Philogene and Town 'In Advanced Talks'
Thursday, 4th Jul 2024 16:28

Hull City winger Jaden Philogene is reportedly in advanced talks with the Blues and keen to make the move to Portman Road.

The 22-year-old former England U21 international is one half of a £35 million joint-bid Town have made for Tigers pair Philogene and centre-half Jacob Greaves.


According to BBC Sport, the Blues are hopeful of signing Philogene, who joined Hull from Aston Villa a year ago, with talks at an advanced stage.

Earlier today, it emerged that a proposed switch to Barcelona is now unlikely to happen due to complications.

Hull owner Acun Illicali is reported to have confirmed that the interest from the Catalan giants was real but the player believes a move to Town would be the best option currently. It’s understood the Barcelona deal was set to be a loan with cash later on down the line rather than an up front fee.

Londoner Philogene, who has two years left on his Hull contract with the club having an option for a further season, joined Villa’s academy from the Pro:Direct Academy and spent spells on loan with Stoke and Cardiff City prior to making his £5 million switch to the MKM Stadium a year ago.

As well as the Blues and Barca, Everton, Crystal Palace and West Ham United are also believed to be keen and Villa are understood to have the option of a buy-back.

Wanna get excited but Toilet thief has never been a reliable source.

Fingers crossed it is actually progressing and Greaves is on the way too! C’mon Ashton!

Be an unbelievable signing, this. He's quality and a very very good age. The way the market is (although i don't agree with it) he could be worth a fortune in the future.

Just watched his clip-reel and while this only shows the best of any player, this lad looks class.

Phil doesn’t tend to put up random rumours and whatever you think of the BBC they don’t go in for wild speculation. I’d prefer it to be both but I won’t be greedy. I see him as an upgrade on Whittaker although at a much higher cost probably. I hate to say this as well but probably an upgrade on Broady… who despite me liking him… goes missing too often in games which you just can’t do in the prem.

Would be a fantastic signing and fascinating to see what McKenna can do with him as he clearly has raw talent oozing out of him. Come on Greaves, we need you too, you will get a full season of Premier League football working under the best young manager in the League.

Am I the only one that thinks this is a lot for two Hull players?

35m is split how?

The defender surely isn’t worth more than 10m, so are we classing this player at 25 (more than Hutchinson?

Not sure these stack up personally for players with no Premiership experience at all.

Happy to be proved wrong though.

Does an Irish sounding name qualify you for Ireland? It’ll be great to have four or five new faces at the shirt launch including a GK. Exciting times COYB

jutever Mick was right about "be careful what you wish for" because we were immediately relegated and struggled for years in League One, then we got investment and things changed.

Bringing him in will hopefully enable us to play even more sexy football ! We are going to attack the Premier League, just like we did in the championship...yes a massive step up and neith
er OH nor JP have seen prem football but fair play to all involved in having some balls. If KM was in charge of England then it woukd be coming home!

Looking promising .Ashton knows how to deal.

Reality 2021.. it’s more about what we have to pay. Chelsea’s need for Hutchinson was minimal given their squad, but their need to sell for PSR was high. Hull are potentially selling us their two best players. Price is more about circumstances rather than rating the players. Do you think Haaland is a lesser player than Antony? But he cost city a hell of a lot less than Antony cost Man Utd.

So with all these exciting signings coming in, whose name are we all going to get on the new shirt?

If Leif Davis at £1.6m can be worth £25m in 2 seasons, think what KM is going to do with this talent! What I like about this is that we are investing in identified potential rather than finished product at 4 times the cost. Bring it on.....
