And another Bulldog inbound Danny Yates

I find this announcement rather strange. Doesn't it go against our usual policy of not announcing signings of players currently under contract to other clubs until that club have finished their fixtures?

Also if we can make this announcement why do we not announce which current players have not been offered a contract for next season or those who have been offered one but have stated they do not wish to sign for next season?

Not sure. It was certainly common knowledge on Sunday that Yates was signing for us perhaps that's why, it could also be that the club is still negotiating with certain players, who are considering our offer or trying to go d a better one!

I was thinking same,at least the Rams show some respect to other clubs by not announcing any new signings until beginning of February😀

Nothing whatsoever strange about announcing a signing now before the end of the season. Other Clubs can announce the signing of any of our players at a time they wish. I am not aware of Clubs announcing their players have signed for a different Club but if they have it is up to them. If we have not announced one of our existing players has signed for next season then he has not. He may sign later or may have signed for another club but that is his business. If a player wants to announce anything himself we cannot stop him but he may wish to keep his affairs private. We always get agreement of player before we announce his signing. Nothing has changed and nothing wrong with our approach.As soon as we can and feel it is right we will announce signings. We will hopefully be announcing more signings before the end of the season and indeed within a week but we have to get everything over the line first.
