The level of team supposedly keeping tabs on him, we’re talking top end PL, they can start at £5m then we’ll talk.

Can’t say I’ve been overly impressed with him the couple of times I’ve seen him, yes he’s an improvement on what was there before but considering how bad our defence was that’s no great shakes.

Wasn’t really tested first half against Northampton but made two big mistakes in their opening goal and looked quite uncomfortable from there on. Against Orient he didn’t seem to understand his role in a back 5 and struggled badly before being hooked at half-time, perhaps not his fault but he didn’t look great.

Early days I suppose but talk of million pound moves is a tad premature.

For a 17 year old playing in a poor team he has done amazingly well. The potential is obvious. He is under contract beyond the end of the season (I think) so that should add to his value. Let the bidding war commence.

The Ethan Ampadu fee is the yardstick here.

So "a fee worth £2.5 million".

Ampadu only played a handful of times for Exeter, potentially Branthwaite will have more first team appearances by January than Ampadu managed in his career at Exeter.

Me too. I'm fed up of seeing the likes of Exeter, Peterborough and others get millions for their young players while our board think they are doing a great job by selling off ours for low 6 figure fees after hardly any games.

If clubs don't think he's worth millions now, keep him and develop him in the first team until someone does value him at that.

Of course I fully expect him to be sold in january for an undisclosed rumoured 250k after just a handful of appearances for us. It's what we do.

All clubs will have an idea of what bids they can get away with for lower league clubs. We will be at the bottom of the pile!

I hadn't seen Branthwaite till that pre season game v Hibs. He played at right back that night I think and you could see he was something special. Very cool and confident for his age.

He'll play for England one day!

Frank have you paid attention to league 2 transfers for the last few years ,17/18 year olds who's never player a game are fetching close to £1million , It's not regarded as pocket change.

The best sign of how good Branthwait is technically is fans were calling for him to be played at right back after that appearance against Hibs , Even though he is left footed (yes he says he's both , but he cuts onto his left to pass ) .

He 17 years old and doesn't even turn 18 until June . He's got the ability of he sticks in to be a wonderful footballer

These transfers are few and far between though Happyblue and circumstances are often different. As mentioned Ampadu was already in the Wales squad by the time he left, Wilmott had already been called up by England at different age groups. Very, very rarely does a lad play less than 10 games and get a £1m move, I’m not saying it cant happen but theyre rare.

I’m not Darren Edmondson mullen, the fact is he didn’t want them around and said so, I’m sure you’ll have heard the one about a well known homegrown player who got his agent to ring the club and enquire about a player from the youth team, to be told you can have anyone of them he’s not interested in them.
