Fans always use that excuse, "Can't offer him that because x, y and z will want the same. They don't. Footballers aren't idiots. They'll know what Heaton has achieved here, how important he is for not only the team but the club in general. Do you seriously think the likes of say Wells, Vydra, McNeill would be knocking on Seans door asking for the same? Nah doesn't happen. Not here, Man Utd or Barcalona.
Why use Wells , Vydra and McNeil as examples?
Look at what Tom has achieved here, look at the length he's been here, look at his contribution in games alone.
Those players cant bang in Sean's door, however when it comes to say Mee wanting a new deal, he can argue he deserves the same as the previous guy who's been "offered what he wanted" also any incoming players might think "I want what hes on".
We have a ceiling for a reason, no one goes above it. If you want more whilst here or ask for more before getting here, you wont be signing a deal.
In a similar tone, how would your boss react if you said I want the most wages in the company or I'm off.
