Wow. Was quite impressed up at Stoke last season. Remember one bit where Townsend was trying to beat him and get a cross in, and he just stuck there, stride for stride with Townsend, and eventually Townsend just ran out of pitch!

Although DD got a new contract, I suspect he'll be out of the 25, if Chambers and Ridewald both happen

Rumours when he was about to go to Stoke that the fee was only around 10 million. Plus the fact hes only 25, good business

GreatGonzo
14-07-2017, 10:46 AM
Stoke has an option to buy on him but didn't take it up by 1 July but are still trying to get him.

Their loss would definitely be our gain and with just 12 months left the fee should not be too bad either.

If we could pull off the Cillensen deal and get a decent striker on loan we would be looking in good shape.

Martin H
14-07-2017, 11:08 AM
Top player and can't believe he is still only 25. I was gobsmacked when Stoke got him on loan but this would be a beauty of a steal if we can make it work. Would expect Stoke to come back hard on this one but hopefully the Dutch connection will be enough :)

Not sure where that leaves the Jairo deal. TBH they are Dutch and can probably play anywhere - total football and all that - but we will now have 3 Left footed LBs and 3 CBs. Damo looks an even weirder deal now. Damo probably not as 'flexible' as the others :)

We have to see some of the existing defenders move on now.

I am still unclear on when Souare is available. He looks in good shape considering but from the training videos you can't judge pace/acceleration or the amount of pain he is enduring to do it. Fingers crossed for him.

Bruno would be an awesome replacement for Sakho though.

BillyTKid
14-07-2017, 11:08 AM
Stoke were meant to be signing him for 13.4m so I presume the price will be around this level.

As with any Palace transfer rumour, will stay cautious until the he's in for a medical.

Left-sided centre back who was by all accounts pretty decent last season for a team we should be challenging. Sounds good to me.

Hopefully we'll still be in for Riderwald though due to his versatility.

But all sounding positive so far.

From a read of the Stoke board, it appears that:
- they have as much love for BMI as we do for Sakho.
- personal terms have been agreed between BMI and Stoke
- we have offered cash in full, whereas Stoke were looking at staged payments
- Stoke could still come back and match our offer
- it will now come down to whether BMI prefers Brexit loving Stoke and their Welsh manager or Remainer loving London and our Dutch manager

Well and truly would bury any hope of a Sakho return (unless this is our own last ditch arm twist), but over all I would be happy enough with Indi. Quite happy with how our business seems to be shaping up this window actually.

Well said. I, like all of us, would love to have Sakho as we've all seen first hand what a massive player he can be for us. And there's definitely a bit of an emotional connection - he's just the type of character that we love at palace.

But I think FdB and SP are making some superb business decisions (I.e. taking the emotion out of the equation). If we can transform our back 4 and keeper (which is our clear weakness) with 3/4 new players for the price of sakho, we'd be silly not to do it.

Could it also be that FdB doesn't really fancy managing a player with sakho's reputed temperament / personality ?

They had the option but sounds like it expired on Juky 1st, and it now sounds like they are trying to do a deal via addons, so I imagine the overall fee is higher now but they are offering less up front than the original option if that makes sense.

Sounds like we have just come in at the asking price.

Maybe there's still a chance that we might land Sahko on another loan too? But I'm glad that we're not spunking all our money on a fourth CB when we have bigger holes to fill elsewhere in the squad. Like you say, FDB and SP seem to be making very objective, analytical choices, like they should.

I wouldnt read too much into what FDB thinks of Sakho, theres a very strong chance the fee and wages are just too high for the amount of business we want to get done. Unfortunate but so long as the players we do bring in are the right ones it wont be a problem.

From a read of the Stoke board, it appears that:
- they have as much love for BMI as we do for Sakho.
- personal terms have been agreed between BMI and Stoke
- we have offered cash in full, whereas Stoke were looking at staged payments
- Stoke could still come back and match our offer
- it will now come down to whether BMI prefers Brexit loving Stoke and their Welsh manager or Remainer loving London and our Dutch manager

How many CBs will we have on the books if we sign both this fella and Jairo? I hope we get the both of them, but...

6 which I think is one over the right amount. BUT given that Damo is in his last year, Kelly is also our backup RB. That means we have three right footed CBs and three left footed CBs two of which won't play in those positions unless of injury or suspension.

Or was I would do in a 25 man squad. 2 in every position = 22

Then a third keeper, a player who can play at the back and in midfield and a player that can play on the wing or up front. = 25.

