We certainly do not need to sell him as some imply because we need the money. We are still flush. The only need is to stop wasting on his wages. If he does not leave then Koeman has to play him somewhere, sometime over the next year. He can't be totally useless and will make a better physical presence maybe on the bench, than the likes of DCL who needs to get some pork pies inside him to add a bit of bulk if he is to make a target man.
