donh99 Definite no from me:-

"Injuries have hampered his time on the pitch at Selhurst Park, though, and he didn't play a single minute in the 2020/21 campaign due to injury".


How is that a reason not to sign him?


Agreed, sounds like the perfect fit after the last 2/3 seasons.

Would become, without question, the single worst piece of business ever in a transfer window if it went ahead.

Depends on fitness, whether he is over the injury (and it’s not likely to re-occur)

IF fit and not too expensive he has class, a fair amount of Premier League experience, can get goals, plays wing, what’s not to like

He has scored v Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea etc and was scoring one in three at various levels for England.

IF he is fit enough should do well in the Championship.

Like when he was on loan at Sheff Wednesday in 2019-20 and he scored 2 goals in 13 games?

Has never scored more than 9 in a league season, and that was 11. years ago when he was at Ipswich.

Yeahhhhh, hard pass on this one.

Yet another appalling viewpoint from Snowball

is there even the slightest suggestion from anywhere that we have any interest in him?

Our former manager showed some interest 18 months ago - other than that?

Always thought he was a fairly decent player but yeah those stats don’t look great

Potential was there but seemingly couldn’t get off the injury table

His Premier League Stats are 119 Appearances, average of 54 mins, 19 goals at a goal every 340 minutes

In The Championship 100 apps, averaging 64 minutes each, 24 Goals at a goal every 265 minutes

He plays wing and CF. I don't know how much of each... but a goal "every three games" for a winger
would be decent and it's not terrible for a Striker

In 2013-14 he played 990 minutes (11 games of 90) and scored 8 goals and 3 assists for Wednesday

He clearly had ability then, aged 21, and he's 28.

The point is, he's only ever done it in short spells as a bit part player.

No ta. We want someone who we can rely on to play 40 games well and score goals. Not another overrated expensive permacrock who has never made himself a mainstay anywhere and might continue to get 5 goals from 14 starts and 15 sub appearances if we're lucky and age doesn't make him worse.
