Well over hundred k I heard,some players maybe price them selves out of a contract,we are talking about a few years ago,if the figure is right?
IIRC it wasn't unreasonable but Not-nots offered him substantially more as well as an ongoing player/coach role
Also IIRC Barkley was seen as his natural successor at the time so the decision to let him go was that much easier
Either way he didn't leave the club on good terms - a real shame considering what a great player and servant for Bath he'd been.
