I've only just realised he's the pne player that scored a long range free kick against us when he was 19 years old.

He seems a well grounded sensible lad from this footage.
Can't promise him a similar view from his home though !!!

I think Bristol want Wells as they really need a goalscorer. Wells is in good form and it also stops a rival like Forest signing him.

If they accepted West Hams offer, they'd have to find another goalscorer to sign which wouldn't be easy this late in the window. I doubt they'd be able to sign a proven championship goalscorer because none of their rivals would sell to them. It's lucky for them that Wells was on loan because QPR wouldn't have sold to them.

I'd be very surprised if it happened and even more surprised if there was any truth in it.

Hopefully no truth in it but Brownhill and Wells are separate deals apparently

It still gives us a bit of power though. We can tell Bristol if we don't get Brownhill then we'll sell Wells to someone else.

Not as simple as that, if the player has any say, of course. A club cannot force their player to join Club A, if the player prefers Club B for example?

He's unlikely to get much game time at West Ham, and we really need a new midfielder, a no brainer for me, but I'm not Josh Brownhill.

BBC says it’s done, that’s good enough for me.

Clearly been interested in him for a while. He’d be a bit daft to go to a club that have turned to him on a whim, and are much closer to relegation than us. If he does, so be it.

Yeah, if Brownhill suddenly decided he didn't want to sign for us there's not much us or Bristol could do about it. I'm confident it's going through though!

Didnt west ham just sign a midfielder? Soucek? This seems odd.

Bristol City have our pants down if Wells is only going there for £4mil. Hope it's more than that!
Why though. He is obviously surplus to requirements and I wouldn't call him a high goalscorer and certainly not at all with us. No point keeping a player if he isn't going to be used, and he obviously isn't. We get 4m, save on his wages and the lad gets to go where he might actually play most of the time. Everyone's a winner.

It was a knee-jerk statement on my part. I've since been talked round :D

If he goes to West Ham it must be because he loves playing his football in the Championship

Nothing of any substance on social media regarding West Ham - only one from around 7 hours ago that we'd seen off a late attempt by West Ham. Which suggests it's recycled news from early this morning.

He is obviously holding out for some nice candles as a signing bonus.

Edit: He enjoys playing Werewolf as well, top pick if you have a lot of players.

Everyone close your eyes, Werewolves open your eyes :twisted:

Considering his medical was earlier and still no news from BFC, either he hasn't signed and is checking out WHU or our press dept has fallen down a big hole!

Let's have this in context - I'm pretty sure the medical was stated to be this afternoon, which sort of makes sense if you consider that it's likely he was in Bristol last night (presuming that the reports were accurate in that that was when the fee was agreed) so had to drive up to Manchester for the medical this morning.

Every chance that confirmation will not be given until the morning.

Always seems to take an age to get them photographed holding a shirt or a scarf. They probably have to wait while some one pops down to the club shop and buys one with a bucket full of change.

How long do people think these multi million pound deals take? It's not just a case of turning up and signing a piece of paper, if it's correct it wasn't agreed till last night, I guess it will be tomorrow
