Butty deal inked?

Butty deal inked?

With January and the dreaded pre-contract agreements looming, Joe Kinnear has moved to head off news that some of our bigger names are off to pastures new. With Butty having been linked to Wigan in recent weeks, JFK revealed that an auto-renewal clause in Nicky`s contract could mean he is set to become our first tie down of the so-called Big Four (Owen, Harps, Viduka and the Ginger Warrior). Joe said:

'Nicky`s contract was done from last year, he had to play I think 19 games to guarantee him a new contract - a one-year extension. He`s played (17 now) so I said to Nicky, 'Why bother to wait for the 19? In my mind you will reach that target so just come into the office and sign it`. He said, 'I`m happy to sign, I`ll be in on Monday morning` - he was delighted.
