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 c9m 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.
