    Skysports do this article about agents and what they get up to. This bit may be relevant to us:

    "Apart from the basic salary, appearance fee and the length of contract there are lots of different bonus schedules that the player can work towards. As an agent it's your job to include bonuses specific to the player. For example it's not unusual if you're working with a young player to ask for a lump sum once they are selected to play for the Under 21 national side. Alternatively, a player like Yohan Cabaye - who is ripping up trees for Newcastle this season despite costing just £5million, may have asked (and this is purely hypothetical by the way) for a percentage of the fee the Toon would receive if one of the big boys bids for his services down the line.

    I'm currently in the initial stages of a potential transfer of a player from one Premier League club to another. It's early days but it's not too dissimilar to the example given above. The player is under contract but 'according' to the press has a number of suitors interested in his services.

    His current club is telling the media that they are hopeful that he will sign a new contract, which they genuinely want to happen, and by saying this publically it covers their back in case the player tries to claim loyalty bonuses he thinks are due.

    Meanwhile, the player hasn't once said he wants to leave, or got a 'source close to him' to suggest he isn't happy, despite the reports which are linking him to two or three other clubs.

    A decision should happen this week as to whether the player decides to take the new contract on offer. While he waits to make this decision I have clubs primed and ready to jump into talks if he rejects their extension."


    Could this agent be talking about one of our players? I think it may be Simpson.

    Me to. Can't remember Simpson having many suitors being mentioned and I don't think he'd need a clause in to get a percentage of a tranfer fee as any future ones for him are likely to be smaller.

    Hoillet on the other hand...

    Sounds exactly like Colo except for the 'according to the press has a number of suitors' part. Correct me if I'm wrong, but only Liverpool have been linked in the press

    Could be anyone really but I won't be too surprised if it was Simpson, he's not one of our better players so wouldn't be too bothered if we get a replacement in. I can't think who'd want him though, assuming he does go elsewhere...

  14. Hoillet has been linked to Spurs, us and I think Liverpool (Obviously).

    Lets hope!

    my 1st thought was hoilett but i think his agent is his dad who's unlikely to have many clients (probs just the one) and i think might live in canada....

    Could be Simmo. I reckon if Colo left he'd go to either Spain or Argentina and finish his career there.
