he has been a rock for Leeds this season, i wonder if Ange will give him a chance.

if we learned anything from this season, it should be that we need 4 recognized center-backs.

is he counted as Home Grown in Europe competition?
They are looking at making the deal permanent this window. Or at least negotiate an option/obligation into the current loan.

I had lunch with a Leeds supporting mate with some connections to the club the other day and he said the same. They absolutely love him

Glad he is doing well at Leeds, when I've seen him play for us and for Wales he is fully committed but just seems to lack composure in certain situations, especially on the ball and when placed under pressure.

Even if he's not ideal for Ange, he'll be ideal for someone else. I hope we get a big fee from Leeds if they are promoted. Otherwise, I can think of a few major clubs who would cough up plenty for him.

Yes - with his performances for Leeds, if he wasn't already our player and we expressed an interest in buying him I reckon Leeds would be asking for 25M+.

Good to see he's doing well even if he doesn't fit our profile. He may well be our most saleable asset, in terms of value, come the summer.

I don't think we'll push for a big fee he doesn't really owe us any money now so any fee is clear profit. We may put in a few add ons maybe a sell on clause which Leeds may go for as right now I doubt they can imagine selling him any time soon.

Can they afford our asking price now?

They’ve got about 200m worth of talent that’s probably going to leave so I’d hope so
@Ghost Hardware has just posted an article in the Archie Gray thread saying that if the don't get promoted, they need to raise about £100m, so while they're going to have to sell a lot of players, they are going to need to keep some quality.
I'm sure we could work out a good deal for them to keep hold of Joe...

If he's been as good as Leeds fan say, then he'll have plenty of suitors from the Championship, so if Leeds can't afford him now, then I doubt it'll make much difference to us. He's only got a year left on his contract with us, so we were never going to get a massive fee for him, even if Leeds were promoted.

I assume this is to increase his value. Unless they want to send him out on loan again
Highly unlikely, but I wonder if they are considering keeping him. We have a ton of games next year with Europa. And injuries are inevitable. At least hold on until January. Saves having to naff about buying a new CB. And would instead focus on FB coverage that can play on both sides of the field.

Could also drive up his value if he plays well.
