    We could still get some money for him. Perhaps it also has an impact on the accounting books if we just let him go for free rather than recoup something. He should have been sold before he even got injured but that's another matter.

    At his age there will be buyers. Makes sense to renew.

    It might well be flawed thinking, but it's not short sighted. Short sighted is cutting your losses. Looking at the bigger picture is recouping value for him.

    I like him, and I think he's a good option in the squad when fit.

    Watching us play our current style with Smalling or Jones at CB might give me palpitations.

    Perhaps my concerns stem from our ability to sell quickly and get decent value back. We've had Darmian on the books for some time with buyers supposedly there. But he is still here, contract renewed, making up the numbers in the squad.

    A waste of a squad place. I would cut ties as soon as possible.

    You’d hope so. But we can’t sell Rojo or Darmian at the moment

    Rojo has started 5 games in the 2 years since we stupidly gave him a new contract.

    Would be madness to renew Bailly, he's never going to make it here.

    We need to stop holding on the deadwood.
