SWINDON TOWN: Reports: Carlisle closing in on Archibald-Henville capture

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald: Troy Archibald-Henville is reported to be set to sign for Carlisle United Troy Archibald-Henville is reported to be set to sign for Carlisle United

REPORTS this evening have suggested Troy Archibald-Henville is poised to sign for Carlisle United.

The centre-back had been offered a pay as you play deal with Swindon Town following the expiration of his contract with the Wiltshire side, but his name has been circulated around League One and League Two clubs over the course of the last month and Robins manager Mark Cooper recently admitted that the former Tottenham Hotspur trainee looked unlikely to return to the County Ground for the 2014/15 campaign.

Archibald-Henville spent time at Brunton Park on loan last season and the Cumbrians hold the former Exeter City man in high regard.

Apart for the last third of last season and a couple of very early appearances when he first signed, Troy has been a considerable burden on Towns finances.
It's a shame that the player and the club can't agree terms, but I believe Troy owes us far more than we owe him.
I know a players career is often short lived, but it would be nice to see some level of loyalty from time to time.

Have no idea what wages the player has or is on.When fit Trou played well for STFC,it´s ubfortunated his time at the CG has been dogged with injuries.
Alas the Town have to work within a budget and his injury has caused him and STFC a lot of problems.
All we can say is he has been offered a deal and if he does now move I hope he does ok

Don't understand this - show on the other foot, if you'd been off work with a long term injury, and you were given the chance either to go elsewhere for a regular wage or stay where you are out of loyalty so that you could get a pay cheque only when you're fit enough to be in, what would you choose? I don't blame anyone for not wanting to sign a pay as you play contract, same as I don't blame town for not offering a permanent deal. Not sure why either party has to be in the right or wrong - the club realise the financial burden if they offered a permanent deal hence the pay as you play contract, the player presumably wants a guaranteed income. Can't blame either side for holding their respective views.

I remember when Abbott wanted Roberts and said he couldn't beleive the money we were offering and how far out of Carlisle price range he was
.
Troy must fit in a similar boat - so how can they afford to do a deal with him?
.
Surely we could have offered a mutually beneficial deal?
.
Then again - I guess we should see what Power has lined up first as that might be why this has happened

We've only offered a pay as you play contract, so even if Carlisle have offered meagre guaranteed wages, for Troy its better than risking getting injured in first game.

But yes thinking about it surely we could have matched the Carlisle offer or met half way somehow

More or less along my lines of thinking - pay as you play is no good to someone prone to injury after all.

Que sera sera. A new era starts now. Don't think I'll get too excited about any comings or goings until we see how we're performing in the first couple of months of the season.

You would have thought a low guaranteed wage wiuth a massive appearance fee would have been the compromise
.
That way if injured it is like us taking a gamble on a youngster - bit like A.Smith or Branco last season
.
If he then is injury free he gets paid well and we get a decent CB and it could see his contract rejigged the following year
