      I would be amazed if we managed to get £16M for him.

      From Rib's favourite journalist.

      Another gamble gone wrong FOOTBALL WISE [before any of our financial fans correct me]; a total waste of time but... asking £16m from an Italian team?  At least we can have a laugh about it. 😂 🙄

      Mirror reported 2 days ago that we would accept 13m from Hull and there is nothing in Italian press about this. I'd be quite shocked if this was true.

      Another classic buy cheap, not so cheap and hope it turns to gold. Another classic failure. Penny wise pound foolish. Sack the whole committee that was involved with this deal. Are they still around? Or still around trying to over negotiate deals to impress the owners and yet comes to nothing? Sorry, I'm frustrated, very very frustrated. The restless ones.

      Yes how dare the club not ensure that every single signing is 100% perfect and is a brilliant player!!

      FFS guys no club has a 100% record at signings, this lad looked a very good prospect at the time we bought him but it didn't work out for us or him, it happens.

      It was a stupid buy at that time though, haven't only just bought Lallana, there was absolutely no need to go spunk another £20 million on Markovic, who let's be honest while not being as good is very much the same time of attacking midfielder!!

      That's a fair enough point but at the time he was considered hot property and an exciting signing by most people. The frustrating thing is that you can see there is a good player in him but for whatever reason the pieces just don't all seem to fit together.

      The fact he has failed to impress with us, even had a loan deal cut short by Sporting and then not even do enough for Hull to make them want him, says enough. Mid table Championship team is around his standard, reckon he would be alright somewhere like Villa or that standard in another country.

      At the time of purchase they said 20m because he had potential. I said at the time it was a potential rip off.

      He was hyped as the new wunderkind  winger who was going to terrorise defences.

      A Watford loan is about right for him. 

      A sale for anything we can get ... is about right for us.

      I can't understand why we refused a reasonable offer. 12m would be enough I think.

      Well if he has another decent loan spell with Watford we will get £20 mill easy for him next Summer.

      It's about time we stood firm with our player valuations.

      A masterclass of a signing by Brendan. Even worse than Benteke. Splashing money on this type of players is what held us back so many times.

      Benteke was actually Roger's signing. Mind boggles.

      5 million it is then.

      Seriously, nice to see we are ruining the kids career. Surely we should just grant him a release if we aren't going to play him or let him fight for a spot.

      It works both ways because it's likely he wouldn't want to be released from a highly paid contract that he probably won't get matched elsewhere

      We will struggle to give him away.

      Will a team looking to win things want him? Nah. And what about a team who will probably be fighting relegation? Will they want a wimp?

      I've never seen anything in him to suggest he's a professional footballer. Hope a second tier spanish club show an interest, but we will still be supplementing his wages.

      I think he's mid table quality.

      But even mid table quality is fetching 20 plus million these days.

      Looks like no one wants him through even as a loaner.

      Agreed, has to be one of the worst signings ever. Is he even a football player? I've genuinely seen better at Sunday league

      He's not that bad he looked decent at Hull last season but he's a million miles away from top 4 club quality.
