Rumour - Tyler Blackett to Wigan

by WoodleyRoyal » 21 Dec 2018 15:29

Apparently. Bit of a sideways move for him but he might jump at the chance to get back up north. Should command a fair fee too. what do we think 3 mill + in today’s market?

No great loss. I'd be amazed if we got 3million for him! Not sure how long he's got left on his contract but I'd say £750k would probably be the right sort of figure for the young man.

Average CB and a very slightly better LB. Good to have in and around the squad but as JS said, no huge loss, would imagine anything north of 1.25 million would be about right.
If it frees up funds for a proper LB I am all up for it.

£3m might be a bit much. Would be happy with £1.5-£2m

fair chance he'll go with him being ooc at the end of the year

About 1m would be about right.

Would hope this does NOT happen before a suitable replacement arrives. With the continual injuries the club are getting hit by it cannot afford to let anyone covering these key positions go,

Didn’t realise he was out of contract 1 mill is more realistic

Tyler Blackett signed a four-year contract with Reading Football Club in the summer of 2016

Think he has been one of our better players when given the chance this year - much better than he was last season and so I doubt we would let him go before the summer as we are so short of defenders right now. But the way things are going who knows?

If Tyler Blackett commands 1+ million then the entire world has gone insane.

Given the number of fit senior CBs we have at the moment this would be baffling unless there are some quick recoveries or a replacement lined up. But other than that... Something between £800k and £1.5m would seem fair. Unless Hammond were here, in which case £3m.

Doubt he's happy here. Never been a fans favourite. With the turmoil at the club probably wants out and a fresh start.

He cost us £1m, would think recouping that would be our target.

Think he’s the most improved player this season actually. Seems a stupid move when new bloke hasn’t even arrived and who may think Tyler should be a regular even with a fully fit squad.

I suppose the club is desperate to get rid of players but that cull has to start with the midfield bloat that Mr Stam created and that has been nicely augmented by Mr Clement rather than clearing out positions where the club has so many injuries and needs options.

The fact that we have no Manager or DoF and we're apparently trying to sell our only fit senior centreback is utterly baffling to me, even if I wouldn't be particularly upset to see Blackett go.

This is rather like saying "if Tyler Blackett commands £1m+ then the sky is blue".

The rumour says Wigan want to buy him, where does it say we want to sell?

He has been good at CB. I’d go as far as to say looked the best CB in the games I’ve watched this year

Imagine everyone is up for sale pretty much, but he wouldn’t be top of the list of people I’d like to see out the door
