What Salary Cap is the 'SL 2' or Championship operating under?
Currently the Championship is 300k (with dispensations for some clubs)
It would have to at least double for Fev to sign those three. They would probably have to offer 30-40% higher wages for them to consider moving and not forgetting the transfer fee which would be involved.
It's like Salfords 1m bid for Tomkins but on a lesser scale. Just a publicity stunt, did Fev really think they could make Crabtree want to leave Huddersfield? Not a chance.
Fev are not going to sign players of that calibre for a good 3 years. If these type of players are available then Koukash will have them as his pockets are deeper than Fev owners by some distance.
They'll start making reasonable bids for players soon I imagine.
I heard mention that the cap will be £1m next year. We will be needing a sprinkling of this calibre of player if we are to go up at the first attempt.
Was it a publicity stunt? I believe a geniune offer was made, but I'm sure we didn't expect to receive a positive answer. It's a clear statement of intent designed to grab the attention of players and agents and of course a bit of crowd pleasing for the faithful.
It's certainly got us plenty of publicity, those who think it's joke had better watch out come 2016. This club is deadly serious in it's intentions.
