Blackburn playing hard to get with Ben Marshall, he wants out as unhappy to still be playing right back and running his contract down but they want £2m. Might not happen till end of the month but likely to reach a compromise.
Also enquired for Sam Gallagher who is Lambert's #1 target but Southampton want £6m and Lambert doesn't have those funds at his disposal without players leaving first.

Only two of our players seem to be attracting interest at the moment and that is Iorfa and Dicko. Would not want to lose either but Gallagher looks the real deal. Let's see what happens moving the surplus players on.

If Gallagher doesn't work out then Asombilonga is Lambert second favourite and even though Nottingham want 5million for him it's cheaper than Gallagher and I think a better shot than Gallagher.

Are we still owned by Steve Morgan? To say we don't have 6m at our disposal is a joke, fosun are a multi billon pound company who make somewhere in the region of 25m a day. We've all got to stop worrying about the cost of players if fosun have the ambition they said they have then no player is to expensive and before you all start going on about financial fair play we can always do want man city have done and get more of fosun company's to sponsor us there is always a way around it.

100% agree 1877. And this is why I'm thinkin were just another charm on their sizeable bracelet.

the thing is guys no one really knows what we have to spend, what Lambert wants, whos going out the door and who wants to comes to wolves. We need players who want to play for us not anyone who thinks their better than us etc.
Football is a job ultimatley for these players so they will do what lines the pocket, PL needs to ensure we have the right mix of youth, experience with enough quality to challenge.

Can you not actually see the obvious reason why we are not buying at the moment is because we have just over a 30 man squad, that looking after saturday's performance, some of them are more than capable of getting in the starting 11, yes some players are struggling but its not easy to off load if they aren't performing week in week out.
Wages are high enough as it is which will surely put us by the FFP if we look at trying to spend the bank in this window.
Yes like many of you have said we can terminate contracts but a lot of the players will have it in their contracts to be paid off full wack especially if Mendes was involved, still putting us out of pocket, hence wage funds then being low for signings in the rest of the window.
Just because Fosun have SO CALLED Money at disposal doesn't mean they are going to spend millions in every window.
Just for once stop having a go and get behind the team, but I bet if we don't get the win against the Vile on Saturday the usual suspects will still be moaning.

We don't have the money I assume because of FFP rules.
We already had a large outlay on transfer fees and loan fees.
I'm guessing until we balance the book then we can't afford to splash out until end of season.
If we do manage to get rid of some dead wood this will free up space in squad for quality not quantity which is the lesson Fosun have learnt.

The usual suspects will moan win lose draw
