I must be in a minority as I think he is a very good defender

I think hegazi would hold his own in a top team when called upon, maybe not as a regular starter or a star, but 10-20 appearances a season.

Some bang average players (relatively by top elite standards) particularly defenders have got away with playing semi regularly at top sides that control more of the ball / game and limit their exposure.

I still can’t see Hegazi going to Real Madrid mind but I’d rather put him on than Matip if I we’re at Liverpool for instance.

I think you're bang on.

He's better than Jonny Evans (as a good example).

Not that hard, terribly over rated central defender, was actually better at full back.

If we can get back what we paid for him, I'd take it.

In a back three maybe not, in a back four he's far too good for the championship and any premier league club with sense would go after him - I'd be amazed if he went for anything less than £15m

Shout out to Hegazi, the man is a colossus. We haven't won a single match this season when he was unavailable.

Absolute rock tonight.

Even better when you consider he ended the game in a back four of Mears Bartley and Townsend.

Best defender in the championship, I've said so all along. He's carried our defence all season.

I too have said, in other posts, that he's been one of our shining lights this season.
I think we will struggle to hold on to him next season whatever division we're playing in
