Millwall fail with second bid for Bantams target man


MILLWALL have had a second bid for Bradford City striker James Hanson turned down.

Lions chief executive Andy Ambler made the approach in Portugal at the Football League’s annual conference.

But Bradford’s joint chairman Mark Lawn said the bid fell well short of the Bantams’ valuation of the player.

He told the Telegraph and Argus: “I had a chat with him over there and he moved his bid slightly. But it’s nowhere near the valuation that we put on James.

“So unless they meet our criteria, James will remain our player. I’m not sure if they’ll come back. They said they weren’t going to up it from the first bid so you never know.”

Hanson scored 11 goals last season as Bradford dumped Chelsea out of the FA Cup on their way to the quarter-finals.

    Hopefully that turns our attention to Andy Williams released by Swindon. Also find it concerning that AA is having a big say in our transfers once again

      @Josh: totally agree Josh , city want half a million for him , 11 goals all season and didn't score in any of his last 15 games last season, yet another non goal scoring forward to add to our collection .

        @southstandview: agree with what you say. But I think a lot to do with are strikers not scoring goals is to do with are midfield no creativity. Obrien and gregory need to play off each other instead of being so far apart obrien drops deep to win balls so never in the right place when we are on the atack. Although one on ones they both need to work on in training.

          @dave666: I think greggs will score goals but obrien isn't a striker and will just warm the bench next season .

      Ambler hasn't got a big say in our transfers in terms of cash or players we want to sign, he simply does the negotiations. And the Swindon fella has got championship clubs after him, that's why he didn't sign a contract at Swindon, and that's why he will never be sighing for us and people need to get a reality check!

    Andy Williams is a free agent and scored 22 goals last season, I don't see why we can't get him!
