A move to FC Arizona awaits!Indeed.
And, from his point of view at his age, what would be a better career move. Moving to a club where he is already earning a favourable reputation (even in Arizona!!! ), albeit on somewhat reduced remuneration and even if as a later "springboard" than spending his next three years at his parent club putting the kit out and rubbing down the bench splinters for No 1 or 2.
Football is (and always has been) a mercenary business but I would like to hope that, as long as he settles here (and, so far, the signs are good) and, of course, if the Owls want to get him off the payroll, an adequate - but not crippling - wage offer plus a fair release clause might serve both parties.
It could (rose-tinted fingers firmly crossed) be a win-win-win situation. Just pray that (after that first, inevitable, "fumble") he doesn't go onto Exeweb for "advice" from the resident glovesmanship coach. That WOULD be the end of a beautiful love affair.
