Club must rate him to give him contract so quickly, good luck to the lad last winger we had through was Matt Jansen here’s hoping he can turn out to be as good.

Done ok when he came on the lad. Looked up for it.

There was one attack when Devitt took the ball off him just as he looked like he was cutting inside to make room to shoot.

I had to leave early yesterday and I saw Kavanagh leaving on my way out so maybe he's doing some scouting now and maybe came to look at him and some others.

Kavanagh looked alright arrogant shit.

When we were hawking about for a new manager to replace Curle - absolutely every person was scrutinized in the directors box, apart from Kavanagh, I remember JP dismissing his presence straight away as a replacement to Curle :D

Congratulations to JP and his missus by the way on the birth of his daughter - good stuff :)

Anyone Else Heard McCarron to Leeds rumour?
Suggested fee £300K with £200K after 10 apps. Also loan back.
Can't see any semblence of truth in it, as not sure he has made any impact has he? Not sure why they would loan him back.
Far more likely to be a crude attempt to generate interest in him by DH.

Yeah, figures did seem odd. Someone from youth football with contacts at the club.
As I say, looks like DH trying to generate a sale to me.

Holdsworth talks about the trialist week and mentions Dixon, McCarron and Gnahoua working closely with the physio, so he must have been, but I don’t remember it ever being mentioned last season either.

If they do sell him for whatever price they should demand 50% for his next move,a team like leeds could ask for 10 million if a premier club want one of their players.

Exeter sell their best young players for almost £2 million, Leeds should be bidding from 7 figures if they want him and we should also insist on a healthy sell on clause..

If he’s worth 250k now after a few starts and a number of sub appearances, how much could he be worth with another season or half season and maybe some goals under his belt.

This is about how short sighted or not the club are. I suspect they will cash in if an offer of 6 figures comes in, but perhaps they should wait for the right time like as mentioned above Exeter do.

Our record transfer fee received is still the £1.5m for Matt Jansen. Admittedly we haven't had any young players with his levels of potential since then, transfer fees have inflated massively, but £1.5m is still our record. Seems plenty of clubs around our level receive a lot more than we do for young starlets...

Didn't Knighton pocket most of the Jansen fee 'allegedly'. I seem to remember most of the contracted players at the time were owned by him and not the club.

It’s hard to get more than £1.5 million when you haven’t got anyone worth £1.5 million. Cant see us getting anywhere near that for McCarron but hope we get a good sell on fee just in case.
