Dundee United Boss Would Rebuff Town Bid
Dundee United Boss Would Rebuff Town Bid
Monday, 10th Aug 2009 18:17

Dundee United manager Craig Levein says his club would turn down a bid from Town for midfielder Morgaro Gomis if one was made. The Blues have been widely reported to be ready to offer £800,000 for the Senegalese international.

Levein said: "I don't even know if Ipswich are going to make a bid, but that sort of figure will just be knocked back.

"Ipswich haven't made a bid for Morgaro. It's not something as the manager I would welcome. I do understand that if your players are playing well then there are other teams who would be interested in them.

"I also tell the players to use Dundee United as a springboard to go on to bigger and better things.

"What I'm annoyed about, looking at the figure mentioned in the papers, is that £800,000 is nowhere near the value we place on Morgaro Gomis."

Earlier today, Town manager Roy Keane was quoted as saying that the Blues would not be making any more purchases during the transfer window.

samassiabou - you idiot....!

Who is this Gomis guy?! Must be half decent for that sort of money in a Scottish league, but a midfielder?? We need a another striker surely if any other signings.

samassiabou, cant believe you want keane out after just 1 game! ur not a loyal suppoter then are you! GET BEHIND THE TEAM AND KEANE AND STOP MOANING!

i agree with keane we have a good squad, but a centre half needs a kick up the back side for his part in the coventry goals. we dont need more players that are no better than we have already, all it will do is limit the chances of our young players. personally i still think we could do with trimming the squad further still

samasssiabou I hope the comment is tongue in cheek if not your a rather large dick

samassiabou doesn't sound sarcastic to me! I think Keane should be happy with his squad, it is very good, on Sunday we showed that we have the potential to go up, it was lack of concentration and poor decisions that led to that loss! The only player that I want brought it in is Gio, and we know that it is unlikely (but could happen, fingers crossed!!) otherwise maybe let a few go, but otherwise very confident about thge season
Come on you Blues!!!

samassiabou you retard! stop wasting everyone's time! There are places you can go where you can post rubbish - this is not one of those places!

I agree with Jamie22, in as much as Gio is the player we need in and I am also fairly confident about this season. However, I am not so sure about our defence though. Delaney has not impressed me at all in the two games I have watched him. He looks slow (did you see the Coventry lad lierally walk round him - turning circle of a tanker), lack lustre and even though eh got forward fairly well his crosses were mediocre. I don't want to knock a new player but if we are serious about going up we really need to take a long hard look at our defence!

whos samassiabou ?? and what did he put/say ?? I cant see anything that he put ??

I agree with bedsitfc - we don't need players who are about as good as we have (and this Gomis fella seems to be such) when we have some good youth prospects pushing for places. Wouldn't mind if we were finished in the transfer market 'til January.

That is unless a certain little Mexican misses the Suffolk sunshine........
