Per Sky Sports News, Downes has just signed for Swansea on a 4 year deal, so we can close this thread.

last comment was Oct 2020 - thought it was already closed!!!

Good move for him. Itíll be a case of watching to see if heís able to fulfil the potential Dougie obviously saw in him through the championship coverage on TV.

We have a long standing interest in Downes so the story may have legs.
Many have pointed out that the midfield needs addressing with Gallagher unlikely to return, Kouyate seemingly off, Mcarthurís fitness problems and the apparent lack of trust in Luka and Jairo.
I hope weíre not turning to Downes as we canít secure our apparent first choice of Doucoure but time will tell.
I like Schlupp as a player but donít see him as a first choice midfield option and ideally would like to have kept Kouyate because of his strengths, fitness levels and versatility.
Itís fine having a general policy not to offer 2 year deals to over 30 year olds, but surely exceptions can be made when players have good fitness levels and no serious injury records.

I don't think this means the Doucoure deal is dead rather imo it's more likely the Aribo or O'Brien deals are off.

Skillful player.

I'll be pleased if he comes.

I tend to agree that this has nothing to do with the Doucoure deal. It may not even have a connection with the club's purported interest in Aribo and/or O'Brien. It may, though, be linked to Kouyate not renewing his contract, thereby requiring us to bring in an extra midfielder beyond what was originally planned. With Kouyate gone, Gallagher back at Chelsea, McArthur suspect fitness/injury wise, we probably need at least 3 new midfielders.

Roughly, Doucoure is the Kouyate replacement. Downes is the Gallagher replacement. If Doucoure falls through, we'll be looking for another midfielder to replace Kouyate. Downes doesn't feature in that equation.

Forget Doucore and keep Kouyate.

Plenty of funds then for RB and one other and a loan.

He may not fit in anyway.

Who else loves the fact that each summer window with Palace there always seems to be a move for a player which comes out of nowhere!?

Luckily we never agreed terms with Oumar Niasse from Everton on the deadline day we signed Sakho. If Downes signs hopefully he'll be more in line with Will Hughes than Jordan Mutch.

 


I ain't got nuthin' funny to say. Sorry.

What does give me confidence is having had Steve & Dougie working together for as long as they have done we will have paid our dues, made mistakes along the way but learnt from them - if we are going after a player you can be sure that we have had the opportunity to have a good look at them first & due consideration of all the aspects will be applied which as many posters on here will know has not always been the case in previous years - for sure things can go wrong but if you do your homework properly it reduces the risk element.

Kouyate is 32 and Doucoure is 22. We need to be looking to the future NOT the past and Doucoure is the future for our DM position.
