|Boyce will switch to claret and blue in January|
Andrew Boyce is to become a Scunthorpe player in the near future. This morning it was announced by various media outlets that the Iron had triggered a release clause in the central defenders contract, and that he was expected to be officially an Iron player on January 1st. Hurrah!
We had in fact tried to take the player on loan until he officially joins, but it seems Lincoln rejected that approach outright.
I can understand why they would have wanted to hold onto one of their star men for a little longer, but they could have saved themselves some cash on his wages from now until January, and tried out the pairing of some of their other centre backs to ensure they don’t miss Boyce too much once he does leave.
Imps manager Gary Simpson said “I wasn’t aware of the release clause in his contract but they have activated the fee so at the end of the day we are powerless to stop it.”
