I brought him in an arsenal career he did what was needed and got on the score sheet the odd time but there's nothing OMFG about him, 5 million would be a good price but not much more.

He's a pretty solid player and did well for me. I got him in 3rd season so prices vary :p

he plays for "my" club and is in RL the best player in the squad. in FM he's a good defender BUT if you are playing possession based football you'll hate him. his PPM really suck. his low decision making seems to affect more his passing than his defensive play. he'll win lots of headers for you, win lots of balls and make vital interceptions but he'll also will often lose the ball lose the ball trying to play his way out of trouble or pass the ball directly to the opponent players (preferably in your team's box...). i'm a big fan of the RL player dante (see my profile picture) but in FM you'd have to ay more than 7m € for him and he just isn't worth it in the game - you could do much better for that money.

You can always play him as a limited defender, and he´s concentration and decisions doesn´t really mind there.g

yeah, we've been really luck to get such a good player for less than 3m €. btw - i think in FM his real problem are his PPM. he didn't let me train them off but maybe you'll be more successfull.

out of memory i'd say first get rid of "likes to play his way out of trouble" and then if possible "likes to play long range passes" as his passes hardly ever arrive to offensive players.

I bought him for my newcastle season, and in season 3 i made him my captain and he got better.

I had him challenge the GK on corners and he scored more than usual :)
