Caddis cash not crucial to PDC's plans

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: ON HIS WAY: Paul Caddis ON HIS WAY: Paul Caddis

SWINDON Town manager Paolo Di Canio has stressed that the Robins’ flexibility in the January transfer window does not depend on the proposed sale of Paul Caddis to Birmingham.

Caddis is expected to convert his loan stint at St Andrew’s into a permanent stay next month, giving Town the cash injection they need to help bolster their squad as they bid for promotion from League One.

However, Di Canio told the Advertiser that his transfer policy in the new year does not depend on securing a substantial fee, believed to be in the region of £400,000, for the Scottish full-back.

“I can’t tell you because we asked something and they didn’t say ‘no, we can’t’,” he said.

“(Lee) Clark (Birmingham manager) only said ‘let me see’. We asked them if they can let us know when they will know, because if they say to us that they can buy at the end of January.

“That’s good but we want to try to do something now. They know this, they were very good, they were positive and said before the first six days in January they would give us the final answer.

“With any other clubs that we are talking that we don’t want it after the 25th or 27th because it will be tough. We said we would give them the first eight days. The first eight days can be enough and then maybe we can give them another two days of negotiation before we go through.

“At this moment I can’t leave a situation.

“Paul Caddis’ situation will help a lot without connecting too many things too much. Otherwise two situations can go through even if they say they don’t have the money and Caddis can remain there on loan.

“I am not strangled or completely under pressure that I can’t breathe. I can work because I have the two scenarios.

“One can be perfect because we have more fluidity and one we have to work more but in my opinion there will be no problem, even if Caddis remains there, to keep something and bring something.

“The two options are good because at the worst I am going to be in the situation where I can keep some good players that we’ve got and bring not two but one that I have in my mind.

“When there is a positive energy you can turn it completely on your side.”

Di Canio has two specific players in mind as he looks to build his squad in January, but he remained tight-lipped as to their identities.

“The one that I have in my mind is not in our league. But there is also one that has already played against us,” he said. “Not because he played well but because of his characteristics. He is a modern footballer that I would have in my team.”

They have started to prepare for their sales already by playing more and more youths
.
So £400k will not be a lot to spend once they get that money in - Butlanf is meant to be going for £6m+ so take Caddis out of that and that is over £5.5m from one player
.
They are then meant to be selling another 5 on top - so will probably raise well over £10m in sales
.
One question is the sell on to Celtic - will this be activated or do we need to see what Ferry goes for first?
.
£450k was the combined fee so do we only pay 20% of any fee we get over that for both? Or do we pay 20% (or whatever the agreed amount was) on any fee over £225k on each?
.
If we do then that would see Celtic get £35k from a £400k deal

The sell-on is per player i.e. doesn't depend upon the sale of both before the payment is triggered....I think Caddis was rated higher as an individual fee as well.
---.
£275K - £175K rings a bell - that was from the Celtic fan club I deal with when I want a ticket for Celtic Park....may be £250-£200 but am sure it went below the £200 for Ferry.
---.
As mentioned above I don't see an issue with them paying the £400K for Caddis as they already have £1 million before any sales....not sure how much has to go directly into debts though as they are in huge trouble....even more if they don't get promoted this season.

It seems that Adam Rooney will be part of any Caddis deal so you can forget about getting 400 k to play with.
Paolo said on BBC Wilts that Rooney will be staying because he likes his professionalism.
The manager says that he hopes to keep Bostock and 2 other loanies keeping the current squad intact.

Cool - that means less "going out" then
.
At £275k we make a £125k profit - so they will get £25k - leaving us £100k profit on him
.
Not too bad in the end considering the situation!
.
Ferry is certainly worth over £50k if Smith went for that recently - so we should make a fair whack on him too if we do ever decide to sell
.
However - I think he will become a proper legend and will be here for years to come - think Championship is his level and he can achieve that with us

Bostock only has 6 months left on his contract, what's our chances to buy him, can't see Spurs letting his contract run down to the end of season, can't see them giving him an extension either. same goes for Ward, doubt he has a future with Millwall and has intimated on more than one occassion he would like to stay. That leaves Hollands and Martin, both have shown enough since they got fitter, if they are the two Paolo is refering too, think they are worth hanging onto given their recent form.

Yeah, Hollands and Martin were the other two Paolo mentioned (had a senior moment and couldn't remember haha ).

I hope my lift remembers to pick me up in the morning as I've not heard from him. I would hate to miss this game, the biggest crowd of the season and the biggest winning margin too.

Cant believe Birmingham will pay that type of money for him, their threatened with administration, only being held of because they have assets to sell in January, cant see any deals going through until they have sold some players, hence why PdC cannot rely on that money even if the board will let him spend it. Still waiting to hear about Terry Gornell, maybe thats dependant on whether we get the Wednesday forward on Loan.

Bostock is going to be interesting as he hasn't played too regularly and I doubt that too many scouts saw more than one appearance....I know a lot of sales are done through agent video but unless he gets a big money offer he must see the benefit of working under PDC.

Not reading too much into it but when I arrived at the CG on Christmas Eve the players were all just leaving and Bostock + an unrecognised were the last two to leave shortly followed by PDC....you never know but I'm sure regular discussions are taking place.

