£100k with add-ons is a good offer and I imagine we'd take it.  A shame that we're not in a better position in which we could develop him further ourselves and increase his value in the future.

Why take it though? He sounds very promising to be getting that sort of alleged attention, give him some subs appearances and sell him as a full pro with match day experience.
Plus the fact that we do need a striker, maybe he's already here.

A striker with 100 grand on his head for championship club surely he should have had a bit more of chance with our goal shy league two status. Remember tony ford if there good enough than they are old enough in my book

I believe it's his decision.  We are entitled to compensation if he signs with another club as we have offered him pro terms, but I don't think he's actually signed with us, unless someone can put me right on that.  If he wishes to go to Middlesbrough, we'll just have to accept the £100k and move on.

Yeah, re-reading the tweet says he was 'offered' terms. I'd like to see some clarification, could be a shame to lose him over terms

I'd let him go and wish him well on his way. Likely to have better chances to develop away from here and may well come back one day a much better player. Also raises the prestige level and visibility of GTFC academy amongst the league's bigger clubs so may open the doors to future business. A shame it's this way but I think our academy is best served generating saleable assets, not necessarily GTFC first team prospects.

Said a few times last year that I thought the lad has a better all round game than Rose and was the better long term prospect. He really impressed so I'm not surprised he's got interest.

Sad thing is it just shows the state of the game. Anyone who shows any promise is just hoovered up by the big boys.

At his age, who can blame him for taking whatever they're going to offer. But I think he'll be better off staying here. He'll definitely get chances here and as long as he continues to develop his stock will increase. Big danger he goes to 'Boro and just gets eaten up alongside another god knows how many 18 year old strikers with potential.

Take the money, let him go.

He will not prosper at Grimsby. Even this manager who professes to want to play young players will jib at giving the lad enough match time to really improve. In the meantime he plays for the Reserves at a relatively low level when he could be at a Championship club getting higher quality games and a loan out when he's ready, maybe even back here.

Bite their hand off for it! if he doesn't prosper we're £100k richer, if he does then we still win.He's only played about 30 min of first team football so he's hardly an integral part of the team.

i'm sure our Beloved Supreme Leader will spend the money wisely...........
