Bidding Hotting Up For Anderson
Barnsley's Anderson Da Silva is a wanted man - in Bristol. The Robins have made a second bid for the Brazilian midfielder after their initial one was turned down by Barnsley.
Barnsley manager Simon Davey has waved away an improved offer for the talented midfielder in an effort to keep one of his best players at the club.
Speaking to the club's official website, Davey re-iterated that the club have valued the player and will not accept offers that do not meet the valuation: 'Bristol City came in with a bid and we rejected it and then they came in with an improved offer, but that bid was not accepted either.'
Davey did however hint that Anderson may still yet leave, with the comment: 'every player has his price.'
Bristol City are in the hunt for quality players in their efforts to launch an improved assault on the Championship this time around after a disappointing 2008/09 campaign. They would have a very good midfielder on their hands should they capture Anderson and it comes as no surprise that his talent has been noticed.
