Whitney - Walsall is a Developing Club, People Are Going to Move on

As he continues to meet with several members of his first-team squad with a view to securing their futures, Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and admitted that the club has little option to sell its best players as bigger clubs can offer vast financial incentives.
As he continues to meet with several members of his first-team squad with a view to securing their futures, Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and admitted that the club has little option to sell its best players as bigger clubs can offer vast financial incentives.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "We’ve got to face what we are – we are a developing club. We develop young players, help them become the finished article and then other people come and cherry-pick them. We’re a club where people are going to move on.

"I think any fan, if we are honest, if you wake up and someone is offering you eight times your wage, I would ask if any of them would say no.

"That’s me being honest as a manager. I have to be realistic what I’ve got to try to aim for. This club is a developing club and we have to keep trying to push as high as we can but I can understand players as well."
