Edinburgh Evening News saying a 500k development fee would be due to Motherwell for Campbell. He's confirmed he's leaving Motherwell. Personally can't see Hearts, Hibs or Aberdeen writing a cheque for that. Likely go down south to sign for English giants Luton Town. 

Of course the Edinburgh Evening News could be wrong.

He could also be signed by Atlanta and then loaned to us ;)

The Luton manager strongly denied any interest in him the other week after the Retard printed that they were in for him

I agree nobody up here is paying that for him.....except if they sold another player themselves to fund it. Ferguson for example

Should have kept the McCrorie money for Campbell far better midfielder although he cannot play at the back like Ross. !!

Jimmy Dunne was total class. His positional play. Aerial ability. Tackling. Pace. Comfort on the ball. Played LCH for us although right footed. Didn't show. 

Him and Souutar plus one other in a back 3 would be 👍

On our fans wish list but got to be honest. A bench player for an established EPL outfit, he'd get 10k plus a week in the Championship if his agent is any good. Saying that, went to Fleetwood and chased out by Barton. Think for sharing his views on Barton too widely. 

If he did come up here, would be irate if Aberdeen got him and Budge, Robbie and Savage watched that happen. 

Not convinced about the 10k a week. After Hearts, he didn't command a regular game at Sunderland and again he was in and out at Fleetwood where it was Harry Souttar who was the one who got the rave reviews.

Dunne is 23 now (and will be a couple of months short of 24 by the time next season starts) so there shouldn't be a fee involved as it is a cross border transfer. Can't see when his contract expires though.

My only reservation is that he's a Premier League player and will have wages that reflect that status, even if he has only racked up a grand total of 6 appearances for Burnley in that time (he has had 5 loans and made a total of 88 appearances for those teams). You would imagine that he's not going to get another contract with Burnley so he might well consider top end SPL a better career option than lower Championship or EFL clubs. But I think he'd be asking for wages that place him around the same as Lewis gets, perhaps  even more

 

Confirmed in the local news a few days ago that he still hasn't signed a new contract and they will get compensation if he goes to an English club. Just wasn't sure if the loophole had been closed on cross border signings going for free.

Lets not write off McCrorie. Honking 2nd half to the season but if gets back to earlier form we won't have much to worry about

I think Aberdeen would spend 500k on the right player. Unfortunately we are very heavy on centre mids and actually think we would struggle to persuade him to come to Aberdeen. Could also see Hibs making a move if they are to win the Scottish cup.

Devlin is an absolute disaster and should not be getting another contract. Not even sure he is a top six player. Should be sent back to Hamilton ASAP

Unfortunately this is the case.

When he was fit (which wasn't often) he had a really good spell for us, and he made the Scotland squad at one point. I would have preferred that Devlin as he was a good player.

However, we don't have that version any more, and that version will never return.

He isn't worth another contract. AT ALL.

I’d rather we spent £500k on a centre forward (if we do have that amount of cash to spend on a player).

We should absolutely be spending, if we can , £500k on Campbell as the lad will be worth four to six times that in a few years. This should be our model.  Invest to gain quality for a few years, sell on for a higher fee down the line after we have helped develop great young talent.   Do it several times over and our reputation will bring us quality young players who can see a club progressive in developing careers.

I suppose if they sell Nisbet he would be easily affordable for them.

Griffiths for fuck all, Campbell for £500k & £2m change.

Good deal.

Did they not turn down about £2.5m in January?

Wishful. I still wouldn't rule out one of the Glasgow two picking him up. Seeing if he can handle the step up. If not, selling him for more than they spent on his development fee. 

Kickback seems convinced we've three prominent signings just waiting to be revealed. To turn around the disdain for Budge and Neilson it's gonna have to be Campbell and Dunne level quality. Instead I think it'll be one of the Inverness youngsters and a couple of Savage gambles from down south. 

I think Hibs will be in for Kerr. Even if Porteous stays. And if Nisbet goes, probably Shankland. 

There's limited available talent in Scotland to satisfy Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs squad needs. We'll be exploring Ireland again after McEneff. After years of piss recruitment, Savage needs to deliver for us in his first proper window. 

Agents will offer the same players to Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs. It's about where each club feels they need to invest. CH and CMF our two most needed positions.

Some bloke on P & B saying we’ve offered a contract to Marvin Johnson, who’s coming out of contract at Middlesbrough.

Ex-Motherwell, left winger, but 30 now.

Probably nonsense.

Are we yet to be linked with any exciting young players since Glass' arrival? Seems to be quite alot of "experience" in the squad already when you look at the remaining contracted players and those confirmed to be joining in the summer.

He was decent 6 years ago. You’d get a good 2 years out him at 30

I think it was reported as £3million from Birmingham, exactly the same time as we were tanning them for £2million for Cosgrove. Nisbet wasn't a bit happy about it getting turned down.

What you say would be a fabulous deal.....and why I think Griffiths will end up at Hibs rather than us. With £3m in the bank, they could afford to push the boat out a bit on wages for Griffiths and as I have said before....he's a Hibs fanatic anyway and he can join them with no need to move house if he doesn't want, Glasgow to Edinburgh is an easy daily commute

Would have to assume they will get more than 3m now for him if they were offered that in Jan. especially if they win the Scottish cup and have that 3-4m from European football. They won’t be in a bad position.

The reason the £3m was turned down was it was all in drips and snotters based on appearances, performance, etc. It wasn't £3m in the bank.
