Quite, £78k/yr or £130k/yr to do the same job for a finite number of footballing years. You’d be mad not to take it really.For the sake of argument let's say he is on £1500 a week for us. If someone in a higher division offers a 3 year deal at say £2500 a week he will be off.
Matt Jay recently had an interview in the Football League Paper in which he said he wished to emulate Watkins, and move up the leagues. Obviously nearly all players wish to achieve that, but I think if anyone from League 1 comes calling he would seriously consider it. Think he is a very driven individual.
Footballers don't think like that though. They assume that they will be a success at their new club.But if he doesn't fit or does not come up to expectations it could turn into 2 years of misery.during his prime years..
Absolutely , and why shouldn’t he? If he continues this rich vein of form until the end of the season I don’t think loyalty will come into it. He will look over his shoulder and think Ollie did it , why can’t I ?Think part of Matt Jay must be looking at his old chum and contemporary Ollie Watkins and thinking, when do I get my break?
As we all know there are a few clubs in League Two who might consider paying 4k per week (or perhaps even more) for the right player. In League One I suspect 6k isn't out of the question for the biggest clubs. We're unlikely to offer much above 3k even if we were desperate to keep someone, so we're pretty easily outbid. That said, I can't see him going anywhere, for now at least.For the sake of argument let's say he is on £1500 a week for us. If someone in a higher division offers a 3 year deal at say £2500 a week he will be off.
The same could be said in any job where you move for a better financial offer.But if he doesn't fit or does not come up to expectations it could turn into 2 years of misery.during his prime years..
