That’s fine by me. Slater for me was a bit of a nothing player. Decent on the ball, can play simple passes, but doesn’t really affect the games in attack or defensively.

Wasn’t anywhere near the level of Sowerby for us.

Such an odd one this, gets a lot of stick from Aberdeen fans and plenty of sarcastic jokes.. yet can't stop scoring.

We must have a decent sell on in him surely? Should've asked at the forum tonight

Lummy stated that it was substantial amount, although that obviously would depend on the transfer fee.

Imagine if he went for a packet to wipe out most of the debt and Holdsworth choking on his microphone at the forum avoiding talking about anything Keith Curle :)

Rumour is that not everything working out for Jamie Devitt at Blackpool, seemingly Devitt does not fit in with Simon Graysons preferred style of play. ..His agent is touting around for someone to take him on loan.
The grass it seems is not always greener on the other side.

I believe we`ve already turned him down.

I did have a notion that could happen. Devitt isn't one of those players who fits neatly into a position.
He became the main man for us eventually, but this wasn't the case in his first season.
He was a very good League 2 player, but is less likely to stand out in L1 imo.

This is a strange scenario.

He said he wanted to stay, Holdsworth said that he said from the beginning that he wanted to leave.

We get the chance to get him back on loan and refuse.

There has to some bull shit somewhere along those claims.

It was said at the forum once they were told he wanted to move on by his agent, the club had to look at other players. They tried again with another offer. It was refused by his agent/him.

The grass isnt always greener as he is finding out. Maybe his agent will offer him back for loan?

A mate who supports Blackpool has said much the same. Previous manager signed Devitt and Grayson doesn't rate him.

Could end up being a terrible move for him as they seem to be a club on the up but he may well be left behind or frozen out.

We can only squeeze one more loanee into a match day squad. As much as I love Devitt, I'd rather that slot went to a pacey striker instead.

Fits with what others are saying about Devitt.

Personally I think we need another forward before Devitt. With Scougall or Bridge able to play more prominently if needed.

Interesting that Iredale was put on as a right winger when he signed as a left back!! Indication of where we are short or lacking fitness. We also have Sagaf, Hope and eventually Etuhu to come into the squad.

Yea think there's a 'LOT' of truth in it, seemingly we've slammed the door shut on a return. And whether you like him or not I believe it wasn't Holdsworth who closed that door.

Odd really isn't it, he says one thing on the contract negotiations and the club say another.

Then apparently we get the chance to get him back loan and refuse.

He is of proven quality, I would have bitten Blackpools hand off - plus being a Blackpool player he would be wanting to get games to show their manager what he can do to try to get into the team.

He snubbed the club and thought he was bigger and better than us despite his career having peaked at clubs such as Accrington and Morecambe before he came here.

He did alright for us last season and obviously has some quality but he had the opportunity to stay, probably be club captain, earn the highest wage and have the team built around him, he turned that down and we've built a squad in a different way - hard luck I'm afraid. Looking forward to seeing him play for Macclesfield in a year when he's released by Blackpool a year early and hasn't played a game for 16 months

Money talks unfortunately and it's not as if these lads earn a fortune.
I'm sure he regrets his move at the moment but this is the nature of the game.

Ive no animosity towards him but if Pressley doesnt think hed have the right squad dynamic with the new players hes brought in then i can certainly see why he doesnt want him back. Especially if hes sure hes getting a loanee striker in this week.

Absolutely, time will,tell of course but at the moment I don't blame Pressley one bit for refusing, he wants players that want to come here, want to play, want to be part of what hes trying to achieve ....and as much as I liked 'Dev' I cant help thinking hes shot himself in the foot, but as the above poster says that's the nature of the game, and you have to be absolutely sure your next move is the best one for you, clearly for 'Dev' this hasn't been the case.

It's a job for Jamie Devitt.

We are skint. Elvis isn't going to blow what little budget he's got on an attacking midfielder when we have 2 or 3. Better to get a decent striker, left back or winger in, positions we need to improve

Unfortunately he went to Blackpool before Grayson came in.....not sure why or how he wouldn't fit into either team....he's pacey...great set piece foot on him ...clever with the ball........just with us the spaces have been filled while hes been gone...most managers want their own players, dont know what he, Grayson has brought in, but for JD to be sidelined to me is madness, plus theyll get injuries as time goes on.
KC might be interested (and in Hope )

I think the club were being disingenuous when they implied they had offered Devitt a two year option. In John Coleman's article in the EN&S they gave the wording mentioned as to the effect that either side had the option to turn down the second year. So of course there was no guarantee for Devitt that a second year was by any means certain.

Anyway, that's water under the bridge now.

Devitt's a cheeky cock begging to return here.

If he'd been committed to the club and really wanted to stay - he could've.

Instead, the way he bad mouthed the club, his snidey tweets and the rumours he started through his little mate Panface - all reflected badly upon him as a character.

He's only been at Blackpool five minutes and he's desperate to leave? That's an appalling attitude to be honest, he should be aiming to prove his ability and fight for his place rather than throw his toys out of the pram and start sulking already.
