Transfer rumours, targets & new signings

Considering it was a 3 year deal, I would be shocked if Conlon didn't have a 'higher division release clause' in his contract which can be triggered. It makes little sense for a lad of his abilities to tie himself to us for 3 years without a get-out if a better opportunity comes knocking.

I'd certainly look at Ryan Loft. He has always looked a threat when I've seen him.

Where have Colchester got £50k from? Have they sold anyone recently?

I know £50k is hardly breaking the bank, but it's unusual for L2 clubs to pay a fee for a player.

Sorry no names, just a lot of hear say from a few saying there will be a lot going on this January, and there will be some nice surprises. Start the rumour mill! emoji23.png

It's nice that we've actually got a recruitment plan and actually scout players now.

Recruitment previously just always felt like someone would phone us up offering a player and we'd just take it from there.

I'm enjoying how proactive we are in that respect!

Sorry, and I hope I’m wrong, but I just can’t see us being busy in what is always a very difficult window, most likely made more difficult by COVID, although I guess it depends on what we define as busy.  Maybe if we manage 3 or 4 players in and a similar number out, which is feasible, it would fulfil the criteria.  I still think it’ll be difficult to recruit, all clubs will have been looking at basically the same pool of players, although the fact we didn’t plunge straight in for a free agent forward when we needed one, weeks ago, does suggest something was already organised on the incoming striker front, and we know DC and CG have already alluded to this.

Anyway not long to wait now.  Fingers crossed.

Preston and Blackpool tend to buy good talent from L1 and L2 so I could see someone like that bidding say £500k + add ons?

Preston signed Ben Whiteman from Doncaster for £1.6m who admittedly was a standout player in L1, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility we could get a good fee.

I’d think £1m plus for TC in todays market wouldn’t be beyond reason, unless there’s a lower release clause trigger.

For me the bigger worry now would be getting Gibbo signed up sooner rather than later.

Imo and i could be obviously wrong but i would say that Conlons release clause will be less than 500k

If a clause is met then it will be down to the player,one thing i aren't sure on is if you can agree/ask for add ons and a sell on once the clause is met(if there is one of course)

I can only see that kind of value after the 1st year. In other words the clause is only activated if we are still in L2.

You can add Peterborough to that pool. 😊
