Gone to Chelsea as expected:
Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the striker David Datro Fofana while Reece James is set to be out for up to a month after aggravating a knee injury
Actually, there is no way prospects will get the chance to develop at Chelsea like they would at Brighton. Once he gets no game time we can use him as an example of why you SHOULDN'T join Chelsea, similar to Salah, KDB, Zouma etcObviously on Potter and Winstanlys radar after being spotted and looked at by us. Expect a couple more of our prospects to be stolen by the scummy lot and then our new prospects wont be on their radar so it'll drop off.
As per...oh anything that gets written in The Athletic. Barber might as well have his own column in the Athletic and cut out the middle man.To be fair to Naylor, Paul Barber said the same when he was on the Albion Roar pod a few weeks back, so I'm assuming Naylor is just towing the club line.
Fofana offered on loan as makeweight as part of Chelse'a Fernandez bid.
So this guy's Chelsea career has gone the way most on here predicted.
If Chelsea do manage to sign Caicedo, I wouldn't be surprised to see him used as a makeweight in the deal.
He's still only 20 and is so much better than he's shown at Chelsea.
I loathe Chelsea as much as many on here, but buying players and then loaning them out quite quickly is also something we've done quite a bit of!The most annoying thing about this is that you just know he’ll be out on loan by August, probably for 2 or 3 years before signing for West Ham or the like.
And in fairness, they are very good at it, probably the best certainly in England over the last 10-15 years when it comes to money made from academy products or appearances in first teamI loathe Chelsea as much as many on here, but buying players and then loaning them out quite quickly is also something we've done quite a bit of!
