What is the Transfer Value of Owen Moxon | BlueArmyBlog | A Carlisle United Blog

First things first, the best outcome for the club this summer is for Moxon to sign fresh terms on a contract extending beyond the summer of 2024, and play his football for us in League One this coming season.

With Moxon being 25 years old, you could understand if his head was turned if he was offered more money elsewhere. A footballer's career is very short and ultimately he's been paying semi-pro for a number of years so will probably want to cash in.

With this in mind, should a new contract not be agreed this summer, then sadly, the club should sell in order to boost revenue. The question is, how much could we get if we decided to sell? I've had a look at some historic transfers of players with a similar profile to get an idea.

First up is Jack Rudoni, who came through the youth system at AFC Wimbledon and plays central midfield. He was 21 years old when he moved from Wimbledon to Huddersfield in the summer of 2022 for a reported fee of £940k (Source). He'd had a solid two seasons in League One prior to his transfer playing 2742 (20/21) and 3335 (21/22) minutes in each season respectively. He also had 4 goals and 3 assists in 20/21 and 12 goals and 5 assists in 21/22. Compared to Moxon I would say at face value that Rudoni would have a higher ceiling, with also a similar goal contribution record, albeit at a higher level and at a younger age.

Next up is Panutche Camara who moved from Plymouth to Ipswich in the summer of 2022 for a reported fee of £580k (Source). Camara was 25 years old at the time of the transfer and had played a good amount of league football in central midfield, including 6459 minutes in League Two for Crawley over 3 seasons and 6263 minutes in League One for Plymouth over 2 seasons. His stats compared to Moxon's aren't as good only scoring a few goals and assists each season, however, he would be classed as more experienced due to the amount of league football he'd played.

Moving on to Ethan Erhahon who moved in January 2023 from St Mirren to Lincon City for a reported fee of £339k (Source). Erhahon was 21 years old at the time of the transfer and had mostly played centre midfield. He notched up a decent amount of appearances for his age making 96 appearances for St Mirren in the SPL. It has to be said, though, that this player is not at all renowned for scoring or assisting. His best season was 1 goal and 2 assists in 21/22.

Last up is ex-Manchester United youth player Charlie McCann who moved from Rangers to Forest Green in January 2023 for a reported fee of £397k (Source). This transfer was certainly one for the future as McCann had played a grand total of 3 appearances in central midfield for Rangers prior to his move. The player had scored a few goals and made a few assists at youth level, but, has never played regularly for a full season of senior football.

My final thoughts are that should Moxon be sold, I cannot foresee it being for the 7-figure sum which we would all want. There are other mitigating factors like if there is more than one club interested and we can insight a bidding war, this could push the price up, however, looking at Rudoni going for £940k, I would be shocked if we could get near that this summer. If Moxon stays and has another great season I think the £1 million mark could be a target for next summer. One thing on our side is that goals and assists can be used as a negotiation currency and if the club could get something around the £750k mark they will have done a great job, though it's probably a bit optimistic.

One thing is for certain, if it happens we will actually never know as the fee will be undisclosed.
