Steven Fletcher (ex Hibs)


Recommended Posts

Wolves are closing on a £7million deal for Burnley striker Steven Fletcher.

Sportsmail revealed Wolves' interest earlier this month when they opened the bidding with a £5m offer for the Scotland international.

Yet Burnley, who have also had inquiries from Birmingham and West Ham for the 23-year-old, value Fletcher at £7m.

It represents massive profit for a player Owen Coyle bought from Hibernian for just £3m last summer but Burnley need the cash for rebuilding and their efforts to bounce back at the first attempt from relegation.

£7M for Fletcher. That is just crazy. Why would they not rather go for Boyd? Mental <cr>

Played well and scored a fair amount of goals for an awful Burnley team and is only 22/23. £7m is not too much at all for an EPL team if you look at Emlander for £12m or Bent for £16m for example.

Still seems a bit high, but the budgets EPL teams get is crazy and they will get big money for Doyle this summer.

Its amazing he went from a 3mil player to 7 mil in one season, even though he scored, what, 8 goals?

Just shows what a piss take the EPL is when it comes to player valuations.

How long until the EPL bubble bursts with a collective debt of some £3.5 BILLION!?

In a "Normal" league, paying anything near £7 million for a player like Fletcher would be considered sheer lunacy.The EPL however is not normal, when it comes to the amount of silly money that it generates from Television.

Blackpool getting in to the EPL handed them a £90 million bonanza,so paying £7 million for Fletcher might be considered good business if he scores 10 goals that would keep a club in the EPL, even by the skin of their teeth.

The wages and transfer fees that abound in the EPL are very short on normality and pretty well full of lunacy.:pipe:
