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.

How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
