Without doubt the Matterson thing has legs and it’s not only about money, although it would be a factor.
Reading all the articles, some buy jurnos with solid reputations and others who are just hacks, are all beating the same drum and Madge certainly looked on edge when asked about the situation.
Okay what do you do, force him to stay at 350 a year, give him a upgrade or let him walk. One things for certain very few players are ever forced to stay at a club against their wishes.
I would be looking at a trade and not a 350g trade but a market value trade. In other words we get a player for about 500g with the other club picking up the 150g difference.
Anyway if I was a betting man I would say he is short odds to be leaving and that really bugs me and questions have to be asked
