City Prepare For Another Maynard Bid

Bristol City are now preparing themselves for yet another bid for Nicky Maynard, this time the offer is going to be around the 4million mark and will be coming in from Nottingham Forest.

New Forest manager Steve McLaren is looking to get Forest back into the top flight but to do that he will need to give his attacking options a boost, Maynard is reported to be at the top of his shopping list.

An offer of around 2.5 million from Leicester was turned down earlier in the week and they are rumoured to be facing competition from West Ham who are also looking for more firepower.

Maynard has scored 37 goals for City since joining from Crewe Alexandra for 2.25 million in July 2008 and not surprisingly, manager Keith Millen would sooner he stayed at the club, he will be holding talks with the striker when he returns from his summer break with a view to getting him to extend his current deal.

Millen told the Bristol Evening Post: 'I'm glad the new board are staying strong and I've said before I don't want to lose Nicky.

'Nicky is part of the team and squad I want to build for next season.

'The speculation has certainly heated up, but he's back from holiday next week and I'll be looking to speak with him. Our stance is we still want him to sign a new contract, the board are strong and sticking to that.'

It would be unthinkable to sell Maynard, if the club do then they have no abition to get into the top flight, we aint going to have a striker thats as good as him at the club for many years and all the stops should be pulled out to keep him

When you have a high calibre player in your team he is bound to attract attention,we all know that,we have had NM with us for 3 years,he's been a prolific goalscorer,a serious injury has been dealt with and he's back to his level best.. We know this player,he likes it here,we know his value as a player and qualities and his contribution to our team Our owner,our chairman,our manager and our player and his agent will decide the outcome of his future with Bristol City FC and in consultation with it's fanbase,no one else. All interested parties can waffle but BCFC will decide and at the moment the answer is NO SALE until an unbeatable offer comes in and we might consider it.. He is under contract for 1 more year to Bristol City FC and make no mistake WE ALL WANT NICKY TO STAY...

Frankly, I want this sorted out as soon as possible, so we should offer him a better contract with a large release clause requiring an answer within two weeks. If he doesn't sign then put him up for sale with the price starting at 4M.
