Apparently gone to Blackburn for 1.5m. Seems a shame.

If so, he probably wanted 1st team football. Seems a bit of a shame indeed since Distin, and Jags to a lesser extent, are getting on a bit.

Thought he might make it. Sad days for Irish football, we just don't produce the talent like we use to.

More on this from SSN.

Blackburn are expected to sign Republic of Ireland centre-back Shane Duffy from Everton for around 1.5million. The 22-year-old spent most of last season in the Sky Bet Championship on loan at Yeovil Town.

Me too. He did feature some, was it 2 years ago, and I felt he had loads of potential. He almost even scored from what I recall - he had a header in the cross bar I want to say.

Anyway, this will probably mean we'll be looking at CBs before too long with Stones being the only back up now.

Its a shame for the lad, no doubt we will buy him back in a few years for 10/15 million, Good luck Duffers.

Ha! Totally forgot about him! I suppose he's available when he's not muscle fatigued...

Mistake! He would have got 1st team football this season with our ageing defence. Martinez obviously didn't rate him.

Disappointed, really as it's good to have kids coming through the system. He was perhaps a bit more of an old school defender and I think Martinez is looking for passers of the ball, but I think he could have learnt to pass a bit and we needed someone against Arsenal who was just going to put their foot through the ball or get their body in the way.

Also hope we put in a decent sell on clause in the contract ala Adam Forshaw.

If Duffy impresses he could easily be snapped up by a promoted/lower half premier league club.
