

44 times?

 

I thought it was far less than that. Very strange he’s been buggered all this season then.

Not particularly bothered either way TBH. If we keep him he might do well but it’s not a certainty by any means. Still think signing Windass and Paterson to play up front in the championship was daft and a big reason we went down when we did.

I could easily see a scenario where multiple offers come in for Windass once other clubs see there is serious talk of us letting him go. Loads of clubs historically have been linked with him and might take a bit of a gamble on his fitness.

Yeah, he didn't miss a single game through injury for us in 20/21.

 

It's only this season that he's had injury issues.

More likely 1 mill plus future add ons.

I think it’s very reasonable to say Windass would’ve made the difference between playoffs and autos last season. So in that sense I’d be disappointed to see him go.

 

On the flip side he turns 29 during next season, only has one year left on his contract, will be on a pretty high salary, has just missed a whole season through injury and might not suit our style of play. 
 

As with most player sales it comes down to the fee and the replacement. If we get a million pounds and replace him with an exciting free transfer or premier loan leaving the rest of the money to be invested elsewhere then happy days. If we get £250k and bring in a replacement of clearly inferior quality then I’d rather he stayed.
