    No one at the club wanted him to go, we weren't prepared to pay what he thought he was worth.
    As no one has been prepared to pay him that it would appear we were correct and he now realises that.

    So he signed a contract worth £150K a week, so how much was he offered previously and how much did he want?

    I am sure if Toby was available on a free at the end of the season he would have landed nicely on his feet with no problems

    I on the other hand think we are a better team when he is in the side. I also do not see any harm coming from both Jan and Toby. Besides, until Jan signs we do not know of he actually wants to stay anyway.

    I still can't believe that City didn't come in for him in the summer

    As I remember it, and that's not in anyway reliable :(, we offered around £130k which he agreed, then changed his mind to £170k.

    Bear in mind that was almost 18 months ago, prices have changed and he has been stuck on a lower wage.
    All we are doing is back dating his pay rise.

    I thought that his new deal was a basic of £100k plus add ons

    Indeed, seemed like a perfect replacement for his fellow Dutchman; Kompany.

    Not just City. Toby might nit be the best BUT he is better than most and imo solid and reliable (ie not Stones, Luiz, Jones etc)

    Arsenal, Utd, Bayern?

    It’s crazy no one came in for him, unless they were all just hoping for a freebie this summer? £25m for TA in this market is a steal.

    Glad we got this sorted. Hopefully it will go a way to settling us down about the back. Tiny steps

    My thoughts as well, the players will look at Jose and can see he is a winner and are all thinking that they want a piece of that meteorology.

    That might not be what Guardiola wants.

    Why settle for one, single precise long ball when you can achieve the same with 57 three yard passes?

    I think if Poch had stayed Toby would not have signed a new contract

    Toby would have been a winner either way because if he had gone on a free in the summer he would probably take in £200k a week and a massive signing on fee. This belief some Spurs fans have that he signed because he had no other option is short sighted it is unbelievable.
