Oh, I agree. The biggest problem with a player like him going to England is no one knows him. A manager that is there right now buys him, but what happens when that manager gets fired in 6 months? He's back to being nobody. If the manager doesn't like him, or brings in someone else to replace him, he gets two years with the reserves.
At least the bigger names can get loaned out or sold. But for players like him, you just get lost in the system. They're not on enough money to matter. At least here he'll have supportive managers, and if he ever runs into issues, they'll be other clubs willing to pick him up. That's why having a strong domestic league is so important.
