    I’m reading that that is highly unlikely myself.

    I absolutely love Foden. Going to be a star player in a few years

    There's a big gulf between Standard Liege to Borussia Dortmund.

    I agree it's unlikely, just posted as I remembered and as I'm sure hercs passed it on in good faith so there must be something there

    Also there were some odd things about the whole thing, that both sides of itk thought it was done and that Dortmund gave him they're number 7 shirt but then didn't include him in their champions league squad

    I dunno but imo something's going/went on

    Shitty threw their toys out of the pram because while they're quite happy to try and tap up our academy players they couldn't bear the thought of one of their own (who they poached in the first place anyway) going to another Premier League team where he'd actually get to play.

    If Sancho didn't want to go to Dortmund, City couldn't make him.

    True but they probably told him they wouldn't release his registration for a year if he signed for another PL team.

    He wouldn't even have been able to play U23 football, only train.

    Yup agree.Taking sancho to Russia would be less crazy call than when they took Walcott.imagine looking to bench and having sancho or Ox absolute no brainer.

    What is Sancho's deal anyway - does Dortmund have him after next season? Is he going back to City after this year? Or is he free of a contract after this year? Didn't follow up once we were out.

    Proper contract until 2020, he hasn't played a game for them yet, only some (3) youth matches scoring twice. He made the bench once or twice I believe, but never looked in danger of getting game time.

    Oh so it's a proper transfer...assume there will be some kind of buy back or sell on clause in there somewhere.

    This would have been pretty soon after Poch was appointed, in a new country where he struggles with the language, and the press still wondering why Adkins was sacked. Which just shows what he's made of.

    I take it no one else agreed with my notion that KWP could possibly play as a cm?

    I think he’s got the skill set personally, tenacious, dynamic, fantastic technique in tight situations, keeps his head up, moves the ball quickly but can also dribble past a man.

    No one?

    didn't even see it, must've got lost amongst all the sancho and pochettino posts ...

    kwp's one of those players that just looks comfortable anywhere. i've seen him play rb, lb, rw, lw and #10 and he's never looked out of his comfort zone so i'm sure he'd be fine at cm as well but whilst being versatile is a benefit, i think it's best for him to focus on being a fb(preferably right) for now and it's not like we're short of cm prospects at the moment.

    kwp can definately play as a cm because he is a total footballer, who is tactically, technically proficient. I mean it takes a very speacial talent to run games from fb as kwp has done at u23 level. And if I had to pick our lineup and it came down to him or Sissoko for a midfield role it would be Kyle all day. But like @Blake Griffin said we have plenty of excellent cm prospects coming through and kwp can go onto becoming a very special fb, which is a very important role in a poch team.
