The article says twice that we just want cash, it is very contradictory and this is the third swap deal that Nixon has dreamt up, the LT says that any deal for Idah would likely be a loan anyway.

There is no way that we cant even spend a small fraction of that money on a permanent signing. We are surely not 13m (20m take Newcastles cut) over FFP rules, we need a permanent replacement and it will be dreadful if we dont get one. Its impossible to see anything other than a dog fight with a team full of kids and loanees this season. 

Yes but 15mil plus a permanent replacement in Idah would be ideal. 

We are losing 20 mil per season so looks well over 39 million over 3 years allow under FFP.

I've said all along he'd end up going the day before the season starts and that seems to be about right now.

If we even bother with a replacement I'm almost certain it would be a loan move.

Armstrong only became a useful player once Dack was out of the equation, all we can hope for is that we now see a similar knock on effect and either SG or Diaz take the reins. That's about as much positivity as I can muster on the subject.

A low scoring (more than likely) team with a leaky defence only points to one thing sadly, buckle up folks.....

How can Norwich value Idah at £5m...then Dolan is the same value?

Idag has scored three goals up to date.

 

Strange one.

You can't compare the two, Idah is a quality player with huge potential and Dolan isn't anywhere near that. Considering the circumstances we find ourselves in this would be a very good deal.

Is anyone else a bit gutted that we’re about to make our record sale and not a penny of it will go back into the squad?

When you see what Spurs did (Bale), Norwich (Maddison) and now Villa (Grealish) are doing whilst making silly money sales, and compare it to what we will do, it does just compound all of the misery of the past 11 years.

I’d ask for £20m plus Idah on a perm and offer them a sell on fee. Same with Southampton and Obafemi.

The full £25m is a strong possibility now though.

Mate Ings left for 25 Million.Armstrong is nowhere near as good.We will not get 25 million.

Also let's not forget this story is coming from Alan Nixon

Ings is nearly 30 with no resale value. I think Arma is worth £25m and the market will decide it either way!

If it allows us to tie down Brereton, lenihan, nyambe and maybe Rothwell, I'll settle for it. For me the biggest issue over recent years and why we're in this mess is a lack of player trading. Raya aside, we've not any significant transfer fees coming in, and when you lose money like we do, that's the one thing to keep you  running. Buy cheap, sell high, repeat.

Mowbray told the LT that he expects none of the Arma money to come back to the squad.

I suppose the wider issue is we’ve spent the Arma money before selling him, and for the most part wasted it.

I disagree no championship player who has never been tested in the premier League and who only has a year left on his deal and wants to leave is worth 25 million.

I do not believe that Southampton will pay the same money for Armstrong as they got for selling Ings.

So if we get a £5m player as make weight surely we have to give £2m cash to Newcastle. He would be part of the profit so 40% due ?

Can't see anything other than a full cash sale with nothing re-invested.

Nope, only profit in cash counts as far as I am aware.

The players Spurs signed with the Bale money that summer were absolute dog though... The only one that was decent was Eriksen... Potentially Lamela but he was hot and cold.

I believe the transfer of the other player actually counts as a separate 'transaction'.

If  Rovers know they re selling Armstrong they should line up a new striker, maybe a top one from league one or two as Brentford done previous seasons.

But that would show imagination, planning and forethought, something Mowbray lacks

Almost seems to be excitement from Rovers fans on social media about who we’ll get included within the Arma deal. Do they know we’re losing the only bloke who knows how to score goals at the club? 

The club are hundreds of millions in debt and continue to haemorrhage cash. I take no joy in seeing Armstrong go but we need this to at offset some of the losses. Clubs at this level rely on the occasional big sale to keep things ticking over and we haven’t had one in years. 

It’s a shame that very little/if any will get reinvested in the squad but that just shows how grim things are looking financially. This needs to happen.

Three clubs chasing Armstrong, this seems to hot up. Surley we will see Brereton and Gallagher starting upfront on saturday.

Wasn't it Nixon himself who mentioned the 3 club rule regarding transfer speculation...
