I'm told Jamie Devitt is close to a return, he wants to return so should be sorted soon.

Nathan Thomas would be a great signing, but wages could be a stumbling block.

I’ve heard the same, not sure if it’s the same ‘source’ as you.

Anyway I don’t believe it, because i heard from the same source last summer that Sowerby was returning.

I know we all love a rumour at this time of year...

Already posted on the released players thread. A couple of us on here have heard from sources within the club that it is just about a done deal.

That's because his agent is banding him around even though he wants to return to Carlisle!

I see there is the usual array of people embarrassing themselves on Twitter, all but on their knees begging an ex-player to return.

Happens every time one is linked.

Would be surprised if he went to Swindon or Northampton. Both promoted, he could end up in the same position again, not getting game time or out on loan.

Now looking likely he won't be returning after talks have broken down due to a derisory contract offer from the club.

Why would he consider coming back, unless it was too good a deal to refuse. His agent has probably been chasing any club with gaps in their squad so that he can top up his own cash fund.

If Devitt wants a move away he's going to have to take a pay cut, any moves outside the Premiership are going to be on deals a lot less than pre Covid ones.

Unless he gets a longer deal, which will guarantee him a wage for at least a year longer than he's currently on he'll end up on loan again. There be more than us making derisory offers for the next few years.

On the plus side
He posted a photo on Instagram of him in his Carlisle shirt pointing to his name on the back Devitt10 and posted the praying emoji with it

On the minus side
Dont think him and DH see eye to eye over how he left and what was put out by DH.

Does this work?? - All he originally wanted, before leaving, was a 2 year contract on the same wage. Presumably a 1 year deal now, on his old wage. Plus the year he just had elsewhere (on a higher wage?) = a good deal

Never say Never but it is looking very unlikely Jamie will be back. Unless the club actually realise he is one of the best players at this level we can get and he actually wants to come here there must be some compromise from our side. Players like this don't come along that often.

If gethin has gone to tranmere as rumoured and Webster yet to sign a contract there’s money there. Webster was one of the highest earners last season and gethin will be on a decent wage. Use that money on devitt. If the board want promotion get devitt, a player whose desperate to be here. Holdsworth job is negotiating and he’s managed it seems to mess it up with devitt twice now. I understand EWM wanted a DOF but Holdsworth isn’t doing a good job. He’s got to go.

why shouldn’t the board want promotion, they are fans after all and should want THEIR team to win games. I don’t think they were aiming for promotion last season, last year seemed to be a balance the books job. Cheap, talentless players who would go at the end of the season to start with a clean slate. That’s what it looked like to me. Surely the money raised by the trust and any money from the tickets that weren’t sent back should go towards something the fans want rather than the board it their money. Did Lummy not come on here a couple of months ago saying the EWM deal was almost done?

You've got a lot to learn Aberdeen about how our BOD works. What's good for them comes first and dipping into their pockets for a promotion push doesn't come into it.

Any other club the attendances would've dropped a lot more than ours have. Their is one goal, stagnation.

As far as our board is concerned, the football stuff costs an arm and a leg and distracts from some nice scran and hob-nobbing.

Same scenario as last time, he wants a 2 year deal (fair enough) we are only offering 1 year.
Don't be surprised if he signs for Barrow.
