Butt, Harper and Shola contracts

Butt, Harper and Shola contracts

With the squad down to the proverbial bare bones (copyright Harry Redknapp) it would be scandalous to see more bodies leave. However despite indications that Nicky Butt was set to sign imminently this hasn`t quite come off, suggesting that Shay and Owen aren`t the only ones playing their cards close to their chest. Kinnear said:

"They are all still negotiating with executive director (football) Dennis Wise. They have had two or three meetings this week. They have come back and suggested a certain figure and now it`s just a case of meeting each other half-way down the line to sort things out. But I know there is a discrepancy as far as wages are concerned."
