Mike, I can't come up with conspiracy theories like this when I am drunk
I was trying to ask a genuine question. Have PAFC stated that the contract blunder matter is closed as far as they are concerned as I cannot recall any statement from them to that affect.
As it goes, I don't see us managing to get a player like this on loan for the same reasons you mentioned but I am merely suggesting that if we did it could have something to do with the contract fiasco.
As I said, more a conspiracy theory than rumour
