Cobblers bid for Burton star

Published Add your comment

Burton have received an offer for Shaun Harrad from Boxing Day opponents Northampton.

The 26-year-old striker, Albion`s leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions this season, is out of contract in the summer.

Talks over a new deal have stalled recently but Burton remain hopeful that they can persuade Harrad to stay.

"Northampton did make a bid, yes - and we have passed it on to Shaun's agent," Albion chairman Ben Robinson told the Derby Telegraph.

"We've been in discussions for some time about a new contract.

"I think Shaun wants to play at a higher level, which you can understand - but the manager (Paul Peschisolido) would prefer him to stay."
