I say keep him!

He will be valuable in our many games and we're already one attacking midfielder short since Hleb has left and Keita will be away for some weeks.

6M is no great sum, the problem is that his salary is pretty high (5.5M i think?) which places him pretty high in the ranks. None the less. If he doesn't mind being on the bench we could very well renew him for 2 more years with a lower salary and let him stay here, thus also keeping his kids in the youth ranks.

But if he wants to play more and we can find a good replacement a wish him all the best.

will he EVER go away?

seriously...every F'in year some bottom teams from EPL are interested (West Ham every year involved) and at the end nothing happens.

Last year his price tag in the media was 3.5 mio. and now his contract runs out next year its 6 mio.? lol
