20mil is way too much. more like 10.

I agree. Juan Mata is about that price, and a better player also.

zeddy1964d ago

too late 20mil deal has already been done according to skysports.

noooooooooo... why are you doing this to us!!

Mata is £20m-£25m and he's three times better than this kid. Why is Liverpool always getting bullied on transfer deals?

£6m for Poulsen (worth less than £10k)
£4m for Konchesky (------ditto------)
£17m for Aquilani (was 95% injured and wanted to stay in Italy)
£35m for Carroll (shouldn't have been more than £15m)

Now this? Plus, I heard Downing for £17m. WTF! He's already 27 and there's a very good reason why 'big clubs' never went for him.

Agree that £20 mil is steep for Henderson but the deal is supposed to be structured that its £13-15 mil plus N'Gog who is valued at between £5-7 mil. I have high hopes for him and think that English players will always have £5-10 mil add on because they are English.

Downing story am very dubious about as he doesn't fit the FSG transfer policy as he is over 23. I know that seems like a weak point but they only want to bring in up and coming players.
