    when he first broke into the team i though here`s a must buy an England first teamer for the next decade, he may well still be that but i do not see much improvement, and he certainly will not challenge [ if fit ] Mendy who is only slightly older

    Prices for relatively unproven English potential are crazy high

    Mendy is very overrated imo. He can’t defend and looks clueless when he has to - although he is fantastic in the opposition half, the best in the prem. We need a more we’ll rounded LB for certain opposition and maybe this is the guy

    I always pick English players if it is even close but Mendy from Lyon and Ghoulam from Napoli both have been more impressive against us Dortmund have a player on loan from Real that is starting to make waves and Grimaldo is still available, and all these would be cheaper

    Whilst he’s a good player, I think Mendy is better than him.

    Moreover, Leicester will presumably want a figure close to what we paid for Mahrez, which is quite frankly preposterous.

    If we are to target a young British full-back, I’d prefer to see us go after Wan-Bissaka. He’s a year younger than Chilwell and the brighter prospect of the two in my view.

    Just to put this to bed (unless I screw it up) you can have a maximum of 25 in the squad plus the (pretty much unlimited) youth players, you don't have to have 25 of course.

    Of those 25 a maximum of 4 can be counted as Club Trained, if you have 5 for instance then 1 would have to be counted as either one of the 4 Association Trained players or if you also have 4 of them (taking up the first 8 slots) then they would have to go on the open list of 17. So you could have 25 Club Trained players but only 4 count as such and the other 21 would fill the rest of the slots.

    Just to be awkward if you don't have a full 25 then the numbers change slightly in terms of homegrown.

    That makes more sense than the UEFA site mumbo jumbo. Cheers. Tbh, the only reason I checked the site it was because somebody came on here and said we couldn't sign another home grown player, which made no sense at all.
