IMO we have not seen the best of Jack yet ...10 mill is a snip.
You may yet be right Smudge - the jury is still out. Hearing what GH said about him today though has shifted my thinking - as one of the most skillful English players ever himself, he can appreciate ability ;

Well if all else fails, and next year he is not upto snuff...in todays market can easily off load him to a championship side and not lose any cash...

I would think the same if I saw an advert for a second hand car at half or three quarters apparent market value - it would make me question the motive of the seller.
I think it is more down to them doing us a small favour than a big one as we have had the clause to enable us to buy him every year but City have simply helped us out by allowing us to more or less extend the deal with the fee just going up a bit (essentially really us just paying all his wages). I think if City would have refused to extend the loan deal at any point we would have bought him instead. After his first season for us I don't think anyone would have been looking to buy him for around £10m.

I really dont get the negative comments against him...just what does he have to do to be accepted?...Sure he has an off game now and then like anyone else ...But I simply dont get it...10 mill is a snip for a guy who knows the set up , can handle the set up and has given his all.

Blows hot and cold, one game great two games pish isn't really good enough. If you look at his motm stats on here, often when he's scored or assisted he hasn't been particularly highly rated since his overall performances haven't always been good.

Saying that, he seems to slowly be getting more consistent and was outstanding against Burnley.

I think a 10 mill fee sounds about fair and good business for him.

For what it's worth I assume the deal is already essentially done and will be made permanent this summer and we'll see in due time if he's worth it or not. Far better than Costa anyway if we're judging relative to past signings. Far less natural talent than raph though imo

Good.... that probably means Bielsa is staying maybe for another 2 years. Always works hard, on his day very good, just needs that 8/10 level of consistency to progress to the next level.

That's great news. I think Jack has a lot of development still ahead of him over the next two years and could go on to get an England call up in that period, especially if he works on his consistency.
