Already here. And already injured. As you know my old salty sea dog.

Not meaning to be salty. I just think anyone would be hard-pushed to match the pace of those two, when fit.

I know mate they are both very quick, we need a bit of pace, the Botman lad seems to move well enough on clips.

This is a pretty good video of him to watch. You can see some of his faults, he makes a couple of poor clearances with headers in the last few minutes of it. He looks to win the ball in the air more often than not but doesn’t always get good distance on it. I can see the ‘50p head’ Skrtel comparisons in that respect. 
 

As for pace I think he looks around the level of someone like Lovren, not slow but not elite pace like Gomez and VVD, he does look a little slow on the turn to me. 
 

On the plus side he’s an absolute unit and looks really good on the ball. He’s got the ability to ping cross field balls like Virg by the looks of it.

He's no Virgil in the pace department, but he's big and can run. 

 

The second part, I don't know what Ajax were thinking and I don't know how interested we would have been before he proved himself a bit at Lille. 8m is a fair enough sum for an Eredivisie club. Maybe they thought they had enough at CB and decided to cash in.

 

And as for us, we normally wait before players prove themselves at a high level before spending on a player that will integrate right away in the first team. With the desperate situation we're in, maybe a great half a season is enough for us now. 

 

And yes, the link kind of makes no sense, but not because of that. More that I'm not sure why Lille would sell him this Jan. 

 

Anyway, I think he has high potential. Whether it's for now or the future, I think he'd fit the bill as 4th choice. Let's see. 

 

 

As for why Lille would sell is perhaps they're skint despite them telling everyone they're not. Or he has a release clause.

I haven’t seen him play, but a very good friend of mine is watching a lot of ligue 1, he’s also a sad bastard and difficult to please, he told me he’s been very very good at Lille.
