With us reporting yesterday that the interest shown by Luton Town, in Shane Blackett, was at the speculative stage, we can today report that Brentford have ruled themselves out of the race for the Posh defender.
It transpires that Posh want a fee for the ex-Dagenham and Redbridge man and in the current economic climate Brentford are not in a position to pay one with their manager, Andy Scott, remarking to the local media, in this case the Ealing Gazette,
‘I’ve spoken to Shane’s agent, not just about Shane but also other players on his books, before the season finished.’
‘But Peterborough want a fee for him and I’m not in a position to pay one. With the budget in mind, I’ve got more pressing positions to fill.’
‘Darren Ferguson knows I’m interested in Shane, but that’s as far as it goes unless the situation changes.’
If promoted Brentford can`t afford a fee who can?
