I don't think there will be enough interest in the summer for the lads we have just signed i would imagine clubs will want to see what their fitmess is like after pre season etc. Be a big gamble to sign any of them just now i would think
If Glatzel stays fit heís bound to have interest. Half a season would allay the fitness concerns and teams will always take punts on forward players. I just donít think itís a dead cert all the new perms will be here come the end of August.

Possibly but i can't imagine at this level anyone would be looking at big money and with a hefty sell on fee it just wouldn't be worth it

Track record says it probably wouldnít take big money for us to be tempted though.

To be honest my gut feel is that they are banking on raising some money on the back of the u18 success to help provide funds for next season. A few of the youths are already being linked with moves.

Probably worth it's own thread but as we're starting to think about player retention in the summer, given the tremendous season that the under 18s are having in both the league and the Youth Cup, this summer could see a record number of scholars being given pro deals.

How does it work in academy circles if we offer pro contracts to players, but they are wanted by clubs higher up the food chain. Is it just a case of, the player gets to choose what contract to accept and we get nothing, or are we due compensation if that player chooses to go elsewhere?

I don't think that'll be the issue as we signed the majority on permanent deals . I think it is more likely we have signed them from their clubs with a huge sell on fee. Leeds for example really rated McGurk so probably reluctantly allowed him to go. I think the Dinan signing was actually forward planning with him likely to be Austins replacement

I was under the impression we took over their contracts as we couldnít actually sign anyone.

As their clubs were willing to let them go - I can only assume most of the contracts we have taken over only run to the summer.

Obviously I could we well off but Iíve got it in my head Glatzel, Johnson, Bycroft & McGurk are OOC in the summer.

I think itís been said by the club a few times that the new signings contracts run out in the summer but we have an option on them all. Apart from the loans of course.

Am I right in thinking we recently had Matthew Olosunde on trial?

Heís just signed for New Saints in the Welsh league. Bullet dodged if thatís his level.

Well TNS are a rich club (compared to other Welsh and many English clubs) and pay similar wages to us, he will also get to play in the UEFA Champions League with them next season.

Comes to something when they have better coaching and facilities than we do, as he apprently wasnt keen on the way we are so unprofessional off the pitch. "allegedly".
