2 out of his 5 Premier League seasons he reached double figures, his best return was 16 but that was 5 years ago. Again only surmising over the contract details but a player with that return, who has only played a handful of games this season, 30 years old in a few weeks, he's not the kind of player you want to be giving a long term deal to. But why would he come here when he's a free agent in the summer unless we're making it worth his while? We know from Bernard as an example that Bosman rulings generally carry higher wages and signing on fees due to a lack of transfer fee. Something just doesn't sit right with it for me. If it's a 18 month (at a push detail) on a reasonable wage then fair enough, someone for the bench or to start the odd game if anyone needs a rest, but fuck it's really not ideal.
