So the problem was that Willock wanted a 6 year contract and not shorter? Sounds pretty weird. I would think he rather wants a shorter contract to get a better wage faster again. Isn't 5 years pretty normal? He will be bound to Newcastle for a long time if this is true, unless he has a release clause. Or maybe he just doesn't back himself.
What happens more often than not:But most clubs do at least Agee with player and his agent verbally between contact the club look like the problem was contract length not money
They can agree numbers but it can get complicated when buying clubs add clauses like optional contract extensions, which usually aren’t discussed until after clubs have agreed a fee.Could be but nowadays most club make sure they agree things with players first verbally before going agree things other club. Anyway I'm glad they found agreement
