NON Wednesday transfer thread 24/25


Recommended Posts

Starting with.

Surprise surprise but Warne wants to take Viktor Johansson from Rotherham but faces competition from the pigs. Johansson has one year left but a release clause of around £500k. Rotherham are hoping for a bidding war, especially as Johansson looks likely to be named in the Championship squad of the season. 

 

Joe Wildsmith's contract is up at the end of the season and has attracted Championship interest. However there's a whisper he may be off to Man City as 3rd choice if Scott Carson moves into coaching. City will look to fulfill Carson's spot with another English keeper to keep within their homegrown quota

I like the Rotherham keeper, he seems decent, think we could do a lot worse. Surprised Championship clubs are in for Wildsmith, seems like Dawson to me in as far as they're solid enough for L1, but not quite got enough for the championship?!

Man City may send 18 year old wonder kid Claudio Echeverri out on loan in England to get him used to the pace. 

Signed from River Plate last January but loaned straight back until the end of the season. Dubbed the next Messi and is seen as a long term replacement for De Bruyne

If we get Beadle back, we need a new no. 2, unless Dawson is content with that role, which I doubt. I’d like to see Charles getting regular games so he needs to go out on loan. So we need a keeper to come in and be happy to play second fiddle to Beadle. Not sure if Heston would be, but I’d prefer an older, experienced, been there done it type as back up.

I was at the Etihad last night watching City under 18's thump L**ds 4-0 to win the youth cup.

Very obvious to state but bloody hell they have some good players. Won't be surprised to see a couple of them make it to the first team in a year or two. Emile Heskeys lad scored & played pretty well, but really the whole team was a level or 2 better than L**ds.

In today's 'no shit, Sherlock' news, Swansea are being linked with Macaulay Langstaff but Notts price of £1.5m is putting the owners off which is causing friction between them and Williams. It doesn't look like he's being given a pot to piss in, transfer wise, and they'll be heavy into the loan market 

The price isn't putting Wrexham off though and they are expected to test County's resolve.

500k for Johansson seems decent. I suspect a fair few will match that then it’s over to the contract. Sounds like we prefer Beadle but it would be good to get our own No1 as I don’t think we replaced Westwood. 
 

Blades linked with Sunderlands keeper but that must be a difficult one for them cost wise and also given he could probably get a move to the PL if he plays his cards right

Have I missed something? Last I heard it was  £750-900k depending on who listen to around his release clause

Yea, yea, all right. 

Got that one wrong. Stewart is pushing for £900k and hoping a bidding war takes it over a million. Stoke, Derby, and a couple of others showing interest.

Presumably if there’s a release clause, whatever it is, there will be no bidding war unless no one wants to pay as high as the clause itself. Can’t see many clubs paying 1m for him unconditionally but maybe the changes in tv income change the market this summer.

Basham, Baldock, Norwood, Foderingham and Lowe released by the Blades.

I know it's only terminology but "releasing" players infers they didn't want them and I thought they were trying to keep hold of Foderingham who they'd dropped because he wouldn't sign a new contract along with a few clangers of course that spring to mind . I know Basham is knocking on a bit now, 36 soon and recently had a really bad injury so not surprised there. Thought one or two of the others had been offered a deal as well. Got Tufty written all over it that has.😂

They've already tabled a bid for Johansson but it's well short

Didn't they pay £2m for the bloke from Atletico Madrid (IIRC)? The one that looks to be missing a vowel or two from his surname? He doesn't look anything special either.

 

Apparently they released the retained/released list early so they can give them a good old bramall lane send off which I take to be soaking them in piss, the odd sucker punch or two and a couple of verses of the greasy chip butty song.

Rotherham sign Clarke-Harris

Stewart has broken his League 1 wage structure to get him to sign and he won't be the last. 

There's a few in my world think Rotherham will be fucked financially if Evans gets his way on signings but they don't go straight back up.

Joe Wildsmith released at Derby after an impressive season with them.

Would he be prepared to come back as no. 2 if Dawson doesn't re-sign?

No.

Rumours are he is off to Citeh to fill their homegrown quota

As Reesh said. 

While he's still only 28 the lure of £20-25k a week and medals for sitting on a bench, with the odd game thrown in, sets his family up very well. 

He was on £3k with us and £7k at Derby
