I have heard it is more the case Vine is the south of England scout we have, rather than being SM agent, I would not say I am  ITK on this.

Random I am sure can find out if Vine is a registered agent !   

Vines wiki page makes interesting reading & doesn't look like he would be too cooperative with Saints.

Says Lomax said he would get another contract but Tommy said budgetary restrictions prevented him giving him it. Tommy seems to have been singing the some song for a while now.

Vine told his agent he would only come back to Scotland for a proper team & signed for Hibs.

He is a footballer who has turned into an agent, money talks. It is just another job.

Record says May has filled up his 2 year deal with Aberdeen & signed a 3 year contract with Saints.

Looks like all the speculation has ended.

From that training ground to the McD astro and lesser McDiarmid...  no brainer.   

May return (if it goes ahead), not up or down by it, can see why but also wonder why.

SunSport understands the 26-year-old is poised to head back to Perth after agreeing his departure From Aberdeen and he will be joined at McDiarmid Park by Estonian international defender Madis Vihmann. Can not wait until it is announced and official. We desperately need a striker and centre back.

I wonder how much this has cost us? 

£250k? 

They paid £400k for him a year ago, so can’t imagine it would be much less. 

Great bit of business this IMO. Bit my tongue before as I was worried he’d go elsewhere, but can’t wait to see him back in blue. 

I’m sure he’ll thrive being our main striker.

He's a good fit at Saints, and will reignite his career.  We've been crying out for a 20 goal a season striker since he left, and I genuinely think he will deliver again.  

Confidence throughout the team will be bolstered too.  It can't be easy for any player with the cloud of being unable to put the ball in the net hanging over them.  When our best chance of a goal is a penalty from a left back, then the pressure on everyone not to make a mistake stifles any kind of freedom to play positive football.

 

Onwards!!

No fee as I understand he has ripped up his contract meaning he has forfieted the remaining 2 years salary he would be due under that contract. Whether Saints have agreed with him compensation to cover part of that I guess we will never know.

It will just be great as you say having him back in a Saints shirt

You can guarantee that we have opened the purse strings. 

No way are Aberdeen just going to let a 400k player walk out of the door. I suspect that agreeing this part of the deal is what’s taken the time. 

Makes sense from our perspective though. If we can even get him back to 80% of the player he was when he left, then 3 years of that will be fine!

Too much pressure for him to deliver 20 goals a season. I will be happy with 12 SPFL goals and I think that will be his level

All the press reports must be wrong then.

By cancelling his deal Aberdeen will be saving any future wages due to him.

It wouldn’t be like the press to get stuff wrong, would it? No one knows the ins and outs of any transfer, so it’s all speculation.

 

Someone has buying him out of that contract is the only outcome that makes any sense. 

 

Had Aberdeen loaned him out, they’d have potentially got a player back at Christmas bang in form and worth money to them or goals to the team, while having a portion of his wage paid. 

 

So its been one of the Stevies. Why would Stevie May buy himself out of a very good contract? He had a good wage guaranteed and could have came to us or Dundee on loan. 

 

Maybe Broon reckons that there’s more value in paying to get him back permanently for 3 years if he can rediscover his old form. 

 

Or maybe Auld Milne was feeling really charitable and wanted to help us out. That’s the alternative.
