Target Mayor at Portman Road
Thursday, 27th Jun 2019 16:23
TWTD understands Bury winger Danny Mayor was at Portman Road earlier this afternoon with the Blues as the 28-year-old free agent weighs up the various clubs interested in signing him this summer.
Mayor, whose Bury contract is up at the weekend, is understood to be checking out his various options having travelled to Plymouth yesterday to look around the League Two club, who are managed by his former Shakers boss Ryan Lowe.
As TWTD revealed this morning, Mayor is interesting Town with talks about about a move to Portman Road having taken place and he paid the club a visit this afternoon, although the wideman has now left and appears to be continuing to assess his alternatives with a deal not believed to be close to being done at this stage.
Argyle boss Lowe has confirmed his club has offered terms to Mayor and that he was at Home Park yesterday.
Lowe says he’s aware the Pilgrims are one of several interested parties and expects Mayor to make a decision on his future soon. Mayor’s former loan side Tranmere are believed to be among the other interested parties.
Lowe told Plymouth Live: “We have tabled an offer, he knows what it looks like. He has been very open and transparent with us, because he can and he always is.
“He’s obviously speaking to other clubs, which again is fine. We will respect whatever decision Dan makes.
“For us, he’s someone that has been on our radar since the minute I got the job, so we will just have to see how that pans out.”
Meanwhile, Millwall have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Frank Fielding from Bristol City.
However, that may not necessarily mark an end to the Lions’ interest in Town’s Bartosz Bialkowski with manager Neil Harris understood to be after two keepers this summer having lost three at the end of last season.
Earlier in the week, Town pulled out of Bialkowski’s £1 million switch to Millwall after the South Londoners sought to renegotiate the deal due to concerns regarding his knee which emerged during his medical.

Know nothing about the lad, but I trust Lamberts judgement. Low risk on a free too. Lets see how this turns out then

Let's get this done!
|rickw added 16:50 - Jun 27|
We've got to be a more impressive club who'll offer better wages and have more ambition than Plymouth and Tranmere, just hope it's enough to convince him not to play for his old manager or a club close to home.

Lovely afternoon in Suffolk, should make the decision easier!
|Nazemariner added 17:00 - Jun 27|
Announcement tonight then.
|BaddowBlue1 added 17:01 - Jun 27|
At 28 this will be his "payday" contract and the length of the contract as well as the money will be important to him with a young family. Plymouth with his previous manager have tabled an offer so the ball is in our court, hopefully Lambert will have impressed him. Fingers crossed!
|burwellian added 17:11 - Jun 27|
So what's more important to him?
Staying in the NW and not uprooting family? Tranmere.
Dropping down to work with a manager you know and work with well? Plymouth
Ambition to play at a higher level? Seems to be us...
Big decision fella, big decision... Hopefully his short spell at Southend gave a positive impression of the region too.

Derby County needs a new Mayor I'm. Sure
|BlueandTruesince82 added 17:16 - Jun 27|
Tough one because he has a choice of Plymouth where he works with a manager he knows but has drop back to L2, Tranmere a club he knows close to home or us where he will get the most money.
Tranmere probably offers the best balance for wage and home life
|ArnieM added 17:31 - Jun 27|
Fingers crossed then !!!

Pretty certain PL and Co & players would have impressed and extolled the virtues of Suffolk and the people ( Numbskulls apart !)
|jollyroger added 18:56 - Jun 27|
If he arrived this afternoon and has gone already me thinks it didn't go to well , hope I'm totally wrong as he is just the sort of player we need
|andygizmo added 19:07 - Jun 27|
If we are relying on Southend to give a positive view of the area we stand no chance. It's like a war zone there.
|runningout added 19:15 - Jun 27|
We don’t stand anymore of a chance of signings than all league 1 teams. Some of you need to wake up
|whosroundisitanyway added 19:21 - Jun 27|
He's every fking where
Danny Mayor, Danny Mayor
|midastouch added 19:58 - Jun 27|
I sincerely hope they managed to show him the training facilities.
|Saxonblue74 added 20:02 - Jun 27|
Runningout......Norwood? What are you talking about??!!
|Steelmonkey added 20:29 - Jun 27|
Suffolkboy depends upon whether he plays hoofball or likes his football on the ground and entertain his public surely.
|Girthyguy added 21:12 - Jun 27|
He's 28. Never played for a big club. This is surely his last chance. It's a no brainer if you ask me. Join Ipswich.
|blueheartXT added 22:11 - Jun 27|
That depends if he looks at the history
It was only two years ago players where boed before they’d even kicked a ball
Be careful what you wish for numbskulls
|Len_Brennan added 22:12 - Jun 27|
I expected Fielding to leave Bristol City, but Millwall ...
|Dozzells_Bobblehat added 22:29 - Jun 27|
Reading some comments from Bury fans on twitter stating that he suffers with home sickness. If so ,Tranmere may be favourites .
Looks half decent so hopefully not.
|ArnieM added 22:35 - Jun 27|
I think he’ll sign for Tranmere tbh . It’s on his home patch and he doesn’t sound like he wants to uproot his family. I’ll be surprised if he signs for us.
