 Nisbet
Topic Originator: The Toun Clock  
Date:   Mon 8 Jun 00:01

Red top paper on twitter reporting that Dundee Utd are back in for Nisbet and expect them to make a move before English clubs do. Neilson has commented saying he knows there’s players in the Championship that can do it in the top flight, Nisbet being one of them. Only a matter of time I’d think, especially with the ongoing pandemic/financial issues.

they cannot come close to the valuation the club have of him. He will not be going to UTD. I would expect after their pathetic attempts in January we would reject any offer from them anyway.

If we are not playing then this will influence the outcome. If our league doesn’t start to the New Year he could sign a pre contract and that is job done. Personally I see him going and the club will have to compromise on the fee unless other clubs start to bid. We also must remember the player will want to be playing football.

Surely it is likely that Kevin will go in the next few weeks given that his contract has just under a year to run and if we leave it too long his financial value to us will slide dramatically.

Mind you, I would prefer that he went somewhere other than Tannadice.

Now that United have come out of the woodwork, others will have perked up their ears. Perhaps the club would be wise to make it known that they would listen to sensible offers.

I think it’s only a matter of time unfortunately. If it’s a Scottish Premiership team then he knows he’ll be able to return to training and matches quite soon. He’ll be getting more money and knows the club will get funds from his sale. I just hope we can get a good amount of money to reinvest on the next Kevin Nisbet, I’d be concerned it all falls into a black hole whilst there’s no other income. Hopefully we get a nice sell on fee into the deal, because if he kicks on at a Premiership club he could earn us a few quid with a move down south.

Can't see how we would get the previous valuation for him, it's unclear the financial situation in England, i.e. Championship filtering down to league one etc..

He may, in his career plan have no intention of staying in Scotland for example.

If he wants to stay in Scotland, well I can't see much of a bidding war 1/ no one has money 2/ he won't interest a bigger club.

In England, at the moment no one has 500k to throw about ( we are talking lower leagues)

I guess if we got a good offer, we grab it with a hefty selling on fee, almost certainly we will need it.

The ball isn't in anyone's court really.

As far as I can see no one is throwing any money, there's no activity at all at the moment, can't see how there can be.

However, in the coming weeks we see the top flight here getting a definite start, what is wrong with one team putting a derisory bid in for him, knowing they can almost certainly cash in at a later date.

This is just The Sun making a guess. Interestingly, it's worked as Hibs are seemingly sniffing about.

Scottish Premier teams know they'll be going back so need to start looking. Dundee Utd are being bankrolled somcould afford to make a good offer but I reckon Hibs would be in a better position and probably a better move in terms of reputation.

He will leave this summer, that's it. But I hope it won't be too Dundee Utd, I reckon Hibs would be sensible to offload Kamberi and snap Nisbet up.

I just hope we get a good sell on fee negotiated into it and us fans don't get the "undisclosed fee" thrown at us when he does go..cause that just tends to show clubs have ended up with a raw deal. I will want to know how much this lad goes for.

How does the restart work. If Hibs made an offer and it was accepted, could a player move and play in the restart?

It depends how desperate we are to sell. Obviously we can demand a sell on clause but if none of the prospective buyers agree to it then it'll come down to how big our need to sell is.

Even if we keep him, we would be lucky to get 3 or 4 months football before his contract runs out.

I'm not an expert, but I am sure the club will need any money we can get, having said that, he is an excellent player, and the board are smart enough to play this as well as possible I believe.

I don't think any clubs will move for any player, their own staff have had to take cuts! But if the bigger clubs get the all clear, then we have a race.

Nisbet has been fantastic for us, his mentality first class, and undoubtedly can play at a higher level than mucking about bottom 6 in premiership.

Considering we turned down £450K from Dundee Utd in Jan that doesn't sound likely. Was reported in a couple of different papers.

I had on good authority that Hibs bid of £450k was knocked back and uniteds bid of £600k was also knocked back. United are 100% selling Shankland but have stated a bid of £3m wasn’t enough. That only drives Nisbets price up and the club handled it very well! He’s a £1m striker in today’s (no covid) market!

If United get 3 million+ for Shankland, we should be demanding 1 million off them for Nisbet. Fact. 750k minimum.

If Shankland goes for a good price, them picking up Nisbet n Hayes would be good business. There's plenty room for Clark too, he sat in behind Shankland most of last season. Add Appere n McMullan in too, that'll be a good attacking force.

