He's 24/25 so not a kid, was below average in a League One team that got relegated in 2022, who has gone on to be decent a League Two team that was 5 points away from being relegated out of the football league. Where is the appeal? I can understand it if we were still trying to get out of League Two but does anyone on here think this is the sort of player that would help get us promoted?

I think its unlikely we are interested in him

But only cos hes currently playing in division 4

I know balls all about him

If we signed him id think we had seen something to improve us

The division you're playing in tends to correlate to a players ability, there are obviously hidden gems like Santos but it's fairly rare in the grand scheme of things.

I don't think there are many players in League 1 better than what we currently have have, we're probably in the top 10 for many positions, the issue is that our competition for those 2 automatic promotion places is fierce. Some teams have 5/6 players in that top 1/2 for their respective positions. Who do we have that can compete with Andy Carroll for Reading? because at this level he's going to be looking like a worldie.

Indeed.

A replacement for Lee then perhaps.

Similar player to Lee. Suppose it would be an upgrade if only because he's younger, can manage 90 minutes and has a decent shot on him but I'd prefer better - I guess we're cutting our cloth etc...

Just watched the 42 McCauley Langstaff goals for Notts County last year and whilst you’d have to question the defences he faced he certainly looks a talent but it was also interesting to see how well Adam Chicksen played for them. I was disappointed we let him leave but he seems to have found a good home at County.

Isn't/hasn't he gone to Derby as part of the McGoldrick deal?

How do you know it is not a B team target ?
