He suits our situation far better. We could afford to loan him back out, Toby for another year, then Sanchez into Toby’s spot next season and Saliba into Sanchez role.
With Foyth covering CB/RB. Vertonghen would likely leave soonish after Toby, so we'd have Sanchez Foyth and Saliba for the CB positions.

Very decent.

There is a possibility that Levy is attempting to leverage more money from the scum for the player...he's done it before, I believe. [Ings - Burnley to Scousers]

This window is quite weird.

I don't see any specifics on if he will be available this season or next.
Any news on that ?
Potentially Toby out the club soon Jan not getting any younger and could also be an issue in the not so distant future id expect them to keep him in rather than loan out.

Oh please let this be true. Not because i know anything about this kid at all. But because hijacking a player from Arsenal because they cant afford it would be like sweet like candy.

I thought that but I think when Herc previously said about the under 21 player he said he wasn’t in the press yet, may be wrong but Saliba was already liked
Where did Herc say not in the media??

This was the itk he posted :-

A lot happening. New updates becoming rapid. I am told we are trying to tie up a deal for a very talented under 21, with ‘Massive potential’. Trying to finalise with his club, as lot of interest in him. I do not have the name as yet, and I know that is frustrating. If I get the name I will post it (if I can). Normally when name comes out I get confirmation.

Pretty sure that Herc said the mystery youngster's name wasn't out there. We have been linked with Saliba for a few weeks now.
He did, but I don't think any of us were really taking this link seriously until now. It had mostly seemed like tabloid clickbait or an agent using our name to progress a deal along. This is the first highly credible report as far as I know. You could be right though, which itself would be incredibly exciting.

Making Fergie cry by signing Zeki Fryers was #topbanter back in the day. If this is just as fun, I'm all for it.

The fact that we're potentially gazumping Arsenal would explain why no confirmation has been given or why Herc's been told not to identify the player by name. Looking at that post I don't see there being any inconsistency if Saliba were the player.
