Bought this guy for emergency back up for Collocini and Taylor in my Newcastle save.
He played 15 times the first season i signed him, when one of my 2 CB'S got a bad injury i was forced to play. I was scared to but had to.
He seemed solid but didnt class him as my first choice, then second season i decided to give him first choice at start of season and he remained there through out. End of my 2nd season with him i was getting offers of around 20-30 mill off Real Madrid, Tottenham and Chelsea. Rejected them as i thought i found a gem and he has been quality since.
Not seen threads about him or his name mentioned ... Has anyone bought him, probs not as when i scouted him he only had 3 star CA + PA and only cost me around 4 mil .. Here are some screenshots of him 2015.
This should be in surprisingly good players thread but what the heck.
Some think he oesnt look up to much but he has been my best play by far with players even like Ben Arfa, Thiago, Cisse, Lucas Moura, Cabaye, Krul, Tiote, Varane, Corchia etc all in the team he has been far the better and most surprisingly.
