It is quite tricky. Will 1 mil now make a big difference? What will it get us? We are doing well right now and have strengthened our squad with two "artists" and might be signing Bell. With 1 mil we can maybe get a decent winger, but you dont want to change to many things in the january window. We must assume that Payne, Armstrong and Bell are starting 11 material.
Talent management is always a game of "what ifs" and "maybes". A club like Derby is probably happy they didn't sell a guy like Will Hughes when he was 16. On the other hand we have seen players like Robbie Cotton, Adam Henley and even Grant Hanley not fulfil their potential.
My point is im not sure we should or will use the 1 mil now if we sell him. Maybe in the summer, but I still think Im leaning towards trying to keep him if he is such a talent.
