Taylor: Bournemouth Bid For Jackson? That's News to Me
Tuesday, 8th Sep 2020 23:24
Blues assistant boss Stuart Taylor says he knows nothing about a reported AFC Bournemouth bid for striker Kayden Jackson.
The Cherries were said to have made an offer reported variously as either £1 million or £2 million, but Taylor, speaking after the 2-1 EFL Trophy defeat to Arsenal’s U21s, was surprised to be asked about such a link.
“Alright, OK, I have absolutely no idea about it, I’ve never heard that before,” he said.
Asked whether that meant there was nothing in the story, he added: “Not that I’m aware of, that’s news to me.”
Jackson, 26, has yet to feature for Town this season but Taylor says last season’s 11-goal joint-top scorer is on his way back.
“Kayden had a tight groin a couple of weeks ago just before the Cambridge game,” he said.
"He had a little tweak, it was a grade one, and he’s still coming back from that.
"He’s on his rehab. He was running yesterday and I’m quite sure he’ll be doing some more running tomorrow when the lads are back in.
" He was in with the physio department today, so it’ll just be a case of progressing him back to get him back in training with the rest of the lads.”
Taylor says Jackson, who has been the subject of plenty of links with Championship clubs this summer, is very much in Town’s plans:

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
