There wasn't any mention of the amount of the first bid, but I'm guessing it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 5m pounds, AZ are probably asking 8-10m. I'm hoping those numbers are way low and he'll go for a lot more, but realistically PDC is probably only bringing in a few players and not looking to spend too much, so I figure he'll bring in 3 or 4 players and only spend about 20-25m

This of course is all wild speculation based on...nothing really, intuition and the Ouiji board, but it's fun and I invite you to do the same. I'm hoping to hear more about this soon, so if anyone has any other information about it, that'd be great.

According to Greg Seltzer at MLS the reports of the offer being rejected are false. That comes from a Dutch report that came out before the MLS report which confirmed the rejection as false straight from Earnie Stewart himself. So apparently it is actually being considered.

I thought I saw on twitter that the initial offer was for 6m pounds.

This might sound selfish but we're one year away from the World Cup, I rather see Jozy continue his streak and keep his attitude positive with AZ than watch him starve for goals in the EPL. I'm not doubting Jozy's ability to score in England, that boy definitely has the material to succeed in the highest level but I'm worried it could affect him in preparation for the world cup.

This. It would be an uninspiring move.

First, congrats on your first post!
Secondly, it did sound selfish - never post again! Just kidding =)

I completely understand what you mean, but at the same time they play a very different game in Holland than in England, and I think that the varying styles of play and much more physical style of the English league could better him as a player and give him the confidence he needs to take on anyone in the WC. If it were Swansea and not Sunderland, would you still have an objection?

I have a feeling most fans are going to assume that he's going to fall back into the same funk he was in at Hull, but Sunderland would be much better for him than Hull was, they play through the midfield rather than over-the-top long balls.

Sunderland isn't bad. Di Canio wants to play attacking football. Southampton would be good as would Everton.

Seriously? Did you really just say he should go to either of the Manchester clubs? Really? I don't even think Spurs would be a terrific idea. Everton would be good but the others? C'mon man?

Jozy, at 23 is in prime positiont to transfer to a mid table EPL team (like Fulham, Everton, etc). He can sign a 3-4 year deal, and after two years if hes scoring goals transfer to one of the big dogs as a 25-26 year old proven goal scorer. Then he'd be a key cog for Man U, man City, Arsenal, or Chelsea going into 2018 WC. But hes not there yet.

I could see him replacing Adebayor at Spurs, but that's kind of a long shot. I think Swansea would actually be perfect, I can see him playing really well with Michu.

sunderland actually has some decent talent, but id be concerned about the management. actually an american owner (ellis short - a dallas-based private equity tycoon with some shady past involvements) keane basically left because of him. hired but fired steve bruce after a pretty good run, then fires martin oniell, who was doing a decent job, after 1 year and replaces with di canio.

id be surprised if di canio lasts through the end of the year

obviously this short character is very interested in improving the club, but my sense is that he has no clue what he a doing

and di canio has his own issues

if i was jozy i would steer clear

To me Jozy would just be selling out again. It would be a move that he could make for a good cut of money. But there are a lot of clubs I feel he could move to for the same amount of money that would be much better for his development. We've already seen that he doesn't do well where there isn't a good supporting cast for him. Swansea would be good, but really I'd prefer the Bundesliga or even more so the Serie A. I just hope he doesn't make any hasty decisions. He has time to figure this out.

I am a little puzzled by Sunderland's interest to be honest. They paid over 8 million pounds in 2011 for a similar player to Jozy in Connor Wickham. Sunderland have some useful players, but my hunch is he would not be play week in week out with them so he may be better off elsewhere.
