Is he definitely going to Salford? Never been entirely convinced that that is his destination.

He looked fitter and seemed to enjoy his football a bit more playing for Lowe compared to Adams.
I would have been quite happy for him to have stayed but won't lose any sleep over him leaving as he was pretty average in our relegation season, so maybe staying in League 2 suits him from a footballing perspective.
I don't blame him for wanting to relocate back home and I'm sure that Salford can more than match any offer from Argyle or most other clubs at our level, so good luck to him.
Whilst I genuinely wish him well on a personal level, I find it hard to say anything positive about such an artificial club as Salford. They represent everything that is wrong with the financial model of lower-league football.
He's a league 2 player. Not consistent enough for league 1. I'm guessing Lowe made him an offer that reflected the fact that he wouldn't be getting much game time. Turning it down for 'family reasons' is just the stock response for saying the money wasn't good enough. Its not attractive to say its about the money as no-one likes to be seen as a money grabber. If Lowe's offer was a decent one then he would have stayed, after all, he loves it down here.
Just another example of people p*ssing down your back and telling you it's raining.
One day there might just actually be a bit of honesty from players, managers etc in what they say. Not sure I'll see it in my time.
I did like that he played his football with a real honesty though. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.

Whilst this has been the case for the last two seasons that the award winner has left immediately afterwards, Onismor Bhasera is the only other case of this I can see going back to the early 2000's.
Best of luck to Sarce - he will be a loss to this team. He's certainly not irreplaceable though and I look forward to seeing who Lowe can bring in to replace him. Bakinson always struck me as a player similar to Sarcevic - not a great passer or finisher but strong, has a good engine and can drive forward with the ball from midfield to start attacks. Maybe we could look into getting him back again.

Most of would agree that it's entirely possible to really love a job and place and still make a change for family and financial reasons, so I don't think he has been insincere in his love of Argyle/Plymouth in the slightest.
Best of luck, Sarce!

One of Sarcevic's best performances for Argyle was at Salford, it's also close to home for him.
