are we offering our 'eardleyrehab' service?

or maybe a player that hasn't worked out, and his club have just been relegated... berahino? rodriguez?
Think that is omar. Scunthorpe now interested.

Okay here are the eight figure players on that list...
  1. Jordan Rhodes [Middlesbrough - Sheffield Wed £10m
  2. Scott Hogan [Brentford - Aston Villa] £12m
  3. Manolo Gabbiadini [Napoli - Southampton] £14m
  4. Odion Ighalo [Watford - Changchun Yatai] £20m
  5. Helder Costa [Benfica - Wolves] £13m
  6. Dimitri Payet [West Ham - Marseille] £25m
  7. Robert Snodgrass [Hull - West Ham] £10.2m
  8. Saido Berahino [West Brom - Stoke] £12m
  9. Memphis Depay [Manchester United - Lyon] £16m - £21.7m
  10. Jake Livermore [Hull - West Brom] About £10m
  11. Jeffrey Schlupp [Leicester - Crystal Palace] £12m
  12. Morgan Schneiderlin [Manchester United - Everton] £20m - £24m
  13. Ademola Lookman [Charlton - Everton] £11m
  14. Wilfred Ndidi [Genk - Leicester] £15m
It most definitely wouldn't be - Gabbiadini, Ighalo, Helder Costa, Payet, Depay, Schlupp, Schneiderlin, Lookman or Ndidi.

So we have: Rhodes, Hogan, Snodgrass, Berahino, Livermore. Why would any of those players move to a L2 team?

My thoughts are that this 'tip' has been written to see what sort of speculation it drums up.

*NOTE* The above is not speculation.

I suspect that if there is anything in this story the ten million plus won't be completely accurate meaning it probably refers to Bogle.

There are a few teams trying to cut their cloth and offload some players but the wages they are on would rule us out the running. You look at Ross McCormack at Villa who fits the general description of the rumour but is on 40 grand a week. Scott Hogan there on a similar amount, Berahino is probably on six figures a week at Stoke

villa have probably put the whole squad up for loan. snodgrass also fits the fee and the timing of the transfer. but yes, the wages are on a different planet to us.
