According to the Express, George Edmundson has turned down a new contract with Oldham Athletic.
The report refers to the fact that, earlier this week, the Gers made a bid for the young full-back but that it was rebuffed by the League Two side as they wanted more money.
They’ve perhaps sought to jack up his price with a new contract, then, but the young defender appears to be playing hardball with the Latics.
This could come as a boost to us and it should encourage us to return with a fresh bid as, if he isn’t going to sign a deal there, they would be best off letting him go as soon as.
Of course, teams want to get value for money and with us clearly a keen party it would make sense to get around the negotiating table and see if we can thrash out a deal for the player.
