That is a real shame, I hoped both were staying

Shame if the Purdy rumour is true.

What's the source of the Purdy rumour?

Ladypoticha posted it on Twitter this morning. Said that she had an inside contact that wasn't a player.

A good squad player. It'll be interesting to see, if true, who made the call: Club or Player.

Purdy is at that stage of his career where he needs to kick on and get regular team appearances, I just don't see that happening with us, particularly if we sign Harris. Seabrook steps into Purdy's squad role so as much as I like to see players retained a move probably makes sense for the player and the club

I agree with that. He's a good player but possibly not good enough to start in a team that wants to be in the top 4 every year.
