CCV gives an air of confidence at CB like few others. I think he could do OK in the top flight. For a broad shouldered chap he does have agility to match his power. Not sure he'll ever contribute a headed goal or go on fast mazy runs, but if I were Woodgate, I'd be pushing the Board to sign him up on a long deal. Great addition to our first team.
We had the opportunity to buy him in January (for c£7m I believe) and our highly competent board declined to pursue it. Come the summer, and the way Levy works, the price will likely be three times that.
Spurs looking for £10mil and Newcastle are also interested. That doesn't look likely then, and for £10mil with one year left, that's a lot.
I definitely like him and he has been solid but not sure for that sort of money when we will be operating on a much smaller budget I imagine.
