According to the Scottish Daily Record, Oxford United have had a £450,000 bid rejected by Motherwell for Chris Cadden. The youngster has attracted interest from Premier League clubs.
Oxford have had their £450,000 bid for the youngster rejected as Motherwell look to keep the 20-year-old at the club. However, reports by the Daily Record suggest that Oxford are prepared to put in a higher bid for the Scottish midfielder.
Caden has attracted interest from Premier League clubs with Brighton showing interest. While Championship sides such as Hull, Cardiff and Nottingham Forest have all been pursuing Cadden. Motherwell have so far held on to their man, but with ten hours left of the window will they be able to keep him?
It looks like The U’s start man Marvin Johnson is leaving for Middlesbrough, and Pep Clotet is trying to find a replacement with hours left of the window.
Earlier in the summer Hearts made a £300,000 bid for Cadden, however, that was rejected. But Motherwell may be forced to sell the youngster with so many bids being received surely it’s unsettling for the 20-year-old.
Cadden played 36 games last season, and he scored five goals for Motherwell. He has also represented the Scotland Under-21 side on two occasions
Oxford currently sit in League One seventh in League One. Pep Clotet’s side will be aiming for a play-off spot this year, and if they signed Cadden their promotion chances would only increase. But with so many teams trying to sign him can the U’s sign him before 11pm? Only time will tell.
