Victor Meldrew On the way to the game we were talking about the January transfer window.
Our conclusion was that there would be no incomings but that Olise and Loader would probably go out on loan.
We certainly have enough players on the books to cover all positions apart perhaps from an out and out left winger.
I think the jury is still out on most of the Summer signings.
WestYorksRoyal Doesn't Loader have a decent contract offer on the table? If he doesn't sign, ship him out. £1m + good sell on clause would be good business.
andrew1957 Being OCD I keep a record (as much as is possible) of the buys and sells of RFC.
Over the last 10 years the significant sales of Academy players have included:
Kelly/Hamer/Henry etc - probably another 0.5M. Several others have gone for small amounts of 50K or so.
I make that a little over 30M - or 3M per annum.
I would say the Academy was one of the most successful aspects of this club. We have had a relatively barren spell recently but there are a lot of good youngsters between 15-18 at the moment and I suspect the next Sig, Hector or Long might well be in the Academy already.
Hound Yiadom, Swift and Meite on frees were exceptional signings tbh

Agreed and Moore and Puscas aside are probably the players that are valued the highest out of our squad. cant fault the scouting team as they have found some very good cheap gems in the last few years.
