New Bid Could Tempt Fleetwood

Crewe and Forest Green Rovers look to have saved negotiations for striker Stuart Fleetwood. The clubs were in contact with each other on Tuesday and the Alex decided to improve their offer for the 21 year old.

Holland now hopes a deal can be struck for Fleetwood, who has 26 goals so far this season for the Blue Square Premier side. The Alex look have added on a lot of appearance related money to the 175,000 offer and could be enough to tempt Rovers, who have previously said they want no less than 250,000 for Fleetwood.

Fleetwood's agent meanwhile says that Fleetwood would be interested in talking to a League One club after two weeks on speculation. The former Cardiff man has been subject of bids from Cheltenham and Gillingham already, whilst Charlton Athletic and super-rich QPR are also said to be interested.

Steve Holland first placed a bid for Fleetwood 10 days ago but was frustrated when Forest Green failed to return a verdict, only getting back in touch with the Alex yesterday.

Meanwhile, Crewe have confirmed they expect an answer on their bid for another striker today. A "fair and excellent" bid was made for an unnamed player on Monday evening and is still being considered by the player's club. The striker in question is reported to be Andy Bishop of Bury, who scored the winner in a 2-1 win over Norwich in the FA Cup last night.
