Hopefully it's all part of the negotiation and a compromise can be found.

I said this about 2 weeks ago that it would all come down to the length of contract.

 

Let's hope we make him another offer.

Are any other Champ clubs going to offer a 3-year deal to a 34 yr old, who's 35 in October? I doubt it.

 

Give him a year with a structured option of a further year.

Deserves a 2 year deal. Be a disgrace if we lose him because we mess about and only offer him a 1 year deal.

This is all assumptions and guesswork, but I'd imagine, we've offered Westwood a pretty lucrative offer salary wise. And in my opinion, he should absolutely only be offered a one year deal if he stays as a high earner. There's far too much risk of having him sat in the treatment room for long periods. 

 

If he wants a two year deal...fine...give it him...but he takes a substantial pay cut, to avert the risks of having a high earner constantly injured. Maybe give him an added bonus if he plays in 95% of our competitive games?

 

Put the ball in his court...how confident is he that he'll stay fit?

1 year and an automatic extension if he plays 30+ games

I think we have to weigh up how much it would cost to sign another keeper of the same quality as Westwood . Personally i think giving Westwood a two year deal would be more cost  effective .

Give him 2 years. 

 

To to be fair Keepers get better as they get older. 

 

Not it like he’s a central midfielder whose legs are gonna go or a winger aka Jones & Boyd

It's impact injuries I'd be wary of with Westwood. Fantastic keeper but he isn't the most robust physically. 1yr + option would be sensible way forward for us.

That's not old for a goalie, however an option for a second year after X number of appearances is a decent compromise I think.

34 for a keeper is like 29 for an old field player, he's still performing to a very high standard at this level, he's gotta get 2 years surely. It will cost far more to replace a keeper of his quality.
