    Best of luck to him, would be a good move. We can't compete on wages, compared to the parachute payments

    Only up the road to Merseyside where he's from too. He's had a brill season but three average before that to be balanced

    Crackers that he wasn't offered a contract. Do we never learn our lesson?

    Best of luck to him. I'd say we might get in another keeper from Germany. Hopefully in the Heinz Muller mould.

    I would rather him go than our outfield players

    Giant of a German keeper incoming as a replacement. Hopefully more like Heinz Muller than Lars Leese.

    To be fair he was absolutely gash in 2017-18, and plenty of people were calling for him to be shipped out. Now, I'd love him to stay, as I genuinely think that season was a blip. But imagine if he fell back into that form next season, having just signed a 4 year, 10k a week contract. I'm going to stick my neck out and predict that there would be a bit of noise on here if that were to happen.

    26 year old viewed as a long term replacement for a 26 year old, bit weird that.

    If Davies can get that gig though and be their number one then fair play to him because it'll be a considerable wage rise as well

    Is that some info that you have, or just a wish list?

    Neither :D Just a guess as to the route we will go down. Just need to find a list of German keepers aged no older than 25, who are at least 6ft 3 tall :D

    I'm sure @Stahlrost has a comprehensive keeper list compiled. Especially German ones.

    Bet someone somewhere is frantically searching tranfermarkt.com for lower league keepers from Germany who are 20-25 years old...

    I did hear we were looking at Marek Rodak from Fulham, just spent two years on loan at Rotherham.

    Slovak, 22, 6’4” or 6’5” tall, a season’s experience in the championship and league one before that. Seems to fit the bill - though I’ve no idea whatsoever if he’s any good.

    I suspect it will be a prerequisite for any new keeper to be good with his feet given the way we now play.

    That will narrows the search somewhat

    I reckon this guy probably fits the bill. German as well.

    I would be disappointed but not devastated to lose him, its the loss of a transfer fee that the problem is . To replace him were probably going to fork out c500k and 3-4 grand a week in wages anyway .

    Agree with most of that. The reported fee when we were trying to sign Eastwood from Oxford last year was 750k, so I reckon that's what we'll be looking at, unless we manage to pick someone up on a free or from Europe on the cheap.
