Does that mean they're keeping Ankergren or is he still under contract?

Navarro has been a grrat player for us this season, surprised at not getting a new contract, would have been good as a squad player but at the end of the day he isn't a player that can get us to the next level. Good luck to him and I'm sure he'll still be playing championship football next season.

I thought Navarro was probably 50/50 for a new contract. Not surprised by this but surprised Ankergren and Brezovan aren't going too.

He's not necessarily going to announce all of them at once. I'm sure he's done it in dribs and drabs before.

you would think he needs to get a player lined up before releasing more id expect anks to go as soon as we get another no1 in place too

I'm not a massive navarro fan, but for the first time I have seen, Zamora25 makes a fair point - if Gus thinks he's good enough to play the vast majority of matches, then it seems odd that he would let him go... Hopefully we have a quality replacement lined up.

Why link the number of games Navaro played with his contract? Could it be that Poyet has other players in mind for this role next season?
Navarro was a good player - not great, but good, - but surely we must trust the manager's judgement and acknowledge that he might not be a candidate for the team next year!

Powney was a short a@se - I hate short keepers. Tony Burns was better than him anyway. What about Geoff Sidebottom, Peter Grummit, Graham Moseley? Gotta say that none of the keepers currently at the club cut the mustard - a bit like the strikers. Let's hope this gets resolved in the summer!

Ken in Spain says...

As we are down to 2 keepers, that are still under contract, you could assume he is looking for another one at least. I noticed the Newcastle keeper on loan at Celtic is subject to a 2 mil bid from them. That would be a great coup for a young keeper who has experience at top level. Go on Gus, get Fraser Forster onoard the bus.

If you read carefully what Navarro said, he said the club was not prepared to offer him a contract "at this time". Whether that was said to soften the blow or whether it means the club are keeping their options open and Navs was trying to force their hand by announcing it on twitter I don't know. Poke tried the same trick and he got his answer.

I would have thought Navarro was worth retaining even as cover for bridders if he gets injured or sold. Therefore, the timing of Bridders contract extension is interesting. Navs could stay if there was a big bid for Bridcutt, but he might find another club in the meantime

Ankergren will stay as long as his contract lasts or until he can find another club I would have thought.
