yeah wtf i thought he was mid 20s.

on an unrelated note, i'd lick dyche's rim clean if it meant we could sign him

I'd rather put 15M on Pickford myself.

Sounds like bullshit to me.

Is this the club's new transfer system to save on costs?

Would love Heaton. Solid keeper.

He's not worth anywhere near 15m though. Probably about 6-7m max at his age.

Proper goalie.

Not wishing to put a downer on this but why would he drop a league to sign for us next season? :p

He's worth that to Burnley. How do they replace him for less. Can't see this happening

Massive yes. Burnley's best player by a mile and would be a huge upgrade for us. Can't see it ever happening though.

If we stay up.. and it's a big IF... then he would be a very good signing.. but it's the sun.. so bullshit

Played an integral role for them since Dyche took over. Agent pushing for a payrise? Can't see we'd splash out that much on him, personally - which is no slight on his ability.

Proven keeper in this division and rarely has a really poor game. We will get a top 10 keeper with him.

He was the one a lot of us who were not ITK experts called for the last two summers.

I think Pickford is going to turn out to be very average. Seen loads of goalies excelling behind awful defences over the years. Granted, he makes some good saves, but I don't think he is going to be that good,

If we can't get Pickford he would be ideal and a brilliant signing.

He'd be kissing goodbye to his England career, besides it's in the Sun.

I actually tend to agree with you.

Dyche's rim is right down there with the rims I'd least like to lick. Almost anyone would be above him on my list.

Heaton is a top keeper but he isn't coming.
Pickford is not the answer.

Begovic would be better.

I rate Tom Heaton very highly. Even for that price he will still have 4 or 5 years at the top.

I'm a man willing to get down and dirty for the cause, and if that means cleaning Dyche's rim with my tongue then so be it.

Yes, so did I, would never have guessed Heaton was 31.

Would not moan if we signed him but the estimated 15m for a 31 year old seems a lot.

Dare I say it, if a club in European competition was not interested in the Summer or competitive enough with terms - easier said than done but Joe Hart is a year younger than Heaton and the fee wont be too different to 15m. He has his spacey ways and The Hen is better with his feet, but you cant argue with Hart's clean sheets and he has presence & prowess inside his own box. Need to keep our current squad and Manager together first, mind

You could well be right, Gabor Kiraly looked brilliant for us in the 2004/05 season in the Premiership.

I want Pickford but having seen this today...

Arsenal, Everton, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and West Ham are monitoring Sunderland's English goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who could move for about 25m. (Telegraph)

However, Sunderland want more than 30m for 23-year-old keeper Pickford. (Times - subscription required)

...Id settle for Heaton :sob:

(Also 30m wtf, Sunderland can f right off...)

We need a main first choice proven keeper like Heaton or Begovic plus adequate backup who might be from abroad plus a youngster. Injries happen. Pickford is too costly for what he might offer, Butland would be worth paying a lot for.

Pickford is overhyped imo.

Heaton would be unreal

Way out of our league, next England keeper. Daniel Bentley is a good shout, but Heaton or Begovic are quality.
