Partial Lifting Of Transfer Embargo ..... Does Bond Have A Budget?

Last updated : 18 July 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
With progress being made on the Administration front, it is leaving Kevin Bond pondering what transfer funds he might have available to him.

Speaking to the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Bond is quoted as saying: "It's a step in the right direction and positive that I am able to sign players. Bearing in mind there is a limit to how much you can spend on your playing budget, I need to clarify a couple of things. Firstly, I need to know precisely where I am with my playing budget and what it encompasses. I also need to know what, if any, I've got to lever with beyond it. A ballpark figure had been indicated to me a month ago but I don't want to disclose what that figure was. I am not in any way, shape or form a pessimist nor am I being critical of anybody. I would like to think I'm a realist and can't afford to allow myself to get carried away with being overly optimistic. I have to be realistic and so does everybody else".
