Send him to Aberdeen on loan, they've been good for Lowe and it can be an apology for taking our player back, think Sibley would be a great addition for them 

Yeah but that would mean me having to go to Pittodrie a bit more again, and I don't think Pittodrie can handle much more of @Inverurie Ram or is it the other way round.

Our future can be secured by selling at the right price and at the right time  our academy products. 

Rubbish. Sell an academy player would not bring in enough to purchase a first team player. If Wolves have enough money to throw away then they would buy someone they would know/hope could fit straight in.

In this case they are investingin their future and when we speculate in SO CALLED BIG MONEY I doubt it would be any more than 1 or 2 million at best

This will be a first big personal test for Sibbers.

Rumours of a move to the Prem, rumours on here regards the fee, (some fanciful) 

Not made the first team here yet.

Some lads would let it effect them and their performances in a negative way.

But I don’t think he will, I hope it pushes him forward.

Few academy stars ever make the transition to high-level first team football, but the academy costs a lot of money. I don't have a problem selling academy youngsters who haven't forced their way into the first team for a few million plus add-ons. Football's a business and that seems good business.

I like Sibley a lot when I've seen him in the U23s - he seems a real stand out there - so I'm a little surprised he's not made Lampard's first team bench so far. Will he get a look-in against Southampton? I expect Max Bird will figure, but maybe Louie should be given a chance to show us what he can do.

Who are the best prospects in academy at present? If Bogle and Lowe are both counted as first team, is it Thomas, Bird, Sibley, Elsnik, Babos, Gordon, AN Other? They're all good and I'd love them all to have a future with us, but I would suggest £5million plus add-ons for any of them would be great business.

I agree - if memory serves correctly, the academy costs in excess of £3M annually which aint chicken feed! That said, I'd dearly love to hang onto Bird and Sibley who look a cut above the others, talented as they all are. They're two very exciting young prospects for whom, if normal progress is maintained, the sky's the limit.

Sibley and Bird are the two I would definitely not sell "for a few million". They're a cut above any other players we have and up there with the very best in the country for their age based on what I've seen.

I can't see Babos or Gordon making it with us. I'm unsure on Elsnik purley based on the progress of Bird and Sibley. Knight also seems more promising from what I've seen.

Bird, Sibley, Thomas and MacDonald are all ready for first team exposure. However, we have a lot of players who can play in their positions so loans for the rest of the season may be a strong possibility for the latter three. [Forsyth, Malone, Lowe, Olsson blocking MacDonalds path; Wilson, FloJo, Holmes, Lawrence, Waghorn, Bennett blocking Thomas; Mount, Huddlestone, Bryson, Wilson, Ledley, Evans, Holmes, Johnson blocking the others]. This assumes Anya, Thorne, Butterfield aren't part of Frank's plan.

The next two closest to the first team are McAllister and Mitchell-Lawson. Again, a lot of competition to break into the first team. 

Tyree Wilson, Whittaker and Stretton are breaking into the U23s now and could play anywhere across the front three and all show plenty of potential.
