    If they offered 500k I think the club would take it but doubt it is anywhere near that.

    Depends on the amount being offered. With Barnsley being flush with the Mawson money and us not in a position to have to sell then we should hold out for more than he's worth and a decent sell on. Otherwise get him out on loan and playing 1st team football

    And I think they got about 7mil from John stones deal.

    I would prefer to believe the rumour that Bournemouth were going to spend 15m on Caulker and Onouha! Should anything (I know it is very unlikely) like this eventuate then I would expect Kpekwa to get at least 15 games this year, and we would all have a good opinion as to whether he is likely to make it or not

    I could well see a late move for Caulker by someone leaving us with money and no time to spend it

    Before anyone moans about him not being in the squad today, he played for the U23's yesterday, so highly doubt he'd have travelled regardless.

    Him leaving would make a mockery of our supposed development policy, ie the stated intent to bring them through. Its not like they're offering several million. The way Southampton did it was to get them into the first team, use it as a showcase, and then sell pretty quickly for decent dough. Selling them at this point makes no sense.

    I don't think we're all that at the back, Caulker could be off, get one of the others injured and then where are we? No brainer to keep.

    seems to have a whiff of truth this move. Very disappointed if this happens

    The problem is Cole has shown absolutely nothing in his 20 games as a pro. Comparing it to Southampton is ridiculous!

    People keep banging on about bringing youth players through, the problem is, they're not good enough. You know if they are within a few games, like Shodipo.

    We have just started to ensure we're bringing good quality players through the ranks but we're not going to see the results at first team level for at least 5 years.

    TBF to cole, he's been alright. Not done much wrong, just hasn't come across as being a special talent. He's got the physical qualities to make him a potentially good defender at this level, but he won't get first team football with us any time soon. I see (in both positions he plays) too much quality competition to give him a chance: at CB - Lynch, Ned, Hall, Caulker, at LB - Robinson, Bidwell, Perch.

    I like Cole! Think he's got a lot of potential.

    I would personally like to see him loaned to a championship club and see how he gets on playing regularly at this level.

    Think he's being played as CB in the reserves and has potential as a player. 6' 3".

    If we are selling has to be a 25% sell on clause just in case
