Is anyone actually sure that he's on 30k at Boro, or is it just guesswork? I heard he was on 15k at West Ham, which bearing in mind his age and experience sounds about right. This is still nearly 700 grand a year for an unproven 19 year old! Assuming this is correct, I can't imagine Boro would then have doubled his wages after he played a few games in the Premier League and scored one goal, so I reckon he'll be on about 15k, 20 absolute tops. If this is the case, we're already not a million miles away from being able to offer him something realistic. This is all just supposition on my part, and I could be very wrong. If anyone had asked me in the summer the maximum any club would be willing to pay for Ashley Fletcher based on his experience and past record, I would have "supposed" not more than £2 million, so it shows what I know.
