Something happening...Confirmed new deal for CoD

Recommended Posts

Can only mean one thing. No new players incoming so a deal extension for an existing player. I’m thinking it’s the one that was stalling

Three year deal with option of another year. That’s good that’s sorted.

Yep. Hopefully we can all draw a line under that and COD can now crack on.

Not bothered, important thing is that he has now committed for the next 3 years at least.

Hopefully, we'll see the best of him in that time.

I'm pleased. Harmony restored. A fee on the cards. And who knows, he might progress with us...

Great stuff now we can get a decent fee for him in January.

:whistle2:

Joking aside this is good news . The lad can get his head down and kick on .

 

Don’t  be silly we’ve obviously extended his contract to sell to Chelsea when they’re transfer ban is up!

Glad that’s sorted now 

Get behind the lad and support him 100%

Indeed.  Club, importantly, protected from losing him on a free / reduced fee....which would not be an ideal endorsement of the ‘project’ - buy cheap and young, sell for a profit.

Now it’s down to Callum....and good luck to him.  I still think he has a bit to do, but I also think if he can develop those couple of weaknesses he will be a key player for us.

I’m sure all fans will now support him.

I think there’s probably been, on balance, good management here by LJ and a good split between carrot and stick. The latter was where he made clear the situation and that the club weren’t bending. The former was the more difficult - having given the kicking, he then still kept COD involved and onside, didn’t cut off his nose to spite his face.

No doubt the fact the clubs ambitions have moved forward since the original contract offer have helped shape COD/Daddy CODs new stance, but to me (as long as we haven’t offered a new huge contract different from the first), great credit to LJ here for management of the situation

COD was free to sign or not sign a new deal. Everyone should try and better themselves. He took his time to come to a decision and I'm delighted he is committing to us.

Finally realised he wasn't as good as he thought he was and nobody else wanted him. 

Still, glad it's over.

I don’t think it is over.

I think, for a player with his record of injuries, he realised the gamble of going out of contract was too much; see criticism of Owen v AV. Maybe he saw that. 

With the sort of revenue coming into the club now we have to weigh up do we have his side posturing every window, or do we say not worth the fee we’d get for him right now if we were to sell - given we have him locked in for four years  

When you consider what we paid, and pay, in wages... if I wasn’t wholly convinced he was not going to be trying to make further moves imminently, I would probably not have offered him a deal, left him aside, not let him earn appearance fees etc and sent a strong message to our young players. Especially as we have already shown we will entertain fair offers which give a chance to progress even if it is destabilising (Webster the best example). 

In some ways I think this was the one to make an example of.

Caveat ALL that with I don’t know squat about the lad, how he is around the squad, what relationships he has and if we were hard-nosed if that would rub players up the wrong way. Just my two pennies from the outside  and signing a contract securing his wage for at least 3 years is not really that big a commitment when he was heading for free agent. He has some bridges to build.

From where I’m sitting this looks to be sensible for BCFC. It can go one of two ways: (1) Callum performs and earns his place (2) He fails to perform.

I really hope it’s the former. If so, see it as a win:win for the Club and player, if unfortunately, it’s the latter, he will move on and at least we will get a more realistic fee than if he’d not signed a new contract.

Hmmm.  Hopefully we'll get a big offer for him at the end of the season.  Not keen on how he's conducted himself and I think he's been stagnant as a player for a long while. 

If he proves me wrong I will happily admit it!

Great news. 

Now worth an awful lot more when he gets the move he’s actually after in January or the summer!!!! 🤗

Can't say I understand that - if he wanted a move, going for free would give him a much better chance of getting a good move with more money, rather than a club paying millions for him.

If he really wants a move, the last thing he would do is sign a three year contract with a year option.

Well, remaining term of contract paid up should the club accept a sale. 

Nice fee for us. 

As LJ said before the window, he would prefer he signed before it closed to show commitment rather than sign after as it would look like hes signed due to no other deal. 

Im with LJ!!

It may look like that but I still maintain he'd be better off not signing if he wanted to leave.

Still, he's signed so hopefully we'll see the best of him.

Onwards and upwards, a player that needed some incentive, constantly second fiddle to another now away in loan, but showing his frailties, could be like a new addition, hopefully it’s premiership here we come
