Sorry, I mean the player that won't address our biggest need. Structurally, he won't release someone like Merrett. If he came cheap, then sure. Replacing him with say Langford would be pretty good. GC won't ever give him away for a suitable price and Martin won't want anything less than 600K.Would not say we do not need Jack Martin. You never turn away good players. The issue is he is second in the Que in the type of midfielders we need. It is easy to say Wines is perfect but Wines has only been in the speculative talk. Martin has requested a trade. I do not think he is coming to us anyway as the price tag will be too high as far as his contract goes.
We should at least do everything we can to get Ollie Wines. This is probably the cheapest we'll ever get a proven quality inside mid that'll have an immediate impact on our side. I'd be willing to give some quality to Port in return. We can be too conservative sometimes.
