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