18m for a player who doesn't want to be here - yes please! Next!

Agreed, he has some quality but he’s not set the world on fire for us, happy to replace if we get £18m provided we have the right replacement to come in.

Where has it been reported that he doesn't want to be here?

Wasn't it reported earlier in the window that he was happy to move on but that he wouldn't rock the boat because of how the club backed him during the Bong incident.

Always liked Jay as a player and I don’t think we have seen the best of him either. I think he’s still capable after his injuries and could see him doing a decent job elsewhere in the premiership. If his heart isn’t it in I would let him go though for £18m.

Let him go , replace him with someone younger and hungrier ( before anyone asks I don't know who) and when we go up and Burnley go down we can wave.

Somehow I think if we do sell J-Rod for 18 big ones we won't see it recycled back into the club on replacements,hope I'm wrong

So he is allegedly pleading to be allowed to go to Burnley - despite our club giving him his chance after his injuries and despite the club standing by him during the FA race enquiry.

Let him go as he is not that good anyway.

I agree with the majority, let him go. I rated Rondon much more highly and apart from a couple of games, I’ve seen nothing to suggest he has the quality he may have once had.
Line up a quality replacement now and grant him his wish on the proviso a replacement is found. 18 mil (if true) is way too much to turn down for an aging player and in my opinion he lacks sharpness.

OK the club has been good to him regarding the race issue  why wouldn't they.
I can understand him wanting to leave Premier more money and for me the most important playing for the team you supported as a kid.

My guess is that he’ll go for £18m, maybe with an extra ‘add on’, and the cheque will be made payable to a certain Mr Lai. Our strike force will be Gayle and HRK lol.

Take £18m for him. He doesn’t want to be here. We can get two decent players for that price. Use the money to buy another striker and a midfield creator.

If they are that desperate ask for Chris Wood to be involved , that would test them.

We have to accept £18 million, we have a more than adequate goalscorer now in Gayle and hopefully we can use this money to get 2/3 player in. Woods, Maddison and a target man for example.

We've been told all summer that we have replacements lined up for when our players leave so lets see what we have up our sleeve. There's no way we will stick with just HRK and Gayle.

Also don't buy this desperate to join his boyhood club stuff, he had the chance to rejoin Burnley last summer but we offered him more.

There is no way we should stick with HRK and Gayle but we have seen this before. 18 Million is a good price for him.

As they appear to be buying Vydra as well they may well agree to part with Chris Wood. It would be a case of two players returning to their former clubs

I'd let him go for £18m.

Should be able to bring in two very adequate strikers for the championship at that price.  There's at least one going spare at Leicester.  Not sure about Yvdra and Gayle... too similar.  Anyhow, as long as we spend the money effectively and HRK doesn't get near the 1st team £18m is fine by me.

Too late in the day to be selling him now.  Burnley knew the price months ago.

Old stories. Lots of ifs, maybes and could

was about to say, journalism at it's finest that isn't it  :D

I'm undecided on Jay Rod, £18m is a lot to turn down but would we re-invest £10m+ on a replacement?! I'd like to think so but would we?! We'd need to

Agreed, wouldn’t sell no matter what they offer, who we going to get in to replace him this late? Vydra may have been the one but he is going to Burnley now

Like JRod but would sell for 18. When we have tried to be tough on prices and hold onto players it has usually backfired (Evans, Saido recent examples). May not get a better bid than that for a 29 year old. The biggest issue in this transfer of any other is will we reinvest the money?
Speaking of money, where has ours gone? :)

.     How about a cheeky bid for Chris Wood if they get Vydra . Similar deal to the Gayle move
