No thanks he huff's and puffs to much and his injuries have been atrocious
Scored 9 goals in 20 games for FGR before moving to a championship team in January. Think he would be a great signing for any mid league one team.

Is this a suggestion or have we actually spoken to him? Providing he can still run he’s be an unreal signing.
If we had funds available based on his prior location being reasonable local, his experience and him as a player I'd absolutely suggest to sign him up!

But I'd imagine wages would be absolutely ridiculous.

However... Junior Stanislas anyone?? ;) 👍✍
If it's a winger you want try Gavin Whyte who has just been released by Cardiff. Northern Ireland international who cost Cardiff £2.2 million but who's career seems to have hit the buffers in the last couple of seasons. Sounds like the sort of player who could do with dropping a level to jump start his career, something we're very adept at.

Not taking away his ability just his injuries would worry me getting an amazing run of games out of him then have him sit on the treatment table for month and it's not like Stubbs (if he truly was injured 👀) who's wages we're almost certainly a lot less then what Wickham would demand.

Wickham is a waste of money.

Disappointed to see him go have always liked Sweenz but if true £2M seems to be a bit surprising.

Astonishing three or four years for him being given the number 26 shirt as at the time not rated very highly. Got stuck in to prove and did prove MT wrong.

Left for Swindon returned almost immediately having realised very quickly what a basket case the Club then was.

Played a major part in City’s promotion and in a creditable performance last season back in league one.

Now if true going to play in the Championship and bringing in £2M to the City coffers still taking it with the proverbial pinch of salt but on the face of it a remarkable story all round.
I've got some magic beans you can buy. He won't be going for £20,000, let alone two million.
