Vital Exeter Interview on Potential Wolves Target

Vital Exeter Interview on Potential Wolves Target

Having recently been linked with a move for Exeter starlet Liam Sercombe, a player few of us know little about, Vital Wolves sought more information on the player and who better to ask than Vital Exeter editor Alan Morris, who's responses are greatly appreciated.

Two Premiership clubs are being linked with Liam Sercombe. Is this a first or has there been previous transfer talk?

To my knowledge this is the first time that Sercombe has been linked with a move away. Along with Wolves & Fulham I've heard Preston, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday are interested too.



What kind of player is he. With all due respect he has three goals to his name? So we are picturing a midfield battler?

A lot of his best performances for us have come from him playing in a midfield three, he's a box to box type midfielder and despite his modest goal tally he has fantastic technique on his shots and I'm sure that as he develops more goals will come. This season Sercombe has filled out a lot and no longer gets muscled off the ball like he used to. His main strength though is his range of passing.

How much would the club expect for him. Figures quoted are relatively slim- is his contract winding down perhaps?

I've heard rumours of a fee around £350k, which is about standard fee that we seem to get for our young prospects (I think you paid similar for George Friend?). I would like us to hold out for more money though as we are in a stronger financial state than in the past and don't have to accept any old bid that comes our way. I believe Sercs has 18 months left on his current deal.



Do you believe he has the quality to step up to The Premiership?

Sercombe only became a regular in our side at the back end of last season so I would say it's too soon and he would be better off staying put with us. One for the future? for sure, he has it all but I think it's a little too soon for the Prem. I would suspect that Wolves need experience to keep them up. We've seen before that moving up the leagues too early can stall a players development but when the offer comes in to join a Prem club I can imagine that would be hard to turn down.

Many thanks again to Andrew Morris at Vital Exeter.
