From Despair To Where? We've only loaned Aluko so his wages are only off the books until December. He's contracted to 2021. Whilst it helps us out with getting his wages out for FFP for this season, there's still the transfer element and he's still got another 18 months to run after that.
And with Edwards, with a mutual agreement, there will still be an element of paying up the contract, that's how fixed term contracts work. Most likely we paid the difference between what we paid him and what Shrewsbury are paying so effectively, it's like a loan only Edwards gets the security of an ongoing contract at the end of it
Thanks for clarification
Could feasibly slump be sold to them with no repurcussions though?? Realistically if they are a completely different club (even if owned by the same person) he could even be bought by them and loaned back to us.
