The Sun are saying we will not offer an improved deal yet a journalist on Twitter reckons we are in discussion with him as things haven't panned out the way he'd hoped after leaving. Find that quite difficult to believe as you would of thought don't tear up your contract unless you had 2 or 3 clubs interested in you!
Think this is the important bit , the grass isn't always greener

I assume it's the original offer we made him which is still on the table. I certainly don't think we should be offering him any more money than what was in that deal. He is just looking for more money and probably thought that by invoking the "leave early" clause it would either (a) alert other clubs he was available, or (b) push Hibs into offering him more. I still think he will be signed up by an English club (or perhaps Celtic again), but like most fans I would love to see him sign the original deal we offered him.

as far away fi The Saville Dome as possible
If you want quality over quantity then he is your man. Doesn't tend to get injured, is very fit, doesn't pick up many suspensions. When you look at some players who have barely kicked a ball this season , I know where I'd be spending the cash.

Absolutely. Best player at the club since McGinn left.

Pretty sure Hibs will have pushed the boat out here, for all the reasons above.
But if Efe is looking for wages equivalent to what he could reasonably command down south then it was never going to happen.

Since he signed for Hibs I don’t remember him ever having an injury or a suspension. He’s available for every game.

That's quite an unusual release clause he has in his contract whereby you are effectively a free agent in the January transfer window at a time when there are only a few decent players around many of whom still require a pay of, as well as the many dubious players who might make it or might not and just loads and loads of complete and utter duds.

To have a player of Efe's quality available for zero expense other than his signing on fee puts him in a strong position and its nice to still be in with an outside chance of him resigning.

Its his last pay day and he is right at his peak though and its hard to see that there wont be better offers out there.

Have to say that it remains a mystery to me how we got him in the first place .

I love watching his casual style of play, but he has a reputation for being a liability, and that's not easy to shake off.I don't think there'll be many better offers to him....hope he comes back

Just because he's not signed for anyome doesn't mean he's not got offers?

We knew about suitors in Turkey and France? He'll be weighing up his options, he's got time to do so.

If us offering him an improved deal free'd him up, we shouldn't have bothered. Doesn't really make sense.
Sounds like he was always free to do this I think.

Watching the game yesterday. Get him signed back up pronto. We'll never be able to sign a player with his quality, he's worth paying the extra money for.

My writing is terrible. I was watching the game on TV, but it stood out like a sore thumb how much we miss the big guy at the back. Hopefully we can convince him to finish his career here.
