I wonder what his wage would be?
He certainly looked more than decent in the playoff final.

I do wonder why a lot of people are obssessed with wages of players who've been mentioned somewhere online they might be coming to City or any that have been released etc. Myself, I trust those in charge to make sensible decisions, Telling GC what he has to use in recruiting of players. Why are we always talking about this? We know our limits financially and where we are in that sphere, We know there are loads of clubs that can out-spend us but we've done pretty well so tbh its all irellevant, If a player wants to come to us, They are told what their wages will be, If they agree great, If not we both move on.

It was Troy. Jaden had been and gone by that game, he was recalled on 11th March I believe having sat on the bench six times without coming on. I remember seeing him play in a u21/reserve game where he looked on the lightweight side, even for that level, at that time.

Someone needs to have a word with Transfermarkt then, they have Jaden down!

I'm not sure anyone is obsessed. But when we've released a capable keeper because he's apparently paid too much, and when there's talk of players from higher divisions , it's reasonable in my view to question whether wages would rule out such a move.

He pulled off a number of very good saves in that match

Because wages are a determining factor to where a player will go and City are one of those clubs who are, shall we say, nearer the bottom end of the pecking order in terms of wage structure. If A Player becomes available from B Club who have a strong wage structure, A Player is more than likely going to want to keeps his wages close to what he was getting at B Club and is therefore very likely to be beyond City's budget. It really isn't that difficult to figure out.

Imo I think some are, Yep a players wage is important but to constantly speculate about any available player what they'll demand if they signed is irrelevant imo, The club know what they can offer, To me also if a player is from a higher division then I reckon they are on a good wedge, We seem to think players from lower divisions earn more than we can pay, Which is probably true but can't do anything about it.
