Anyone know if there is a recall clause in Olies loan deal?

Asking for a friend  ;D

Yes there is and tell your friend he can buy him for yellow sony Walkman and bag of mouldy carrots.

But, if he wants to negotiate tell him we'll accept just a mouldy carrot.

I wish we could be rid of him for good this month so we had some extra funds and wages at our disposal but nobody is stupid enough to pay out for the useless lump

Yeah, £15million was an absolute joke in today's market.  I've got a feeling Mr Pulis had a big say in this, but then he's better at assessing defensive players. Think we'll have to take a financial hit on this one and get him off our wage bill.

Seems to be playing mainly as a sub at the moment, although he did get to play at the Camp Nou last month vs Barcelona.

Awful signing in the end, worst possibly in our clubs history.

I have just typed up a post about the fee for Jarod Bowen to read this and realise how debilitating making big mistakes in the transfer market can be for a club like us.

 He is not tearing up trees for Alaves who are in the lower reaches of La Liga and no doubt will land back with us this summer without much prospect of unloading him and 2 years left on his contract. At some point I think we just bite the bullet and buy him out and go our separate ways.

As an aside in other La Liga news Allan Nyom is playing regularly for 5th placed Getafe who are challenging for a Champions League spot. I am not quite sure what to make of that interesting fact.

Putting FFP impact aside, I’d happily take £3m now for Burke and see that money utilized on the wages of a couple of top loan strikers for the rest of the season!

I think we probably have taken the hit in the accounts with a write down on his book value. I'd take £3m in a heartbeat the difficulty is finding a club to pay even that. Bit part players for clubs in the lower reaches of La Liga don't go for that sort of money and that is an issue before one takes into account his wages and I shudder to think what they might be like.

Short extract from the Spanish Sports paper Noticias Deportivas Falsas via Google translate

Just over 17,000 fans witnessed what some are calling the miracle at the Mendizorrotza when Oliver Burke on loan from West Bromwich Albion scored his first goal for El Glorioso in a comfortable win 2:1 win against Eibar. Burke starting his second game in succession for Alaves where he had become the best player on the squad largely because he hadn't played a strategy which seems have served his career well at his previous clubs WBA, Leipzig and Nottingham Forest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8KhN2fBYdQ)

Commenting after the game coach  Asier Garitano "I am delighted for Ollie I have to confess I played him mainly just to stop people asking why I hadn't played him because he plainly is the best player at the club I mean you have seen the YouTube video right? Now I don't know what to think. **** me he doesn't do that in training

Wow I mean wow.

Let them have him. Just get back something. Anything.
A bag of washers would do to get him off the wage bill

Just to manage everyone's expectations I'd check the sell by date on the tins of beans. At the best of times smaller la liga clubs have barely got a pot to pee in and these are not the best of times.
