    There's no denying vaulks is a good bloke.

    I once went to watch them train down at roundwood. Vaulks trains just as his advice in the letter suggests, full of energy and with a beaming smile on his face. During target practice if any of the players hit a wild shot which went way over or miles wide they just turn and trudge back to the line of players, leaving the youth lads to retrieve the ball. Not vaulks, if he hits a dud (rare), he bolts straight after the ball and retrieves himself. Very grounded young man.

    Thought it was going to be a goodbye letter because it looks like he'll be off.

    Almost certainly somebody elses good bloke come the summer. It wouldn't surprise me if he stays fairly local.

    What a great ambassador for the club.
    A credit to his parents and everyone who knows him.

    If he's going this summer let's hope we get a decent fee for him......undisclosed anyone.
    I too think he will stay local.

    If anywhere then Sheffield Utd or possibly a little further south to Derby or Forest

    That would go down well with some fans...LOL.

    You must be joking.Bruce will not have the funding,his chairman explained that on his appointment.I can see the Blades signing him when they get all that Premier league treasure to spend.He has improved no end this season and looked very comfortable playing at international level last month.I would certainly not be looking at anything under 3 million and that is a bargain price!!!

    Yes I was joking about Wednesday's.

    He could end up at somewhere like Forest who have the funding, it's not too far to travel from where he lives and he could still do his work for Bluebell Wood.

    EDIT : it's not what you and I value him at it's what other teams are prepared to offer.

    True. by dropping down a division we lose a mighty chunk of bargaining power. Not many L1 clubs sell players for more than a couple of £m. We were talking £15m for Ajayi around November last year. You can now put a dot between the 1 and 5 and that's if we're lucky.

    If he wants to better himself, more money heíll go but is he a Prem player? I donít think so so unless Blades stay down then I canít see him going there.

    If we stay up I can see him staying with us, go down then I wouldnít blame him if he leaves but come on Will you can do another few seasons here surely UTM!!!!

    He's from the Wirral so Stoke City would be good as that's between here and the Wirral, distance-wise.
