Has been confirmed on the official website.
I doubt we’ll get to hear the details of what we’ve received for him. You have to remember we paid a decent sum to bring him to club, and he’s become a full Republic of Ireland international in that time.
A tribunal would have seen us get far more than the £500k that it’s rumoured we received for him. I’m sure of that.
We’ve lost him on deadline day, with no sign of a replacement coming in and seemingly minimal compensation.
And on a separate note, his farewell to the club turned out to be a crescendo of undeserved boos, even given how vital he’s been for us this year.
I reckon we’re going to miss him.
