Player contracts and transfers

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. 

If it was terminated no one did any buying out - the contract ends, Aberdeen cut their losses and Stevie May picks the offer that is best for him.

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

Would you just rip up a good contract that has 2 years left to run? I doubt if Stevy has done that. He will have agreed a termination package with Aberdeen which will see his contract ended and him free to join Saints. 

From the record:

"The 26-year-old striker has reached an arrangement that will see him walk away from the last two years of his Pittodrie deal."

Maybe stevie has plenty of pennies in the bank from his time down south knows he’s way down the pecking order at Aberdeen and won’t get much game time under del so gave up his next 2 years wage at Aberdeen to play football with the added bonus the team he loves

This is the key in all this, hes had a few great years of money, settled more financially I hope, he loves saints, he has confidence at saints and the passionate lad just wants to get back to banging in some goals and being a fukin hero. We dont have high expectations here, but cant wait to see his face when he nets his first though.

He could have been pushing for closure, as much as anyone, to get out of Aberdeen and avoid the loan scenario.

Just fantastic all round by the club, by Wright, Broon, Stevie and Mr Vine apparently.

I hope they market the hell out of this.

Anyone else beginning to wonder if this is going to happen ?.

Robert Thomson confirmed the deal, and Matty Kennedy is quoted talking about being excited to play with him. The deals done.

Paperwork will be complicated due to his situation at Aberdeen, Robert Thomson also tweeted it likely wouldn't be announced today.

Centre back doesnt arrive in Scotland until "later in the week".

I doubt it now, but thats just guesswork.

I assume, since its not a transfer, May will have to be released by Aberdeen, with all the paperwork sent to the SFA to make him a free agent, and then when thats processed all the paperwork for him signing has to be sent through and processed.

Aberdeen named him their Europa squad yesterday aswell, so that maybe adds another complication as they'll now have to de-register him.

If all the talk is to believed, he can cancel his registration with one piece of paper in his right hand and then hand over his St Johnstone registration with his left hand. Simple if all the talk of him being released and signed a 3 year contract is to be believed. I am one doubting Thomas

Nothings ever simple with the SFA.

Appears he was holding the paperwork in the wrong hand, which completely flummoxed the SFA.;)
