mdgoonah41 we are essentially paying £20m for him, because we are getting £10m for turner, and they are swapping spots in the squad.
Not really since we spent 5-6m on Turner just 12 months ago. Also the 10m is 7m + 3m in potential addons.
Anyways, welcome to the club Raya. Much as I really like Aaron, his kicking has gone to shit over mid to recent past and I'm not sure whether that's a confidence thing or something else entirely because we know what he's capable of when he really gets going.
Raya's pretty great on the ball, especially his long kicking, and even though we don't necessarily play it long often, it would be a good option to have in certain situations. Overall I can see this being a good signing for the coming season whether it be directly as a result of Raya winning the spot himself, or whether it be indirectly through the competition he gives Aaron that propels the latter to greater heights.
