Ed do you think it maybe possible we may try and offer dembele a contract extension with a significant pay rise maybe in the summer? It would make good business sense for both parties as we could hold out longer for potential bids and still make serious money and it would benifit dembele also as he could demand more money from the start for any club that does come in for him. Would love this to happen and hold on to him for at least 3 years and still make a fortune when he inevitably leaves?
Also any word on a loan move for young Ajer? As the league is wrapped up I think the second half of the season would be a good time for the kid to make his breakthrough.
Hope you had a merry Xmas and new year mate. Keep up the fine work.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate, I had a great time and just the way I like it - nice and quiet :-D I hope you and your family enjoyed the festivities.
I wouldn't be surprised if he'll have pay rises etc written into his contract if he meets certain targets over a season but I'd be surprised if he would sign an extension this summer, maybe next summer might be a better time.
Ajer himself has said he'll be going to the English Championship on loan this month with Fulham and QPR are said to be interested.}

Would love to see Ajer out on loan and get a few proper games under his belt. For such a young lad I thought his composure was insane in the warm up games, even whilst playing at CB. Was getting slightly concerned that this new lad coming in would spell the end for young Ajer, but considering the amount of positons he can play I am still hoping that's not the case

He was talking in press the other day saying that both him and celtic see him as mainly a centre back now

Think we are turning him into a ball playing centre half.

Thanks ed, had a fine one down under. I would be pretty happy if he went to the championship for some game time. Probably better than going to a lower spl team but I wonder where Rodgers sees him playing and would he demand he be played in that position wherever he goes? CB or CM.
I'm delighted with the way the team is going just now and would love it if we tried our best to get Roberts full time but I can't see it happen but I do think we will have a very busy window ahead with plenty in and out

{Ed007's Note - I thought Ajer would have went on loan to another Scottish team so that there was minimum disruption to the kid's private life but he definitely needs to get out there playing games and learning.
I would love to see Roberts signed up but a lot of that will depend on what City want for him. I was told a few months ago that he wasn't in Guardiola's plans and would be allowed to leave City and as far as I know nothing's changed regarding that.}

A can see your point ed, if he stays in Scotland it would be less hassle for the lad but if he can get a championship club that would be some experience for him, wae all the games they play in that league it would be a lot more of an education, if he was getting game time that is. Ad like to see him in pressure games like play offs at either end to see how he handles it.
