Good luck to him.

Really, all of them? Last thing we need is another major squad overhaul like last summer. No reason why Snodgrass, Collins or possibly even Valencia cannot continue. In particular Collins was starting in the first team regularly in the last 3 months of the season.

Cheers pezza

Is Nordtveit the 'interesting' potential departure you mentioned or is that someone else?

So we DO have a transfer window budget now then.

£4 million.... it's £4 million.

No we didn't, that was his wages.

Valencia reportedly off to Mexico for £6m, bought for £12. Another cracking piece of business.

Savio got a great assist for Collison's goal against Man City IIRC :D

Wellington Paulista & Pablo Barrera.

Two infinitely worse signings for us.

As others have mentioned, was played out of position and never looked above average.

Good luck to him.

Tends to happen when you sell squad players, unless you'd rather we sell Lanzini, Obiang, Cresswell, Reid, Kouyate, Sakho, Antonio, Masuaku for significantly more than we paid for them just to highlight the good business?

Barrera was pretty dire

Not sure we can judge Wellington Paulista though, poor bloke never kicked a ball and it was only a loan?

Fat Boy Benni obviously makes the cut

So that's Tore, Calleri, Zaza and now Nordtveit from last summer all gone already, have I missed anyone? That's what happens when you get sh*t freebies and loans. No indication so far that this window will be any different!

I suppose this is quite sensible really, creating space in the squad and freeing up wages.

Well getting rid of the players who aren't good enough is a good way to start anyway. The improvements can come after.
