Whilst one man departs, another man is set to stay.
Well, stay for another couple of weeks anyway, although I’m sure we’d much rather he be staying for another couple of years instead.
The Blues announced yesterday that Scott Hogan will be staying on with the club until the end of the Championship season is completed. Hogan has been a revelation since joining the club on loan in January, scoring seven goals in just nine games and developing a great partnership with Lukas Jutkiewicz upfront.
And whilst there has been plenty of debate about the possibility of him signing on permanently in the summer, I guess this kind of compromise will just have to do for now, and it’s a compromise that Blues fans didn’t seem too happy about.
Are you worried about the potential loss of goals if Hogan leaves?
They made their point quite clear that they want the whole thing, rather than just going halfway as it were.
Sign him permanently immediately

Just said that Kane before his value rockets because it will if he continues the vein of form he was in 💙✊

Can’t see Witton Town selling unfortunately, especially if they get relegated

Getting this man in on a permanent needs to be the number 1 priority post 2019/20 season. Top bagsman and seems to have found his home with us 💙⚽️

What about you? Are you happy with this news? Or will you only be happy if Hogan signs permanently?
