    Chadli is more of a winger so don't think that should impact the decision too much

    I think Chadli has had a gripe at both Spurs and WBA because he feels he should play as a striker yet both managers see him as a winger. Could be that Clement see's Chadli as a striker and has told him that hence the move gathering pace.

    Played right midfield in the play off final and looked great. Certainly worth a punt. Scored a cracking goal too.

    Maybe, hope you're right. Never seen him play anywhere but wing myself. Or wide in a front 3.

    If am honest I'm the same but I believe he did play a handful of games as a striker at WBA but he never really made an impact.

    He has played up top for Belgium as well. Clearly sees himself as a second striker so you might not be a million miles off with the Chadli/McBurnie link.

    It's true. He's having a medical now.

    Another midfielder, are we going for some sort of record?

    His stats based on league and position played for those who enjoy that type of thing.

    Mainly played CM, but also played a lot at Right Midfield.

    good luck to that lad if we sign him. Huge step up though so hope we have a couple of more experienced loans lined up as well to help the new lads bed in and give them some time.

    Imagine he'll be used on wing. With izzy out it's a position we desperately need cover for

    Good. Only 6 more signings to make then we might have a vaguely competitive squad.

    Well I've visited 2 Blackpool forums and consensus is he's ****. Small sample size.

    I think he's a talented lad would have preferred the winger though.

    We certainly need strikers alright!
    I think Potts will be a good acquisition though in midfield.

    They won't be too disappointed that he's left if that's their opinion then.?

    Is he being trained/coached correctly. ? Might find that Hecky and Co can
    have an influence and bring the best out of him.

    Wouldn't think we'd pay a six figure sum if we didn't think he's going to be
    an asset to our squad.!
