I refuse to believe that there would be no one interested in a perma move for him. He's a decent keeperWhy? If no one wants to buy him then the best we can do is getting his salary off the books for the season.
If he does well at Forest he could have a chance here next season if we want him, or we get a decent fee for him if we don’t want him.
He is coming off a season when he missed time due to COVID and barely played so where people were talking 40M a year ago his current value would only be in the 15M to 20M range if we are lucky and Pope moving for 10M suggests even that is unlikely. If he plays a full season of PL football and smashes it then his value rebounds and we can cash in or as others have suggested we might decide to make him our number one if he has improved enough. DDG is out of contract in 12 months unless we trigger the 1 year option so everything is on the table next summer.I refuse to believe that there would be no one interested in a perma move for him.
