With Sess, I think it comes down to if the price is right. He has one year left on his contract and can join a foreign club for £500k in a years time.Yet he didn't look convincing in the EPL.... So financially what represents the bigger gamble?
£6/7m for untested.
£40m for tested, but not impressive.
If we can sort something in and around the £20m-£25m mark I think that's a great deal to be had. £40m not so much
