If it's a flat 4.5 that's terrible.

Fuck me, thats a really shit price for us.

Really?

I was expecting 2-3m for him given his lack of impact here.

Maybe we could've recouped the 7m if Monaco or Marseille had been interested but they're not and below that there's hardly any decent money in France.

If Amavi had gone we could've recouped 15m for him, Veretout and Sanchez which would have been pretty good in the circumstances.

I didn't expect more. We overpaid in the first place. We were trying to sell to mid table French and Spanish clubs and I don't think they've got enough money to go much higher?

On the same day Marco Arnautovic goes for 24m.....

He's actually been a pretty good player in the premier league and so has got another premier league team with cash to burn interested.

It's unfair comparing the two, our equivalent was Downing who we got 18m for six long years ago so I'd suggest back then was a pretty good price for a player who did little after leaving us.

Same reason we can't seem to shift Gil. Unless a Spanish team is in europe there's little money to play with and most of them rely on loans.

I do think the ridiculous money in the premier league which is now filtering down to the championship makes people think all the teams in major leagues in europe are signing players for 20m and paying them 100k which is far from the case.

Heard on BBC R5Live sports news this morning the fee could rise to 7million depending on conditional add ons, which were not specified.

It is clear that in the summer  he was signed Villa were paying way too much for players brought in.

Therefore, our present team of negotiators are having to do the best they can to limit the inevitable losses on sales.

Milner, Young, Downing - all bought for a collective 26m and all sold for a collective 63m.  *note I have included Ireland as an 8m makeweight for the Milner deal.

According to Pat Murphy, there's a sell-on clause.

Ahmed Elmohamady will link up again with his former manager Steve Bruce, signing for 1m from Hull City while Jordan Veretout will move to St Etienne for 5m rising with add-ons to 7m - the same amount he cost Villa two years ago from Nantes.

There's also a significant sell-on fee if Veretout leaves St Etienne.

Villa remain in the market for one more player,possibly two.

What has he done in a Villa shirt to warrant someone paying more ?

Answer = Fuck all

We got shafted on him, just as we did/will Amavi. All fart and no shit the pair of them

I thought Pat Murphy had thrown a tantrum last season and refused to deal with Villa stories.

So we had him back for pre season, trained him, played him now sold him

Does that mean all players that have played so far in pre season are up for sale also - I hope so
