New Bid Could Tempt Fleetwood

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.

Preview: Crewe vs Bolton XI

Well if this isn't a bit weird: I'm writing a preview for a Bolton match for Vital Crewe, having edited Vital Bolton for 18 months.

Anyway, I'm back and I'd like to start off by thanking Ross for his sterling work in the last few weeks while I've been away. He's run the site on his own and I think he's done a great job. Or at least I say he has...

Disappointingly, Bolton will not be bringing their first team as promised as they've opted to switch their reserve and first team fixtur
