QPR slaps £10M price-tag on Villa target Cook

Paladini told the Kilburn Times: “I tell you, the asking price is £10 million if anyone wants to get Lee Cook.

“There are several clubs after him and we know that people have been scouting him because he’s playing so well this season.

“But I want to make this clear – we persuaded Lee to sign a new contract with us because we want to keep him at the club.

“Maybe nobody will give me credit for this, but I felt it was one of the most important pieces of business we had to do in the summer.”
