I agree but personally I see this more as a replacement for when Jan leaves, there's no way we'd bring in a player and put them straight into our back 2 from the get go unless we had to sure to injury.I would be gutted to lose JV and I think it’d be a big mistake
I say this with no evidence whatsoever but...
He’s core to the culture I reckon. A true professional who also mixes in some passion and personality. And he’s quality. Keep under all circumstances
For me Ake would be the long term CB to partner Sanchez replacing Jan and Toby respectively. Having 4 CBs of decent quality on our books at the same time makes sense, having 2 for each side of the CB pair makes even more sense and this is what we'd have if Toby leaves this window and Ake joins.
