THE ANFIELD NOISE

Neco Williams (RB) to Nottm Forest/Southampton

Not sure why we don’t already have a thread for this, but sounding likely Neco will be off soon…

Hopefully we get a decent fee, and he gets regular PL football, especially with the World Cup on the horizon.

Buy back clause?

What about Fulham?

Dunno. What about them? :man_shrugging:

Think they just signed an RB, didn’t they?

Forest have signed a RB, Giulian Biancone

Their starting RB from last season was Djed Spence and he’s off to Spurs.

They probably feel they need two options.

Also to add, despite having two RBs, Saints likely in the mix as Livramento did his ACL. Due back at the end of the year, but who knows when he’ll be ready to play again.

It’s startling that what was not too long ago the price of a striker on the verge of being world-class is now the price of a right-back who has had barely any first-team experience, in the grand scheme of things.

I’m hoping the club can extract every last penny here, and that Williams goes on to have a successful career, but this is just staggering.

15m and he’s yours.

Or 2m loan fee and if Forest survive they have to buy him next summer for 100m.

Either seems reasonable to me.

We’ve got Ramsay so it’s only a matter of time for Neco now and whether it’s a loan deal or a permanent one. Think the latter is better for all involved if someone pays up to what he’s worth. £12m-£15m in guaranteed money and some performance bonuses on top.

Don’t think £15m for Neco is unreasonable.

We got 20m for a striker who bagged 1 goal all season, of course it’s not unreasonable.

15 million pounds at least because I’m bloody jealous of the sums Man City get for their unwanted players.

Good deal for both that! Good luck to Neco.

Oh man, have you got Julie on speed-dial or something :laughing:

Literally nothing about that club to get jealous over.

Another one of those guys who was close, but not quite, to the required standard - but managed to make a critical contribution when called upon. I hope he has a brilliant career.

Underlines how far we have progressed and how brilliant our squad is. Would have been a starter ahead of the likes of Johnson and Clyne.

I think Nottingham will be a really exciting team to watch. Best of luck, Neco. YNWA.

I do hope we get a sell on clause there because there’s a proper player in there. I am not sure that he will be a RB much longer though…
