No deal

Well due to silly pricing we didn't manage to get anyone else on board. The club officially had a bid turned down for Darren Bent thought to be £3m with Ipswich wanting £5m and Stuart on loan. As for Andy Reid, the club didn't confirm anything, but it seems we have been sniffing around. Andy Reid speaks of his frustration of his high price tag here.

“Danny Murphy went to Charlton from Liverpool for £2.5m. He played for England, he’s in Liverpool’s first team, he’s been one of their top three scorers for the past few years and that’s his price. Francis Jeffers went to Charlton as well for £2m. Then there’s me. Ok, I’m younger than them and I have got potential, but I haven’t proved myself at Premiership level.”

Either he's complimenting shrewd business in the transfer market or we were interested.
