Millen: 'We won't be held to ransom'

Millen: 'We won't be held to ransom'

Keith Millen says Bristol City will not be paying out stupid prices to get new faces into the squad in January.

The City boss is more likely to wait until the summer to add to his ailing team.

Earlier this week, Millen let it be known that City have pulled out of a possible transfer because of the extortionate price the club was asking for the player.

"We're being quoted silly prices and we won't be held to ransom," said Millen.

"We know the true valuation of the targets we are after and we will not be forced into paying the silly prices that are going about.

"That is our policy and we are sticking to it, even if that means we will have to wait until the summer.

"Club's don't want to lose their best players in January and, therefore, prices tend to be a lot higher.

"I only have so much money available to spend in the transfer window and I have to be careful with it.

"We have had a couple of bids out there for a while now but the prices they expect us to pay are unrealistic. It may be that because they see we have a wealthy chairman and some big-name players who are on good money, they think they can raise the price and we will still pay up. That is not the case."

Video - Leeds 2-1 Bristol City

Bristol City's three game unbeaten run - a Milan Djuric goal in added time was too little too late - at Leeds didn't prove too costly as we remain three points above the bottom three.

Newcastle's draw wasn't costly as Brighton also failed to win. Wigan's win boosted survival chances but they remain in the bottom three with Blackburn and Rotherham.
