    City's squad has returned for pre season training late in June in Neil Warnock's previous two seasons here (maybe Monday 1/7 this time?), I would expect confirmation of Vaulks and Nelson by then because I think they are the most realistic names we've heard so far, along with Joe Day.

    We signed Etheridge, NML, Camp, Paterson and Ward before preseason began, and Tomlin and Damour were in before the middle of July. Las t season we signed Reid, Murphy, Cunningham and Smithies before pre season so I'd fully expect us to sign at least these two before preseason.

    He sounds decent. And a leader. We'll have to see if he can make the step up.

    I put a link to an Oxford board which had almost universal positive opinions of him on here yesterday - the last two Bosmans we got from League One were excellent signings and, like Mendez-Laing, Nelson was rated as quite a big prospect as a teenager. I think it could be a good signing for us, but I don't see any out of Nelson, Vaulks and Day shifting many season tickets for us.

    They're not making much of a dent in the rumoured 10-15m transfer budget either. I wonder if they've got someone up their sleeve?

    Surely the bulk of that money will be for a striker.

    Re: Will Vaulks

    Tbh although it’s frustrating for us fans I understand why any players we might be signing are kept under tight wraps by the club.
    I think the closest we got to any scoops last year was when prospective signings were doing their medicals at Spire (I think)

    It's good. Reid, Murphy and Smithies all came out of nowhere. The club obviously have agents they trust. I think there will be some movement soon, and we'll get a few players in.

    Re: Will Vaulks

    The two mentioned Vaulks and Nelson fit the bill for me ,fishing in the right pool in my opinion ,young energy , skillful , potential ,what could, go wrong

    To my mind all that says is that we are
    not announcing any signings we may already have signed a few

    With Zohore, Madine, Reid, Ward, you could argue we don't need a striker.

    A lot of huff & puff amongst that lot, without any of them being able to blow down the house...

    (except for Reid)

    Need a game changer,fox in the box , free kick taker ,deft touch,the ones above are support strikers in my view .

    The only one of above is Ken , perhaps if he hits the ground running early doors , we can sell him January for good money as I dont hink he can cut it for a season

    Re: Will Vaulks

    I dont get why theres a rumoured 15m budget.

    Cant see us spending anywhere near that unless there are big money departures.

    Where did you get the 15m budget quote from?

    More or less since relegation ive seen talk.of a budget of around 15m on messageboards. Theres even a mention of a rumoured 10 to 15m on this thread.

    I dont think we will come close to spending that and dont believe Warnock has those sort of funds.

    Re: Will Vaulks

    So no one actually knows what the budget for next season is then?
    I often question people who quote these figures on here and usually get the impression the person who said it thinks I'm being awkward for asking, and this one is just the same.
    It's like if people say something often enough it will make it true but no one actually knows.
    maybe the real budget is only what ever we can sell the players we have for, or maybe its 15 million plus what we can sell players for, then again it may be none of the above.
    I don't believe there is a fixed budget decided before they begin. They look at players decide their worth and try to buy them for that. If they think a players is worth X they will bid up to it.

    100% this. If Messi was offered to Vinnie for £20m he'd take it.

    I imagine they have an idea of what they want to spend but if the right player comes up at the right price with the opportunity to shift him on next season for a big profit they'd take it.

    BBC Sheffield saying it's a done deal. £2.1m up front, rising to £3.5m. Sheff Wed (amongst others) interested too.

    The lad has a shot and strangely for City shoots and scores from outside the box , hopefully we can iron out that behaviour. 😁
