BBC saying McKenna and Pert want to move on 16:00 - May 22 with 33690 viewsBluebacker

Talks with Ipswich are likely to take place this week and the Tractor Boys are expected to offer McKenna a new deal to convince him to stay at Portman Road.

BBC Sport understands that is expected to fail with the manager, and assistant Martyn Pert, feeling the time is right to move.

There was a time that this being on the BBC would be a massive concern but given the hit and miss nature of some of their recent articles I'm not quite on full alert just yet.

It almost has the vibe of guesswork and is a bit contradictory. Suggesting McKenna and Pert want to go and there is no panic from Ipswich is somewhat at odds. I'm sure we'll have a top replacement identified and lined up, it's what Ashton does, but the no panic bit suggests we think we can keep him whilst the rest is basically saying he wants to go.

The BBC writer is a Norwich fan. So he probably enjoyed writing the story.

I don;t think it is "at odds" - Ashton should (and I expect has) been planning for this moment for a while.

I’m wondering whether there’s a bit of careful story-placement going on, in both this and the earlier reports of the new contract offer.

Depressing, isn’t it. Clubs now treated as projects to work on for a couple years before bouncing off to the next project. Where’s the loyalty?

As well as PortmanKing's seemingly-decent knowledge of how KM's agents appear to be working with the media and their client journalists.

Very very odd that this is all playing out in the media given the relative media silence we have enjoyed since Ashton took over.

Possibly just McKenna's agents seeking to stoke the fire and increase ££ but to have a leak about the contract being offered and then another leak that you are going to reject a deal before talks have supposedly taken place feels very odd.

If this was the case surely Kieran would have just told that to Mark and then there would be no talk and no contract?

Also what does Kieran or his team gain from having this in the press? Re-assuring Brighton/ Chelsea? Making it known to other parties they are seeking to leave? Can't you just have those conversations between agents?

It's no co-incidence that of the people in football who I've seen giving an opinion on if McKenna should move on, the two who have said he should are Chris Sutton and Sam Allardyce.

Jealousy is such a powerful trait.

Nah not buying that. Norwich fan with a silly made up name writing a troll piece for the BBC innit.
Also the bit about Chelsea being leading the race seems hard to believe. I can see why he'd be tempted by Brighton and Man U obviously but Chelsea? Nah. I'd also have thought getting sacked after 3 months at Chelsea would hinder his chances of landing the Man U job which is surely his end goal.

McKenna is not innocent from the actions of his agent. Yes agents are pushy and want their £££, but they won't act against his interests and he'll have briefed them on what he wants.

Very true and very much in contrast to the Palace rumours a few months back. Supposedly he was the primary candidate but there was little to no media speculation beyond that.

Also Ipswich doesn't leak things. This smells of Brighton and Chelsea desperation or just some flat out BS.

Enough now.

Not difficult to guess where that will have come from. Heard before that the agent favours Chelsea as KMc's next club. I don't see that happening.

Not saying he's driving it by any means, but if he wanted to stay the approach is a bit heavy handed so far.

It all depends on how hands-on he is in his relationship with them.

There's a big difference between saying "I want you to leverage any and all interest this Summer in order to get me a bumper new deal" and "I expect you to look out for my best interests" for example.

Think that actually came rather closer than we realised at the time.
