No Hoops bid for Cox

Published Add your comment

Swindon chairman Andrew Fitton has revealed the League One club have not received an offer from Celtic for striker Simon Cox.

The Hoops have been linked with the 32-goal marksman but Fitton, despite confessing to have received three bids for Cox, says that the Scottish Premier League runners-up have not made a written enquiry.

He told the Swindon Advertiser: "There have been lots of people phoning and asking about Simon but written offers are the only ones that actually matter. And there have been three bids in total - one of which was from Leicester. Contrary to popular belief, we never received anything in writing from Celtic."

Fitton added: "As I've said many times before, all this is about is whether it is the right time for the club and the player. For example, if a bid from a League One club came in then he's going nowhere, but you would have to consider one from a smaller Premier League side where he's going to play all the time.

"Believe me though, Simon Cox will not be going to a League One club, because I won't let him."
