Brewers confirm Cobblers bid for Harrad

24 December 2010 01:00
Burton have received an offer for Shaun Harrad from Boxing Day opponents Northampton. The 26-year-old striker, Albion`s leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions this season, is out of contract in the summer. Talks over a new deal have stalled recently but Burton remain hopeful that they can persuade Harrad to stay. "Northampton did make a bid, yes - and we have passed it on to Shaun's agent," Albion chairman Ben Robinson told the Derby Telegraph. "We've been in discussions for some time about a new contract. "I think Shaun wants to play at a higher level, which you can understand - but the manager (Paul Peschisolido) would prefer him to stay."
