I fully expect Kennedy to sign for Hearts in due course. Next?

In this situation I’m actually more optimistic. Hearts are bottom and one of the relegation favorites, not sure players want to commit to that uncertainty.

Possibly. But Edinburgh is decent and they'll probably be able to match our wage offer.

Think hes verbally agreed to join https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/matty-kennedy-agrees-aberdeen-pre-21274428

I remember a few seasons back the rat had verbally agreed to join some Yank MLS club. Or indeed most famously, 30 or so years ago Mo Johnston had agreed to rejoin Celtic and actually got paraded on TV wearing the strip.

Until the contract (and I mean full contract not a pre-contract) is signed.....there is always a way out

The problem Hearts have is they need players now to stave off relegation, while St Johnstone need to keep players to stave off relegation.

Not sure Hearts will want him on a pre-contract because what if they offer big money, get relegated, and are left with a player on a hefty wage in the Championship?

Preferably we'd get him now too but think we'll settle for a pre-contract.

happy enough with this but await the broom cupboard picture to confirm.
Not sureI'd be chucking money at Saints to get him now though unless we're moving players out and if we are to sell one of our prize assets we'll be seen as having money to burn in any negotiation.

Arbroath fans seem very pleased with this. They seemed to think that he had been doing so well that we would recall him in this window.

Yeh someone was posting his stats on twitter from wyscout. He's been playing predominantly right-back, and is number one in the Championship for tackling and interceptions. Has also won 62.5% of defensive duels.

With Logan out of contract in summer, good to know we may have a decent right-back option for next season.

Delighted to hear that, it is division one though so you wouldn't think he's got the trickiest wingers to face.

Always been highly thought of, even in the reserves, so i'm pleased to see his progress. It would be great to get someone young and with a bit of fight in

Kennedy pre-contract confirmed.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

You’d like to think we could give or loan a player or two to get him now. Even something like 20k plus someone. Adding him now may improve our chances of third, worth the punt. I’d loan them McLennan.

To be honest, i'm surprised that McLennan or someone else wasn't part of it. although we don't know what was proposed between the clubs.  I'm guessing they need him for their relegation battle.

The cash prize pot for being in the SPL next season is apparently quite markedly increased and St Johnstone really don't want to miss out on it by getting relegated which is why their manager is so keen to keep him till season's end. But they also have a desperate need for a CH (presumably they have injury problems). I still think we should offer them Devlin as a straight swap...….Devlin has been piss poor for 12 months and is deservedly 4th choice. He only cost us £50k and my info is that he is "unsettled"......hardly surprising given he is fairly regular in Scotland squads but cannot get a game for us......I think it would suit everyone. Probably not a popular view with a lot of our support but right now he's getting paid a fairly hefty wage just to sit on the bench each week and likely won't even be needed for that once Leigh is fit again with Consi moving back to CH and Taylor to the bench.

I wouldn't be averse to it TC.  He's been utter pish for a long time and as you say, likely to be on a reasonable wage. If it means getting a winger in now, it would be worth it.

Seems to be highly thought of, and likely to be signed for the same intentions like Ferguson was. Not expecting him to be in the first team soon, but that said, we thought that of Ferguson.
