Only one year? Now that is interesting.
Regardless, I'm happy to keep him around. Just keep fucking passing.
Why are we only giving him a 1 year deal?
I am guessing that, with the other priorities the club has with retention, it is a comparatively low value deal compared to rival offers. He doesn't want to leave, but doesn't want to commit to a super unders contract long term.
Yep. The fan favourite theory that you can trick players into long term contracts under their market value isn't sustainable. And it's not the way to build a happy squad.Smart contract.
We have a bunch of players off contracts 23/24. Some players will go up in stocks and some down. To keep the balance sheet the club can't go crazy on deals in short term.
