Sounds like a nice gueye..

Good signing.... Still need to keep NP next season, he will start playing these youngsters, save sending them out on loan.

Edit....
I see there's now some noise about the move, seemingly from the player's NEW agent.!?
Surprise surprise... New agent arrives and wants to cancel a contract previously signed by the player under a previous agent. What are these guys on.? Player signs a pre contract agreement with us so surely that's it.? He has committed himself as allowed by the powers that be.... Sounds like new agent just wants a piece of the action and wants the action to be with a bigger club.......

Agent- "OK mate let's look at what I can do for your career, what do you mean you've already signed a contract to join Watford.?!! What it's a five year deal... Oh no not having that... You do know that WFC eat babies and will prob just send you to L***n on loan..you'll hate it I need to save you ASAP. OK let's claim they handcuffed you and water boarded you and you were drunk when you signed... Yes that will do it...."
These agents make me sick...

If FIFA wanted to clean up the game, the single easiest thing they could do is legislate that player contracts should work like they do in the USA. Agent's are paid a percentage of the player's wages. Period. No fees from the club, nothing from a signing or transfer bonus/fee. Nothing. You might be in "I want to renegotiate" hell a little more often, but a lot of these shady deals go away. It would take a few years to phase it in, but it would be a massive improvement.

We're saying that ours was dated and sent in early January, but the other two were done in 2019 so are legally invalid and against rules, so should be sorted quickly, that's as long as the player himself isn't doing his utmost to get out of it..?
Messy....

Player's head has been turned by his agent.

Do we need someone just motivated by money even before they join?!

We seem to run into a few problems lately with players we think we signed.? Either we are winging it a bit too much or we have terrible legal advisors here and there...... Or is it there are just too many dodgy agents about....?
It seems that CAS came out against us with that other player provisionally although maybe just to get that club off the ban, but crikey we do seem to get in some messes...

Maybe it's the agent talking but this guy clearly doesn't want to come to us.

Even less so if we went down.

Post subject:  Re: New signing

His agent is desperate to break our deal and clearly its because he lost out on agent fees for this contract. I can't see any legality that will cancel our contract, he signed it - he's a WFC player come July.
I reckon his only legal option will be now to buy out our contract and start again, and from the sounds of him get rid ASAP for an easy little profit....?
