PLYMOUTH claim three bids are on the table for Bradley Wright-Phillips but only one matches the club’s valuation of the striker.

Wright-Phillips was poised to join Reading last week only for the Championship club to pull the plug due to concerns over a knee problem. Blackpool had previously registered their interest in Wright-Phillips and Ian Holloway has confirmed he is considering another approach.

Rangers have also been linked with the forward, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Plymouth’s football consultant Peter Ridsdale said: “There are three clubs who have made bids since last Tuesday. One of them meets the value we have set for Bradley. That bid does require a player to leave the club concerned first if they are to go ahead with it.

“Two of the three bids are new to the table since last Tuesday. Bradley’s market value is still there. Whatever problem he has got, it’s only a short-term one.

“We aren’t going to roll over and let our players go on the cheap because it doesn’t solve our problems.”
