Clickbait links to the Luton lad, Justin James, or James Justin, whatever. £7.5m, seems a steep cost.

He's been offered to clubs throughout Europe apparently - and in other news Terry to Middlesboro as manager doing the rounds.
Given that Lampard has done a pretty good job at Derby this season, I guess this is no great suurprise; to see another Championship team seeing Terry as a potential manager. The way it goes.


I'd add that we would miss his premier league experience, given he's really the only one with it.

I can't see him leaving just yet.
He certainly won't leave if we go up

Maybe we should give Micah another contract for his PL experience.  ;D

I think this lad is gonna be a big star, could be a steal, or could be bullshit.

Every man and his dog sniffing around.

£7.5m for talented English players is good value alas.

All links are guesswork until we know what division we're playing in next season.

If we were to win next week then I would be very surprised if we paid £7.5 million for a kid with potential from League 1.  I suspect that we'll be trying to bring in a couple who have proved themselves in the PL.

Who was his agent, was it his brother?

Wasnít it just some mate of his? Thanks for the memories which also unfortunately includes him trying to get out of here to Spurs after one season. I donít have much or any sympathy for him in how his career has panned out.

James Justin, where did the figure of £7.5 million come from??
Valued on transfermarkt at £23K. And valued at £5 million in other clickbait reports.
Also saw via AVFCnewsnow, that El Ghazi will cost us over £5 million, when 3 weeks ago several reports stated that Lille were going to let him go at the end of the season, as his contract ends, so would effectively cost us nowt.
I tend to look at the clickbait as just that, and will believe any new signings, when they are announced on the club website.

Looks like Luton have accepted our bid along with others

I hope we get him, can play both flanks and would also annoy a few of my Luton supporting mates.
