more 'Matt Grimes to Southampton speculation, based on Russell Martin's habit of taking trusted former players with him

Sweeney has been brilliant for us over the years. At 29 in September I think any bid would be £250,000 at the most and even that's a stretch. If there is any truth in these rumours, which I doubt, then the decimal point is in the wrong place!

Definitely a stretch, IMO! No one is paying quarter of a million for Sweeney, as much as well loved here. He’s been very good for us but he’s got plenty of limitations and clubs can sign just as good players on free transfers every summer.

It's clearly a fake account and I didn't even realise anyone on here was actually taking it seriously!

2m+ for Pierce Sweeney. There's more chance of us re-signing Ollie Watkins.

Last summer, to see how gullible people are, I created one of these fake accounts on Twitter, gave it a credible sounding name and profile picture and put a few tweets out about League One / Two players. Only had a few nibbles untilI tweeted about Bradford being interested in someone and then all Hell broke loose.

Should think if Ipswich have been offered Sweenz for £2.5m they'd be telling that agent to (Tur)kiss my butt.

I'd be surprised if we got 50 grand for Sweeney!

I hope the gullible ones are joking...
