Boro Join Bidding War For Mills

Doncaster Rovers Chairman John Ryan may have his much dreamed of bidding war for star defender Matthew Mills afterall.

Forest were the only club with a confirmed bid in for the 23 year old Centre Half and were in the box seat to sign him for a tidy 1.5m. Donny Chairman John Ryan had until now been praying for a public auction for his most prized asset, but other than the Reds', no one had joined in. That was until today, when relegated Boro eclipsed our bid.

The question now, is whether NFFC will up the anti and match the offer on the table from The Smoggies.

Forest are desperate for a new centre half, preferably two. Losing out on Mills would be a blow to the fans and the club, as he is without doubt one of the best in the Championship. He's worth more than our 1.5m bid as well and will be worth a hell of alot more with another good Championship season under him next term. With this in mind, it might be an idea to up our offer and get the deal done.

At this moment in time, the Reds'are still in for Barker at Blackpool and Mills, but both deals hang in the balance and could go either way. Although Danny Hone at Lincoln is being talked about, he would be seen very much as a plan 'B' and very much as a second best.
