MK Dons reject bid for Scott Fraser – Russell Martin
MK Dons boss Russell Martin has said that his side have rejected a bid for in-demand attacker Scott Fraser – both Hull City and Wigan Athletic have been linked.
Fraser, 26, could yet be on the move this summer after MK Dons boss Martin revealed that his side had rejected a bid for the Scot, but didn’t rule out a potential sale before the start of the new season.
Hull City have been strongly linked with Fraser who scored 14 goals in 44 League One outings last season, with Wigan Athletic also credited with an interest (Sun on Sunday, 06.06.21) as their summer overhaul continues.
Now though, speaking to MK Citizen after his side’s pre-season win over King’s Lynn earlier in the week, Martin said of Fraser’s situation:
“We’ve rejected a bid, a good bid but discussions are ongoing and I didn’t think it was right to include him tonight. There has been a lot of discussion about his future over the summer.
“He’s come back and trained and is in great condition, but then it’s come to light about this interest. People have eight weeks to get business done, but then wait to do it two weeks into pre-season.
“But that’s all I can tell you really – we’ll wait to see how that works out.”
Martin and MK Dons look as though they could be dark horses in League One next season but should they lose Fraser, they’ll need to bring in a replacement fast.
He was the heartbeat of heir side last time round and it’s unsurprising to see so much interest mounting in him.
Martin’s above comments though suggest that Dons would be interested in selling up if the money is right – how much it’ll take remains to be seen though.
