Steve Davis believes it will be difficult to retain forward following relegation.
Steve Davis is hoping to hold further talks with Bradden Inman about his future once his involvement with the Australian national team concludes. Inman is hoping to make his debut for Australia against England on Friday evening after he was granted permission to represent the country of his birth after previously representing Scotland at Under-21 level.
Inman’s good form for Crewe Alexandra last season saw him score 10 goals in all competitions and Davis believes that our relegation to League Two will count against us when it comes to convincing him to remain at the Alexandra Stadium.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “Brad has been coming in to keep his fitness levels up but he has joined up with Australia now for the England game and we will have to see what happens after that. He wants to focus on that first.
“He has had a good season and rediscovered the form that made us want to sign him from Newcastle in the first place. He has been linked with a number of clubs and if there is any substance in that, only Brad and his agent know.
“If there are bigger clubs interested then it is going to be difficult for us to convince him to stay. Going down to League Two has not helped our cause either.
“There is bound to be interest in him. He has talent, pace and can take a goal. We want to keep him and all we can do is talk to him and his agent to see if there is a chance.”
