Donaldson Begins Talks With Other Clubs

Donaldson Begins Talks With Other Clubs

Clayton Donaldson has spoken to Bradford City over a possible move whilst Carlisle, Chesterfield and Oxford are all interested in the Alex's top goalscorer.

New Bradford City manager Peter Jackson confirmed today that he spoke to Donaldson on Tuesday about a move to Valley Parade but admitted they faced a fight for his signature, suggesting 'eight or nine' clubs have expressed an interest.

A few clubs we already know are interested include fellow League Two rivals Oxford United and Gillingham. Oxford's chairman has recently said they'd like Donaldson in yellow whilst Gills boss Andy Hessenthaler almost admitted defeat in his pursuit.

Strong rumours also suggest that League One interest comes in the form of Chesterfield, who look set to lose their star striker Craig Davies this summer, as well as Carlisle United, though neither has given an official response to the rumours.

Coventry though have denied interest in Donaldson despite rumours of Championship interest persisting.

The Alex's offer of an extended stay at Gresty Road, which would see Donaldson scoop a percentage of a future transfer fee he commands, remains on the table.
