Charlton Athletic have had two bids for Exeter City’s Joel Randall turned down, Lee Bowyer has revealed.
The 21-year-old midfielder came up through the ranks with the Grecians and has scored eight goals in all competitions for the Devon side this season.
Bowyer said: “We’ve made two bids for him but I don’t think he’s going to be in our price range, from what I hear. He’s a good, young player. But he’s only played about 15 games in League Two in his career. He wouldn’t be for now, he’d be a project for the future. From what I understand, what they’re asking for would be out of our price range.
“Yes, something like that – around a million but I think that’s a lot of money for someone who’s played 14-16 games in League Two. That’s a lot of money for someone that’s done that. But I like him, I think he’s a good player.”
