Who needs an agent when social media seems to be the way forward for transfers these days?
Paul Hayes, a 34-year old journeyman forward with notable spells at Scunthorpe and Charlton, had been a free-agent since the summer.
Newport Manager Mike Flynn found him on LinkedIn, much to Hayes’ surprise, who is now signed to a contract.
Clubs / Managers are exploring all avenues to find players these days and with social media, the world is their oyster. Again, players with professional aspirations, please be aware of what you post on social media…it could make or break a deal.
Moral of the story, get a Linkedln account…you never know who might search your profile!
Wouldn’t it be nice to get a Linkedln message from Mourinho or Zidane ??
Anything is possible…
