Midland will no doubt give his own answer. But from the rumours I've seen, I believe both Newcastle and Everton are interested in Tarkowski and he would likely get more game time with either of those two than with us (injuries aside). The other issue with Tarkowski could be wages.

As for our back up for Andersen and Guehi, we don't yet know what will happen with Kouyate but he is a CB cover option if he stays. Also, I can see Ward being asked to focus more on the CB cover role, especially if Clyne stays and makes the RB position his own.

As for Ferguson - who knows?!!

Finally, it will be interesting to see if Jake O'Brien gets a decent run out in pre-season, with a view to being CB cover or whether he'll get another loan out. The young Irish lad had a good spell at Swindon.

Tarkowski would be a starter at both Everton and Newcastle, thus will be one last pay day for him so my money would be on Newcastle.
IMO Ward will be used fir cover at CB, thought he was ok there. We will keep Clyne for RB cover. The conundrum is do we go for another RB or hope on Ferguson?

This is all very much a moot point as I don't think we'd be in for him and it was only ever really my opinion on who I'd go for from relegated teams.

However, Everton have Keane, Mina, Holgate, Godfrey and Branthwaite. Newcastle are being heavily linked with the likes of Botman & Ake etc. as well as having Burns, Schaar, Clark, Fernandez, Lascelles already at the club. Many of these won't be there come the start of the season, but it's still more competition than what we have.

I think if anything, we are more likely to see CB cover come from something like Colwill on loan but I was merely saying that I could see him on a free being a good fit/option for us. Solid experienced player offering genuine competition on a free and him joining an established, progressive club with a realistic chance of challenging for a starting spot.

Who are the other clubs that you think would come in for him that would have less competition for starting spots, other than the 3 promoted clubs that are likely to be in a relegation fight?

I'd also hope that any player would have the mentality that they have the ability to displace the current players at the club, rather than have a guarantee they would start.

I think we offer the least competition for regular playing time for a club in that 8th-17th area of the league, with only Anderson & Guehi as first choice and then an ageing and injury prone Tomkins as back up.

I'm not suggesting the club are in for him, however, I think both the player and club could do a lot worse and it would make sense to bring in a player of his experience and ability on a free for a couple of years whilst we focus on the more immediate requirements of the squad.

He's not a free though, just because no transfer fee is required. He will get a massive signing on fee and then over 100k a week for maybe the next 4 seasons. When Defoe moved to Bournemouth a few years back on a free he received a 4m signing on fee.

A good player but not one for us - too old, expensive and CB is a position we need further depth but not a new starter.

I've always thought if Zaha goes, Cornet wouldn't be a bad replacement.

 


Patrick Viera's
Red and Blue Army!

He decked a bin dipper - respect.

I'd certainly endorse support to bring him in.

Looked well out of place in that Burnley team, may well see him at his best with Vieira's Palace.

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

Click-bait sites seem increasingly certain that Tarkowski is Everton bound. Our retention of Tomkins suggests we aren't or weren't interested in the Burnley CB.
