Thing is how much do you think you can get for him even if he does get sold? 

800-900k is my guess. He's a good keeper but I think 2 million is unrealistic.

I don't think it'll happen, and honestly there are worse places for him to be than United (ahem Hearts ahem), but if Shankland left for nothing I think I'd laugh so hard I might knock myself into a coma

Not when he’s out of contact in the summer.

I don't think it'll happen either.

Didn't realise his contract was up next year - he'll just sign a pre contract in January them and piss off for free (if he doesn't refuse the pay deal and walk now)

It's not.

Ach well, he's still not going for 2m and is more likely to get picked up by some championship or European club for 500k - if his agent doesn't use his raised profile to get a new deal elsewhere now

My bad. Read elsewhere it was. Doesn’t really matter if he doesn’t agree to a pay cut anyway.

Are you assuming that United will just impose the pay cuts and let players with a re-sale value walk away? That seems a little far fetched.

That's a fair number of Dundee supporters across various social media saying that Shankland will be away on a free transfer so I am inclined to believe it's true. It's a shame we never got to reap the benefits of his £500k release clause last January.

So are you saying they will let some off without taking the deal? What's stopping them all just saying "nah I'll stay on my full pay thanks" then? 

I'd assume the PFA would have something to say about that if they aren't already about the fact your letting the loanees and new signings stay on full pay.

Those with a re-sale value, yes, of course. The PFA have got no say on it whatsoever. Dundee could have done the same with Hemmings when he refused to take a cut but presumably were just happy to get rid of him.

It appears only 3 are immune to this. None were immune to it at my club. If you’re imposing pay cuts that’s the outcome I’m afraid. 
 

Hiya Mr Ammo, hiya pal. Still hurting 😂😂😂😂

I obvs don't know how much say the PFA would have but I would imagine they'd be telling the players to tell your board to gtf if they was even the slightest hint of some getting let off with the deal.

Yeah we probably could have made an exception for Hemmings but rather than being 'happy to get rid of him' we chose to have enough class to offer the same terms to the whole team and didn't try to shaft any of our players to save players with resale value.

I am afraid your legal training cannot compete with the great minds of the Dundee fans on Pie and Bovril.

Siegrist and Shankland are gone and we're in admin on Friday. FACT.

We also didn't bring in any new players - never mind ones that take in several thousands a week - until after our cuts were put in place and the players had all been negotiated with on their pay. You would think most teams would establish the restrictions placed on them before looking to bring in more players. Not big Tony though evidently...

That's quite an impressive spin. Bravo.