We tend to forget that Sakho is still injured and a regular on the treatment table after three months. He's not expected to play for a while longer. On the other hand, Stoke have signed Kurt Zouma on a very expensive loan deal from Chelsea, which plays right into our hands.

They've also gone past their 1st July option date for signing Bruno Martins Indi, and they have also increased any prospects of him not being a regular starter. Add to that, if you had the opportunity of playing Frank DeBoer or Mark Hughes, Where would you go if you were in that position?:p He's our player.

Defensively we'll look very good with the potential additions of Martins-Indi and Riederwald.

Defensive options, with players who can cover certain positions in brackets:

RB: Ward, (Kelly), (Tomkins)
CB: Dann, Martins-Indi, Tomkins, Riderwald, Delaney, Kelly
LB: PVA, Schlupp, (Riderwald) - with Souare probably out until January.

With Riderwald being able to cover CDM, and Schlupp probably able to cover left wing.

Keeper, striker, and winger in that order of preference, and we're properly good to go.

Did they? Earlier this week a figure of 13.4m was quoted for the transfer, that's despite the 25-year-old having just 12 months left on his Porto contract.

A permanent move to Stoke was expected at the end of last season after Martins Indi played all but three of 38 Premier League games during the campaign, but Potters boss Mark Hughes described negotiations as having hit an 'impasse' and the player returned to Portugal instead.

Now, just under two months later, Palace have seemingly taken full advantage.

Sensible option to pursue multiple players who hopefully won't represent too much of a drop off in terms of performance from Sakho, but will collectively cost the club the same amount of money. Much less risk as we will have more options in the case of injury or loss of form.

12.5m fee for Indi with Riedewald close to signing as well according to this.

Dom Fifield first with a scoop again...................

Yeah some of them seem to be arrogant tossers but there's supporters like that in all fan bases, including Palace. I just don't like the idea of labelling other Prem teams as shit, ever since the Sunderland debacle last season.

True, I see your point. Just reading that thread made me :veryangry

The only good thing about Stoke was a gabber night in the late 90s at The Void called North Radical Technology. This has long since finished and with Bruno being dutch as gabber is then I see absolutely no reason why he’d want to move to Stoke. #welcomeBruno

Didn't we sign Lee when he had a broken leg?

And Edgar Davids when he was blind and past it.

Maybe this is a plan to get Liverpool to accept a lower offer for Sakho


I suggested this on the Sakho thread. Unlikely but a possibility?
Make Liverpool think were signing someone else so they reduce their price a little?

Think it may also be that Sakho isn't going to be fit for a while so we're looking at others & may take another look at Sakho towards the end of the window?

Just guessing really as like everyone else i have no idea what's going on.

West Brom still hoping to sign Bruno Martins Indi and could offer 15m. Player has agreed terms for 13m move to Palace

It's really interesting that we have rumours about defenders coming out of our ears right now, but not a whisper about the forward line (leaving RLC out of it, of course).

Not saying it's anything to do with Sahko, of course.

What Wikipedia does say is that his full name is "Rolando Maximiliano Martins Indi". Now fit that into a song.

Definitely possible though WBA are shopping for defenders and he seems like the kind of CB Pulis wouldnt mind :D

If WBA do go in for him lets just use the money Pulis had to pay us back to gazump them with.

I guess the defence is more important to get sorted in terms of starting 11 positions needing filling. No Sakho has left us quite exposed at CB.

That's not to say that having 1 fit striker is not important, or a decent keeper, so I expect those to be top priority once Indi and Riderwald are confirmed if the rumours are true.

I don't disagree.

Just curious, when every man and his dog know we want to sign Sahko (but not for 30m). It's plain as day that we need another striker, but nothing on the wires about that yet. However, we're linked with three players who can play CB, who don't play for Liverpool.

I'm sure I'm wrong, but I find it interesting at least.

Didn't we sign Lee when he had a broken leg?

It was a fracture not a break, he was back in training after just 3 weeks and he only cost 1 mil. With Sakho's asking price of 30 Mil the risk is considerably greater.

It really looks like we're going double Dutch though. :eek::supergrin:

If all this is true we are the only team to have agreed both fee and terms, so i guess anyone else has until we do the medical to try and stake a claim and even then it likely comes down to the players choice. Feeling confident but we will have to see.

He's probably holding off till he's about to leave WBA and then plops that money down on a bet that he's leaving. No use paying off palace till you get a chance to make something of it.
