By not signing anything he can in some form hold a veto over where Lowe can trade him.
By not signing anything he avoids having to repeat this whole fiasco next year when Lowe says you're mine till 31.
By saying he'll sign for less elsewhere he is making 2 statements:
1. I'm better than you think I am, I'll prove it elsewhere and they will pay me for my performance.
2. I want out of this asylum.
So why do you think he should just sign with Lowe? What advantage does this give Comrie?
Or maybe you think he should sign and the immediately hold out?
