Bradford City have officially submitted a bid for AFC Wimbledon midfielder Jake Reeves, according to Dons boss Neil Ardley.
Get Surrey has reported that even though the Bantams have put in a bid, the AFC Wimbledon manager remains ensure whether or not it will be sufficient enough to trigger any clauses in Reeves’ contract.
The original bid is believed to be somewhere in the region of £150,000, but speaking about the matter, Ardley said: “I do know whether they have put in an offer but whether it matches certain agreements that have been made with Jake and his agent, I don’t know.”
Jake Reeves is a highly rated midfielder, who spent time in the youth academy at Tottenham Hotspur, before moving to Sky Bet Championship side Brentford.
The 24-year-old joined AFC Wimbledon in 2015, and has gone on to play over 100 times for the London club.
And because of this, he has become a bit of a fan favourite, and Dons manager Neil Ardley is desperate to keep hold of him, but knows that it may not be possible.
“I’m keen to keep hold of my best players but it isn’t as easy as that sometimes when you get players to sign new deals and extend deals and you can’t pay them what they want, you have to give a little bit here or there,” Ardley said, as quoted by Get Surrey.
“You have to stick by your word and stick by things that are in contracts and sometimes that might be what moves the player on in the end, not the fact that you don’t want to keep him.”
