    Absolutely no chance have we activated the clause without him joining.

    I can’t see us having activated the extension until any deal was signed. We would have known a medical could be tricky.

    I still expect him to sign for a Ligue 1 club.

    It would typical if we’ve activated the clause before the deal was agreed :giggle1:

    Surely they would agreed personal terms before he travelled to Germany. He must failed medical.

    Holy *, big Jullien has * done us hasn’t he?? Haha.

    I wondered why he flew and done the medical only to immediately reject the terms in person.

    You would think us and Schalke would have agreed as to how much each of us will paying towards his wage before he travelled to Germany?

    All a bit strange.

    Hopefully we can punt him elsewhere on a permanent now then.

    That my fear. This whole situation seems a bit bizarre. Wagev arrangement would surely have been in place before he boarded the plane. Worry for Julien more than ever now. It might not just be with us that his career has ended. He could be in for a compper style end to his career from here

    The arrival of Christopher Jullien at Schalke 04 is not completely ruled out. Discussions are continuing between representatives of the players and the Ruhr club. Still no agreement between the two parties.

    Surely that’ll be it ruled out now.

    Hopefully get a few bidders from France.

    A like the big man but he shat it from Dykes now he's trying to run away from competition for places.

    No very superman like big man

    I rate him more highly than Starfelt tbh. Whether he’s as suited to Ange’s style of play is probably up for debate but he’s a better defender.

    If he can regain his form from before his injury then he’ll be a good signing for someone.

    What I find most concerning in all this is no one has categorically confirmed that the shalke deal didn't come down to a fitness issue. Like some and unlike some I am of the belief he offers more than starfelt but if he isn't it fit or capable of passing a medical then everything suddenly makes sense. If it is a fitness issue surely we are better placed to let him leave then pay his wage? If fitness isn't an issue surely we can find another suitor fairly quickly?

    He wants to play. So far he hasn’t done anything that has convinced the manager he should play ahead of Starfelt. His post season interview and the flying out to talk to Schalke probably is an indication of where his head is at.

    Given we had the best defensive duo last season then it is going to be hard to displace either CCV or CS. Those two played together most of last season so have developed an understanding and CJ is gonna struggle to force his way j to Anges plans. Even more so if he is struggling with fitness issues.

    The reporting I saw said he passed the medical but couldn't agree personal terms. Not a great sign for someone supposedly unhappy about lack of game time not taking an opportunity like that. He needs to make up his mind.

    Possibly he didn't have a choice about at least talking to Schalke but you'd think he'd not post * on Instagram if that was the case.
