I thought free agents could sign any time.

I doubt he'll get a club, but technically ...

You have to be a free agent at the point of the transfer window closing. Otherwise the transfer window is defunct. Any club could just terminate a contract and the player could sign for someone else, with some brown envelopes passed around for compensation.

Fair enough.

It's a left back they've signed on loan.

Yeah I seen that, apparently Goodwillie can sign for a foreign club as they have different signing policies for free agents, that’s the only place he can end up really as he won’t get another club in this country

He can only sign for a foreign club in a country which currently has a window open. Which isn't many.

He could also sign Lowland League, Highland League or lower if someone's willing to take the risk and flak that goes with it. The non Leagues don't operate windows.

He will never get another club in Scotland or the UK for that matter again the damage has been done if he wants to continue to play then he will have to go to somewhere in Europe with a lesser league 

A lesser League than Scotland?

That narrows things down somewhat.

Transfer fee £50k + Vat  = £60,000

130 (weeks) x 1000 = 130,000 (£1,100 a week would be £143k, £1.2k would be £156k).

If Clyde paid a % for the remaining 15 weeks of last season  £15,000 (or £16,500/£18,000) can come off that. 

Was there a signing on fee?

Now that he's away we can only speculate how much has he gone with? (I'll bet the lass suing him would like to know too). Given the "No further comment" I guess we'll never know how much and who paid it out?  My guess is Colin Smart.

There's no longer an elephant in the room but I doubt we'll never forget it as long as the ongoing stench of it's being there remains.
