Sunderland after Burke and Britt.

It's becoming more likely that both will leave before the end of August with premiership teams clearly very keen on the duo. If they do leave, I seriously think we're looking at a relegation battle.

Think they will be gone in the next 2 weeks and next season we will be playing league 1 football where we belong πŸ˜€.

Correct for once skegs. Although think only BURKE will leave with britt on a knife edge.

I can't believe that Moyes is not looking for much more experienced and talented players than our two, and he has the whole world to choose from. Britt with a possible dodgy leg not yet fully fit and Twisty totally inexperienced? Come on.

If Britt and Burke go, and I think one if not both will be sold, it will be a sad day for Forest. I know every player has a price but if the powers that be really want us in the PL they won't bloody well achieve it by selling a guy who has the ability to be the top scorer in the championship and young Burke, who is not the finished article yet but is being compared to Gareth Bale in some circles and no doubt has the ability to achieve great things in his career. Money talks and heads get turned but I hope we can hold out and keep both for this season at least.

Hftf i thought things were going to be different under pm but obviously he's as bad as df and for fawaz complete waste of time πŸ‘€.

The thing is player and agent power sadly rule the roost these days in the business that is known as professional football. So if either show a glimmer of the above then there will be nothing NFFC can do about it except hold out for a big transfer fee!

25 million for both

10 for Britt
15 for Burke

I think that's more then fair πŸ‘.

I think half of you would be happy if Britt and Burke went just so you had something to moan about. Apparently Britt was all but signed for Norwich the other day, now Sunderland?! Until they've signed on the dotted line for someone, they're still here.

I think even if both stayed the way were playing will see us in a relegation battle, I'd rather see Assombolonga go than Burke.

People need to get a reality check - Β£10m + fees for either and it's hard to ignore. We've only just come out of FFP and are some way off being self sufficient. There's a business to be run behind the football - regardless of who is in charge.

Even in our 80s heyday, players left us to join bigger clubs.

It's not the owners fault, it's not lack of ambition, it's just football!

Hope we keep both of them.
But if we sell we should be asking at least.
Britt 10m plus clauses sell on fees
Burke 10m loan back and sell on clause.
Bolasie is or as gone for 25m and he's very inconsistent.
Let's not sell for peanuts like we did with Antonio.

I doubt very much that asombalong would pass a medical. Any knee injury that keeps you out for a season and a half is career threatening. Its a risk that any premiership club would bave to be totally convinced that he is over. So i think he stays for a while longer bangs in some goals then take it from there. As for burke. Still not proven at this level but again a smashing prospect. If big money comes in then it must be considered!

Agree0 Disagree1

People on here saying we are mid table at best so why bother keeping them? I'd rather keep them both and show a little ambition.
