    Disappointing he chose a team in the same division

    Yeah, I don't really know much about the sport in general but I thought if he left he'd trade up more than this. I guess he's trading up in cash but still.

    Ipswich still a significantly bigger club than Tranmere, but still strange move.

    Three year contract, £250k signing on fee, £9k/week, rising to £13k if they go up.

    We offered a two year deal (longest we do) somewhere in the region of 3-4k. Thatís enormous for Tranmere.

    If you remove money from the equation I donít think he ever leaves. He took the club to heart. But heíd be an idiot to turn down that money, especially at his age.

    Yeah, the lad had to take it really. Sadly.

    Football is a short career, and he's closer to the end of his than the beginning. Got to earn and save as much money as he can before his number is up, especially as he's spent almost his entire career thus far playing in the bottom divisions (i.e. earning barely anything).

    What a signing he was for Tranmere though. Acquired on a free and 80+ goals in a handful of seasons. Relatively speaking, you'd be hard pushed to find a better signing than that made by any team in the country.

    I suppose something that's more of a factor in the lower divisions than higher up is location. He's a southern lad, so double wages a few hours drive from family is really a no-brainer for him.

    Shame to see him stay in league one though, especially if theres a fair danger of Tranmere crossing past Ipswich.

    Iíd be shocked if we managed that next season tbf.

    I was thinking about it last week in anticipation of him signing for them, and despite having played Ipswich in the league many times over the years I canít think of a single time we finished above them. There may have been one or two.

    I expect them to cope with League One the same way Wolves and Leicester did.
