Cort Contract Conundrum
A report in todays Daily Mirror suggests that Carl Cort may soon enter into negotiations to sign a new 3 year extension on his current deal, that will keep him at Molineux until at least 2009.
Carl will be out of contract at the end of this season, and able to leave on a Bosman free transfer unless a new deal can be struck, in much the same situation that saw Kenny Miller leave the club for Celtic in the summer.
At least Carl is leaving some room for negotiation though, which Kenneth never did.
The killer quote confirming this revelation is
'I would be willing to commit if everything was right.'
Possibly the same words said to Simon Jordan when negotiations were underway to join Crystal Palace in the closed season.
Those ended with both parties claiming they called the deal off.
Jordan saying Palace no longer wished to pursue their interest in the 28 year old, and the player stating his heart lay in Wolverhampton, and, that following a quick personal review, had decided that the lure of the capital, playing alongside his brother, and being closer to his family was not sufficient for him to up roots and leave the midlands.
A curious state of affairs to say the least.
Quite what 'if everything was right' means is open to interpretation.
Wolves being in The Premiership? £25k a week? Glenn Hoddle not being manager? Being played as a target man?
2 out of four is a good starting point, at least.
