Another one flying the nest. Thanks for everything Tim
Not been a regular starter under GC and I assume Gillingham have offered him more money, but yeh feels like a bit of a kick in the teeth.Thanks for nothing. Just because a release clause has been triggered he doesn’t have to leave. Not happy about this, feels like we’ve been let down with this one.
If he does have a property up that way and his family come from the south east then it's no great surprise. He probably realised that it was unlikely he would get another contract with us so being offered a longer term deal on more money is a bit of a no brainer for a footballer just the wrong side of 30. Even if (which I dont think will happen) they get relegated he will still be getting paid until summer 2025On reflection I just find this move very strange indeed. Maybe more money, maybe the fact his partner is from that way and he has a property not far from Gills from when he was at Southend, maybe he wants to set his roots there due to partners family etc…..either way not sure why he would want to go to a club rock bottom in league 2.
Think that's really harsh! Massive player for us last season and at his age if he gets offered a good deal he's going to take it.Thanks for nothing. Just because a release clause has been triggered he doesn’t have to leave. Not happy about this, feels like we’ve been let down with this one.
