Player contracts and transfers

If May or his Agent are mucking Saints about then our Chairman has every right to pull out of the deal. I hope the deal still goes through but on terms that are good for both the club and the player. May has not exactly been banging in the goals since he left and he is not worth breaking the bank for. 

He's not the Messiah, he's just a very naughty boy.

So, i know nothing about May negotiations... maybe the first on here, impressed by so many folks with facts. But is it fact he has left Aberdeen and is a free agent?

Seems odd that if driven by money why he wouldn't simply come to us on loan till Christmas with option to extend.

I'd love to say the deal broke down as the SFA couldn't allocate him shirt number 17.  That was the deal clincher  it's like getting mats with a new car.  No mats, no deal.

The reports were saying he'd agreed a package to be released, but theres never been official confirmation he's been released.

Have to guess but maybe the moment he signed for us they'd file the release papers.

This saga with May is really dragging now..... longer than 90 mins in Montrose.....

Its been reported, widely, since about 11 this morning that the deal is dead.

Robert Thomson reported at 12 saying its over and categorically states May won't be signing for St Johnstone this window.

The saga is now solely being dragged on by fans.

Evening Tele suggesting saints swooping for Jason Cummings??? Surely would indicate May deal off as I don't think we could afford both.....or just a smoke screen???

Jason Cummings story has been confirmed as shite.

Imagine he gets no transfer and returns to play for Aberdeen, he's treading on thin ice.  The sheep dont like him as it is due to lack of goals and would be prepared to do a bucket collection to buy him out his contract!  (Thats from a friend who is a sheep)

This is the gamble we will be taking if we through all the cash to May.  Geezus!

Scroll down to see a worse shot from his team mate Cosgrove.

Tine to through the cash elsewhere, I'm more interested in Cumdog.

Cummings earns over £15k a week at Forest, we've absolutely no chance, even on loan.

Aye, probably true. But......  that rules out any return to Scotland for him. But.. Maybe he'd like to go home, what is he 23?  Loads of time to create future earnings, kick start in Perth..

I think there's more chance that May and Vine have backed down and will be announced tomorrow.

Oh well, we didn't sign a player who had a few good seasons, then was gash for 4. We'd better get moving fast, as the clubs that were/ are interested in May have money to spend (supposedly), and could outbid us on what's left. A true test of how the club is run & ambition... interesting times...

This is it. If May wanted to come back he'd be back, hes been given an incredibly good offer and hes refusing to sign it because he wants more.

Fully behind Steve Brown on this one.

Fully behind Steve brown on this one!!

Away boil yer heed!

What were the terms offered by Saints exactly? How much more did Stevie May want?

You don’t have a clue about the details so how can you bleat on about taking sides.

We need a striker, Stevie May is available, Stevie May wanted to come.

If there were a plethora of strikers out there that had the same talent/potential/previous credentials as May Id say, yeah, stick to our guns - alas there isn’t!!

We are about to kick off a premier league season with Chris Kane as our primary striker and Callum Hendry as back up. Throw into that David McMillan, a guy who doesn’t want to be here and a guy that the manager and fans don’t want here.

Its fine it’s fine we’ll play Kennedy or O’Halloran up front. Aye natural finishers right enough.

Indeed I would be absolutely amazed if this was the fault of Steve Brown.  His PR may be dreadful but he had said the right things when it became public knowledge that we were after May.

It is hard to figure out if the silence from the club is due to us still being interested or if it is just our standard low levels of engagement. 

Great that Gary is back from his holidays and we can see pics of new sponsor boards on twitter.  Looking forward to his in depth tweets about the dugouts.

I've been told by multiple people the Kojak poster on here will be correct.

In that case, we've offered May the biggest contract in the clubs history to come back, hes agreed to it, him and his agent have then come back in at the final second and demanded EVEN MORE money from the club.

Steve Browns refused to up his offer, and May is now refusing to sign the contract.

The striking situation is awful just now yes, but I'm not even convinced May deserves that initial offer never mind demanding even more, we can't just chuck three players wages at him because we're in a blind panic and he was good for us five years ago. 

I'm not sure what Browns done wrong?

Apparently our offer, which is the biggest offered in our history, is still on the table.

Its Mays decision if he joins us or not.

And who says the extra money demanded was for Stevie and not for Vine himself?

I’m not buying it.

”biggest contract in the clubs history” ... absolute drivel.

What else are the club going to say? Are they going to admit that Championship Dundee, St.Mirren, Kilmarnock or Ross County offered better deals for May when we are in such a mess with strikers.

Is Steve Brown going to tell his pals anything other than he broke the bank and bust a gut to bring May in?
