    Great news! At the end of the day he just wasn’t good enough for the prem or more importantly to take the club to the next level.
    But the best thing about the depRture it frees up both a place in the squad and money for quality replacements! (Song, Jenks and a skillfull centre half spring to mind!). COYI!
