View Full Version : Suggestion: Lee grant

Don't normally do one if these but he's been great for Stoke this season. So much so he was their player of the year! However he's back to number two now behind butland.

sounds like he wants first team football and will look to leave if he doesn't get it.

Certainly not a long term solution at 34 and not my first choice but if we spunk massive amounts of cash on Sakho and still need another 4/5 signings then he'd hopefully be a more modest fee at that age and be very good for 2/3 years whilst allowing us to invest in the other areas we need for next season.

Not plan A, but a decent option for me depending on our cash situation this summer and possibly available

If we are to buy another keeper which seems likely we will go for a first choice. Lee Grant is not at that level but would be a useful squad player.

We need a top keeper not a journeyman.

As the OP said, if we do want to get Sakho then we will (almost) certainly need to get some cheaper additions elsewhere.

To be fair he has been outstanding since getting into the team at Stoke, unfortunately he was only ever going to be keeping the position warm until Butland returned.
I cant see him being welcomed by Palace fans as a First choice option, which seems unfair considering the form he had been in and would be an upgrade on Hennessey on current form, but not seen as high profile enough by some.

As I say not first choice but if it were to facilitate Sakho and the other places we need to strengthen then a significant upgrade on Wayne (unless a one season wonder of course) for a season or two.

Of course playing devils advocate on myself... Stoke might refuse to sell cheap as player of the year regardless of age but if the price is right he has been excellent this year

I am sure we will be getting another goalkeeper as i think Mandanda will leave.

Heaton would be my preferred choice but again Grant would be decent if it means we definitely get Sakho.

Lee Grant is pants. There is a reason he has spent the first 10-15 years of his career as a middle - lower Championship keeper.

Good point Latvian, I agree with your reasoning.
