Robbo Set For A Move Up t'North

Last updated : 31 July 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Having rejected an initial approach from Huddersfield Town, it seems that the Yorkshire side returned with an improved offer for the Cherries midfielder, which allowed Eddie Mitchell to permit the Terriers to speak with Robinson to discuss personal terms.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Eddie Mitchell is quoted as saying: "We don’t want Anton to go and it is a very awkward situation. We had a better offer from Huddersfield, but it is difficult because he is a key member of our squad. However, we are in a situation where, in six months’ time, he could talk to other clubs and could leave for nothing in the summer. The ball is in Huddersfield’s court and we are waiting to hear back from them. The offer is pretty much there but we have gone back with a small counter. Personal terms haven’t been sorted so it’s far from a done deal, but things are moving that way. I don’t want to lose him, but that is the situation we are in. We have to build a side that is committed to playing for Bournemouth and if Anton is not prepared to commit for another year and someone is interested in him, then we have to give him the chance to speak to them. As far as we are aware, at this moment in time, Anton hasn’t made any decision himself".
