Town Demanding Fee From Aberdeen For Hladky
Thursday, 23rd Jun 2022 18:02

Vaclav Hladky’s move to Aberdeen looks to be inching closer but with the Blues and Dons yet to agree terms.

Football Scotland is reporting that the Dons, who are managed by Hladky’s former St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin, are hoping to sign the Czech on a free transfer but with the Blues digging their heels in regarding a fee. They claim Town want around £100,000.

TWTD understands the situation is as they outline, although with the Blues eyeing a slightly larger fee with the club aware that Aberdeen have just received £6.5 million from Liverpool for full-back Calvin Ramsay.

It seems likely the clubs will eventually come to an agreement regarding Hladky, who has been mentioned in connection with a move to Pittodrie since April.

The 31-year-old Czech started the season as the Blues’ number one but spent most of 2021/22 on the bench following the arrival of Christian Walton, initially on loan from Brighton before he signed a permanent deal in January.

The Brno-born keeper, who is contracted until the summer of 2024, has made only 14 appearances for Town, the most recent in Kieran McKenna’s first game in charge, the 1-0 victory over Wycombe in December.

Earlier this week, the Blues were linked with a move for Kilmarnock glovesman Sam Walker, who was with Blues keeper-coach Rene Gilmartin at Colchester, and it would be little surprise if Hladky’s exit was followed by Walker joining the club he supported as a boy.

Meanwhile, former Town assistant manager Stuart Taylor has left his role as head coach of Hamilton Academical.

A statement from the Accies reads: “Hamilton Academical FC can today confirm we have mutually agreed to part company with head coach Stuart Taylor. We thank Stuart and he leaves with our best wishes for the future.”

Does anybody know how much we paid Salford for him last year?

Struggled for most of his time at Portman road but that was behind a dodgy defence. Like a lot of players improved with the arrival of McKenna. Remember Bart struggled in his last season behind a poor defence. I think asking a fee of one hundred thousand is not unreasonable in this day and age.

Definitely showed glimpes of why we bought him in at times, but was playing behind a leaky defence. Feel sorry for the lad as he seems a good pro and an honest guy. Shame it didn’t work out for him here, but Walton is levels above any keeper in this league and at Hladky’s age, you can understand he’ll want to play regularly. Personally, I would like to keep him as a No2, but he wants games I’m sure. Good luck to him!

Nobbysnuts. Why is it a stupid headline? Unless you haven't actually read the story? If you have then it's a perfectly apt headline.

From the first time I’d watched him play for us I was thinking “ he’s out of his depth here”. Never looked comfortable with crosses , positioning and just overall stature just looked too small to cope with the hairy arsed players in league one . I wish him well in his new club when it happens.

Apparently he was brilliant for Salford. It’s a strange one. Hopefully the deal gets done and we both move on.

Lowest save percentage in L1 last season. Seemed to always allow the first shot of the match to go past him. Shaky from the beginning, and caused the defence to play nervous in front of him. I'm sure there's a good keeper in there but we didn't see it. Definitely needs a fresh start.

It's true that he played a lot of his games behind a weaker defence, and a back 4 before we switched to a 5 which we looked a lot more comfortable. Pre Morsy coming in our central midfield lacked a bit of bite too, so it wasn't really a fair test. Having said that on a case by case basis he did seem to let some really weak goals in. Can't remember the opponent but there was a freekick that I could've saved, some really costly mistakes that contributed to our slow start.

As others have said Walton is miles better. Hladky moving on makes sense for eeryone.

@Pencilpete like most fees these days it was never disclosed, but I would presume it was more than £100k

The deal should get done eventually which is another wage off the books and some of the fee recovered.

He was one of those that did not work out so if we can get a cheap back up in and McKenna can reinvest in another striker to supplement what we have already that would be good.

In my opinion if the likes of Penney, etc are hardly likely to play and we can use the likes of Humphries as back up it makes sense to get them off the payroll asap. That said, I don't think we have many more duds. Hoping McKenna can get a tune out of Edwards and Harper .
