I assume that's 'if' because it would not make sense to delay and miss out on a target to save a tiny amount on wages waiting for Caleb ti leave.

Personally I would do everything possible to keep Caleb rather than spend money on a fee for someone else.
His agent is running things heís leaving.

Wouldn't be at all surprised to see the younger McWilliams get a 1yr deal for peanuts to fill this space, or a loanee?

And, of course, Camron McWilliams is 20 years old, so being under 21 would not count towards the 20 player limit

Why would Caleb leaving make any difference on paying money for anything. He is hardly taking up much of the playing budget is he? and there is nothing to suggest anyone will pay money to us for signing him? Or have I missed something somewhere?

I am the same as you. Surely they are hoping he stays or its of zero relevance.

I think Caleb is a great player, although from the littke we've seen still needs to learn a lot, which I'm sure he will.
Would love him to stay but clearly either he or his agent think he's too good for us. So personally I hope he leaves quickly. We need people who want to be at the club not players who take far more headlines about them staying than they deserve, and let the rest of the squad form the sort of bond that helps win leagues

Re. FC Bruges:
That would be great move for our Chuck.
Winners of the League
30,000 capacity stadium
Reputation for bringing on young talent
Best beer in the world

I donít believe this nonsense about freeing up money for a new striker! Doesnít make sense given Chuckís likely wages.
I Do agree though - if you donít wanna be somewhere then itís best for all concerned if you ainít there!

Could it be because the contract offer they've actually made to him is far better than we think?

If so, until he accepts or rejects (or the club withdraws), that money will be set aside from the budget.

Really, we signed Morton on loan who played a big part in getting us promoted. We signed BAS & Rose for fees who played a big part in getting us relegated. While I understand a preference for a contracted player for longer term strategy the priory is to sign good players above everything.

Maybe the cash signing is linked to the other Chuck...?

I think wait and see what pans out. Pretty sure it's zero to do with wages though and more about cash to buy someone. Don't pay out until the other is confirmed, surely?

I hope you are right Wandering.
Happy to keep hold of Chuck but if we lose him then I see Kabongo Tshimanga is still sloshing about somewhere in the transfer ether!! Iíd be happy to see him come in as a replacement.

Dear Jimbo,
There are two FC Bruges, that is Club Brugge and Cercle Brugge, both play in the same stadium, one attracts gates of approx 21000 the other 5400! Often wondered which Club people refer to. Hope his Agent/Chucks know. Expect Coolie can help?

Oh well, I guess the beer and chocolate are still the best no matter which FC Bruges he ends up at?

Exactly that. While his contract offer remains on the table, we canít make a similar offer to another strikerÖ

Youíd assume if we find another target they would take chucks offer off the table.

Are you saying they canít do both, keep Chucks and sign (paying a transfer fee), due to financial restraints? If so we are not even contemplating the ĎBoro method! Simply increase our offer based on the hope that some big club will come in anyway? I know which option Shoey would take Cool

If I was a player choosing between a League 2 side and a Champions League side, I don't even care if the League two side is offering twice the wages, its a very obvious choice.

Have we not just got one high earning striker off the books in Harry smith?

Are people now saying we need to get chuks off the wage bill as well to bring a new striker in  Grin

Chucks is on a scholarship , if heís on more than £200 a week Iíd be amazed.

Him staying or leaving would be of no consequence to us buying a decent striker.

Morton was of zero long term benefit to us as a club.
I think we could probably buy him for £250,000 now if we had the ambition and imo itís no gamble as he would score 20+ goals and be sold on for a million pounds plus.

We wonít do that ,another club will and will reap the long term rewards.
We will continue spending 50k or less and wondering why we canít emulate Peterborough!!

These sort of loans are only worthwhile if there is an option to buy involved.
