'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rumour Mill-We Wanted Jayden Stockley

The Clarets have apparantly being trying to sign Bournemouth's highly rated striker Jayden Stockley. However the 16 year old has decided to sign a new five year contract with the League Two side.

The six foot three striker became the youngest player in Bournemouth's history to make his debut at just 16 years and 21 days when he played last month against Northampton Town in their 2-1 defeat in the Football League Trophy Southern Section Second Round.

The player had been attracting interest from a number of clubs including Birmingham, Portsmouth and Wolves as well as the Clarets

Stockley said after signing the new contract:

'A lot of it has just been talk that I have heard, but I do know someone from the England under-16s has been watching. I think there were some Premier League clubs looking as well, but I don't know which ones other than what I have read.It's an honour to be linked with clubs at that level and it will make me raise my game. But I don't want to go anywhere because I'm at Bournemouth.'

Reported in the Mirror and seems to have come as a surpise to everyone. Didn't even know we were linked

He hasn't got an agent, I shouldn't think, otherwise he wouldn't be signing a five year contract with Bournemouth.

Or...he has got an agent who has worked out that he'll get more by shipping out of Bournemouth later after signing a long-term deal with the Cherries now? Or he just wants to be near family and friends in what is a nice part of the world? Bournemouth's not too far from where I live... and I haven't been to a game there for a while...

You have to admire the lad or is it naivity? Any player turning down a Premier League club deserves some credit. We have to remember what we would have thought had one of our promising players turned down such a move when we were struggling in the lower divisions.

A few years at Bournemeouth turned out alright for Wado. Personally I wish more young players would opt to play football in the lower tiers rather than play youth and reserve games at big clubs. But perhaps I am getting old? US baseball has an interesting system whereby smaller clubs are linked to bigger ones, and thereby give younger players some real experience while bigger clubs can help nurture them and have some control over their destinies. But I can't see it happening here.
