Hermann Hreidarsson was expected to leave this month – with him openly admitting he wanted to go and saying that the club would let him, but Tony Adams has ruled this out. He wants the defender to stay and fight for his place.

I can understand why Hreidarsson would want to leave, as when you are 34 you know that you do not have many more years in the game so you want to play as much as you can, and doing that here that often is not looking on for him really is it?

He will almost certainly leave in the summer if he does stay, so I say – as I have before – why not retain him until then? He cannot be on a massive amount of money wages wise and he is they type of player that I feel we do need – if called on he will do a job, and that is what we need. All you have to do is look back to the Heerenveen game, he had not played for some time before that but he came in and did a great job at the back and scored.

Yep, I know it is selfish but sorry Hermann I say why let him go, keep him and if he comes into the side keep him there if he does well… That said if he ‘desperately’ wants to leave then we will have to let him, as players not wanting to be here are not what we need or want are they.
