I think the Mckenna sale will have the most significant impact on our summer transfers even more than the out of contract players.
I believe youth will be served for out of contracts: Campbell for Shinnie, McLennan for GMS possibly Wright for Stewart (if he does not take us up on our 3 year offer). With Consi and Ball (on loan) appearing to be open to resigning.
McKenna replacement - assuming Shaughnessy if his precontract ever gets over the line. Management has said some of the funds would be allocated over time to the first team but recently the Chairman has been mentioning player sales to fund the new stadium. Assuming some of the Mckenna money would go to extending Joe Lewis contract but maybe they allocate enough for Max Lowe on a permanent deal or a loan fee for another year from Derby. I think the Gaffer has fallen in love with an attacking full back for a change. If I remember the Hayes sale allowed us to acquire GMS and do a few contract extensions plus Christie loan extension.
No Tansey or Forrester financial albatross next year. A young club with an average age in early 20s with many young pieces locked down and assuming Cosgrove scoring is not a one year wonder should form a good nucleus.
