Wells to go

Whilst I accept that Wells has not produced what we hoped for, he is still a good player and will be just the job at some other club. What really made me notice was the club's readiness to release an expensive player with a year's contract left for nothing. Are we in such financial worry that Wells might the first of several? Might seem like we are bailing out as the waters rise.

Firstly, it's newspaper talk until City say otherwise. It will be a long summer and no doubt there will be a few of these stories.

Secondly, he never starts and rarely gets on. So as an asset he's surplus to requirements , for whatever reason, Nige doesn't fancy him.
                  On £20+ k a week, that could free up wages for 2/3 players, or make us look better in the eyes of FFP. 

Circumstances dictate things change, interesting summer ahead.

I don't think he was ever brought in with a resale value in mind, so it was always likely he could leave for nothing at some time. It's just not how we saw t happening.

I don't know that Nige doesn't fancy Wells, his comments suggest he considers him a good professional, but with W(eston)-S(uper)-M(are) playing so well as a unit there is just no place for him in the starting line up. Unless circumstances change he is not going to get minutes and it's best for both parties if he moves on.

The fact he's barely got a start, and if it wasn't for an injury he'd barely get any minutes at all sort of says he isn't in Pearson's plans.
The fact he is a good character and a good professional has nothing to do with how Nige sees the set up of the team. 
I hope he goes abroad , as you know he will come back and score against us.

A panic January buy to `get us over the line` and respond to criticism from fans in recent years when we hadn`t done that. If we`d have played him how we should have I`m sure he would have been more of a success. I don`t buy all the `doesn`t want to be here` crap, it`s just his natural manner (remember Brett Pitman was just the same?).

Good luck Nahki wherever you end up.

Absolutely this.

Not what Pearson has said at all. Full of praise for Wells this season.In fact I think he said he would like to keep him.

I also think that it isn't up to Pearson.

Really missing the point.

IF Pearson really liked Wells the player, he would play.
Yes he has praised his attitude, whilst being out of the team, praised his attitude and professionalism . He still doesn't play nearly enough to warrant among the highest wages at the club.

I think you'll find it is up to Pearson, all be it within a structure or budget. Gould would have given Pearson an idea of where we stand, budget wise. Possibly they have conversations about scenarios , like Wells/Palmer/Baker off of the wage bill or moving a player on for money. It will be Nige's decision. Pearson has been in this position and knows the score.
He might want to keep him, but Wells wants football. It's clear Pearson doesn't rate him highly enough to start games, at his age Wells wants to start. In our budget, where we are financially , we can't sustain players on £20k + a week. Wells will probably go, I wouldn't be surprised to see Kalas sold and given the chance we would offload Palmer too. Wells could be the easiest , given his desire to play. Palmer ? Who knows, he has a young family and he's on very good wages, could be hard to shift. Kalas is different, one of our better players and has played a lot under NP, could go either way. But all this will be down to Pearson, with the caveat that he has those budget guidelines .
