Newcastle reject latest bid so Crewe willing to go in with final offer
The future of midfielder Bradden Inman is still unresolved after Newcastle United rejected Crewe Alexandra’s third bid for the player. After much deliberation the Premier League side rejected the club’s latest offer, but manager Steve Davis is still hopeful that the two clubs can come to a solution and avoid a tribunal.
Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he assesses the situation and consider submitting a final offer for the Scotland Under-21 midfielder.
The Crewe boss said: “Our third bid for Brad was rejected by Newcastle, so we will have to look at our options and decide our next move.
“I think we have made them a very good offer, especially for a player who has not had a lot of first team experience. In fact it was us taking him on loan last season that gave him his first taste of that experience.
“We would still like to sign Brad and give him a chance to play competitive football, so I’m sure the club will go back in with a final offer. It won’t be too much more than what we have already offered because I think we have offered what we think he is worth.
“If that is rejected then we would have to decide whether to go into a tribunal situation, where it can be risky, or we decide that we have taken it as far as we can and the deal is finished.”
