35m. Not as good as Emi but carries the English player premium.

How many home grown midfielders are there of his age in England who are even an option and would see a transfer to Villa as progression?

But we may also sell him under the financial value as we don’t know the other parts of any story - a release clause or any other informal agreements made back during the period he and emi were clearly restless. It could be that we agreed with them both at the time that we would cap an asking price if promoted if either wanted to leave, given the financial reward for promotion (which let’s face it would have been much more difficult without them) would be greater than the additional fee we might have been able to squeeze.

Of course we would also know that if they’d both continued to wobble like they did until “rested” last season, their transfer values would have dropped anyway.
