Buff wants away, has made that clear over several transfer windows. I think he has been unsettled by that agent of his much to the player's detriment.
If I was Buff I tell him to shut his hole and focus on regaining his form, then perhaps some of the clubs he wants a move to might be interested enough to pay the asking price and the wages he wants.
Management team needs to get Itten firing otherwise we need another striker
Even if that doesn't happen they'll need a top drawer manager in the door along the lines of MON/Rodgers level, top drawer by this league's standard, along with a clearout of players to get going next season and all that won't be cheap. If they don't get the ten it could set them back at least a season.
