I think the club have been smart how they have handled the Sorloth situation. They are likely to recover the vast majority of the fee they paid for him, have his salary covered whilst on loan and, by extending his contract, protect themselves if he does very well in Turkey. Maybe, not very likely but you never know.
Its similar with Benteke and Wickham. Try and protect the balance sheet as far as possible and manage any potential loss re transfer value. Also bear in mind transfer fees have grown significantly in recent years so clubs in the Championship or possibly China may not be put off by the c£9m Palace apparently paid for Wickham. It shows, if nothing else, that there is a business brain behind the scenes at CPFC - most probably Parish.

Sensible move by the club.

Speculate, to accumulate?

Think that is true for Sorloth, for me it isn't the same for Benteke and Wickham because we are paying the 6m and 3m a year salaries. if we extended and loaned out Benteke to recover any form, ok.

Another goal for him last night. Now 7 in 15 appearances, several of which were from the bench.

(that's a link to his stats, not his goal)

I wonder what the Ts and Cs are with Trabzonspor

Glad heís having a decent season. Hopefully we can sell him off the back of this and put the whole sorry matter behind us.

 


Vive le Roy!

Fantastic headed goal he scored but little chance of that at Palace as crosses are a rare thing. If this results in us getting our cash back or, maybe a little on top it'll be a bonus. Doubt he'd replicate it in the PL if given the opportunity but, who knows, look at how Ayew's done this season & the moans when he re-signed.

If we had been that smart, we wouldnít have wasted the money on him in the first place. It was a desperation signing that didnít work. We might have dealt with the aftermath in a reasonable manner but Iím sure we would have been better off had we never signed him.

Itís a 2 year loan I believe, so we were probably just pleased to get him off the wage bill, Iím sure weíre paying part of it still though. Now if heís shown some form maybe we will actually get some of the fee back if they want him. However you never know Roy may want him back.. isnít Sorloth the only one Roy has confirmed was one of Ďhisí signings ..

Not sure Iím bothered who authorised his signing, doesnít really matter, but from day 1 he has never looked like a PL forward. If we do have him back and he plays well Iím willing to eat my words but I just canít see that happening if Iím being honest. He is a poor mans Benteke which is not much praise!

At a lower level he could do ok and I would be pleased if we get 60/70% of our original fee for him back. Poor signing though in my opinion

Poor signing but that happens in football. I think he would have put in a better shift than Benteke. January is only 3 months away.

Both my dead grans would have put in a better shift than Benteke

A haunted frontline could be the way to go. Presumably wouldnít have to name them on the teamsheet.

Maybe start them off in the U121s?
