Rumours linking us to him, let's hope not! Surely we can do better than signing an injured 29 year old that's never been a prolific goalscorer.  Can't think that RH would see him as the type of player we need? I know inggs prior injury record isn't good but no one doubted he had natural natural talent not sure the same can be said of wellbeck.

Don't think we were interested when he left Arsenal on a free, so can't see us being interested now at the 'cut price' £5.5m. Assume that's a transfer fee not what Watford pay us to take him.

Outside the age bracket we're meant to be going for.

Playing Devils advocate, if his wages were manageable he would be a good squad player, can cover a number of positions, but agreed it just doesn’t seem like the signing we make.

If you’re going to start a thread about a player at least spell his feckin name correctly.

Eh, didn't we just hint that we were switching to an under-26 recruitment policy? I'm sure there'll be exceptions to that occasionally if we want to add a bit of experience and leadership to the squad, but I doubt we'll make one for someone who has averaged only 10 games a season throughout his career on a minutes-played basis.

I agree, if his wages are reasonable he will defo add something to the squad.  

Yep - average amount spent on treatment table. The only good season he has had was when playing alongside one of the worlds best strikers.
