That would be a good deal for us. Not sure Wolves would see it as such a great deal for them, though.
I really think people need to drop their preconceptions and obsessions with 'value'. This is just what the market is like these days. It is tough to grab a bargain, particularly so if you have backed yourselves into a corner like we have with regard the striker situation.
The salient point is that a £10m deal (which is what it will be I think) can be adsorbed into the books pretty easily now. We have reached that level. Therefore, it should frighten no one. It is all about trusting the manager, I suppose.
