Good news. Obviously he has a lot to learn, but at 21 and 6'4" he should prove a great acquisition. I just hope our fans give him time to settle into the Premier League. Another plus, he's a local lad born in Halesowen, so he'll be well familiar with the area.

Plus Mark Harrison will have had him at West Brom as a kid.

Definitely has the potential to be a future Ballon d'Or winner, cracking bit of business.

If this ends up happening, I think it all depends on how much he is costing as to whether I think this is a good deal or not.

Anything around £8M-£10M will be reasonable.

His height will be welcome. I think he is about 6'3".

His pace & direct running will offer cover & competition for Ramsey.

If Emery sees him being able to cover Watkins, then that could be an interesting project.

I hope that he comes in like a hurricane, makes me eat my words & becomes the player that everyone thought he could be at the age of 17-18 years old.

The height of him, Kellyman & Zaniolo could be interesting late in a game too, if we are chasing...
  Bought in summer for £1m sold to us for £10m  gone up in value 10 fold in 6 months, what has he done to achieve that? This time last week I'd never heard him

Awful signing, way overpriced and not good enough.

We are clearly buying what we think he will become, not what he's showing now.

£10m for any footballer is madness, let alone a reserve but that's the market we've all bought into.

Phew, it's only eight-squillion up front.

https://theathletic.com/5238109/2024/01/30/morgan-rogers-aston-villa-transfer-2/

The Athletic reporting it's £8m up front (Some tat, two-bit northern club get 25%), plus £7m in add-ons.

I think £8M is decent enough. For the potential...

If we end up paying the extra £7M, then he will have been a success.

If these numbers are accurate, then fair play.

Thats a good deal & congrats must go to the negotiation team (or whatever title they have).

I watched him a few times when he was out on loan with Brennan Rogers. I cant remember the club though. Lincoln maybe? Shrewsbury? I cant be arsed to check...

He looked decent enough to me & thought that if he can kick on, with that physicality to go with the reasonably decent pace & a good touch, that he could be a decent player in a few years.

He never massively kicked on from those days, in my humble opinion.

Although his League Cup numbers are decent...

He seemed to force it through by telling Boro he wanted to leave.

David Ornsein

Aston Villa reach agreement with Middlesbrough to sign Morgan Rogers. £8m + £7m add-ons. 25% sell-on to Man City. 21yo attacking midfielder to travel today & take medical tomorrow. 5.5yr deal (2029)

I wonder if some of the delay was Boro trying to pass on the sell on clause so that they got the full fee rather than Man City taking a cut?

This has the feel of a Graham Taylor Mk1 kind of signing, and that's no bad thing at all.  Best of luck Morgan, seize this opportunity with both hands.

Can he catch a lift with the Newcastle team on their way down so he can be on the bench tonight? We might need him.

So FFP-wise, he's going to cost us about £1.4m plus wages this season. And we apparently got £2.5m for Finn Azaz.
