I quite like that the club have posted a picture or two of him already on their pages. Welcoming him back into the fold and a subtle reminder he's a Brighton player.

What I hope is that he gets a decent move to a decent club and he gets the first team football he deserves.

If he stays, get's a squad number, plays the cups and and has the odd cameo in the league, that works for me too.

Not at those wages and I’m pretty sure SD would like to be playing
I really don’t think he s like that Dutch lummox whose name escapes that was at Chelski years ago
Who was a perennial bench warmer Winston Bogarde maybe ?
Just looked £40000 a week 11 appearances over 4 years

Whilst very much hoping that former works out for him, still a very good player for the right sort of cub, albeit probably in the Championship now, I really can't see him wearing an Albion shirt again.

Not a Potter player, and no room for sentiment in football, as we all know.

If Burnley sell Tarkowski, I think they'll come in and get Shane Duffy. Which would guarantee him scoring against us at least once. We should get on the blower to Chris at Forest and see what sort of deal we can strike to keep him out of the PL.

Chris, and the Forest board, will know what Big Shane can do, we certainly don't have to "sell" his abilities to them. They know where to come if they are interested, and if they can afford him of course.

We will try to get him off the payroll if possible, but maybe some sort of loan with an option to buy might be acceptable to both parties.

Totally agree. I called a while ago that Duffy would be a monster at Burnley, he’s perfect for them.

However it’s questionable if we want to help improve Burnley’s back line like that.

Glad to see he had a good game and hope its the first of many both for him and for us as we might be able to get a decent price for him.

I totally agree - my thinking is that Forest would be the ideal place to send him. Big club, a manager we have the utmost respect for, not in the same division we're in and gives the player a chance to rebuild his career again. It might be naive on my behalf, but I hope and think we'll put the player first here.

I totally agree. He would be excellent there, assuming Dyche stays. Which is why I wouldn't want us to send him there. That being said, I don't think we'd stand in his way if he wanted to make that move and the deal was right - but it wouldn't be our first choice!

Tarkowski is not a Duffy type CB though

I get the feeling that Shane will always do well for his adopted country, The Republic have always been a fairly physical team, at least under their recent managerial set up.

A simplistic way of putting it, but heading it, kicking it, and blocking it, is Shane to a tee, (with a little skill of course), and what he does best.

Just a shame they don't pay his wages, and he can't play for them every week.
