Steve Unsure Over Hollands Deal

30 December 2016

Boss may let Danny go to fund January Business

Manager Steve Davis has revealed he is uncertain over the future of Danny Hollands, with the midfielder’s contract set to expire on January 19 2017.

The 31-year-old signed the six-month deal in August, and whilst Davis is tempted by the prospect of keeping the former Portsmouth man until the end of the season, he has hinted he could let his man go in order to fund other January transfer business.

Hollands has been a regular in the side this season, making 23 appearances to date, scoring once in the 2-0 victory over Exeter in September.

Steve said: “I Spoke to Danny yesterday (Thursday), I told him we haven’t made a decision on him yet – so he knows where we stand.

“He’s been fine, he’s been good around the place, I like him as a bloke. I’ve got nothing but good things to say about him from that point of view.

“His form has been decent, but he’s had a bit of a dip and he knows that, but he’s still very capable and he’s done what we needed him to do. 

“He’s been the big man, capable in both boxes – certainly defensively. He sees the danger, whereas our other midfielders off something different.

“We initially brought Danny in for something different, because that’s what we wanted. Whether he stays from now until the end of the season we’ll have to wait and see.

“I’ve not made that decision yet because I’ve got to try and generate some money from somewhere. Danny’s money might be important to us if we think we can bring in somebody that’s different or better, maybe two players.

“If I can’t loan any of our out then I have to try and do something to generate some money, so in the end that will be the decision in Danny’s case.”
