As a boyhood Evertonian, it is a bit of a dick move to run your contract down, knowing your fee will be reduced.
Just sign a contract with the agreement that you can talk to whoever if a bid comes in, rather than running it down and putting Everton in a weak position.
Even if he's got a poor relationship with Koeman, it's the Club and the supporters who are going to feel this most, not Koeman.
Maybe he does resent some of the uneccesarily harsh treatment he gets from some corners of the fanbase, I don't know, or maybe he feels unwanted, or maybe he's been offered a contract below what him and his agent think he is worth.
However, if it's the tapping up scenario that GLewis mentions, then I think he's being a bit of a dick.
Oh, and I want him to stay.
Fucking love him to bits.
Probably why I'm calling him a dick for wanting to leave.
It bloody hurts, all this.
