Started off poor, then spent a season in the championship, found himself, and wasn't as shite as the rest of your defence last year. He was one of the first names on the teamsheet every week!!
Just checked Wiki for stats too, and he's played over 100 games for you in the last 3 years, that doesn't really smack of a player who wouldn't be starting every game for you this season, especially given that you haven't signed a centre back, and got rid of Sol. There's no sugarcoating the fact that IF he goes, and it's a big if given that it's a twitter rumour, he'll be a huge loss to you.
