Check It Out!
Just an observation that he wasnt given a squad number, post transfer window.
Im sure they can and im sure given our situation hes a live option, like you say just seems weird id at least have him training with the seniors and in particular getting up to speed with the zonal marking system, to be honest thats my biggest fear with our rejig in defense, it took Keane and Zouma until mid January to get to grips with it.They can draft him in as appropriate. Does seem odd though.
my mate is his agent, the lad seems happy, settled & focused on his future with us from what I have seen...surprised to read he’s now in the final year of his contract. I suspect that is something the club will be looking to address. Hope the lad isn’t looking to let his current deal run down.
That is a slight concern isnt it!...surprised to read he’s now in the final year of his contract. I suspect that is something the club will be looking to address. Hope the lad isn’t looking to let his current deal run down.
not last night he didnt..Feeney was outstandingVery telling he has clearly leapfrogged Feeney... Of all the youth the only ones with a realistic chance appear to be Gibson with Astley and Gordon the year after... I would have no issue if Astley was the back up RB and got some minutes.. that would solidify that we actually see him in the first team one day.
Still issues here;Hasn’t he signed a contract yet?
who would turn down the opportunity to be rooted in the U23s league??? Only a madman, surely!!
...it is, Zat. I was convinced we’ve offered him a new contract, but somebody ITK (apologies, I can’t recall who) said we’ve not been in touch with his representatives. I like the lad, but perhaps Brands isn’t convinced the ‘additions’ are worth paying and we should cut our losses.Still issues here;
1: Im confident if he gets in the first team for cameos we will need to pay Newcastle. It's approx £1mil rising to £6mil.
2: If hes stated he doesnt want to extend his contract then whats the point of us forking out more cash to Newcastle...
3: If were waiting till Jan to sign a CB then send him on loan were also stuffed as he still may not sign a contract.
4: If were holding off until he shows something to get onto the bench at least before deciding what contract level to offer.
Lots of variables here...strange situation.
