An initial bid of £15million was made and Tony Pulise moved quickly to show his frustration of the bid becoming public.
Interestingly enough I am surprised that the WBA gaffer bothered to make such comments.
In football no one has the opportunity to keep a player in this day and age. There is unlikely a team in the any top division in their country's league that has not managed to a force a transfer for a player they want.
It is a common thing in the modern world of football.
What I expect to see happen next is for WBA reject the bid in hope of a bid inexcess of £20million (if suggested reports are anything to go by).
