The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

CREWE boss Steve Davis says New­cas­tle’s hon­esty al­lowed want-away young­ster Brad­den In­man to com­plete his move to the Rail­way­men.

The cen­tral-mid­fielder, who has been capped by Scot­land U21s, had a suc­cess­ful loan spell at the Alexan­dra Sta­dium last sea­son – find­ing the net five times in 21 ap­pear­ances in the league.

In­man was al­ways keen for the deal to go through, hav­ing re­jected a new deal from the Mag­pies this sum­mer.

“New­cas­tle have been good about things,” said Davis. “We have both been up front and hon­est.

“They re­jected a num­ber of our bids, which they are fully en­ti­tled to do, but we got there in the end.”

The trans­fer had stalled as the clubs failed to agree a fee and there were fears it would have to be set­tled via a tri­bunal, but Davis is happy with the fi­nal terms.

“We have got him for the right fee and there is a sel­lon for New­cas­tle as well, which is only right be­cause if he be­comes the player we think he will then they have helped with his de­vel­op­ment as well,” he added.
