'No bids for Haks' - Alexander speaks out amid Sunderland, Hull City, Barnsley and Crystal Palace interest


We reported yesterday that Hakeeb Adelakun had been catching the eye of a hatful of clubs, but Graham Alexander has confirmed that the Iron have received no bids as of yet for the promising youngster.

The Daily Mail reported that Sunderland are currently leading the race to land the Sky Bet EFL young player of the month for November.

But, Hull City, Barnsley and Crystal Palace are all tracking the situation closely, too.

Although he admits he is aware of interest, Alexander clarified the current situation in an interview with the Scunthorpe Telegraph: "We have had no bids for Hakeeb.

"I expect interest in a number of our players because we have got some real good young talent playing week in week out and winning games at a good level.

"I doubt it will be the last of the speculation about one of our players but we want to keep this good team together.

"But we understand the nature of the business and the food chain. We are not at the top of it – we are not Manchester City – and everyone has their price."

The Daily Mail report suggested United were holding out for a £1m fee, but Adelakun is out-of-contract with Scunthorpe in the summer.
