He’s back:

By all accounts a really good character around the place as well. In a side known for its quietness and lack of leaders his presence wouldn't do any harm at all.
Can appreciate it's not a straightforward decision but I think we'd gain from having him in the squad.
We don't have the cash to pay a player £75k a year when that player will be fit for an hour a game for 6 weeks, then be out injured for months. His set piece delivery, assists, goals & experience aren't much use when he is in the stands. Pay as you play, or Jamie mitigates the risk by coaching, scouting etc, which would probably be good for him if it leads him into a career after playing



Probably the most sensible post you’ve made in the last 5 years.

CUFCstuff on Twitter usually pretty reliable is saying Devitt has accepted the new contract offer.

I think you would have to consider it a low bar taking into account the utter nonsense he spouts on a daily basis

If this is right and he has signed, I wonder why the club hasn’t announced it

Aye, that'll have made all the difference. Allegedly we received an offer of £1m for him from Palace last year. I wish we'd taken it

Must have been Superblueabbott who told you that, as he's just nowhere near ready to play 1st team football. There's no way that could be true.

Maybe not. Newcastle were interested as well I believe

Still might be.

He’s 18 and plays as a target man / focal point. Probably won’t reach his “prime” for another 10 years.

From what I’ve heard Bollado is the more naturally gifted forward, Simmo looks to agree also..

It was a story I was told when he went to Lancaster. CP had offered £1m, all in. Beech said no, he thought he would be worth more in the future. I thought he even went to train with Newcastle?
He didn't shine in the first team unfortunately, still got time though
We were offered £1M, on loan at Lancaster at the time... Nah.
He's talented, no doubt, but £1M?
Jenkins / Nixon would have driven him to London, personally.

People really write any old rubbish on here. Not a chance we were offered £1 for Fishburn, and no way where they waiting for Fishburn to be moved of to pay for Devitt. What is the point of coming out with obvious nonsense?

If he has signed, they'll be using it to get him to do a video asking fans to go tomorrow.

Good news that an agreement has been reached and we made an offer he felt was fair and acceptable, we're better off with him and if he can stay reasonably fit he's a real asset.
