He's going to be injured until October.

Not that there's a solid reason to sell either, particularly given how little impact Diaby being sold would have on FFP. While Kamara would be pure profit, he's a fantastic player.

It might come to something, but I'd prefer to make money out of non-core players if possible (if needed) Emi, Torres, Konsa, Dougie, Kamara, McGinn, Bailey Watkins must stay.

Digne would be a good one. Get decent profit and clear big wages. One of Mings or Carlos, Beundia perhaps.

Carlos was a poor signing , £26m for a 29 year old who is going to have little resale value

Yeah he's a good player. Point remains we may be forced to sell one of our better players to raise money . Selling Chambers and Dendonker might not cut it .

Seems some are very quick to give up & propose selling the best players…how about we try behaving like a big club and just ignore it.  Punishment is 6 points next season, will lose more points if we just flog the best players

We won’t be forced to, we just take the punishment IF these reported figures are right that is

Can't we just sell Diaby to the Saudis?

I still think there's far more to come from Diaby. 90% of the fanbase wanted Bailey gone after his first season and now look at him.

Diaby was excellent first six weeks and then I don't know what happened, lost all momentum in his game bar the odd decent finish.

Whenever I see us needing to make a big sell to meet FFP I just can't help feeling it's going to be Ramsey at some point.

Would be tough cashing in on another academy boy done very good with potentially so much more to come but at the same time he's either been injured or getting up to speed for most of this season and we've been top 4 without him so don't think the sale would hurt us as much as say Luiz.

Kamara will struggle to play again in 2024 so he's going nowhere.

This pretty much means Digne will go in the summer given the wages he's on.

Kieran Maguire knows the subject more than just about anyone.

Disturbing if true.

He does, but when he was on that pod a few weeks ago he sounded like he had Garth Crooks-like knowledge of the Villa situation.

Just ignore it yeah that sounds like a well thought out plan.

Exactly, he might have an inkling of numbers but he won’t have any knowledge of any discussions betw Villa and the PL etc or any of the mitigations put forward if indeed we have breached anything

You certainly don’t create a ‘3m & Josh Onomah’ situation by selling quality at discount prices.

Dendonker to Zed FC for 50m :-)
