theblueferret is on a distinguished road

Default Contract expiring...

I manage Everton and bought Alex Smithies a few seasons ago for 600k. He sat in my reserves doing nothing, and then when Howard got injured, he went in the team and did a fantastic job. It's now July 2014, he's my No.1 and Howard's long gone. He has one year left on his contract.
However, since his time in the reserves, his General Happiness is: 'Determined to prove worth to the team' and since he doesn't believe he is wanted, he refuses to sign a new contract, or even enter discussions. This, in light of given him the No. 1 shirt, setting his squad status to Key Player and playing him in 30+ games!

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Rowse is an unknown quantity at this point


He may well re-assess in the summer, it certainly happenned in FM10, the only problem you have got is if someone offers him a pre-contract.
