Sunderland and Huddersfield Town have both had fresh bids for AFC Wimbledon youngster Jack Rudoni rejected, says per London News Online.
Rudoni, 21, has become the target of a number of Championship clubs this summer following his impressive season in League One last time round.
Despite his side’s eventual relegation into League Two, Rudoni scored 12 goals and assisted five more from midfield.
And The Sun revealed earlier this month that Bristol City, Huddersfield Town and Sunderland had all seen seven-figure bids for Rudoni rejected.
The Daily Mail then revealed that both Huddersfield and Sunderland were set to continue their pursuit of Rudoni, with London News Online now revealing that the Championship duo have had fresh bids turned down.
London News Online’s report says that the bids were made at the end of last week, and that four clubs in total have made bids for Rudoni but that AFC Wimbledon’s valuation of the Englishman is yet to be met.
Race heating up…
Bristol City could of course be one of the four clubs to have tabled bids for Rudoni, but who the other might be remains to be seen.
It seems likely to be a Championship side given the amount of Championship interest being shown in Rudoni, but it’s clear that Sunderland and Huddersfield seem to be the most keen on signing the AFC Wimbledon man this summer.
And he’s obviously a talent. But with the bids having already surpassed the £1million mark, and with Wimbledon continuing to knock back the offers, the likes of Sunderland and Huddersfield could quickly lose interest and Wimbledon could quickly lose out on a lot of money.
What their valuation of the player is remains to be seen but expect to see some more news on this transfer rumour in the coming weeks.
