Donít get the negativityÖ he is a very good player.. he can play right across the back line and will be like a new signing.. great character too which has helped him pull throughÖ only wish him well.. would be great at Left wing back Ö.

pretty sure the negativity is due to him playing about 9 minutes of football in the last 4 years.

He's earned c£30k a week over that period and i think his tribunal fee was almost £1m too. Clearly injuries happen but Palace needed to cut their losses last summer.

I think I said up the thread (or elsewhere?) the loyalty and patience the club have shown to him is rare and sends a very good message to young players we are seeking to attract.

NB not that we are a soft touch!

He's currently on £4.9k per week, which I assume kicked in when he was given a year's extension last summer.

If he manages to stay fit for the rest of the season (I'm not holding my breath) it will be interesting to see what happens in the summer. After all, he's still only 23.

He was signed on a 3 year contract with base salary of £29k per week. `That is £4,500,000 in basic wages alone.

Regarding the negativity, as already mentioned he has played about 9 minutes of first team football for us in over three and a half years! He has also missed a huge chunk of his development time at potentially the most important stage of his career. Forgive me if I donít get carried away about his return to training.

He will be injured again before Easter.

Seems you and Doombear are both right, his current wage is £4,900pw last season it was £29,000pw & he started on £34,000pw that's an awful lot of wage for approx half a match(in total) . . . [Link]

Yeah, there are a number of online sources, some more accurate than others but in general terms they all point towards those figures.

It was a risk and a gamble, sadly one that hasnít and most likely wonít pay off. That is one aspect of our game I suppose.

I do find it surprising that he was signed on quite a significant weekly wage when everyone knew he had a serious knee injury and needed to prove his fitness, post surgery. Especially taking into account the terms he was on at WBA.

I just admire his determination, mindset, dedication and sheer willpower to keep going and get back to fitness and resume his playing career.
Also great credit must be given to the clubs medical team to see him through all this treatment.
As for the cost who's to say that the bulk of it hasn't been covered by insurance and not paid by the club?

When you buy someone who's already injured you're not going to get insurance. I also believe that when he came to us it was a relatively long term injury. He wouldn't have passed a medical so again, no insurance.

I donít think anyone knows the insurance situation apart from the club...I believe he was signed and then the fee was agreed by arbitration... anyway that aside itíll be good to see him back...

Well actually some of it is pretty obvious. The existing injury he had when he signed will definitely not be covered and the premiums charged would no doubt be higher as an injured player is perceived as a higher risk.
This is standard industry practice.

Other injuries should be covered as they are unrelated to the initial knee issue he had, however, he has come back so many times and incurred other injuries, including a number of muscular ones, that any insurance payouts will be limited.

Obviously cant speak for the boy, but if it was me I'd have given up the hope of ever playing properly again.

Keep your head own do the rehab, save your money. If/when Palace let him go this season he's very unlikely to get a wage playing footie again.

Wickham is a similarly sad case, has been released by 4 clubs since we let him go. And now out of work.
