Diao and Upson on their way out?
Salif Diao has turned down a coaching offer at the club as he wants to carry on playing, so expect him to leave in the summer when his contarct is up. He has been a loyal servant for the club and good when called upon, if a tad rash with his tackles.
Southampton are keen on signing Matthew Upson in the summer even though he still has a year to run on his contract. He may stay though if we don’t keep Woodgate and Danny Higginbotham joins Notts Forest.
Other players out on contract in the summer include Tom Soares, Andrew Davies, Big Mama, Ricardo Fuller (although he has been offered a one year contract) and Carlo Nash.
Matthew Jarvis of Wolves has been lined with us and would be a good signing, especially if Jermaine Pennant leaves in the summer as rumoured.
