Bilic pulls plug on nacho deal

Sullivan had done deal between clubs and player but bilic has vetoed deal as bilic thinks the lads unproven.....baring in mind bilic was determined to get zaza last season and look what happened there well his heads well and truly on chopping block now

why did mr bilic not say know to signing this player a lot earlier? we had allegedly been chasing this player all summer so why wait until a deals in place and suddenly say no...i expect many of you boys will be pondering the same question.....maybe we will get hernandez but this decision and its timing is most peculiar to me

All ive read is that iheanacho is in advanced talks with leicester (who have been after him for a while) & that the player is very keen to join them...wheres the proof that it is slav thats knocked it on the head??i reckon its idle gossip myself...

and they are saying it came from the club! and wowza like they are saying on there why would the club come out and basically throw Bilic under the bus...if he did not want him surely the club could of said something along the lines of it was to much money or the player didnt want to come and dealt with there differences behind closed doors but to just say yeah we did the deal but bilic said no they are deflecting any criticism from themselves and onto the manager that does not bode well....how could anyone stay in the job if that was the case.

Not sure what to believe, it does suggest there is something wrong with the relationship between Sullivan and bilic. Could this actually be the start of the end of bilic? Got a feeling he could go before the end of the window if this is true. 3 months wasted if true or he has been thrown out under the bus

Personally i dont get why we were after him in the 1st place. While the timing is bad it is true that he isnt proven

unproven? hes played 46 times for city ffs. ridiculous. sub or not is the remit now that the striker should have 300 games under his belt? if its true then all I can say is bilic hasnt a clue about a decent player. nacho is darn useful with great pace too.

Sorry but you cannot judge his ability based off 30+ sub apperances for a team like city that will literally create at least 2 tap in oppertunities a game for him. He is not worth anything more then 10-15 mill at his current ability.

sorry but the fact that he plays for Man c, coming on for the likes of aguero tells me he is more than good enough for us. its all opinions, but mine is that your estimation is what clubs are paying for turd strikers these days. not a young, promising, highly rated striker that has scored goals in the prem already. he's also CAF's most promising young player. 25 mill? its a snip. unproven? not a chance.

If city didn't rate him there wouldn't have been a buy back clause, they must have some thoughts he's gonna be the mutts nuts or why bother?

then he would of gone for money out of our reach so like it or not sometimes you have to take a chance..i just wonder if last seasons disaster is still playing on Bilic"s mind and is looking for a guaranteed striker but of course there is no such thing...you pay big money you are more likely to succeed in that respect but we cannot do that...if he is so unsure then overlooking defoe because of the 3 year contract instead of the 2 years we would of offered may just come back to haunt us.

Just out of interest McBikerman are you saying Ieanacho is a better signing than Zaza?

about Bilics player judgement in all honesty....he really pushed for zaza amongst others and thankfully we only loaned to buy because he just did not seem to suit us or the english game...nacho has at least got experience in the prem which cannot do any but help...so in that respect i would say he would be a better signing.

Apparently, bilic pulled the deal because we now have 2 right backs and don't need another.

I don't get it. I see we are now linked with Ndiaye -- now there is a good example of unproven. Also linked with Arnautovic. Tidy player at times but 22 goals in 125 appearances in four EPL seasons doesn't exactly light things up. For comparison, Carlton Cole had 29 goals in 123 appearances in the four seasons from 2007-2011.

I don't know how ndiaye is suppose to get a work permit if this is true.

asking for it not to be granted!! a midfielder doing wonders in the turkish league coming to west ham mmmm seems familiar to me....guess the siggurrdson deal not happening now...

Arnautovic also plays on the wing. N'diaye an attacking midfielder. Yes we need strikers but we also need depth to other positions.

Does anyone know if Leicester have confirmed the iheanacho signing? Perhaps things are not that straight forward for them either?

because of the court case regarding his image rights battle...that was the last i heard.

we were led to believe the deal would go through straight away if bilic had said yes. So er are we saying that was just bullsh1t then? God Sullivan just drains me.
