I get a board restriction to the contract length. So that there are no acceptable contract length available, hence I can't hire the player. I am with in budget, and it doesn't happen to all players.One player I could offer a contract on a free transfer (for ever there was a transfer fee as he was young). But if I offered the club nothing for him, which they accepted, I was suddently not allowed to offer any length in the contract. That is just wierd!
