'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ferrie Will Not Be Coming Into Town

Steve Nicholson, from the Evening Telegraph, is reporting that we have dropped our interest in Swansea midfielder Ferrie Bodde because it is claimed the club have 'moved the goal-post' by increasing their asking price.

We've already had two bids rejected but with the believed to be 2m asking price reached or at least nearly reached with a package around that bracket being put forward, 1.5m up front plus add-ons, Derby chairman Adam Pearson says this valuation has now been raised with them asking 2.5m.

'The goal-posts have moved - the price has gone up and we are not prepared to pay it.

'This is not acceptable. We will not be held to ransom.

'We have formally withdrawn our offer and will watch the situation.

'It is disappointing because negotiations have been going on for a long time. We felt a deal could be done and the player has said he wants to come to Derby County.'

Pearson was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

26-year-old Bodde has expressed a desire to sign for Derby, but this might be out of his hands now with the offer withdrawn, it might not be the end of the matter just yet though? West Brom and Middlesbrough could however seize on this and see this as their chance to pounce?

Bodde wants to leave, if a fee of 2m was asked, then when this is reached the price goes up I think it is only fair that we pull out.

No-no-no-no... a) +/-£2M is our VALUATION for the player, not the asking fee (!) - see the difference? b) we don't want to sell the player so rejecting ANY offer is just ok - end of c) DCFC have never met our valuation for the player - the straight cash offer is to be believed around £1,5M + unknown amount in addon fees and that's NOT what we want

You might not want him to go, but he wants to go. Do you really want a player that doesn't want to play for you to stay? If 2m is the valuation why has this been raised to 2.5m when what is thought to be a bid close to it was made? When all is said an done NONE of us know the full story, as we aren't involved with either club behind closed doors are we.

With a few clubs showing an interest I wouldn't blame Swansea for upping their valuation.

They have to give 50% away thats probably why its being upped, although like I said no one knows whats really going on do they!

reply to Rammie your chairman was bull****ing because he said that Bodde was up North house hunting when he has been in Holland all the close season as his aunty is seriously ill now if Pearson wants him then pay us what he is worth after all there are Premiership clubs interested now otherwise sod off and leave him be under contract for a further 2 years and not up for sale
