Adam Webster - Update - Sold to Brighton

Recommended Posts

Taken from Daily Mirror football. This would be a kick in the nuts 

Premier League clubs eyeing Bristol City's Webster

Adam Webster will be at the centre of a transfer tug-of-war this summer.

Bristol City’s defender has only been at Ashton Gate for one season following a £3.5m move from Ipswich Town.

But a number of clubs who themselves have suitors eyeing their own stoppers will turn to 24-year-old Webster if they are caught short.

Wolves have been linked with James Tarkowski, leaving a space to fill at Turf Moor and Burnley are showing a keen interest.

But they are not alone. Newcastle, Southampton and Watford are also monitoring the situation.

The Robins have already banked £13m from the sale of Lloyd Kelly to Bournemouth this season and appear to have a fight on their hands to keep hold of another one of Lee Johnson’s main men.

I posted a while ago that we’d struggle to hold onto Webster this summer - got lots of replies insisting there was no way he was going anywhere .... I still think he’ll attract a lot of interest ...

Cant keep getting  rid of your best players each year, understand the ££££ wages ect of a prem move but that's down to LJ and the board to attract better players so our good players can hopefully realise there prem dream with us.  What was it lj said, we will be bold with recruitment,  prem ready players ect.

Losing him or brownhill would be disastrous, they are one season away from becoming the spine of the team if not already. 

Either would be a bigger loss than flint, bryan or reid last summer.

I think we are signing Kalas anyway, so I guess 20 million for Webster and spend 5 million of it on Ajayi, possibly less. It's not what I want, but it's probably an option.

Nothing more than paper talk

I guess these sports journalists have very little to write about so over the summer so over a liquid lunch, troll thru the various PotY winners and put two and two together and make five.....

Its a load of made up bollocks.

I guess the question is should it be discussed?even if its predictable and transparent it does give something for us to write about. 

Much like the journalists we haven't exactly got much to write about, you can clearly see the mental state of some members decline as they get involved in ever more pun offs.

Unfortunately what LJ says and what happens is often different. But we cannot sell Webster.

I hate to think that, but if we don't sign Kalas with keeping Webster, or god forbid don't sign Kalas and get rid of Webster then what's the point of it all :sad26:

oh, and will the last person that leaves Ashton Gate please turn the frigging lights off.

Everyone has a price. I believe we will sign Kalas and then just need one more quality centre back if we sold Webster. Tamori would be amazing signing. Or Ajayi would be amazing too. Or the Arsenal guy that was on loan at Charlton. Or even Trevoh Chalobah on loan who is naturally a centre back. They're all off the top of my head, bet there's more out there too.

So you don't think the anyones looking? Seriously?
Many on here have had our CB pairing up with the best in the division, Websters a footballing CB , that fits with the way many teams play now and age and experience are good. Add the fact his wages aren't massive, his fee wouldn't be either (in Prem terms),  and he could well improve. I'd be amazed if he wasn't on teams radars, it would be rank bad scouting if he wasn't.

Good knowledge! How do you know this? Not doubting you, just interested to know how you have knowledge of the intimate details of Kalas’ life ..

I do know yes. No problem

So you said you know he’s bought a house in Bristol because ‘someone said on here’ - but now you say you ‘do know’ - which is it?

So, again, how do you know he’s bought a house in Bristol? It’s a reasonable question to be asked on a Transfer Forum ...

Of course ‘bigger’ clubs are looking at Webdini, just as they’re looking at every other youngish and decent defenders but it’s not something that we as fans weren’t aware of....then a Redtop with a dodgy reputation comes up with a 2=2=5 

Let’s not forget that these sports journalists are simply trying to fill the sports columns and sell newspapers.

Did Webster cost £3.5 million, thought we got him for a fraction of that or am I mixing him up with someone else?

Apparently he bought an apartment in the new The General near the centre.

I really hope he has - he is a fantastic player - but ‘apparently’ doesn’t fill anyone with confidence...

You're mixing him up, Webster was highly thought of by Ipswich and cost us closer to 4 million than 3.

I think most players at the club have a price but for me if we are going for it this coming season we MUST keep him. 

Best addition to a City back line since Shaun Taylor.

Going to get a lot of flack for this but I didn't renew my season ticket this year for the first time for 28 years for precisely  the reasons you stated, had a feeling we would lose a number of players again this season, last time we recruited fairly well, this time I have my doubts, sincerely hope I'm wrong and I'm eating humble pie and getting a half season ticket in December.

I'm adamant that Webster won't go unless we are receiving a fee of £20m+.

However if he were departing I'd hope our scouts have been looking at John Souttar of Hearts.

Souttar is an odd one. Always felt he's had far more potential than he's actually displayed in his performances.

RE Webdini £25m starting point.

We shouldn't stand in his way (bare with me here), it's not what we do and we don't want a reputation for not selling to the prem - it is short sighted in that it will put doubt in the minds of anyone looking to sign and use us as a stepping stone, I think £17m is a reasonable fee for an experienced relativly young defender at this level. 

Would we be happy to sell Webster if it meant we got Kalas and a Prem level striker?

I think every player has a price, and 17 is too cheap. We will likely get 17 for Kelly after extras. Webster has to be 20 minimum. I think city might even ask for more than that and won't sell this summer because teams won't spend it.

Next summer after hopefully another great season, or maybe even better season, his price only goes up. And teams might be more willing to spend real crazy money.

If the message to these young players is you have to likely be with us 2 years before getting a big move to prem, then that's still a great message. Not many would expect to make such an instant impact as Webster.

Appreciate that everyone has their price but selling Webster would be a disaster - we’d be in a position (as it stands) to nearly totally have to rebuild a successful defence, we’d have to replace Kelly, Dasilva , Kalas, Pisano and Webster - imagine that would cost a fair whack itself

I remember being surprised at how much he was when we signed him. Am sure it was suggested the 3.5/4m was the upfront fee but that it could rise to around 6 or 7m with add ons.
