Boreham Wood say they have reiterated to Charlton Athletic their asking price for Sorba Thomas.
It was reported yesterday that the League One side had made ‘a six-figure bid’ for the attacking player. Wood have now confirmed the Addicks have made an approach for Thomas but explain:
“After a leaked article was anonymously put into the public domain yesterday, and after much speculation that Charlton Athletic had made an offer for Wood fans’ favourite Sorba Thomas, the club can now publicly state that Charlton have in fact made a bid, but their kind offer falls a bit short of the club’s valuation of the player, which they were made aware of before making their offer in writing.
“We have, out of respect to both Charlton Athletic, Steve Gallen and of course the player, reiterated our asking price to Charlton by detailing what would trigger our acceptance, and we have also stated that we are very happy to take payments in stages to assist the player in securing his move into the EFL.”
