Louis Moult, Billy Bodin - whoíve both had long term injuries similar to Conroy.

Jayden Stockley on loan

Where did you get that impression that we will be bringing in players 23+ yrs who we will have to pay the wages of?

Iím not saying itís impossible because we did it last year for Grant and Doyle, but not much noise out of the club this year has given me cause for optimism that we can afford to in Jan

How about Jack Marriott?

Out of favour Derby player on loan at Sheff Wed but seemingly not part of plans there. Jewell could still have some Derby contacts knocking around. Doubtful but just thinking of who said attacker could have been?

Doesn't mean Town would be as attractive a proposition now and if anything it would seem like a move to a higher L1 club as I don't see how he fits into Sheff Weds plans now they seem to have turned the corner.

Didn't realise Aden Flint was on loan at Sheff Wed too.

What makes you think we can afford his wages?

I think there has been a bit of crossover/lost in translation. I asked who might the striker have been that was offered to and subsequently declined by RW. I then asked if it was possible the striker/forward was still up for availability via Jewell but this time to JS.

I think Aud is just saying who he thinks the player might have been not necessarily who Town are definitely targeting now. So we're kind of guessing that. Easy to mistake for a current rumour if not reading back Smiley

If it's on loan then quite possible depending on the agreement. However, I refer you to my reply above  Cheesy

You either get loans for game time and they are free (unless you donít play them) or you get loans to get experienced players off the wage bill and so pick up the cost.

The suggestion of Jack Marriott infers we have £500,000 available for cover the cost of his wages (note. We donít).

How much does Jack Marriot earn?
Do Derby want 100% of his wages off their budget? What is their budget?

I get the availability bias - suggesting players youíve heard of despite the million to one shot of them coming here.

Just like you Iíd never heard of Reg, benda, Yates etc and if Jewell gets it right then it will be players of this ilk we might get in Jan, not 27 year olds on £18k a week

Like I said, you've missed the point of this opening discussion and now taking it out of context...and literally.

To reiterate, we were talking about who the player might have been offered to Richie Wellens. That's what we are guessing. Not who it could be now as it's evident a lot has changed since then. However, I did suggest that whoever said player is (and Jewell has a good relationship there) it could be possible that whoever the player is/was, may still be available.

Ahh but £18k a week is not necessarily true. Derby were one of the clubs that took a 50% wage deferral and they apparently have not paid players for December (yet) but let's say JM is on £9k per week and Town we're to pay Derby £3k of that. What we're Doyle, Doughty (and currently Grant) on?

Despite what we might think, several footballers have taken wage cuts this season compared to their normal earnings. I think that is quite across the board, especially in the EFL. Plus, I can't see Kelly Roos, Joseffson and Duane Holmes still being on less than Marriott.

Also, if we're going on that basis then there is also zero chance of Will Grigg signing. Weren't Town going to offer to pay £5k a week for him during last season

That's what we're discussing Jimbo Smiley and the possibility that they MIGHT still be available to Town (although things have changed drastically since).

I thought so but couldn't remember if the players name has been mentioned or not😁
