I respect Martinez's judgement. For a player who was excellent in Division 2 in March and 5 months later, jump 2 divisions into the championship is a dream for him but a big gamble by the club. CB was a problem position for us last season, so I am hopeful that Ashley Williams will be the "rock" we need.

£400,000 isn't an upfront fee, it includes all add ons. Lets hope he's a good little signing.
