If we did sign him and it was a two year deal then he would be 37.
He would be 37 years and almost 11 months when any two year deal ended - just saying to clarify any issues

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Window Rumours - Links - Discussion

I don't see him replacing McNeil or Taylor
Could he play on the right side of midfield - maybe
Could we expect him to still be playing at almost 38
If he is asking for two years it may be a bit costly for the two, but then again that's just like Stephens

I predict a bright start to the 2nd half and then drift out. We have no options really to change the game from the bench due to our thin squad.
