Why just a loan deal? A permanent one would be better

I presume a permanent one would involve us paying him off which doesn't sound like a good idea.

I assume, correctly of course, that no other club want to pay Ojo £3k/week.

Why? If someone puts a bid in that suits is all, why would we need to pay him off? It's not like we're freeing him . 
 

will we need to pay off cosgrove if we transfer him ?! 
 

Deary me.

Interest in Ojo is bizarre.

On both sides of the border too. 

I think we can safely say that in England it's going to be from EFL1 or lower. But the EFL1 wage cap sits at an average of £1700 per player. I can't see him wanting to take a pay cut anytime soon.....nor can I envisage a club there wanting to cough up close to twice what they "should" be paying a player.

As for Scotland......who could afford the £3k/week? Outwith the cheeks who obvs won't be interested.......the Edinburgh clubs, Kilmarnock and maybe Motherwell on an individual case basis. St Mirren supposedly are paying Brophy an equivalent wage but I think they view him as a "star" striker and as such are paying him a commensurate salary. Ojo is just a bog standard midfielder. And anyway these clubs have all seen first hand that he's really done nothing in his time with us that suggests he's worth a contract on such terms anywhere else.

On balance, I think I'll believe this story about purported interest when I see the club stating that they've accepted an offer

Because as Tord says no other club will pay him 3k a week, so he will want a pay off to make up the money he is contracted to with us... or he won't leave

But they will want to pay him £3k a week on loan?

Either way we'll be paying some of his wages you'd guess.

3k a week for that cunt? laughable.

That's about 1.5k per completed pass per week.

I don't see us paying off Cosgrove this month but I agree he also carries a negative transfer value based on his performances since Dubai trip.

Given that fans will not be allowed in stadiums any time soon + the season will most likely be completed, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that we will be aiming to shift a number of players off the books sooner rather than later.

Reckon that Cosgrove will be sold this window, hopefully for a reasonable fee + add ons. Another example would be we cannot afford to retain both Ojo and McGeouch therefore stories about Ojo potentially moving make sense.

Given the current financial climate can see others going too with squad places being taken up by the younger development players (no bad thing in my book)🤔

Hopefully it's wrong, Yes.

Even say it's £1.5k a week then the Scottish clubs would still be ruled out in terms of taking him on permanently

 

edit- and this is from someone who believes mcinnes is on £900k per year before bonuses?

Our average wage a couple of seasons back was just shy of £2.9k/wk.

£3k/wk for Ojo is therefore eminently believeable.

Ojo was quite highly rated in League 1 when he played with Scunthorpe and there was championship interest in him away back then. I think interest from there will be based on his form for them as opposed to how he has played since moving up to Scotland.

I would assume the interest north of the border is from Motherwell. I posted a few weeks back when Graham Alexander took the well job that he was the manager who took him to England and was a big fan. Would assume that any move there would be likely to be a loan though.

Ojo in part exchange for Campbell would suit both parties

If that happens, would we be preparing to cash in on selling Ferguson to assist the financial situation 🤔

If no one wants to buy Cosgrove then I guess you could see us looking at selling Ferguson sooner rather than later

Most clubs certainly in our league will have to sell to cover the current losses. Celtic selling frimpong in a way proves that. Also feel huns moving early with a lot of free out of contract signings is because they are hoping/needing to sell in the summer and after a good season for them are hoping for big bids to balance the books

Why not do Logan and Ojo for Campbell + O'Donnell. Whilst O'Donnell isnt a world beater hes far better than Logan (not difficult I know)

I think If Ferguson was to leave we would be more likely to look at Ali McCann from St Joihnstone as a replacement, I would say he is closer to being the same type of player as Ferguson. Obviously would depend on how much St J wanted but if we got say 4 million for Lewis id be happy to spend maybe £0.5 to £0.75 of that on McCann as a future investment.

What good reason would Motherwell have for agreeing to that? 
Weakening themselves in a relegation fight?

No chance they’d agree to that.

Besides O’Donnell (not that he’d come to Dons apparently) is available in 5 days time for nothing.

Yip.

The huns have already said a couple will be sold in the summer to balance their books.

O'Donnell is shite. Noticed when Well played Hamilton in Robinson's last game, he bottled a few 50/50s, probably thinking about his next move
