Sean McConville is ready to take a deal with County after turning down Accrington’s latest contract offer.

McConville, 22, was subject to a bid from The Hatters yesterday which Accrington labelled ‘derisory.’

But they did admit that the midfielder, who had a trial at SCFC under Jim Gannon, was out of contract at Stanley.

“We have had a bid but we have rejected it. It was derisory, miles short of our valuation. But Sean is out of contract so we`ll have to see what happens.”

And we are now told that McConville is prepared to sign on a contract doubling his wage at Edgeley Park, and new manager Didi Hamann is hopeful of revealing the player tomorrow (Friday.)

    Stockport County have increased the bid for Ryan Lowe for the third time, this time to £100,000.

    We have made an improved offer to Halifax Town for Jamie Vardy, and we are hoping that a deal to sign Sean McConville can be completed by the weekend.

  • Hang on, hang on…. anyone else getting a little bit jumpy about all this? Is this the Pilks money or is it new cash? If our owners are…umm…. not 100% Kosher this how clubs crash and burn. Hope I am being an old woman here!

  • @Kid Charlemagne : I am. If it was Pilks money, with £300k and in need of 10 players why aren’t we spending more wisely. Doubling players wages too, isn’t this the team that offer Jordan Rose a 40% pay cut to his current wage. I understand we have a new chairman but I’m not sure what the thinks Stockport County is. We struggle for profits and here is this guy splashing £300k that the club would need to survive. What if this chairman leaves after 6 weeks because of progres/money then what?

  • Not to mention he is only dipping into the Pilks funding at the moment. Everything his own remains his own.

  • I have also been told it is his own money(well consortium) not Pilks money so if true I take my hat off too them they are puuting there money where there mouth is.

  • County fans more than most have reason to be skeptical. I really want these new lot to succeed (and to come out of the shadows) but if it looks too good to be true…

  • … forgot to add. It is precisely at times like this that a Plan B is needed. If we end up with a nightmare situation and go pop, has the Trust…er… the Coop or in fact ANY group of fans made any progress with the formation of Heaton Norris Rovers (or whatever). Just in case. We can all look back a laugh at our worries in 12 months time if Mr Evans and his ‘in-the-shadows’ mates lead the club into a better position BUT what if it all goes t*ts this time?

  • KC IF it ‘goes t*ts’ this time you feel it really will be the end. Don’t really know what the Coop are planning. Must find out. I just hope it turns out to be a case of LCLE (Love County Love Evans).
