Boss happy to see owner reject big money offers for Didz and Tyrone
Blues rejected a bid from Leicester for David McGoldrick that would have made the striker the second biggest sale in the Club’s history while Crystal Palace were also knocked back with a big offer for Tyrone Mings.
McGoldrick and Mings: Premier League interest
“The transfer window passed with a whimper didn't it after it looked like it could be a busy day,” the Town boss told the Club website.
“I thought Didz might be on his way to Leicester. I said that on Saturday but Marcus [Evans, Club owner] didn’t ever want it to happen. He turned down a substantial amount of money and the deal fell through.
“Obviously I’m delighted that Didz is staying. I’ve got a player that I thought I might be without so it’s a good ‘signing’ for us in the window!”
Mick also confirmed that Palace had a substantial bid rejected by the Club for Tyrone.
“I spoke to Neil Warnock [Palace manager]. He asked about Tyrone and I told him what a good player he is and that I didn’t want to lose him,” explained the boss.
“That didn’t deter their interest. It often doesn’t in football and they made a substantial bid for him. Marcus deals with the finances and he didn’t want to lose him either so he’s still with us and I’m delighted with that because he’s a good player.”
