Not so sure

Stoke were prepared to match what ever we offered in the summer. He's still unproven with bags of potential, I'm sure they'd be interested in still adding him. 

Not sure I agree mate. He has shown he has pace to burn and can run with the ball. 

He has also shown that he is incapable of passing, has absolutely no movement off the ball, and seems uninterested in proceedings until he gets the ball. 

Now I agree he has bags of potential, but I think potential suitors will want to see improvement in those weakness's before shelling out £10m +. Because even if we go  down that's what we'll require imo.

No chance.

Yep, I really don't think he will.

Unless he sets the league on light when he returns from injury, I don't think anyone will be interested for the kind of money we'd need to sell him for for it to make sense.

They were happy to spend big on his potential last summer. I don't see this season putting them off, if their scouts still see him as a star that can develop for the future, I can't see why they wouldn't be in for him

Because we will (or should) want more.

I suppose.

But then in the summer he was a Barcelona wonder kid destined for the top. Now he is a young man that due to his flaws is not considered ready to start games for the worst team in the league. Now I know he is still the same player but that puts a different angle on peoples opinion.  

Because let's face it, we are all aware that he could become something special if he is capable of ironing out these flaws (I know I keep mentioning these flaws but they are rather big ones) but there is absolutley no guarantee he will capable of doing so, if there was he wouldn't currently be playing (sitting in the bench) for Aston Villa. 

On to Stoke, after their interest in Traore they went on to sign Shaqiri and Afelley to add to Arnaurovic (sp?) I'd wager that they will not still be interested in spending £10m on Traore given the performances of all 4 so far this season. 

He is a gamble, He was a gamble for us In the summer, one that hasn't paid off for us yet, and he will be a big gamble for anyone wanting to buy him off us, maybe a bigger gamble given that we would probably want at least, if not more than we paid for him. I can't see many wanting to take that gamble in the summer.

Yeah good points. At stoke he'd only be a squad player where in the championship he'd be a key player week in week out. I'd be hopeful he sees that as the better move for his career path.

If we go down there will interest in him from more teams than potentially just Stoke. We'd be in danger of losing all our good / promising players, none of them I'd expect us to keep, including Traore.

Not really sure what has shown so far to warrant any Premier League club paying at least what we paid for him and more likely a lot more.

He might have some sort of release clause in his contract, it's almost certain that he'll experience a drop in wages. He's shown bits and pieces whilst he's been here, if another team comes in for him it'll be more about potential than anything else, basically they'll be signing him for the exact same reason we signed him last summer. I'm sure there will be plenty of interest from across Europe.

I really think people will be surprised at how many players we hold onto.

Maybe even disappointed. Because without selling them we're stuck with them.

Yep unless some really impress on a spirited but but ultimately failed survival attempt then I don't think anyone has really earned a move.