Talk of £1 million for Nisbet is a bit far fetched. The only way Shanklands value is relevant is if United want Nisbet to replace him.

No one is going anywhere for anything.

Until there is money sloshing about, Shankland etc. Are worth nothing.

My guess is there will be a one week flurry of activity then silence.

No games are being played, so there is no income yet plenty expenditure.

If it is true ( why would it?) Dundee United need to bank money first for Shankland ( what is the team who are buying him? And what with?) They also need to strengthen the squad ( few of these players are anywhere near Prem. Level) and buy a replacement for a cheeky small valuation.

Nisbet is 23 and has scored around 60 odd senior goals. Shankland is 24 and has scored 100+ at a generalIy higher level. I think any 6 figure offer, with a sell on clause, would safeguard the future of the club in the short to medium term and would be seriously considered.

He'll go for nothing if we don't offload him this summer and no-one has any money. We don't hold all the cards - as some people seem to think.

If there's a bunch of clubs in the English Championship find some cash and start a bidding war then great. If its between Dundee United and Hibs, some of the figures mentioned are pie in the sky.

It’s like it’s passed people by the fact that Dundee Utd are in the Premier League which will restart and be able to generate income as a result and Pars, without any line of credit, are in a league that might not even start this year or if it did would run as a massive cash drain through locked out crowds and lost hospitality.

It baffles me why folk think we have the leverage we had (or even any leverage at all) for the wonderful transfer fees quoted. There is more chance of things deteriorating so much that we can’t pay wages and the player walks away for nothing than there is anyone ponying up a £million to a club in division where the only game in town for the immediate future is survival.

.. 1 negotiate a deal that is suitable for both clubs with a decent sell on clause attached or 2 if they don't want a sell on clause surely we are able to say give us 'x' amount with no sell on clause but obviously make it a decent fee not a an offer that will be enough just to get is through these circumstances.

I really dislike the way United are going about this. Openly talking about a player under contract, and saying they had a bid knocked back in January...wasn’t that dispelled on here with a comment from our board saying no bid had been received from United? Hibs yes.

We’ll be lucky to get £300k for him now. Just the current market collapsing, the money isn’t there that was. I think he’d do better at Hibs to be fair though, Jack Ross is a better manager than Robbie Neilson and would take a better interest in his longer term development in my opinion.

I can't see how anyone has any money to throw on transfer fees. But if they did I'd imagine we would listen and seriously consider any offers as we still have no clue when we will be getting back.

So Shankland will be the first cash transfer outside of the English Prem?

Hmmm so what is this team, how much are they paying, and what are they paying with? Will this cash multi million sum being paid be fine with the players who probably took a pay cut at his new club?

So Dundee Utd. Will then pay £1M for a second tier striker also? Interesting, especially when the players they have are nowhere near Premier level, and also need to be replaced.

If you think we will get even close to £1m for Nisbet I want what your on. We were not getting even close to that in Jan when everything was okay. Fast forward 5 months the club don't have any regular income, they don't have a start date for a return to training or competitions. With the talk of new year being the start although not confirmed, they will be able to offer him a pre contract a cheaper option. My question to you is knowing the facts above why would anyone offer even close to £1m for a striker you can get for 25 percent off that at the most?

Nisbet is 23 and has scored around 60 odd senior goals. Shankland is 24 and has scored 100+ at a generalIy higher level. I think any 6 figure offer, with a sell on clause, would safeguard the future of the club in the short to medium term and would be seriously considered.

Shankland is 25 in 2 months with Nisbet turning 23 this year, 2 season difference when you look at like that. It’s not a higher level at all with the exception of a handful in the premier league nearly 3 years ago and 1 goal in a Scotland game that my granny could have scored. Please remember the wasn’t picked on merit! It’s a shame a pars fan can’t see a real diamond within their own rough. Nisbet is miles ahead of Shankland when he was 21. They’ve both strolled the championship and are both capable. Nisbet will go further than Shankland will and he is a bargain at £1m!!!

He's maybe a bargain at a million in normal circumstances (in your opinion)... But these are not normal circumstances.
Money is tight... And clubs that are lucky enough to have money will know that they can pick off players for reduced prices just now.
I reckon if we get anything near to 500k for him we've done well.
That's if he goes at all of course.
He might decide he wants to stay.

