Dundee or Utd. 

Cannot see Utd wanting him and Dee have Kenny Miller (surely they will have learned their lesson from having over the hill strikers on their books)?

I don't know - I only heard that he was planning to keep playing. I doubt he will get a Premiership gig or a Dee gig though if he does continue to play.

Not a rumour, but see that the Dundee fullback Nathan Ralph is exercising a relegation clause to leave. About the only player in their side that impressed me
There will be plenty disappointed Dee fans if that os correct. Reading their posts on P&B over recent weeks it seems he's about the only player they'd like to keep for next season

Yes definitely agree. I would consider Scott Wright too but he is a Don. The rest were mince....

Looked OK in flashes, definitely a player there but suspect Aberdeen will want to keep. Cammy Kerr looked decent in last game but might want to stay and Dundee given he supports club

Would happily take a punt on Gael Bigirimana . Brilliant player for Well and never given a chance at Hibs, free agent now. Definitely Premiership quality.

Absolutely. He's still quite young, very tenacious as well. Reckon there would be competition for him from likes of St. Johnstone and maybe even Killie.

Gael Bigirimana is a Burundian footballer who came through Coventry City's youth system and who was very well know to a friend of mine who at the time was an advocate for some Burundian groups within Coventry.  At that time Gael really DID look like the next big thing (and so I have followed his progress to see if he could step up to the big stage).  I suppose the answer is, not quite, anyway I just spoke to my friend who is still connected to the Burundians  and asked what the score was with him? Had he heard anything ?        Long story short, was not recently; but that he understood that Gael and Saido Berahino (another local Burundian lad had both been taken under the wing of some female agent based in London, which would appear not to have worked to well.  My thoughts are that if he could get anywhere near playing the way he did back then .he would be worth a punt

Personally I would try to get the guy Motherwell signed on loan to replace him Gboly Ariyobi - by the later stages of the season he was full of confidence and creativity...        If Well could afford him why not us?  (I just remembered, they got money for Hastie)

I stuck this on P&B as well, but did you see Anton Ferdinand's comments about Hladky? Best keeper he's played with, apparently - amongst some very decent competition.

If we don't manage to keep him this summer, I really hope we make his buyer cough up some serious cash.

~So why we wasting all this money on back room staff anyway . . . .   😃 He likes being with us and is a tremendous keeper.

Even a bigger deal here will be dwarfed by what others can offer...

Thing is, if he gets a huge deal elsewhere, it'll be good for us: not just because of the transfer fee, but because it'll help convince future transfer targets to join.

Tony Fitz is touting Hladky in the paper today. Saying he'd be surprised if Celtic and the H### aren't in for him. Also talking about 6 figures for him ! Hopefully a lot shite.

I know six figures could be 999,999, but come on Fitzy! Surely he could be playing for Milan...

Why TF is he even talking about the two cheeks in the same breath as Hladky. We would get peanuts from either compared to what Qarabag or the likes would pay.  If offers come fair enough but to be almost touting him to that pair boils my p1ss !!!

I agree it is a win win for us. We need to be a club that can raise income from transfers and manage to attract new fresh talent too. being a stepping stone in player progress is fine and provided we and players/agents gain, it can make us a more attractive club to sign/play for. 

Hladky is fab - I would love him to stay for 2 or 3 seasons at least, but there is little doubt clubs will be aware of him and his agent will be touting him about too.

We get a chunk of money and that's great for the club, but we need a really good replacement too. As we have seen in recent years, that is far from easy...

Only time will tell how many signings of this quality we will manage - but here's hoping it is more than just a few...

Celtic don't part with money and the H**s don't have any.

Ye and when the move on we have to start all over again.  We'll have to get rid of the revolving door in the dressing room.
