Let's wait for the detail. I trust the DoFs to know what they are doing and there must be a good reason for the loan position.

Feels weird.

Loan to buy is usually if the window has closed otherwise it is a cake and eat it. A try before you buy can only be good for the selling club if they are desperate to get him out and nobody wants him, I think he is too good for that and can't wait.

Whatever weirdness is going on it has Brentford written all over it.
Not always - Wolves did it with Jota and Boly I think although that was to get around FFP as they then bought them in the summer following promotion for large fees. If true it is a little odd and at odds with our usual transfer policy but there must be some contingency clauses on both sides in case it doesn't work out as planned.

No different to the Karelis deal imo. Both players have played little football and we have to cover ourselves

Does the article say whether it is a deal with an obligation to buy, or with an option to buy? (it's behind a paywall to read more details).

The loan isn’t mentioned in the article, just the tweet.

It's completely different as Karelis was unattached so there was no one to pay even if we wanted to!
Fair point. But I see it a year for us to see to see what he's about, then commit. Quite shrewd from us

Makes sense. Probably cant command a £6m fee anyway due to the last 18 months.

So we give them (probably) £2m now for the year - and a further £4m if he appears to be worth it Summer 21.

The wait, is getting very frustrating, I keep logging in hoping to see that the transfer has been completed in our favour

I doubt we'd be offering as much as £2m for the first year if that's what we want to pay overall! We don't tend to offer those kind of fees for one year players (why we never normally are in the market for loans from the PL)

My guess would be that it's closer to £500k-£1m for the initial fee, and £3m-4m to make it permanent if we want.

I remember it was quoted on here that he was still with the same agency when the rumours resurfaced...

In fact this is where it was mentioned:
Transfermarkt still shows his agent as CLS Mundial, searching his name with CLS Mundial comes up with a result in April 2019
Ah ok, fair enough - not definitive but at least a bit of substance to it! (y)

No. Just chill out Del - they're not rushing it through, or delaying it, on your account :)

I've just worked my way through the recent posts.

What's all this loan, with a view to a permanent signing?

Is it just Twitter b***ocks again?

Well their end is as leaky as a sieve, so I guess we have to give it some sort of credence.

Not sure it will make a great deal of difference in the end. And it make give us a "try before you buy" option.

Most un-Brentford-like, but if he’s got form for messing about, even if it’s not his fault, gives him a chance to board The Brentford Redemption Train.

Lately, a few clubs are doing this loan to buy thing in the championship where if a club is promoted, a clause suggests they have to buy or an agreed price is there like Diangana to WBA, half the wolves squad was like it when they went up, think Fulham has it with Knockaert or however it's spelt.
Technically a cheaper way of getting a premier league player in the championship without the burden of his salary if you don't go up.

Potentially. Also could simply be a cash flow or FFP thing at the moment. Though I would imagine we are more than fine for FFP.

Feels like a way to mitigate any risk we may feel are linked to this signing, seems wise to me.
For us, but just a huge risk to a club who wants to keep him or sell for as much as they can get.

If he has a stinker or we have issues with him they are stuck with a player on huge salary who is worth even less.

That is fake news. GBS sold Grady to WBA with no clause.

But agree with the rest :)

Even if he signs today the fact he has been in a nightclub in Paris suggests he would have to do the 2 week quarantine before going to training
