Yeah I think he was signed with the intention of being an all-around or deep lying passer of the ball but with the physical side to his game that would fit in the PL. Turns out his physical game is/was often borderline madness (we did know he liked a card now and then) and his passing wasn’t even remotely accurate or fast enough for our type of game.
Best solution is ofc. that he adapts, he’s still not too old, he might be rotated a bit and he could practice more etc. worst case we could probably get all the money back in a sale (irregardless of why - we are tightly run) and maybe buy someone else.
