The problem is always the same isn't it when it comes to contract negotiations , the players aren't  in control of all the media stuff .
'Good' agents will link them with other Clubs , and use the various 'rumour' sites to spread the word .
They hope that gives them an edge in contract renegotiations and hopefully ups their worth .
Pretty shady world but its not going away
Unfortunately all the speculation can be unsettling , but on the other hand , what would we talk about ?


I know the theory goes that agents will leak rumours to the press to up a player's worth and improve their bargaining position, but is there actually any truth in this? If we think that's what happens, then surely the clubs, who are far more in the know, would also know it's happening and so just ignore it.

I can't believe for instance that Quins would let their contract negotiations with Clifford be influenced by what Fissler or RIL might say. I'm sure the club knows who is after which of our players without an agent having to spread the rumours
