Bignot - Omar Is Not For Sale

12 January 2017

Grimsby Town boss Marcus Bignot has insisted top scorer Omar Bogle is not for sale, despite receiving official offers for the striker. 

At his press conference today, manager Bignot told Mariners Player that the club had received two offers for Bogle this week. 

But Bignot is keen to keep the centre-forward, who has scored 18 league goals already this term, at Blundell Park.

He said: “He’s not for sale but it doesn’t stop football clubs putting offers in.”

The club rejected the first offer before responding that the striker is not for sale to the second.

But there have been two outgoings at the club today.

Young wingers Rhys Browne and Max Wright have joined Macclesfield Town and Sutton Coldfield Town on loan deals, respectively.

Browne has joined the Silkmen on loan until the end of the season, while Wright has moved to the Royals on an initial one month-long loan.

Bignot expressed his happiness that Browne has finally got his loan deal. 

He said: “We’re delighted with that because it gets him playing. It’s closer to home so I know he can make that trip when he feels it as well, so delighted for him.”

The gaffer also believes Wright will improve due to first team action every weekend.

“Delighted for young Max because it will help in his development, and certainly that’s the way we want to go,” he said.
