We don't do silly money on players. The club would rather walk away than pay over the odds. We will be paying good money and you'll have a very good sell on clause.
But good money has to meet our valuation or we will hang on for the magic figure.

I'm still sceptical if this deal will happen this soon into the window....

'silly money' really best you go look at what the two previous young player of the years fetched add a year or 2 of rabid transfer inflation and IMO it makes 5 mil for watkins look cheap

I guarantee we wouldn't be paying anywhere near that. I would agree that UK asking price for lower league players is OTT as is your evaluation of Watkins price.

I found it hard to believe myself about derby, not just the money but the fact is they want to be in the premier league quickly and I can't see how Ollie is ready for that any time soon.

But it's true - our board of directors have balls of steel.
