Sheffield United Akinbiyi bid rejected

Last updated : 21 January 2005 By Rob Stanway
Chairman Gunnar Gislason told BBC Radio Stoke: "Contrary to speculation, no-one else has bid for our top goalscorer.

"But every player has his price, and if we receive a bid that we feel is good for the club, we would sell him."

However Ade Akinibyi wrote in his online diary yesterday: "Two clubs, Sheffield United and Wigan have both placed bids for me this week directly to the club and this has been confirmed to me by the legal agent acting on my behalf".
