    Excellent player technically but still work to do on the end product, in fairness maybe needs more game time than he will get at Tallaght. Would be a good signing.

    Doubt that will happen. Probably still outside our pay rate and to be honest I think our priorities are elsewhere given the players we already have signed up.

    Wouldn't mind him at Pats either. Himself and Benson would be nice.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    From Derry City;

    We will sign Sam Bone today or tomorrow (I know very little about him)
    Conor McDermott will leave permanently very shortly, probably the next few days
    Darren McCauley will go (intention is to go to Australia after Christmas , is not really that interested in playing full time football)
    Barry McNamee may be leaving (head not in it, not enjoying football and hasn’t been since leaving Derry)

    Junior coming back still a possibility. Parkhouse will not be barring a significant change there.

    Id say Byrne would attract a tasty fee anywhere above 500k.

    The lad is a very good player (I would love it if he was playing for Dundalk), but the Dublin media hype is obviously sucking many in.

    Over €500,000 for a player who recently failed to impress at Kilmarnock and has gone through Blackburn Rovers, Wigan and Oldham between 2017 and 2018 - I just can't see it

    With Grace being 27 in a few weeks its pretty much now or never for him to go across so unfortunatly can't see him turning down a move if he gets an offer.

    Can't see Rovers accepting anything under 500k for Byrne until hes into his last year of his contract.

    If Byrne does go for a significant fee then it shows merit to the business model being built at Rovers. That would be in the ballpark of €1.3m in a few seasons. Signing back players rejected in England, offer decent contracts, and get them enjoying football and show why they moved in the fist place is a worthwhile gamble. If only we had been able to get Towell, Horgan and Boyle on longer contracts with a few sell-on clauses in the way we managed to get Duffy and Gannon to do it would have softened their loss. Down side is of course losing high calibre players from the league and for Rovers to lose Byrne would be a kick in the teeth considering the teams development and momentum building for next season.

    So far, players rumoured to be on the way out of Oriel dont fall in to the irreplacable category. Maybe a fit and interested Benson is a significant loss and not giving Dummigan a go at left back to see how he manages there could be a mistake.

    Just wait till you see what In Jack goes for, in the end. It will be considerably more than €500k let me tell you.
    Interesting to hear talk of Benson leaving dundalk. I'd have him at Rovers no problems.

    I honestly dont get why Dundalk fans dont rate the league's best player. It's getting stupid.

    We heard something similar about Michael O'Connor going to Burnley for mega money a few months before Rovers offloaded him to Finn Harps.

    I don't doubt that Jack Byrne is likely to head back for another crack at English football, I just doubt that any club will pay that sort of fee for him

    Stupid?

    You are embarrassing yourself

    Read what I posted again where I said he is a very good player and that I would love if he was playing for Dundalk.

    He certainly is rated and Dundalk fans would have him at Oriel undoubtedly. It's different from questioning how he would do in England again after chances already had. Valuing him in and around the 500k is based on previous transfers no doubt. The same questions would be asked if Hoban was looking to go back to England, McEleney also. Dundalk fans have been questioning what McGrath has shown this season that would suggest a successful move across the water as is rumoured, that doesnt mean he isnt rated at Dundalk.

    Benson is looking to get his off field carrer going so semi-pro football is what he has said would suit him. Money might talk but it would suggest that playing FT at Tallaght wouldnt be on the cards. But who knows, maybe not having any commute will provide the additional time he is looking for.

    To talk about Fats, Hoban or McGrath in the same breath is Byrne is ridiculous. Duffy at a push perhaps, but Byrne is streets ahead of most.

    If he wasn't breaking people's legs he wouldn't be playing in this league.

    i wasnt making a comparison, simply saying that similar questions would be asked about any player who had multiple shots at a career abroad that didnt work out - including Dundalk fans on Dundalk players. Byrne isnt being singled out!
