Noticed my second choice keeper at Newcastle had 18 months remaining on his 70,000pw contract so sat him down at the negotiating table where he requested a 3 year deal paying 0pw (signing on fee of 250k).
Offered him what he wanted (+ an additional 2 years) and he signed.
I've posted this in the bugs forum although maybe this isn't a bug and he just really loves playing for Newcastle United?
Edit: I have screenshots but seem to be struggling to upload them from my Mac :-(
