Has risen through the leagues so probably not a big time Charlie. No nonsense defensive mid with a goal in him. 26, so decent age. Left footed. Could play with Luka or, almost as importantly, defensive midfield cover for Luka that we don't currently have. Thoughts?

You raise some valid points about what he brings and i can't dispute that, but i just feel if he is to be the midfield defensive partner alongside Luka that is assuming Cabaye is leaving, then i would prefer someone who brings a bit more grit and bite, like Fabian Delph or Harry Artur, and to complement them a strong running attacking midfielder like Loftus-Cheek, would give the midfield a good balance.
But with midfield players that will no doubt be moved on, then Sam Clucas would make a very good squad addition if at a sensible fee, and is type of back up players we should be aiming for.

Dread to think how much a combo of Delph and Loftus Cheek would cost, fees and wages, but assume the latter is a loan suggestion?

The second DM would be replacing Puncheon (i.e. Latterly) not Cabaye wouldn't he?

I would say as far as fees (IF we were to buy both which i doubt) would be no more that the cost of buying Sakho. But assuming buying Delph around 10/12m and Loftus-Cheek on loan with a fee around 2m obviously wages on top, but consider when we are paying Backary Sako and Campbell (hopefully moved on) a reputed 100k p.w combined for bench warming and that only on the seldom occasion they makes the bench :rolleyes: would make anything we pay those Two good business for the quality they would bring.
I was making the assumption that should Cabaye leave, and Puncheon was on the bench then those Two would be their replacements, makes it feasible.