I rate Nisbet mate. Don’t worry about that. Other than the 18 in the Championship this year though, all his goals have been in the bottom two leagues. Shankland has an extra year on his contract as well. As someone pointed out, it’s economics.

from the Sun, doesn't change anything if you ask me

KEVIN NISBET will be living the dream if he becomes a Premiership player.
The Dunfermline striker is a man in demand, with Dundee United keen to land the hitman for their return to the top flight.
Nisbet had a taste of life in the big time with Partick Thistle, but knows himself he probably wasn’t ready.
After being freed by the Jags in the summer of 2018 he joined Raith Rovers, where he banged in 34 goals in his debut season.
The Pars took him to the Championship and he continued his excellent scoring form by netting 23 times last campaign.
Nisbet saw January bids from Hibernian and Robbie Neilson’s United kicked out by East End chiefs as they targeted a promotion charge.
He will always be grateful to the Pars for enhancing his career, but he feels the time is right for a switch back to the Premiership.
Nisbet, 23, said: “I’m flattered to be linked with some big clubs, it shows I am doing something right.
“The journey I have been on the last two seasons has been great and I have managed to show people what I can do.
“All the talk about Premiership clubs is my reward for all of the hard work I have put in over that time.
“I had a spell in the top-flight with Partick Thistle but looking back I probably wasn’t ready for it then.
“I was young and naive, but when I was released that’s when the penny finally dropped.
“It was a case of knuckling down and rebuilding my career by working my way back up.
“I always had confidence in myself that I could score goals regularly, so I went to Raith and John McGlynn was brilliant.
“He gave me the chance to play regularly and get among the goals.
“Thankfully I have been able to carry that on with Dunfermline.
“The manager Stevie Crawford was great to me. I thought he would be able to help me develop my career and that’s what has happened.
“I will always be grateful to them for giving me the chance to go up a level and play Championship football.
“But now I feel I am ready to take that next step in my career and play Premiership football every week.
“There was a lot of interest in January and Hibs put an offer in, and I wanted to go.
“It looked like it was going to happen, but then the bid was rejected, as was the one from Dundee United, and I stayed at Dunfermline. Of course, I was disappointed the move didn’t happen for me.
“But it didn’t stop me performing for Dunfermline for the rest of the season.
“Now I hope the chance comes along again and I can prove it to people.
“I believe I can kick on and do it at the top level in Scotland.
“Everyone wants to play at the highest level they can and I think I can score goals for a top-six side and make an impact for them.”
Nisbet has watched goal rival Lawrence Shankland win international recognition for Scotland with Dundee United.
The 6ft 1in Glaswegian is well aware being capped for your country is the highlight of most players’ careers.
He’d love nothing more than to be selected by Steve Clarke, but knows he must keep banging in the goals to make that a reality.
He added: “I would love to play for Scotland, it is every boy’s dream.
“It’s the pinnacle of your career. To get a call-up from your national team is always an aim.
“Hopefully, if everything goes to plan and I can keep performing and scoring goals then one day it might come along for me.”

The comment in the RM article about Stevie Craw making him a better player is a nice statement and I believe it to be true. His movement off the ball and runs into the channel have clearly improved under Stevie and in fact there is some similarity to when the Craw was our main man.

We have been lucky to watch a young hungry striker perform for us and develop as a player and hopefully return a decent fee. I do see a 250k upfront with additional incentives around appearances, goals, Int'l caps and a sell on % being very attractive to us right now unfortunately.

Maybe you accept that he’s off but I and I’m sure others certainly don’t think the chairman has been quite clear that unless the valuation is met then he’s going nowhere

It’s funny how the talk of nissy going to United has only cropped up again with the talk of shankland going to rangers hobo neilson will be trying to get him at a cut throat price a bit like he has done with every other player he has signed and as has been pointed out numerous times since we don’t yet know when football will restart in this country it’s pretty pointless anyone even trying to sign players

Report today says Nisbet wants to stay in Scotland so the pompey move isn’t happening. How do journalists know this? Do they just phone him? Do they just get told from a friend of a friend? It’s strange that they claim to know personal preferences of a Scottish championship player.

They’ve probably taken it from the interview he did for them earlier in the week where he talks about playing in the Premiership.


