David Gold has confirmed the Manuel Lanzini loan deal confirming that the club has an option to buy at the end of the season.

And ClaretandHugh has learned that even the fee has been arranged with his parent club Al Jazira  and is believed to be in the region of £5-£6 million.

We were told: “He looks a real player and the fee is agreed should we take up the option. He’s looking the part and a deal could now be on.”

Slaven Bilic has declared his admiration for the player explaining that he has made a real impact and that he and Dimi Payet are a real force.

And Gold – in his latest ‘From the Boardoom ‘ piece on the official site at www.whufc.com declared:  “We have an option on him at the end of the season and you need to see him over the whole year and see someone perform at this level on a consistent basis.

But if he keeps putting in the displays that we are seeing at the moment, then the manager will keep picking him.”

  1. If it’s bee agreed then push it through now,he is not going to get worse over the rest of the season,
    Alfitano leaving leaves a space and the we could hire a player in January if needed,
    But just hope the deal holds up next season

  2. If he keeps up the standards he has shown so far he will be well worth 5 or 6m.Lets see how he does over the whole season though 😉

  3. Lanzini & Payet are just the sort of players we always wanted. For all the talk of this manger or that one, Bilic has been a great decision in my opinion. He is a players manager. Not like we had before & the table shows it. Early days yet but certainly headed in the right direction. Happy days.
