There’s been talk about Sunderland enquiring about Josh Heaton.

We can let them keep £1m of the Paddy McNair money maybe?

Why would Heaton want to take a step down

The rumour is Sunderland not Spendymore.

No one suggested he was going to the highest ranked team in Co. zDurham. In fact no one mentioned them but you.

Sunderland is in County Durham.

Before anyone starts, Tyne and Wear isn't a County.

"Highest-ranked team in County Durham"

Evidently Spennymoor are resorting to inventing titles because they bottled making the play-offs.

Cringeworthy.

I did think that :lol: Clearly, by advertising themselves as the highest ranked team in County Durham, they are overjoyed at finishing above us, and fair play to them, but in their excitement they seem to have forgotten Hartlepool is in County Durham.

Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if Sunderland are after him. Of the 3 'V9' players, he's the one most pro ready at the moment in my opinion. If he is to move on, a nice fat 6 figure cheque would be nice - save most of it to help develop the infrastructure of the club, but release some of it for Tommy to find a replacement, as he'd be a hard player to replace.

So you should be the highest ranked club in Co Durham considering Uncle Brads 7 figure investment in the club. The fact it’s taken so long for you to finish above us shows that money isn’t all it takes to create a better team.

Don't forget the sell on clause in the transfer.. Always comes in handy when he moves on

I'd say the sell on is as important if not more important, than the actual fee. What if the buying club sells him for £5 million down the line? I'd be asking for 25%.

If it had not been for Dan Burn's sell on clause we would not be here now in my opinion.

Sure it was his appearance clauses that saved us. Fulham never sold him on, they eventually released him so we got nothing.

So it was. Better get a staggered appearance clause in any contract then.

Fulham didn’t release Burn, he left on a free at the end of his contract

Is that not the same thing?

Burn had an option to extend his deal. Jokanovic chose not to take up that option: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36489922

That seems very much like him being released to me.

Probably the most dispensible at the moment as well given we have Galbraith, Collins and Vaulks, as well as Ainge if needed.

We don't have a tried and tested right back if Trotman leaves and we'd be light in central midfield if Wheatley goes.

There'd certainly be more urgency to recruit replacements if the latter two left.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

From what I heard he wanted to leave anyway so maybe it was a mutual thing?
Mind you, that article doesn’t state anything about them choosing not to trigger the years option?

According to wiki they opened contract talks with him but nothing came of it and he left at the end of his contract.

This one states Jokanovic chose not to take up the option:

https://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/sport/f ... s-11301372

Either way, consensus from the reporting of his departure has been that he was released.

Well they did appear to want him to extend his contract at one point so when his contract came to an end his registration is released whether that’s his choice or the clubs.

As is Gateshead, but I suppose '4th highest ranked team in Co. Durham' doesn't have quite the same ring.

No, Spennymoor genuinely invented that title. Pretty sure they used it when Uncle Brad was touting around for investment.

EDIT - It seems they really like this title they've made up for themselves:
https://spennymoortownfc.co.uk/five-rea ... n-2018-19/

https://spennymoortownfc.co.uk/hiring-m ... -director/

That genuinely is absolutely tragic. If our board did something like that I'd be calling for their sackings.

Spennymoor will always have that "small club" mentality. They did quite a good promotional video a few months ago, but then ruined it by comparing attendance ratios and social media followers to other clubs (Darlo, York etc).

I'm sure an article on their website also compared ST prices to ours too?

"The highest ranked club in County Durham" tag is laughable.

Spot on. Neither is Gateshead, neither is Artlepool. All Unitary Authority Areas. Some people love living in the past. Like that Boro lot saying they’re still in North Yorkshire...no you’re not, shut up. You live in a Unitary Authority as well. If past definitions are valid, then we all live in the Anglo Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria and should be worried about being paid a visit by that Utred fella. Just sayin.
