Aberdeen seemingly after Cosgrove. According to ReluctantNicko on Twitter they’re interested!

If true do we read more into his absence at the SWFC game due to personal reasons?bearing in mind just before that manager & media alike praising his explosive debut.

It would be a real shame to lose Cosgrove. We're not scoring that many at present and from what I've seen of him he's looked the most likely of the forwards to score. A goal, 2 disallowed and hitting the woodwork is not bad for a young lad just getting into the side. Hope he stays.

Been said on here in the past how shit the spl is and Motherwell usually seem to get a mention for general crappiness. This window they’ve sold a player for a bit of money to Preston and it’s now reported on sky they’ve turned down a £375k bid for another. I wonder who our players worth this sort of money are.

Aye, but it's a) celtic putting in that bid, and Motherwell know they've more cash than that and b) don't want to sell their keeper to a club in the same division on the last day of the transfer window

FWIW, leeds are looking at buying a forest green trainee

We in particular just have a track record of selling our best players for buttons. The only time we got proper money for a player was Joe Garner and half of that then went to Blackburn Rovers.

There's talk of a nominal fee of £25,000 for Cosgrove. If so this is a pathetic piece of business which will embarrass the club in years to come. When you see the price tag put on players like Charlie Wyke and Danny Graham in the past surely it is better to try and develop Sam Cosgrove into a potential Championship striker. He's only 21 and has shown ability in the limited pitch time Curle has given him.

If they've offered him a pre-contract agreement, It means we would get nothing in the summer for him so we might as well cash in on him, as although he's looked ok it not worth developing a young player who's already signed a deal with someone else.

Don't we automatically get something for him because of his age? 25k isn't too bad if there are add ons and a decent percentage of any sell on. At the start of December not many thought he would still be here in January

We would if he went to another English club but by going to a Scottish club we don't.

We are as poor as a church mouse-everything is for sale it seems other than the shares.

Jury still out for me with Cosgrove as he’s very young and green but if we lose a good prospect for £25k,there should be a stewards enquiry into the competence of whoever is in charge. But what do we know?We are not worthy.

A player who when we signed was classed as akin to getting a lump of coal for Christmas.

Someone wants to buy him off us after a few games for hard cash.

If it wasn't Keith Curle selling Cosgrove then everyone would have said well done but because of the agenda that some have against Keith then it is a bad bit of business!

No, it's because this is a young player who our esteemed manager didn't play until he absolutely had to, who has played well in several games and is now close to moving on because a better team has recognised his ability. I've no idea whether or not it would be Curle's choice to allow him to leave but it's annoying nonetheless. There's no agenda here.

It was Keith's decision to barely play him until the window opened whereupon Cosgrove actually looked quite decent. If it was Nabi or Bennett then £25k would be fine. But this kid has a decent pedigree and the potential upside merits at least trying to develop him beyond a few starts.

Curle has rarely bothered with trying to develop young players. Dempsey and Wyke improved but even the latter didn't start every game until the last couple of months before his move to Bradford.

No offence Munchy, but that is absolute rubbish.
I know Cosgrove still has a lot to prove, but he is a player who has turned into the only bright light we currently have for the future.
We should be doing all we can to keep him, give him a regular run of games and build our team around him.
If it doesn't work out, then we may have lost out on 25k. Big deal.
The fact that Aberdeen appear to have spotted a good prospect after 3-4 games says it all. It took Curle 6 months, and he still only played him because he had run out of patience with our other 'strikers'
And I use the term 'strikers' very loosely.
The fact that the club appear to be ready to accept buttons for him is fuc*ing criminal.

Just a hunch, but I think if we do hold onto him AND he plays or features in majority of games, that many (if honest), say we should have taken the £25,000.

If he goes now, he goes as a better player than maybe he is, in the eyes of the supporters due to recent form, but hopefully he is here to show us over a greater period of time what he is really about.

If his agent has pulled this its a master stroke. If he stays he probably won't play as Stockton is before him in the queue now I would imagine, then he can leave for a free in the summer and go where he wants. Alternatively we could offer a contract until summer 2019 but as a player wanted by a Scottish Premier team he'll be eyeing up a juicy salary hike. I would let him go but with lots of add ons. He'll get a better grounding at Aberdeen than with us so lets transfer the development risk to them. Anyway he could come back on loan

No offence taken but I disagree highly, another Warring people thought and it was utter madness giving him a six month contract.

Maybe Keith wants to keep him and the board have seen cash signs.

Perhaps the other strikers looked better in training and Cosgrove proved his worth, seems to me another stick to beat Keith with.

While this isn’t a particularly thrilling piece of business, no-one has explained how the club can compel a player in Cosgrove’s situation to stay.

He was signed as a cheap option to make up the numbers and a couple of months back was probably considering that his professional career might be fizzling out at the end of the season. Suddenly of the back of a couple of good performances and one goal (followed by performances which saw him dropped) he’s been handed an opportunity in the SPL. Even if we offered a 3 year deal on massive wages (which I wouldn’t be inclined to do on the basis of the limited evidence so far) there’s no obligation on his part to sign it and the Aberdeen opportunity is too big a break to turn down from his point of view.

The bigger issue for me is Curle thinking Bennett was worth paying a very rare transfer fee for ,continuing to play him dispute looking at best ordinary he eventually after signing Cosgrove pre season gives him a couple of games and looks far better than Bennett and now we are losing him ....very poor from Curle this in my opinion
