WARREN Byerley has turned down the chance to talk to an unnamed
club after Weymouth accepted an offer for his services.
The mystery bid was made yesterday but according to George
Rolls, who is set to return to the Terras as chairman, the
26-year-old is more than happy at the Bob Lucas Stadium.
He told Echosport: We accepted a bid for Warren yesterday
but I have spoken to him about it and he does not want to
leave, which is fine by us.
However, that does not appear to be the end of the matter
with rivals Dorchester Town also admitting they have an interest
in the striker.
Magpies chairman Shaun Hearn said: Warren has
been on our radar as hes a local lad and we have made
an enquiry about him but it is no secret we have been looking
for a centre-forward.
Clubs talk to one another all the time it is
just a case of seeing what is available.
When asked to comment further, Rolls added: The offer
we received is nothing to do with Dorchester and the enquiry
they made was ages ago when they had a caretaker-manager in
charge nothing is happening there.
Meanwhile, Byron Napper is currently holding talks with parent
club Crawley Town in regards to his future at Weymouth.
Terras boss Brendon King said: I believe Byrons
loan deal finishes on January 28, which means he is only available
for the next two games. I have had a conversation with him
and he was due to speak to Steve Evans at Crawley yesterday.
Obviously I would love to keep him but it is well document
that at present we do not have to pay anything for him except
his travelling expenses and that there are Conference clubs
interested in taking him as well.
I have spoken to the board about it and like everything
it will come down to finances.
Hopefully, I will know more on the matter over the
next couple of days.
One player that might end up replacing Napper is AFC Totton
asset James Coutts, who is available should the Terras want
to loan him for a second month.
King added: Totton have said we can have James but
again it will all depend on finances. Now we are out of the
FA Trophy we may have to pull in the purse strings a little
