  • Contracts situation

    The end of this current season will mean the end of contracts for a number of our players. The likes of Willock, Bonne, Masterson, Shodipo, Amos, Thomas, Archer and the most recent signing, Balogun. Some, like Willock, have an option to extend by another year. However, do we need to go to the line considering he is being quoted as a 25 million player? What if clubs will wait to get his fee down or he refuse to extend his contract? Do we want to deal with another Manning or BOS situation? It is so clear that the club is pushing hard to sell Willock and get the money. But if no bids are made in January, do we risk to lose him for a much less transfer fee, if not for nothing? The same apply with Amos, and maybe Masterson and Bonne. The club should offer longer contracts to players that are important to the team, the same as was done with Luke Freeman. He agreed to signed an extension to his contract and was sold soon after. And that's how it should be done.

    We have the contractual option to extend Willock's contract and don't need him to sign. It's a clause the club activates.

      I'd only want to keep Willock from players listed.

      Shodipo, Archer, Thomas, Masterson, Bonne, Ballogun and Amos, I'd release at end of contract.

        So true. However, that will mean he's in his last year. It will without any doubt effect our power to negotiate the best deal possible.

          If the club want to activate thr clause hes effectively contracted to the summer of 2024. But as far as im aware there havent been any bids for him let one two clubs battling it out for his signature. We'll surely extend hus contract and as of now he will leave on a free transfer in Jun 24.

            If Amos can prove his fitness would give him another contract. Of the others, excluding Willock, they need to show this season they can do it at this level otherwise I would release them.

                Agreed, but he's hardly one for future. 34 years old. I'd expect us to release him next summer, Balogun is probably expecting it too.

                  Only brought in because Dickie cant move his legs quick enough and Masterson hasnt impressed MB. More work needed at CB next summer, especially if we've got aspirations to finish in the Champions League spots next season!!

                    That's the spirit!

                      If Willock won't sign an extension by this January we have to sell him in the January window. He cannot be allowed to enter the final year of his contract, it would decimate any transfer fee we might get for him next summer or winter.

                        If we're pushing for promotion and we're in the top 6 come January then I don't agree at all. promotion is worth 100m so willocks transfer fee then becomes chicken feed. Risk to reward with common sense has to take place and we should do all we can to keep him. The offer will always be too low anyway
                        I played sunday league football today.

                        Clearly I was the best player on the pitch.

                        I scored 5 and made 7 last ditch tackles.

                        We lost 5-0 but the rest of my team were sh it!

                          That's my point. If he do not sign an extension in January 2023, rest assured that we will not get what everyone thinks he's worth ... if anything at all. Hoping that same sentiments are felt by Les @ co. as well.
