Does anyone out there know the current situation with Vernam, Wright & Clarke?

I think we have an option on Vernam for another year which we've taken. Presumably they are trying to tie him down for longer?

So many of Radio Humberside's ITK posts/Tweets about our transfers turn out to be balderdash so hopefully this is another one they've got wrong with Clarke. It's shite that the most senior sports reporter for them is constantly throwing out "I'm hearing..." Tweets. It's his job to report on what's happened, not what he's heard.

Apparently, talks are ongoing on that...which I don't get. If we have the option then what are they discussing?

Could be offers from other clubs so could be trying to balance out a deal to match.
In Clarkes case he could be waiting to see if something closer to home comes up or a longer deal, hes no spring Chicken so may want to try and get a wage for his last couple of years

Or we offered him 75% of what he was given in January?

I would imagine the club want to tie him down for longer.

Its not only a reporters job to report news nowadays its also their job to create media interest in themselves and other subjects, why do you think you get endless speculation about reality stars/footballers  thats a load of b0ll0ks but they rarely sue anyone. as its exposure for the celebs and it sells papers/magazines and gets hits on websites/twatter etc. thus increasing advertising revenue etc, Its just a big merry-go-round of trying to fill space.

Clarke was always going to be a touch-and-go one I think.

Good player, good pedigree and anyone with half a brain could see from his appearances here that he's still got it.  Looked absolute class for us.

Current situation means we're probably not offering as much as we could have done previously, he'll no doubt be travelling in so that's extra expense.  The whole lockdown thing has probably put a lot into perspective for some players, especially those with young families.  It may be that he doesn't want to spend 3 hours a day driving when that's time he could spend at home.

Really hope we can come to a deal with him as he was probably my favourite player to watch under Holloway so far.
