It was reported last week that Mile Jedinak could be set to leave Villa Park with a “multi-year” contract agreed with a club on the continent.
Australian website SBS The World Game believed that our no.15 could be joining a team outside the top five European leagues, suggesting that Turkey, Russia or Greece were his likeliest destination.
Jedinak’s sizeable wages mean that the Aussie’s sale is almost inevitable this summer, and when I asked fans about selling the 33-year-old, most backed the decision to get him off the wage bill:
The Express & Star reported on Saturday that the club are, in fact, looking to offload the midfielder due to his salary, although they don’t go as far as SBS in saying a deal has been agreed for him to move elsewhere.
There are conflicting reports over how much Jedinak is on, but he is believed to be one of the top wage earners, and I have to agree that his sale is likely despite the experience he offers the squad.
What do you think? Is selling the Australian international the right move? Let me know in the comments.