If they do sell then he must be worth less than £150,000 with only 6 months to go....and that is only if we take him on loan with a view to first option on a purchase at the end of the season (provided he still wants to join us), big gamble for anyone else who hasn't seen him play of late - that sort of deal would work well if we get promoted as I'm sure Bostock would join as a leading member of the squad with regular football in the Championship.

As long as Ferry is in form, I'm not too fussed about whether we keep Bostock or not. Good player but I find it hard to see how he and Ferry can be in the same side. We need an enforcer alongside whichever of them plays, and Hollands seems to have stepped up to that role. A strong squad, rotation etc is all very well but is Bostock going to be happy to stay and play second fiddle to Ferry?

Plus come Jan a few of them could become perm - could see Ward, Bostock and Martin signing as all into their last 6 months
.
Ward will be available on a free as Millwall will just want to move him on
.
Martin can't cost much as will be free in the Summer as 24
.
Bostock I also think will be available at a small fee ala Cox and Wes - where a big sell on is included so they benefit if he does reach his potential
.
Hollands and Rooney would then be our only ones in on loan (if we can extend Hollands) and 2 if not 3 of the 4 out sound like they are going - so only Luke Rooney a bit up in the air
.
Add Madine and a fullback and we will be sorted

Nathan has played so well that Caddis hasn't been missed. Caddis the better of the two when attacking, Thompson the better actual defender imo. I always prefer a defender to be able to defend first and foremost, the rest can be developed, and there were good signs of the attacking play improving in the Tranmere game.

Den,

If you look at the lower league clubs, most cannot afford to run a reserve team and nor can they afford an academy. you look at the financials side it makes more sense to borrow another teams surplus. It's good for both sides, youngster developing like Flowers, Givins, Carrick, Milner, Davies, Ward, Robson-Kanu, Ferry, Bostock, Jervis and many others benefited by gaining experience at Swindon. From our side we got the services of players we could not afford to buy or in the case of Ferry and Bostock prove their worth first.

I guess we all have to accept changes in the game, substitutions, loans, off-side rules, back pass rules for goalies (which I hate), were all introduced for reasons to improve the entertainment side, because of the negativity of some that bent the rules to their advantage.

Hey-ho happy new Year and enjoy the game tomorrow, see Pompey have signed david Connelly in time to face us.

Forgot to say, just hope Jervis doesn't come back to haunt us again like he did with Carlise, with Benno not available and McLeod left club already, guess he will be up front with Connelly tomorrow.

Sky just said Brum will be keeping Butt until end of season, so no cash coming in for them for his sale.

Not sure I believe everything Paolo says lol.

In all seriousness 40 odd goals in last 100 appearances for poor sides, he knows where the net is, think he would compliment Williams well and would be good for a goal a game this season.

Wouldn't need mega money either - no signing fee and presumably we could beat previous wages at Barnet and Pompey.

I said on another post that I thought the board may sink more equity into the club and go for it in January. That was before the two postponed games, could have been 4th (2pts behind) with two wins, but to me it would make sense.

A £1m gamble now, while we are in a good moment (Paolo speak), could be a very good investment as you cannot guarantee that we will be in the same position next season.

This could be the reason for the delay and also the reason Paolo was soooo cheesed off with the Colchester postponement.

Just a thought :-)

Also whittingham sent him packing a few days before his contract was up due to the fact he ran 30 yards to argue with the ref after benson had been fouled, his 5 yellow with whittingham furious after he already warned him.

That was before the two postponed games, could have been 4th (2pts behind) with two wins, but to me it would make sense. A £1m gamble now, while we are in a good moment (Paolo speak), could be a very good investment as you cannot guarantee that we will be in the same position next season. This could be the reason for the delay and also the reason Paolo was soooo cheesed off with the Colchester postponement. Just a thought :-) COYMR

I believe the board (i.e. Black) can fund the club in the form of equity (which he cannot reclaim). It, I believe, is how Bournemouth have funded their spending.

It could be a gamble but it could be one worth taking. The extra revenue gained from promotion would be far more than £1m. I believe the club are desparate to go up because of the structural changes that are due to happen (London Red please help here) and we are in a great position to push on.

You have to speculate to accumulate and now might be the time to do exactly that.

Should add that I believe the 65% rule is based on income and is in place to prevent clubs being left with debts.

Money can be put into the club by an investor but this is effectively given to the club and cannot be counted as a loan. They get their money back IF the club succeeds and dividends etc can be paid.

No expert but this is how i perceive the ruling. Perhaps someone can clarify this.

I will take this opportunity to wish all Swindon Town fans all over the world a very Happy New Year which starts with 3 points against Pompey.

Well Paul, Old Father Time ticks on, and no man will ever stop him. Seems you are going, and there are many of us who have had to accept the inevitable. Sorry to see you go mate, but it seems you are settling well with the Brumidgumboys, even if they do talk funny. You did us no harm, and I'm sure you wish us no harm either.

Nice sentiments Wizard and Happy New Year to you too.

Looking forward to the Pompey game, a big rivalry in my family.

Also looking forward to a good strong, finish to the season. We certainly have the squad, the Board and set up to do it. Will our 'high maintenance' manager join us?

Happy New Year again all and can't wait for tomorrow.....and that is just for the dry forecast!![/p][/quote]I no mate... I was only pulling LR leg DarrenSTFCRomain
