Hope GLS doesnt insist what street in Paisley he stays in

Flat in Gordon Street, or explain lack of loyalty to your leader.

Plenty Barbers near  there.

The manager will have no impact on Mihai. I think it would still be a board decision to sign him if he is affordable. They see him as a potential sellable asset going by GS' interview with Raman last week.

Surely we wouldn't have brought him back over for a week training unless an agreement had been made to sign him for next season :huh:  would they ?   :huh:

 

Its the last week of his loan deal. So much for Mr Wardrobe teasing up good news,

You’ve just completely contradicted yourself. How is him reporting for the last week of his loan deal a board ‘clusterf**k?’ 

He gave absolutely no new information away regarding if the deal is on or off. It’s a non-story.

We already announced he was away back at the end of the season. 

He'd 100% not be here to see his loan deal out in the last week. 

If that was the case, where is Corbu?

While this is true, it would also be true for every other loan player we had. Loan players don’t often turn up for a week of training then return to their parent club, it would be pretty pointless.

Technically you are correct, but it’s an unusual situation.

Unless Dinamo are that financially f**ked they wanted us to pay Mihai’s wages until the very end!

Even if your last sentence was true it would make more sense for Saints to pay  the wage without paying for accommodation and travel.

It is true, but obviously negotiations were/are taking place to make it permanent. Seems his club aren't convinced yet, and that he wants to see what the fall out of Kearney getting his jotters is. If you think about it where is the money coming from fir a hefty transfer and compensation settlement?

Maybe Gordon Scott will finance it out of his own pocket. 😉

The fact Mihai was at training today definitely makes me think there are negotiations going on.

As you say, where is the money coming from? Dinamo must have budged on their £350K, but by how much? And if we end up paying Kearney compo, then will that kill the Popescu deal off?

I like Popescu a lot, but I really hope we’ve dropped that 350K by a large margin, no player is worth paying over the odds for in our position.

I’d like to think the Popescu deal will still be in progress despite what’s ongoing with OK.

As for the finance side is anyone’s guess, but if OK is walking away from a contract terms and conditions that he signed, hopefully there won’t be compensation for him that would ultimately eat into the transfer budget. IMO.

Lawyers obviously still fighting this out would suggest Oran has a case otherwise this would have been done and dusted but still it goes on.

If lawyers are involved there is only one winner.

Or OK's lawyers are determined to get SOMETHING. We may never know.

Perhaps it was written into Popescu’s contract that he wasn’t allowed to go back to Romania while he was on loan to us, hence why he’s still training with us

That seems highly unlikely
