Sterling is a decent player who would be an asset. The alternative to signing some decent homegrown players, if you think about it, is an empty space or sign some more shit.
We don't have enough kids in his position who would be ready in time for next season.
Sterling doesn't need to be world class, just good enough to be a useful addition to the squad. He's a level above the likes of Sinclair & Rodwell already. If he becomes a genuine top player than great. If he doesn't, we' ve filled a homegrown position whilst we bring some kids through.
He's certainly way better than nothing.
