Following reports of a £500,000 bid for Swindon Town's Matt Ritchie, interest now appears to have been cooled.
With rumour and speculation being reignited around Matt Ritchie at Swindon Town, it would now appear that Dean Courtinterest in the winger has been cooled following rejection of bid reported to be around £500,000!
The Swindon Town Chairman, Jeremy Wray, is quoted in the Wiltshire press as saying: "The figure may appear large on the surface but things are not always as they seem underneath. Added together, the offer fell way short of our valuation".
Meanwhile, at Dean Court, director Tom Mitchell is quoted as saying on the Clubs Official Web Site: "As the supporters are aware, we are looking to add quality players to the squad but we decided, after having our latest bid rejected by Swindon Town, that it’s now time to draw a line under that one and move on. We also felt it was best to disclose the details of the bid to stop the constant speculation being published that hampers our efforts on a daily basis".
