    Pretty much the opposite of what I said.

    I seem to remember him being discussed on here before the transfer. There were a couple of the typical youtube videos knocking about.

    Same problem as before
    No one can offer him anywhere want what he is getting here
    Yet people think the club should pay for him to leave...

    So on the assumption that he doesnt play much between now and the summer, his value will presumably be even lower then...

    If it’s a loan surely them paying anything towards the wages is a bonus.

    Why shouldn't we pay for him to leave? It would probably work out better for the club financially. The alternative is paying him £60k a week to turn up at training for another 18 months and then for him to walk away for nothing then.

    We were stupid not to pay for him to leave back in the Summer. Giving him even as much as £6 million to go back then would actually have left THFC £13 million better off than we will be now stuck with him.

    Because he is our player, our asset and potentially one that Jose may use (however unlikely)
    Only in the bizarre world of football fandom does the idea of paying for someone to play for and therefore deliver for someone else work

    Wrong. Financially, we would be better off with someone else paying some of his wages. He ain't gonna play for us.

    When does the Celtic transfer window close?

    Today
    And no because we may need him
    If a club wants him and there getting him at a discount rate they should pay the rate
    We’re not a charity

    A club were willing to pay a transfer fee of £13 million for him last summer. However that club have a far lower wage ceiling than us and could not afford pay him anywhere near the wages we pay him. Even us paying up his entire contract at £6 million would've left us £7 million up from the transfer fee and actually £13 million overall when you consider that we'll pay him that £6 million quid in wages anyway between last summer and next summer when he walks on a free. That deal would've ensured that the player was quids in and also had a bit more security in a longer contract at the new club. Not doing that deal will cost us money. It's clear the player isn't and wasn't in the manager's plans.

    It probably wouldn't even have taken the whole £6 million for him to agree to the move either. So it may be even more than £13 million that we have effectively wasted for no reason.

    I agree. At best he'll get the odd apperaance for us, but wouldnt add much more than Skipp could. We'd be better of getting rid now, even if we had to subsidise his wages

    That wasn’t the case quoted at the time
    The stumbling block at the time was that he wanted a UK passport... odd but well reported
    That was the deal he should have took and now he rots here

    it’s hardly appetising to him a club saying we want you but actually don’t want to pay you..
