Oh, no I agree to you with an extent. I'd personally have no issue signing a 30 year old. My only worry would be that it would sideline Kane who if he continues to improve and get game time at the current rate in which he is, he could turn into a regular starter for us in a season or two.30 is hardly old. Dont see a problem with a 1-2 year deal. It's a free transfer, hardly a risk. We lack experience and goals too, its a logical signing IMO. Saying that it's probably BS...
But if get Jonas it means we probably won't get someone else who will have it and you lose that potential money. You spend couple of millions on his wages and then let him go for free or 1m. Or you get somebody else and than sell him for 10m more you payed for him. Although in case of Jonas some Russian club might pay couple of millions for him even in a year or two.Are we really worrying about the resale value of a player that has no transfer fee?
Kaboul can move on a free in January and Ceballos could go on loan.We've used up are 17 non- homegrown spaces haven't we, so we can't sign him I think.
Mason is homegrown.The 17 non-homegrown limit is certainly a problem, unless Mason and/or Ceballos are lined up for a loan to the Championship, or Kaboul is set to retire.
