TOON ACTED WELL OVER INMAN MOVE SAY CREWE
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.
