I’d say in the current market as a natural goalscorer I’d hope he wouldn’t leave for any less than 2m if I’m honest. I reckon Lowe should put him on pens so he can get 20 goals this season in L1 which will double his value to the club.
If we get that sort of money then how extremely lucky we were that someone saw his potential like they did with Mike Cooper and offered him his first contract. We should be extremely grateful to that person.
Mike Cooper's ability as a youngster was obvious. Luke McCormick joked with Rhys Wilmot that a 16 year old Cooper was going to retire him and have his shirt. The youth set up which convinced an Exeter lad to be at Argyle instead of St James's Park deserve all the credit there.
As for Adams, he didn't play the tactics which would have let Jephcott thrive. And there is absolutely no way Adams would have taken a 19 year old from his loan at Truro and given him a few months in the first team at the expense of strikers like Dom Telford, Ryan Taylor, Zak Rudden and Byron Moore. Alex Fletcher got a bit of pitch time under DA but usually when all else were unavailable.
