I've lost track of the relevant thread, but how many clubs has Shola turned down this summer? Are we really pricing him out of anything?

 

 

He contends we are over pricing him.

I used to rate Tristan, haven't seen him for the last couple of seasons though.

He and Valeron were mint for Deportivo about 4 years ago, but we all know who else was......

Despite the fact we've agreed a fee with more than one club and he's been all due to sign the dotted line only for himself to change his mind at the last minute?
