As I said in my earlier posting, regarding Gary Hooper and his supposed request to move away, that we cannot always believe what we read in the national media. It is very good to read that Neil Adams has moved quickly to deny and stem any further rumours snowballing. Box Ticked
“There’s been no transfer request from Gary Hooper,” confirmed Adams. “I spoke to him two days ago and told him he’s one of the players we need to keep. He can score goals, Gary Hooper can. He will be a big part of the squad, along with many, many others.
“So I understand – there’s bound to be this sort of speculation and rumour, and somebody can make a throwaway comment that suddenly becomes national news.
“But Gary Hooper has not handed in a transfer request and I’ve told him I need him here to hopefully be part of pushing this team back into the Premier League, and he was happy with that.”
