I wonder why we haven't sold any of our fringe players yet. don't be smart and say no1s bid for them eh. I'd presume Jones and Barker are definitely not in sg plans. i fear another loan spell fof likes of these where were still losing money paying out part wages. Comon gers let's get this sqaud trimmed. get them sold for couple hundred k each or pay them off. I'm sure it's still cheaper paying part wages for next season.

pay them off or buy out their contract costs the same as their wage, or at least it will until they negotiate with the players to get to a mutually agreeable situation.

The whole point of buying them out there contract doesn't cost there wage lol. they get a pay off from the club. ie rangers then are free to sign for another club and earn another wage. quids in for the player. It's the whole point that clubs buy players out there contract. If it was going to cost the same then there's nope t doing it 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - that's why it happens so rarely, as very few players will agree to take a pay-off in case they can't find a new club. After all, if there was interest in their services they would be getting a transfer rather than a pay-off.}

You said don’t be smart and say no bids but that’s the real reason they aren’t away because at the moment no one wants them 🤯 why ask the question and then basically answer it and then tell the rest not to answer it with the correct answer 😂.

We have previous for it Ed. I remember we paid off a defender who signed for Marseille right after it. I think it was the next day. There's no way that hadn't already been negotiated before we paid him off. Very frustrating!
We definitely need to move some on, but If there's no buyers, what can we do?

{Ed001's Note - it does happen, nothing you can do though really.}

Was Robbie Fowler not drawing three wages at one point years ago because there was no buy out agreed and he wasnt prepared to get less than the wage agreed with club 1? I think it was Liverpool, Leeds and someone else.

If we pay them off clubs are more likely to take them on a free with bigger signing on fees.

It's too easy to just say pay up players contracts that we don't think are doing the business.
If we decided to pay up the following 4 players - Jones, Barker, Middleton and Edmundson - then it would cost the club just under £2 million. You then have to buy additional squad players.
Better to try and get a small fee and of the wage bill that way.
But as someone says, clubs need to be interested in them for that to happen.
P. S. I picked the above players at random.

Dont think that's possible deeb, I'm sure if a player signs a contract with another club thet forfeit any money due from previous clubs.
