It’s only a quick one, but apparently after what was reported last week, where Fenerbache have supposedly made enquiries about loaning Jonathan Kodjia for next season, so it seems the player’s representative has now actually met the club to discuss a move.
If you can still stomach reading this absolute load of tosh story, it’s backed up by the “fact” that Kodjia’s agent is saying that Kodjia has a clause in his contract that says he can go on loan because we didn’t achieve promotion.
This is all a load of rubbish.
There’s no way the Villa would have allowed such a clause, unless they were so confident that we would achieve promotion at the first attempt, that they thought it was a totally laughable clause that would not have a chance of being invoked.
Oh, erm, hang on……
And that for me, is about the only reason there MIGHT be an inkling of truth in it.
But no, I totally fail to believe that that’s remotely possible.
You don’t sign a player for that sort of money and then allow such a crazy clause.
I believe this story is a total joke, but if it does turn out to be true, it would further claims that we’re willing to sign players at almost any cost.
And heads would need to roll.
In the meantime, I continue to treat early days speculation with the usual utter contempt, while totally accepting that some of us love it.
It’s only fair that I give the link, as much as I hate this sort of crap;
