He has no current contract with the Blues. He signed a 2 year deal, which has expired.
I will say that if it doesn't happen this summer, then it isn't going to happen. But we were certainly showing interest last season before his injury. He has progressed further this season and if he is looking for a 1-way contract worth around $1.5m then the benefits probably outweigh the risks.
