you'd have thought but I can't imagine Kenny is on more than £30k a week maximum and even that seems high.
If he goes to Celtic we might get a nominal (fee hundred K) loan fee and and they cover his wages for the rest of the season - again, probably can't see that being more than £750k in terms of salary.
He will only have 12 months left on his deal when he comes back.
It's our job to get fees for players, not just keep loaning them out. He's never going to be a regular here and that was known last summer.
£5m or so now would surely have been doable and would surely have helped us?
think he’s on 15k a week, so anything above 1.2 million I reckon we would have taken to get him off the books. Maybe no one offered that though. So we loan him, then we only need to clear 0.8 million in the summer to turn a profit.
Brands can’t dictate the buying market. If we have a valuation of a player we can’t force teams to meet it. Equally we can’t crystallise accounting losses due to FFP which is why we keep seeing so many loans as it gets the wages off the books and lowers the book value of the player for a future sale or contract expiry.
It all boils down to the same thing though. Most of our players are on contracts that give them an accounting value to us that no one in the external market values them at. We can’t afford to crystallise the loss, and no one will buy them, so we are forced to play them or loan them. Most of them aren’t good enough to play hence the never ending loans. This is all the problem of grossly inept squad management between 2013-2018.
It’s all well and good people just extorting Brands to sell players, he didn’t pick the stock he’s now trying to sell.
