Derby Still In The Hunt For Bodde

Derby County chairman Adam Pearson has insisted he has not give up on securing Dutchman Ferrie Bodde despite a 500,000 bid being rejected by Swansea City.

Pearson is no stranger to controversy over transfer fees after putting slapping a 500,000 price tag on Darryl Duffy last summer. 250,000 was also added onto the bid by the Pride Park club should Derby secure promotion to the Premier leauge.

Yesterday Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins laughed off the bid from the Rams and warded off any future bids by declaring the player is not for sale.

Should Swansea sell one of the clubs most prized players it would be at a hugely significant profit for a player signed for just 85,000, 12 months ago. In that time Bodde has made 34 appearances for the club this season and has scored 8 goals in all competitions and was part of the PFA's league one team of the year.

Pearson told the Derbyshire Telegraph:

'"We will continue to monitor the situation.Bodde is a player the manager admires strongly and is a player we have been watching for some time. We do not consider our offer to be laughable."



Existing Season Ticket holders have up until the 14th June to secure their seats for next season.

If they don't consider 750,000 laughable then i fear there may be a big difference between both sides valuation!
