We've Been Prodded - Mitchell

Last updated : 12 January 2010 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

With the January transfer window in full swing, Eddie Mitchell has revealed that the Club has been approached about possible transfer targets, but admits that no serious offer has been received.

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Mitchell is quoted as saying: "I don’t want to name numbers or players, but we’ve definitely had interest. As yet, nothing has been backed up with serious bids. We’ve been prodded. No one has come in and said ‘here’s the cash’ for someone. Until someone does, it’s hard to give facts, but there’s been interest. I’ve sat down with Eddie Howe and talked about it. The window is open for quite a bit longer and we’ll wait and see what happens. We want to progress and stay in the league position we are in. I’d not want to sell the people who have got us there. People will think they can get a bargain, but they won’t get a bargain. They’ll pay what the players are worth if they are interested in them. We haven’t got a ‘For Sale’ sign up. It’s like anything, if a tempting offer came in, it would have to be considered. It would be a joint discussion between Eddie Howe and myself, after it has been run past the board".

In recent weeks, there has been speculation linking Brett Pitman with a clutch of Championship clubs, plus possible moves for the likes of Jason Pearce, Liam Feeney and Anton Robinson.
