We bid, Norwich declined

Unsurprisingly Fulham accepted our similar offer for Aluko

Yeah, I think we needed to go a couple mil higher for Oliveira, who was exactly what we needed, so we decided to save money by massively overpaying a little less for a player who wasn't even remotely what we needed and was renowned as show pony who didn't deliver.

And he turned out to be a clueless show pony who didn't deliver.

I bet Norwich regret not selling now though. They didnt make much money off him in the end.

Yeah turned out badly for everyone - Norwich, us, Aluko, Oliveira....

The only ones laughing were Fulham who couldn’t believe their luck

To be fair, they wasted their profit on Aluko on the likes of Rui Fonte, Zambo Anguissa, Seri, Kamara, the list goes on. Not sure they should be the ones laughing

And now we have Sheff Weds fans laughing so hard that we’ve massively overpaid for Joao. I suspect we haven’t paid anything like the quoted £5m until we win the Premier League and Joao scores the winner in the next World Cup final

In hindsight, I don't think Norwich are complaining either. Promoted with 25 goals from a free transfer signing.
