Can you share some of those figures please and the clubs involved? Would be keen to see.
I can't say I really understand Amber Reds argument TBH, it seems to be that some 16 year olds don't go for a lot of money, which maybe true, but these two 16 year olds are hugely promising, and have had trials with multiple big clubs. It's a bit like saying well Harry Kane won't go for 100 million, because other people have been transferred for less.

I reckon both boys will be gone by the end of the week , I would be amazed if we are able to keep them, hopefully the carrot of first team football and cup football will sway Lee to stay but I doubt it 😩 Cox is the best finisher we’ve had and would score a hatful given the chance, can we resist the offers , only time will tell

At the age of these two, a future career is all about risk. So you'd think that 'taking the money' now was the obvious choice. Given that we are a bit better off than usual, I wonder if the club have considered significant signing-on fees as a way of making the choice of staying at ECFC a bit more attractive?

I don't want to tempt fate on this, but with each passing day I can't help but get just a little more optimistic that they may both sign up & become professionals with us.
Still holding my breath though.

Or maybe they've been offered a good percentage of any future transfer, when they do ultimately leave.
