Pritchard Sale Moves Closer

Pritchard Sale Moves Closer

Huddersfield Town are closing in on a deal for Alex Pritchard according to The Sun

This morning, the EDP brought us the news that a £5m offer for the City midfielder had been rejected but this is now sounding more than a little worrying.

The Sun suggest that an £11m offer has been discussed and that the player has agreed a four-and-a-half year deal at the John Smith`s Stadium.

I have to say that I`m a little disappointed at all this and yes, I know the report is in The Sun, BUT there`s no smoke without fire and this has all the hallmarks of a transfer that is about to happen.

Last week, David Wagner confirmed he`s an admirer of Pritchard but said he wasn`t sure it was a deal that could happen in January. The fee, if accurate at £11m also surprises me.

Yes, it`s a profit on what we paid Spurs for him eighteen months ago but I personally would value him higher than Jacob Murphy, who you will remember was sold to Newcastle for £12m last summer.

If and when he`s sold though, who replaces him and how good will the replacement be?

I did tell you that this was going to be a busier transfer window than Mr Webber would`ve had us believe.

The club has a terrible record for getting proper value for players.

Heartbreaking. The consequences of the relegation from the Prem ,that some fans celebrated by cheering Neil and his failure players round the pitch , has now truely come home to roost

I'm surprised you're even mildly surprised by this. £6m up front and £5m in impossible add-ons as well I bet. At least we have Super Mario... I agree Yellow, that relegation 'party' so many fans were proud of on the final day is beyond embarrassing. We have a habit of enjoying failure and making excuses for losers to further endorse it.

If a £ 2.5 million profit over 2 years service per player is the smiffs answer to self sufficiency, league 2 here we come.

Someone doing well at AM from league 2 here we come.