“I’m flattered to be linked with some big clubs, it shows I am doing something right.
The journey I have been on the last two seasons has been great and I have managed to show people what I can do.
All the talk about Premiership clubs is my reward for all of the hard work I have put in over that time.
I had a spell in the top-flight with Partick Thistle but looking back I probably wasn’t ready for it then.
But now I feel I am ready to take that next step in my career and play Premiership football every week.
There was a lot of interest in January and Hibs put an offer in, and I wanted to go.
It looked like it was going to happen, but then the bid was rejected, as was the one from Dundee United, and I stayed at Dunfermline. Of course, I was disappointed the move didn’t happen for me.
But it didn’t stop me performing for Dunfermline for the rest of the season.
I believe I can kick on and do it at the top level in Scotland.
Everyone wants to play at the highest level they can and I think I can score goals for a top-six side and make an impact for them.”

Sounds fair to me, he is a player, and he will have an agent.

Would be fantasy to not expect an agent to push for this, or the player speaking what is the truth.

Importantly, if the only offer we accept is from down south do you think he'd reject it?
Absolutely not, if he bangs in 10-15 goals I in the championship that opens up many more doors for him. A career down south would earn him a whack.

He could also be nervous after the early career issues. One thing he will be looking for is whether he can progress and if he feels comfortable with that possibility at the club as well as the money!

Shrewsbury didn't make a pile of money V Liverpool.

Liverpool fielded the reserves, slashed ticket prices, and no TV, so the Shrews made a complaint to F.A. which 7 days ago found in Liverpool's favour.

I don't think anyone has any money yet, until we get closer to playing we will see the financial position of clubs clearer.

I don't think money is the all important thing for kevin, what would Shrewsbury offer apart from a wage. I'm sure he will be looking for development, playing with a team he can give the support and service of others. We may be offered £500,000 for him but as a human being and not an auction item, it may not be where he wishes to spend the next 5 years on a contract. Lets see what he decides and not our wishes.

only 11 make the team,the rest can just but dream.

They seem to think £150k is a reasonable price and if we’re offered that then we should seriously consider it. They obviously didn’t see the £250k we apparently rejected from DU this week and think Dundee Utd will be front runners. If any of the English clubs really fancy it they’ll blow Utd out of the water.

Hate to say it, but for Dundee United Kevin Nisbet would be an absolutely perfect replacement for Lawrence Shankland. It is a no brainer really; he should be a great fit.

Nisbet's a couple of years younger, is an equally effective finisher, and generally has much more to his game.

If he can offload Shankland for a couple of million, which looks likely, getting Nisbet in as a replacement would be a great piece of business.

Kevin Nisbet wil not be going anywhere on the cheap as the "Dunfermline Press" confirms on Page 55.

That much became evident back in January.

Ross McArthur is right to bemoan the constant "Dundee Courier" coverage of Robbie Neilson's pursuit of him.Remember a Dundee newspaper has to sell copy and the best way to do that is appease and excite United supporters.

It is the same nonsense you get when Glasgow tabloids report Rangers.Remember they were "definitely" going to the Court Of Session but it is Hearts and Partick Thistle who are.

As Ross says ,why sell him at a knock down price when we recoup the cash by moving a couple of places up the table?

Shankland is an international class player now and has scored at international level ok it might have been against a lesser Opposition,mind you Scotland might be classed in that category now lol.
so even if we don't really see him as some top international player him pulling on the jersey probably shoves over a million onto his value.

It is a total nonsense that Shankland is valued by United at over 3 million and they offer us £250,000 for Nisbet, who, in my opinion, is a better all round player. I would rather keep Nisbet and get the benefit of him for another season and lose him for nothing than give him to them for that amount.

For both it would be a good time for him to go and the Pars can maximise the fee we get for him. Its the close season also so there is time to rebuild. We were simply too inconsistent last season

The Neilson move could increase the price. The new Hearts manager clearly rates our striker and he is a proven Championship goal scorer. While Hearts have asked their staff to take pay cuts they've managed to find compensation to pay Utd and it is public knowledge they have a wealthy backer. Goal scoring has been a real problem for Hearts in the past couple of seasons. Utd will now have more money and they have their own wealthy backer and will not want to lose out on a target to Hearts after they've poached Utd's manager.

I'd rather he stayed and had another 20+ season with the Pars, but if he must go I'd like to see us get the maximum price. Hopefully Hearts and Utd drive up the price before Portsmouth trump them both.

Robbie Neilson will have to really assess his squad & playing budget at Hearts, offload quite a few of the donkies they have,then speak to Auld Ann about getting funds to maybe come in for Nisbet..I really don't see Hearts offering 300k+ for any player atm however.

We’ve got strikers on contracts here anyway.
