£250,000 for Manning apparently, they are waiting for EFL clearance.

That’s according to the BBC.


£250,000! That would be daylight robbery

I am seeing 250k from various sources.

It’s that or nothing in a few months time because he is out of contract.

We brought him over from Ireland and developed him and he gives us 87 appearances and buggers off. Hope he fails miserably lol.

I would believe the 250k fee. It's certainly low but far closer to reality than the 5 million.

Warburton said recently that he didn't want players in the first team inflating their value whilst running down their contracts.

Keeping him out of the side seems to have done the trick. Made him effectively worthless to us.

Surely it's not £250k. Whilst the £5m being banded around seemed too high, £250k (if true) is far far to low.

He was off like Jack Robinson - but without the sick note. whistle If ever we're allowed back to matches and he comes with his Welsh chums, do please remember to welcome this fine young man.

£250k is a laughable price to sell him for.

I would rather we called his bluff and sat him rotting away on the bench for a season. Maybe then he would be more inclined to have signed.

It’s a very poor piece of business for us, and not for the first time that we’ve sold a player considerably below market value. A real shame.

First things first, good luck to the lad. Its been a pleasure warching him over the last few seasons and his attacking ability and frequent goal scoring has made him a joy to watch. I'm truly disappointed as i always thought he'd be with us for years.

However.....£250k? WTF? How could we let him go for so low? Who else could we have got as good a quality as him for that price? It does feel like Robinson all over again - what ever happened to him!!! I just hope the board know what they are doing as we've just lost a decent player and i would've rather sold him in January and got 3 months out of him on the pitch. But if he wanted to leave i guess its best all round. No player is bigger than the club. U R'sssss.

A few sources are saying 250k initially then extras after a number of appearances etc, sell on clause too.

One paper quotes Manning as saying that he felt he had outgrown the club and wanted to take his career in a different direction

Maybe sick to the back teeth of being criticised for being a poor defender, a position he didn't want to play in. He is an attacking midfielder, as shown by his assists for las season. He also scored in his last three appearances for us. Good luck to him and I wish him well for his future.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.
