Alex boss says striker has to resolve his Orient future before we can discuss a possible move.
David Artell has told the club’s official web-site that he can’t think about signing Jordan Bowery on a permanent basis until his future at his parent club Leyton Orient is resolved.
Crewe’s 3-0 over the O’s on Saturday relegated them to the National League for the first time in their 112 history, but Bowery still has 12 months remaining on his contract with the Londoners.
Artell is a keen admirer of Bowery and believes that the towering striker has helped Crewe become more of a threat in the final third. His arrival on loan n January certainly helped transform Chris Dagnall’s goalscoring record at the club.
Daggers had scored just two league goals before Bowery’s arrival but he has now scored 9 more to take his tally to the season so far to 14.
The Crewe boss told the club’s official web-site: “Jordan has a year left on his contract at Orient and he is not our player, so we will have to see what happens. We cannot do anything until his future is resolved at Leyton Orient.
“I am sure that is something Jordan and his agent are on top of but until that is resolved then there is nothing we can do. We can only wait and see but Jordan knows how we feel about him. He has certainly helped us.”
