Just waiting to hear from Scanz whether he's moving to Barca on a slightly higher wage or not...
Rumour is he's sticking with us for another year and should be signed up today all being well.

Scans is still living locally so expect him to sign batts on the other hand might be eyeing up a no. 1 shirt somewhere it must be frustrating sitting on the wings every week just in case max goes down

Assuming Scannell is still living at the Oaklands, I wonder if that’s part of the reason for delaying the signing of the contract?

I suspect Scannell will sign because at the end of the day you can’t imagine many clubs offering him a wage in his current state and he’s clearly very well thought of in and around the club.

Battersby must fancy his chances at a conference side somewhere, May be looking for a season long loan somewhere?

It sounds daft but a ruptured Achilles isn’t as bad as it could be. He should be training again by November/December this year and probably available to play again early next year. No way he won’t sign, as you say, he won’t get a club anywhere else. We’ve given his career a lifeline, although offering him a deal shows that Hursty must REALLY rate him.

Everyone except Fox signed up. Not fussed if these two don’t. Hoping for a couple of new signings to give cover to an already strong looking squad.

Scannell will be 32 by then. It’s a long, long way back to full fitness from a ruptured achilles at any age, never mind a 31/32 year old with a history of muscular and skeletal injuries. When you return from an injury like that you put huge stress on other parts of your body - hamstrings, calves, knees etc.

Hudson-Odoi and Eberechi Eze still haven’t recovered properly from their achilles injuries and it took Spinazzola almost a year to return after his snapped during the Euros.

Of course, fingers crossed I’m wrong and Scannell is back playing and fit after Christmas.

In a recent interview Scanz said that his partner and little un where still living in Croydon so I’d imagine he’s in digs or similar. I hope he signs for us as we all know that he’ll make a difference.

Not sure about Battersby I guess if I’d been offered a deal at an EFL side with so little senior experience I’d want to start the season fight for a place and maybe look to do a loan. I’d be surprised if we don’t bring a 3rd keeper in, maybe a keeper coach?

Pretty sure I saw talk that Battersby had actually signed weeks ago. Which wouldn't be a surprise, very unlikely he'd turn down a deal.
