It is.The fact so many write him off before he's even held a ball for us is a disgrace.
The fee is a bit eye watering but this is the reality. Most people have been banging on about signing players from within the league for years and now we are trying that strategy they are complaining about the price. There are no bargain signings within the Premiership, most teams are well off and in a position of power, if you want to sign those players then you have to massively over pay, simple as that.
He wouldn't be my choice but he is still barely out of nappies in GK terms and if we got 5-10 years service as competitive backup or even maybe down the line as number one the fee will look like peanuts.
