Well from Alan Nixon(take the info and source how you want) we are in talks with a premier league club over a CB. If brought in, one(player doesn't specify position) will be out. On Twitter many are assuming it would be Williams but no journo has said that, only fans.

Apparently so but also incoming CB from Prem club. No names yet but Twitter fairly active on this at the moment and Alan Nixon quoting this

may see something happen next week with a few coming and goings with the boost of additional funds from Bolasie to Everton it could be an interesting coulee of weeks in the transfer market for BCFC

Nixon said the CB coming in would be a squad player and not a star, if I understood him correctly.

Having said that he said only a few days ago we were signing Rico Henry and that looks like BS.

EDIT - this info is on the other thread about this 

Think he's saying the Prem player is a Prem squad player....that's how I'm reading it.  Having said that whoever comes in will have to oust Flint/Magnússon

Unless player coming in can also play RB and act as cover for Mathews, might be Little leaving. Cannot see Williams going , covers the left side.

I would much rather have Del Boy as back up than Liam Moore. Williams more than capable and is a model pro.

Moore would be back up for Flint and Mathews. I still see Little and Freeman leaving. But who knows if it is Moore, his career has been full of stop and  starts .

Model pro perhaps but certainly the jury still out for me on his ability at this level. 

In my eyes he is decent enough backup for this level, and has the potential to be a good championship CB. He's still over half a decks away from a defenders prime age.

Though I have a sneaky feeling there's a championship club who want him

If we lose Freeman, would we be looking to replace him?

Ayling and Little, plus Agard and Freeman out the door changes the look of our squad from pretty healthy with a couple who have yet to prove themselves, to a relatively threadbare looking affair.

I would think depends on the Bolasie transfer

Do we really have enough cover if we sign a CH to then let Derek williams and Mark little go?... We would have Mathews, flint and whoever the new player is at right sided defensive players. We would look incredibly light and an injury/red card away from a disaster. 

If we let both go, I'd say we need a centre back who is capable at right back (Liam Moore/Kevin Long) and another centre back (Tiago Ilori?).

Certainly wouldn't let both go and replace with just one!

Sounds like it is Long from Burnley. Bit of a weird one compared to others we have signed. Would not let Williams go unless there is a second CB identified.

It's Mark Ashton's responsibility to ensure we stay within FFP rules, this is probably why we have to sell in order to buy now

Nothing has been said about needing to sell in order to buy. The comments made by people ITK suggest we will be breaking our record transfer fee again this summer, that won't be offset by 700k or so (realistic fee) we'd get for Williams.

It might be tied in with the expected windfall from Bolasie as well though.

The Bolasie sell on doesn't help the wage bill. Don't want 25 players on long contracts. I imagine we will be wanting to shift squad players on a decent wage. Good to get a fee for Ayling and if Little goes that opens up plenty of wages for a back up CB/RB. Imagine if we knew we wanted to spend on a striker, those wages were set aside.

Williams is no better or worse than Liam Moore and Moore would be coming in as cover. So save the money and keep Williams !

He is no better or worse than Liam Moore in my opinion. So save the money and keep Williams. Moore coming in wouldn't be happy to bench warm after his spell at Leicester .

I suggested Williams would be staying, if the CB was able to cover RB too, so it might be Little leaving. However media suggests it is Williams.

Agree to disagree.

Well he made 30 appearances in a team that won the league by 11 points and was highly regarded by Leicester fans that season.  

He clearly wasn't at his best when with us, fitness and sharpness wise, but I think there's an excellent player in there.

:shocking: 3-400k., max.

Extremely unlikely.

Williams has looked very uncomfortable at this level, and certainly won't have impressed rival Championship clubs.

If he goes it will be because he's viewed as surplus by LJ, not because he's in demand.
