Showunmi going nowhere, says Parry


Tranmere Rovers manager Les Parry insists that last season's top scorer Enoch Showunmi is not for sale after revealed he'd turned down three bids for the forward.

Showunmi scored 11 goals in Npower League One last season as Rovers steered clear of the relegation zone in Parry's first full season as manager at Prenton Park.

The 29-year-old made his first appearance of the season in Tuesday's Carling Cup defeat to Doncaster Rovers, and Parry says news surrounding his future won't affect his form.

"Enoch came through well and showed a little bit of hunger," he said.

"It has been on Sky and the BBC that Notts County have made an offer for him that has been rejected and we'll keep on rejecting them as well if they put any more in.


"He knows about the offer but I know the type of player he is and the type of person he is and I knew it wouldn't affect him and that he'd still go about his work. That's why I put him on.

"The Chairman said to me 'We've received this offer', I think it went something like £75,000, £100,000, £125,000 - three offers - and I just said 'no, no, no', and that was it. He's not going anywhere.

"Enoch for us last season was a massive player and once we get him going he'll be another massive player."

Parry's side made an excellent start to their Npower League One campaign on the opening weekend of the season as they overcame newly promoted Chesterfield, as Robbie Weir scored his first goal for the club.
