On the face of it this just doesn’t add up.

Where’s the money coming from? Why would we sell to somebody with this track record?

Re: ARTICLE: Clarets confirm academy retained list

If O’Neill rejects the contract and signs for another English club, won’t we be due compensation? If we hadn’t offered him a deal, no compensation would apply.

No idea but could be part of the reason? I rated him whenever I saw him but hard to see him nailing down a regular spot with us at this time.
