The summer transfer window opens in a few weeks but beforehand the Whites still have plenty they need to sort out.
Whilst they’ll, hopefully, be looking at good players ready to improve our side for 2018/19, we also need to get contracts sorted for some of the talent at the club.
Tom Pearce is certainly one of them, then, with Phil Hay providing an update that talks are scheduled for this week.
Let’s look at that, then, and the reaction to the update, with many of us worried that he’s going to end up leaving for free:
Another academy player we’ll lose ????????????

TBF to the club, it’s the exception now (not the rule) to lose them to others. We seem to have leant.

Just get him signed, he's better than anyone you have got.
If he does not sign we all know who's fault it is and just because you didn't get two clubs relegated this season don't mean you can get us relegated next season PH, ORTA, KINNEAR, BRAVO, VIO AND RADZ

6 goals in 25 apps in Serie B at a small club whose ground only holds 5,500 – how does that justify £3mill? Sign someone of real quality and bring Academy players through . Also do what it takes to keep Pearce. Keep Tom forget Jerry

Yet another young player not signed up in time ????

To be fair we've been very good at that post-Massimo.

AR hasn't got a clue how to run a football club

Sign him please..
Let’s build a team with a mix of experience and youth as part of the strategic way forward for our club ..

I really hope we get a deal over the line for young Tom.
We’ve let this one run on and on and now we’re in real danger of losing him especially now other clubs have seen he has got a bit about him with his senior appearances.
He’s a player we need to keep.
