    Can we get first dibs on Ollie Watkins then, please? Only been a fan of his since his Exeter days!

    That would need to be one very large suitcase to fit Rose, his ego and his waistline in.

    And think what carrying it will do to Clarke's back!

    They've already got a large number of loans. Disturbingly so, given Clarke's situation at Leeds.

    According to Lyall Thomas he's moved from our U23s to theirs

    Wayne Burnett's going to be called into Levy's office soon, isn't he?
    The difference between QPSpurs and Leeds is that Leeds' starting xi had three or four loanees in it every match, QPSpurs' usually only have two in Amos and Nakhi Wells (with one more on the bench) so there's more leeway

    I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest.

    I wonder what the agent get's for his hard work and free travel?

    A free subscription to Ekstrabladet, given he's been feeding them stories since June...

    Albeit minimal but we’re actually making a profit on him. Not bad for a good 6 out of 7 seasons and half a season’s contract remaining.

    Levy shoulda cashed in whilst he could. Last year he was a 70m asset.

    We paid as much for an injured barkley (a sad indictment on our dealings) and even someone like fornals, arnautovic and billing are going for the same price as him.

    70 mil last year? That was criminal!

    Yeah in hindsight we should’ve done but I was happy to keep him and let him go for free as I didn’t expect him to be so bloody useless.

    **** end to a player that’s been predominantly brilliant for the club.

    Was hoping this translated to see you in training. Sadly not!

    Nobody bid for him last year, barring Man Utd (allegedly), who he has no interest in joining.
    Should've put him up for sale the year before, if he didn't want to sign a new contract.

    A more creative solution would have been to double his wages in return for a new five year deal with a £50m release clause. That would have aligned incentives.

    Is it true he's on a relatively "modest" £50k a week.
