“Whilst Hallam hasn’t asked for a transfer, he still knows he’s part of our club.

“Until we were in a position that we received a bid that was fitting – and that goes for every player, not just Hallam – we will make sure he is 100 per cent focused on returning to us in pre-season.

“I like him as a person, as a man, and we feel he can contribute – but every player does have their value.

“I’ll do everything in my power to look after this football club.”
