Papa Bouba Diop has left Blues today after his short term contract expired. Lee Clark confirmed that the club’s finances would not allow him to offer the Senegalese midfielder a further month’s deal.
Diop made just two appearances for Blues, scoring the equaliser against Crystal Palace in the process.
Clark said- “We are not keeping him on because of the situation the club finds itself in. He is a talented footballer who still has got a lot to offer, but unfortunately we cannot keep pursuing that deal. Of course I would have wanted to keep him. Forget my relationship with him and playing alongside him because that’s never come into the equation. What’s been the important thing is that he’s a good player and a fantastic character”.
