Guilbert could be important in helpung him settle.

We'll have a few French speakers in the squad, eg Traoré.

How good is his English? Do we know, for example, whether he understands the difference between ‘up’ and ‘off’?

More importantly, does he understand “deliberate attempt to play the ball” ?

What  type of midfielder is he?

He's alot like McGinn from everything I can find, high energy, closes the ball fast and tries to move the ball forward fast.
Well, according to Dean, he can play as a 10, an 8 or a 6. Whatever the hell that means.

He's played out wide for Marseille at points too so can probably play anywhere across midfield. A right footed McGinn who's stats show him winning the ball higher up the field than what McGinn does. Useful to have someone so versatile as it can help to keep the squad size down whilst still having options and giving chance for the kids to come through.
Ross Barkley replacement, that can tackle.

Don’t think so. I’m no expert on Sanson, but I think Barkley is a different sort of player - one we definitely need.

He's only 19 though Hookey, he'll get his chance. If anything, it will hopefully mean that he's not rushed in when he's not ready. He should have a season long loan in the Championship next season.

im with you there mate. Haven’t got a clue when people start talking about shirt numbers. If someone says oh he’s an 8 or a 10 or a 6, my mind just thinks Shaw, Cowans, Mortimer. If he’s as good as those three rolled into one, we’ll have some player on our hands. Look out Jack!

I love the way he runs with the ball not afraid to take players on and he sores great goals like I've said before I'm exited by him.

In our system:

Luiz is a 6, he sits deeper, breaks play up and gets us moving forward.
McGinn is an 8, he gets up and down the pitch and presses the ball.
Barkley is a 10, he stays fairly high up the pitch and his job is to link play between the midfield and Watkins.

That's massively over simplifying it but what he means is that he sees Sanson as being able to cover for all of those.

I’ve just watched the obligatory YouTube mashup of him. Without wanting to fall into that particular trap, he looks pretty fkn decent. From that he looks to me more like a cross between Barkly and McGinn. Pacy, direct and an eye for goal. Listening to Smith’s pre Burnley comments it was interesting he said that we’ve now got options in terms of how we set up and there are different ways we can go about winning games. He referenced Newcastle saying it would’ve been easy to go gung ho, but the staff felt they needed to be first and foremost solid, which I guess was why they brought in Nakamba. Great to have that option if McGinn, or Ross aren’t available. Or even to displace them on merit. Bit of a tangent here, but what really struck me about The Newcastle match was how good the shape looked both in defence and attack. Nobody getting pulled out of position or marked out of the game. If he can slot in and help us keep that, we’ve got a decent chance of European qualification this season.

That he's an Even headed player and not an Odd ball :)

Jesus Christmas mate, could you actually be any more condescending? I don't think it's possible.

I think Deano should step aside and let Footy break the news to SJM. It'll be quicker that way.

It's going to take time for Sanson to establish himself, and if as Footy predicts after putting the feelers out and doing some scouting, he does replace SJM, then we've got ourselves a very good player indeed.
