Can we not just say, "come to Hibs, the club that just beat Arsenal" and he'll be in the door ;)?
I hope so but it’s gone pretty quiet eh.
I’m quite surprised St. Johnstone haven’t seen more departures already.
Hopefully the money from Mallan goes towards this, although I wasn’t sure if Barnsley were due anything of Mallan’s sell on fee.
How did we sign him? Did we pay for him?
Can't imagine at less than 200k we're due them any profit. They probably just wanted him off the books, sell on clauses help smaller clubs who know their talent is worth more long term, I'd be surprised at anything like that in the deal.
The quoted numbers for Mallan are insignificant compared to last year's prize money and if we're honest, the transfer money we're expecting this season.
Granted Josh and Ryan have both came and said they're happy here and looking to improve, but thats also code for "pay what I'm worth"
Jacks also been very reluctant to issue any hands off statements, its all "right offer" chat.
We offered 200k while still being after other targets, I think we could safely double that and give incentives to push it through. I also think being the first club to go out and make a real offer carries weight when trying to sign someone.
