Burnley fan here.

The signing of Nathan Collins is all but complete with only the finer details to be confirmed but wanted to say you've got yourselves a bargain.

Some of you might be baulking at a seemingly large fee for a young defender but this guy has the lot. He has great feet, is composed on the ball, solid and extremely strong. He's quick and fierce in the tackle and indominatble in the air.

Coupled with that is a reading of the game that belies his youth. Above all his physical attributes this might be his biggest strength. Oh, and he's capable of popping up with 5 or 6 goals a season.

I'm not really one for hyperbole and I've never bothered to post anything like this in the past. You've just bought a world class defender. He needs to focus a tad more but this guys really has it all.

Only CB I've ever seen close to this good at such a young age was when we had Gary Cahill on loan for a year. However, Collins is much more accomplished than Cahill looked, even though we were only Championship level when we had Cahill. How many England caps did Cahill win? Well, you've just bought a player who is better than that.

Expect a Champions League team to be bidding silly money (much closer to his true worth) IRO £70-£80 million for him next summer.

All the best,

Rowls

Well done Wolves. Good recruitment this. Can hopefully help us evolve as a side too.

Just hope it doesn’t mean we try to cash in on MGW as a result

Great news, hopefully the lad will have a long and fruitful career with us.
Just need a fit for purpose CM and striker, plus a couple of young guns and we'll be fine.

Young, promising, British, from a relegated team and experienced CB... Who has kidnapped Jeff and stolen his cheque book?
