    To re-sign or not to re-sign

    I have a second string 4* legacy player who has been with me for three seasons and was good for me once but does not play many matches anymore. I want to hold him over to lower my team Q for better draws, you know the logic. I will sell him in the new season. The question is do I re-sign him now (before season's end) or in the offseason? Are there any repercussions for the wrong timing? Like, if I don't re-sign him now maybe he won't count towards my team Q when the league and cup are drawn?

    Is there any advantage or disadvantage at all to sign early? Like if I sign him now, what will his contract length be when the new season starts? 3 years or 2?

    2, it just cost a little more because the signing bonus is a % of his current value, and next season his value will be less.

    I'll think I'll leave him unsigned then. Unless someone tells me unsigned players don't count towards team Q for seeding purposes. That would be an incentive to sign.

    I did not get to where I am by wasting my money

    If you sign him on Day 28, your contract will remain for 2 years, yes. But you don't have to pay any wages on Day 1. You can sell him then. The bonus can be covered then.
    On the other hand if you leave him unsigned, releasing him will give no money.
    And I feel unsigned players count. This season my 3 lowbies were unsigned, despite that I got a decent draw (but lost in round 1 hehe).

    A good defence is the best offense.

    The plan is to sign him on day 1 and sell in short order (or whenever free slots are needed). Is there a problem with this plan?
