'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hill Takes Harsh Line On Plans For Next Season

Keith Hill has said a few times he won't wait around for players to make their minds up, and his outlook hasn't softened.

Speaking to the Official Site with two of the eight players offered contracts yet to accept, Hill says he's not going to wait around and the players know exactly where he stands on this.

'I've been in contact with Jason (Kennedy) and he knows the position of the club. He has the right to look for alternatives but he knows where I stand. If I'm in a position where I can recuit a midfielder to replace him then he understands I'm going to do that and there is a possibility that his contract offer won't stand.'

It's a fair enough position really, everybody knows players and agents play clubs off against each other to secure the best deal and in the past you could argue too many clubs put up with that instead of acting themselves to drag some of the power back.

If a player does want to examine alternatives when they have an offer on the table, then I can't see anything wrong with club's equally looking at alternatives and potentially replacing them ahead of time if the chance arrives.

Seems fair to all sides really to me. A player more than has rights to see if a better deal is available, but a club also has the right and should excercise the option to get a better deal themselves instead of sitting back constantly and waiting.
