Bristol City Rejected

Not Going To Bristol City
The Club have confirmed that Bristol City have made offers for star striker Jamie Hayter. Speaking to the Bournemouth Evening Echo, chairman Peter Phillips is quoted as saying: "It is true we have received an offer from Bristol City, but far from holding out for six figures, the offer was well into six figures. I'm not prepared to divulge the figure, but I can confirm that we turned it down. They then came back with a slightly improved bid, but we turned that down as well. Their two bids were wholly inadequate, and, frankly, I'll be perfectly happy if they now decide to look elsewhere. We don't want to sell James and if we do lose him in the transfer window, he certainly won't be going anywhere on the cheap. We certainly wouldn't entertain selling him for what Bristol City offered and if they are interested, they will have to think again. He's been our top goalscorer for four years, he's a class act and we're not going to give him away".
