It'll be that, and our unwillingness to lose money on him, as no other team is going to see that injury record and spend £35M. I think I rate him more than most on here, whilst acknowledging that injuries have taken their toll and he'll need to play a lot of games and have a full preseason if he's to stand any chance of getting close to his potential. Also I think supporters underestimate the importance of the academy grown rule, and the difficulty in getting the best players that meet that criteria. He also seems like a good guy, and is probably doing no harm to the dressing room harmony. If we can get £25M or so then we should probably get rid and get someone more robust in, but I just can't see that happening. In the likely event no-one wants to pay for him, then I don't see any harm in keeping him, signing some good competition in that area, and making him force his way into the team rather than him being given time because we don't have anyone else. Or we can just do a Dwayne Dibbley and swap him and Origi for Barnes. Reduce the wage bill and improve our quality.
