The decision by Wolverhampton Wanderers to sell left-back Barry Douglas on to Leeds United – especially for a paltry £3million fee – didn’t go over well in the fan base and summer signing Jonny Castro certainly had some big boots to fill.

With the Scottish international being hugely productive with his assists in attack as well as doing his job defensively, the jury has been out on the 24-year-old as the Spaniard has needed time to settle into the club and the country following his arrival from Atletico Madrid but he has featured in all four games for Nuno Espirito Santo in the Premier League so far this season and he had a particularly fine showing in the weekend’s victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium as we picked up our first win of the year.

If the early signs are anything to go off though, the club may well have made the right decision as many would acknowledge that Douglas’ real strength was on an attacking front. Jonny is more assured defensively, even though he lacks more offensively but with the players at our disposal further up the pitch that is probably a better balance for us.

  • Compare all you will but for a paltry million fee Douglas helped get you get to the prem in style ,hes a lucky charm all round and we have him now at Leeds.
    Thanks for that

    • I think I’m aware of that and believe me, I wish him well – you’ve signed a cracker and I think he should’ve been given a shot at the top-flight.
