£9m on what would basically be another project is an awful lot of money for us. He’s never played in this league, it’s a big step up for him in reality. Could just as easily be another major flop as a success. There are other options here that are proven here for the same price or less. Jakobson or Weiman at Bristol for example would almost certainly get you 15-20 goals, granted Weiman is 30 but if he helped us out of this league it would be money well spent
I guess our club believe he's a better players than Jakobson or Weiman.

No one has mentioned how valuable he may be for Groningen, can they go out and get another striker of that ilk elsewhere? otherwise why are we not looking! The lad speaks very well and by all accounts wants to come, I believe he be with us by end of the transfer window though.

No Tav was a player who had shitloads of championship experience under his belt. With two years left on his contract. This guy's from a Micky mouse league, with three years on his contract and a club that don't want to sell.
Bit harsh on the Dutch League there Sheriff. There is a range of teams in it but there has been and is a lot of good players in that League.

I fully agree with this. Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robin van Persie probably will too. It’s a very “Middle Englander” mentality suggesting that a league that has produced one of the most innovative and progressive European teams of the last 50 years is a Micky Mouse league.

We didn’t need to sell tav but we still did.
The thing is you don't know that we didn't need to sell him

I could hypothesise that we had an agreement with him last year that if he gave us another season, then we wouldn't stand in his way if a club offered us (say) £10m this summer

I've no idea whether that's true or not, but I'd suggest it's equally as likely as your theory that we just chose to sell him even though we didn't need to
