I'm sure if Rafa was staying he'd be happy to sign a 12-month extension. A two-year request smacks of wanting security in an uncertain time.

Would keep him. Was excellent in his last cameo off the bench, and with Hayden going we'll need bodies in there

Yep, I'd keep him too. More important areas of the team to spend money on (LWB, RWB, Striker).

Hopefully no more than a squad member for another year or so. Ideally though we should be looking at someone better.

Aye, hes been decent enough for us but its time to upgrade.  All depends on what Ashley decides tho.  His wage will be off the books eventually, how long has Jack Colback got left with us?

Rather find a long term solution for that position than give him 2 years

If Rafa (if he stays) had proper backing i think he would let Diame go, seeing as he hasn't i can see Diame staying because getting a replacement in will be hell with the chumps who run the club.

Rafa will stick with the player he trusts rather than risk getting no replacement at all.

If Hayden leaves we definitely need to keep Diame. Unless we've got an unprecedented spending spree planned of course.

What happened to Joelinton then?

Just the media that hadn't mentioned it before, haven't mentioned it again even though they understood from their sources it was happening, and not at all reported based off one random Tweet.

Sign up Diame for a year and then peddle him to someone abroad for 2-3M

I think it becomes a bigger issue if he leaves because it's unlikely he'll be replaced and with Hayden probably going, we'll suddenly look quite light in there, especially with the usual injuries and so forth.

I'd only have Andy Carroll back at NUFC on a 'pay as you play' (has any player ever been on a deal like that?) deal. He's injured again.

So essentially a zero-hour contract? Mike Ashley likes this.

Would not mind given him a real contract, if free it is just a small gamble anyway. Would love for him to get his career back on track, especially with us. I am still sad, when remembering how he was forced out of the club, even though the deal ended up being great for us.

I wouldn't take Andy Carroll back at the club even if he paid us. Actually wait that's madness. I'd take Andy Caroll back at the club if he paid us 20M a year to sit on the bench when fit. Any arrangement other than this one would be a comical farce.

My 'pay as you play' suggestion wasn't serious. As far as I'm aware 'pay as you play' is a mythical contract option. Is it an option in the 'Football Manager' game or something? People seem to suggest it every time an injury prone player become available. I'm not aware of any player signing a contract which says they only get paid when fit to play.

In lower leagues you only get an appearance fee at some clubs.

Okay, but basically it doesn't really happen in the Premiership.

Can you afford to have him taking up a squad place even on a pay-as-you-play deal? If Rondon loses form or gets injured it’d be nice to have a back up striker who’s not injured for 2/3s of a season.
