Leon Bailey - One to watch
Talk in the papers today he may choose to play for England and go to the World Cup. Appreciate it’s a long shot, but IF he does, his price will surely explode. The kid is class. Definitely one to watch.
(Also linked with a possible £75m move to all the big clubs this summer).
I thought this rumour was scotched a few weeks ago? Talksport released an article saying although two of his grandparents hold British passports, they weren't born on the UK, and therefore he doesnt meet the eligiblity criteria.
Good player, but he won't be at the WC and is unlikely to get a transfer this summer. I'd expect him to sit between £2.50 to £3 for a good while.
Hmm you’re right. The article I saw is just a tad misleading then! Quotes:
Butler (Bailey’s Dad) went on to clear up the issue of how his son, who has scored 11 goals for Leverkusen this season qualifies to represent England.
He said: “He qualifies to play for England through his grandparents, my parents who are English."
