Henry Onyekuru

Bob Latchford

Player Valuation: £20m
It doesn't actually say, I also misread and because of his age it's actually the last 12 months:

Official FIFA RankingRequired % of international matches in past 2 yrs
FIFA 1-1030% and above
FIFA 11-2045% and above
FIFA 21-3060% and above
FIFA 31-5075% and above
In the case of players aged 21 or under at the time of application, the period is reduced to one year. The aim is to make it easier for young, outstanding talent to grow their game in the UK.

If a club’s application is rejected, there is an appeals process. The Exceptions Panel is the appeals body which will consider, on a points based system, the player’s experience and value before deciding whether the player can join the club, regardless of their failed application. A stricter assessment of relevant objective criteria will now be applied in an appeal.

I still feel we should be able to get him here anyway based on the bold considering his CL appearances, goals and the fact he is now regularly playing for Nigeria. There is also an AFCON in June so maybe we'll apply after that.

Nice that mate
Cheers.

Is the talk that he will/could potentially meet the criteria over the summer at the ACON?

Nigeria are in Group 2 with Madagascar, Burundi and Guinea with the first game on 22nd June.

Nice table mate. What percentage of games has he played for Nigeria so far this year?
 

Zatara

Player Valuation: £70m
27 games (+2 sub) 13 goals / 3 assists

Thats got to be worth £20mil+ to someone seeing what we paid for Tosun.

Win / win for us
