Apparently we've upped the bid for Afobe to in the region of 8 million but wolves are going to reject it, how much more is he worth?

He's a good player but it's starting to get a bit pricey. Well I guess that's young English talent for you.

No Hooper or Grabban in the side at Rotherham. RVW playing up front on his own.


3.) 25 Aug 2015 20:58:00
Apparently Grabban has walked out!

so we just swap Grabban for Michail Antonio.

The Afobe valuation by Wolves was a predictable move. A player they wish to keep, multiple bidders (possibly), the timing is terrible too -so late in the window. This deal would have had a far greater chance of success early in the window and now makes the Gestede transfer look like a bargain.
Nonetheless this deal might still happen. Afobe has the same agent as Dorrans,Howson,Snodgrass and Wisdom. This will help. Wolves want other bidders and in particular they want Newcastle and their massive cheque book to join the fray.
The valuation is clearly nonsense given that Austin can be bought for £15m which in itself is also a daft valuation. Even if Newcastle are willing to get near that price for Afobe, which is doubtful,the player is far more likely to be given game time at Norwich. The action is now with other bidders if there are any. If not the next moves are either a revised Norwich bid or the player puts in a transfer request ( which he will probably be reluctant to do). If he does this the Wolves board will not be holding such a strong hand and they will not be able to hold out for a top dollar. In a negotiation like this just the threat of a transfer request has some value. The most pressing problem for Wolves however is in finding a quality replacement at short notice. Loza or Lafferty on a 1 year loan might give them time. £10-11m may be a price worth paying for Afobe and will give the Wolves board a fig leaf of respectability if they do sell. It's complicated but it is a deal that can be done. It would be great news if we can land this player.

All good points, I agree with the loan aspect, maybe Hooper if it gets Afobe in

Apparently we're now rumoured with Jelavic!
Please no way! Think we should pursue Afobe but think he may cost 8mill if Gayle is 6 and Gray is 7

I would rather have
M'Baye Niang


2.) 20 Aug 2015 20:31:11
Why not swap Hooper for Sam Byram Leeds?


3.) 21 Aug 2015 21:18:40
like the idea of afobe, young so time on his side and a compliment to Jerome, would be happy to offload Grabban if he signed

I wish we'd stop messing around, 1.5 mill for Walters?? We've got to stop scrimping!
I'd offer Hooper and 10-12 mill for Austin, he is young hungry and proven at prem level, he'd be perfect for us.
Is Andre Gray is worth 9 mill, Austin is worth the money

I agree Gayle and Afobe would be great additions, young hungry and with pace! Also now Turner has gone we must have a replacement lined up, hopefully Koubaily or nkoulou
