What I know about him from the little I've seen is that he's better than Duran but hasn't the power of shot.

In Emery and Emery staff we trust.

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?

John Percy of The Telegraph has a different view.

Although they end up at the same overall figure.

I reckon the delay in agreeing a deal was all down to how it was going to be "packaged" in terms of the up front sum, payment date(s) for the remainder, and the add-ons.

pablo_picasso above says that he did quite well at Lincoln, playing under Michael Appleton.

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.

It might be cheaper for us just to buy West Brom.

Five and a half year deal.
15m  total cost = 2.73m annual amortisation charge

Almost equals what we got for Finn Azaz, so the two deals pretty well balance out from an FFP perspective.

Given his physical profile I think Unai definitely sees a long-term Ollie/second striker backup in him.

I reckon he's going to add plus four to his goal tally in no time.
