What do we think, will he be the subject of a bid in January?

If so whats he worth, what would he go for?

I'll start

1. Yes
2. Worth - 1m
3. Sell 250k with sell on clauses
Accepted Answer Pending Moderation
More than £1m when? After 20 England caps?!

When a transfer fee is announced they usually say could be a potential £1.5m etc

Not these days they don’t!

But I’m telling you. We’ll get more than any £750k for him..

More lies from the bod saying he had picked up a 'niggle' in training.

Pathetic taking the first bid and not even getting £1m which is chicken feed for Everton. Only got Cardiff tickets to see him play - wish I hadn't now.


How do you know that this is the first bid?

Are you honestly saying that the only reason you’re going to Cardiff is to see Branthwaite play? Bit of a risk buying tickets in that case when he’s only played once in four games.

For what it’s worth I don’t believe he’s injured either, the same as I don’t believe he was ill the other week. Football clubs have a history of telling lies surrounding transfers.

Shame that we've offloaded some real talent this season - you only have to look at Crewe to see the benefit of investing in youth, rather than bringing in has beens who ain't playing for the shirt any more, but their last decent wage packet.

Well the January window has only just opened it it was reported on sky that he's going to Everton for 750k. Hardly time for any other bids.

I don't believe for a second he is injured - first time it was reported he was already at Everton - probably getting a medical. Today will be one of Carlisle's promises not to play him.

The January transfer window is nothing to do with ‘bids’. It is a window for the transfer of players - very different to bids and discussions, which can, and do, happen, at any time of year.

This move is about to smash our transfer record - if the figure and add on bits are true :)

Can't have been much of a bidding war unless Everton have turned his head, shown him round and made him feel welcome so a gentlemans agreement was perhaps struck.

If the other clubs didn't match Evertons valuation then more fool them as an initial 750k is a snip for a top flight team - makes you wonder what the other clubs were bidding then, I would love to know how much Rangers and Celtic valued him at.

Although another website says Knighton waived the sell on fee.

Either way - even if we got a million in 1999 - worth about £1,500,000 today under normal inflation (not premier league inflation)

Carlisle's records receipts always seem to show Tottenham in 97 league cup when about 13,000 were there.

This must now be Everton with over 17k in the fa cup?

It would depend then if the additional payments are achievable that will decide it.

Must be good if the fee is so low - you would hope.

Ethan Ampudu went for £2.5 after not being a first team regular and after watching both not actually being as good , Also similar fee played for players of similar age , 2 million is not the going rate for 17/18 years who are playing regular

The one thing I would let Nixon do is negotiate this deal.He also has a vested interest in getting the best price though probably conflicted by wanting more up front.

I do think we are in danger of getting carried away with values.He’s a young lad playing in a poor team, small squad and 4 places from the trapdoor-goals against figure is horrible.Is he that good and how can we tell?

Feels a bit early to me but the BOD need cash

Ampadu actually cost Chelsea £1.3m up front; the add-ons, if they ever pay them, take it over £2m depending on how many games he plays for Chelsea, which may not be many, and there’s a sell-on percentage too.

Lots of talk about Branthwaite being worth x or Branthwaite being worth y. There is a simple answer as to how much he is worth. He is worth whatever a club is willing to pay for him. Not a penny more, not a penny less.

It's a bit like selling your house. You have several viewings, and if more than one viewers want your house then a bidding process starts. You surely don't take the first offer. A bit like this for Branthwaite. If you really want that house then you will try to outbid the others. Why not put him up for auction with a reserve of 1.5 million.

People keep on referring to Ampadu but as has already been stated it’s a poor comparison. He was in the first team at Exeter at 15, and was a regular when fit (he missed a big chunk of his debut season with injury). He’d moved by the time he was 16 and by the time of the tribunal he was a full international (after previously playing for every age group internationally) and had played a dozen games for Chelsea (the previous season’s premier league champions). What’s Branthwaite got on his CV?

Anyhow, the Ampadu transfer fee was only £1.3m (less than £1million immediately) with the rest dependent on appearances.

https://www.exetercityfc.co.uk/news/2018/april/ethan-ampadu-tribunal-fee/

Wouldn’t it be great if Carlisle were as upfront with details as Exeter were by the way!

One thing I will say for Branthwaite is in his last 5 games for the club we’ve only conceded 1 goal.

In the 4 games he’s missed over the same period we’ve conceded 10.

What really pisses me off most about all this is how the Premier League Clubs are trying to get young players from L1/2 for peanuts, money that should help small clubs like ours survive for a few more years. Yet they think nothing of spunking millions on bang average players from all over the world and millions on sacking managers after a couple of defeats.

I'd use weekly wage or potential weekly wage to determine value of a young player - multiplied by remaining length of career.

So if Branthwaite's worth (or been offered) a contract (currently) of £1200 a week and he has a 17 year career ahead of him - that equals roughly £1 million.

That's where bids should start - and you can add your various clauses on top.

The reason why he was given an international cap is irrelevant, the fact was he was a full international which will have played a part in any tribunal’s decision.

For what it’s worth I get the feeling you’ve made your last statement up anyway. First time he was called up was for a qualifier which would have tied him to Wales, but he didn’t play. He then missed out on the next 4 qualifiers before making his debut in a friendly a month later, in fact it was over a year from his first call-up before he played a competitive fixture for Wales. Hardly the actions of a country picking someone just to tie him down!

Think your point actually proves me more , what the point of having a player in your squad who's not good enough yet for the first team , They were giving him a carrot on the end of the stick.

Advantage of living were I do , Generally my local has some people who know football far better than me and any one on here but Lummy.
