Rose hands in transfer request
mansfieldtown.net, Wed 1 Aug 2018

Striker Danny Rose has handed in a written transfer request, the club can confirm.

Mansfield Town chairman John Radford said: “I was both shocked and disappointed to receive this transfer request from Danny Rose, especially after we offered Danny a lucrative new two-and-a-half year contract in January, which he signed.

“However, no one player is bigger than Mansfield Town Football Club and there is no justification for keeping a player whose mind has been made up.

“Until any prospective transfer is completed, Danny is contracted as a Mansfield Town player and will only be sold if our valuation of the player is met.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the club will pursue with the football authorities any act designed to induce a breach of contract in order to facilitate the transfer of the player.”

Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose submits transfer request as Peterborough United look to sign him
Rose is understood to feel unwanted by manager David Flitcroft as Mansfield they are 'shocked and disappointed'

By Matt Davies, 1 AUG 2018

Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose is understood to have submitted a transfer request.

The move comes after the Stags said they had received an offer for the player, but it had not met their valuation.

Last night Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony said Mansfield had offered Rose to them as he went public with a potential fee.

“So regards Danny Rose thing. The owner of Mansfield called Barry Fry last Thursday to say the lad was surplus to requirements and would we like to sign him," he tweeted.

“We asked manager, he said yes so we made a fair, discreet bid for the player. Next thing it’s out publicly we had £300k bid turned down.

"We didn’t bid £300k for player, but as per usual I feel we are being used to get interest elsewhere in player. All very odd & quite frankly exhausting. Happy to do business with any club sensibly. On we go & no biggie.”

Mansfield chairman John Radford this evening confirmed Rose wants to go.

“I was both shocked and disappointed to receive this transfer request from Danny Rose, especially after we offered Danny a lucrative new two-and-a-half year contract in January, which he signed," he said.

“However, no one player is bigger than Mansfield Town Football Club and there is no justification for keeping a player whose mind has been made up.

“Until any prospective transfer is completed, Danny is contracted as a Mansfield Town player and will only be sold if our valuation of the player is met.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the club will pursue with the football authorities any act designed to induce a breach of contract in order to facilitate the transfer of the player.”

A source close to Rose has backed up Peterborough's version of events, adding that Rose feels he is not well liked by manager David Flitcroft having previously playing under him at both Bury and Barnsley.

Rose has two years left on his deal and it is believed he bears the Stags no ill will, but feels he has been put in a position where he has to leave.

It is understood he hopes to join Peterborough - a move that would see him reunited with former Mansfield boss Steve Evans - if the clubs can come to an agreement.

Peterborough United bid for Mansfield forward Danny Rose takes another twist
peterboroughtoday.co.uk, by ALAN SWANN, Wednesday 01 August 2018

Peterborough United’s interest in Mansfield forward Danny Rose took another turn today (August 1) as the player reportedly asked his current club for a transfer. But Posh director of football Barry Fry is unsure if the deal will happen after a war of words broke out between the clubs in the last 24 hours. Fry backed chairman Darragh MacAnthony’s claim that Posh had been offered Rose by Mansfield chairman John Radford as Stags manager Dave Flitcroft had deemed the player surplus to his requirements. Posh promptly made a bid which was rejected. Hours later Mansfield declared through their local press that an unnamed club had seen a £300k bid turned down for a 24 year-old who scored 17 goals last season, all of them while Evans was Stags’ manager.

MacAnthony, who revealed the Posh bid was not as much as £300k, then accused Mansfield of using Posh to bump Rose’s price tag up.

Fry said today: “My chairman is spot on. John Radford contacted me asking if we wanted Rose. I asked Steve Evans who said yes. We put an offer in writing as we were asked to do and I was told we were £20k short. “I have no idea we were offered the player if they didn’t really want to sell him to us, but I can guess. We are still interested and if the player has asked for a transfer who can blame him? He played his best football for Steve, but he’s now been managed three times by Flitcroft and each time he has tried to get rid of him. He sold him from Barnsley to Bury and then he sold him from Bury to Mansfield. He clearly doesn’t fancy him.

“I’m not so sure it will happen though. I’m not sure they really want to do business with us.”

MacAnthony said on social media last night: “So regards Danny Rose thing. the owner of Mansfield called Barry Fry last Thursday to say the lad was surplus to requirements and would we like to sign him. “We asked manager, he said yes so we made a fair, discreet bid for the player. Next thing it’s out publicly we had £300k bid turned down.We didn’t bid £300k for player, but as per usual I feel we are being used to get interest elsewhere in player. All very odd & quite frankly exhausting. Happy to do business with any club sensibly. On we go & no biggie.”

Mansfield issued a bland statement this afternoon stating: “For clarity, we had not and will not reveal the identity of the bidding clubs out of professional courtesy. “It should be noted that it is not uncommon, in my experience, for in-demand players to be subject to media speculation in an attempt by others to unsettle them during transfer windows. “We will continue to conduct our business in the right way and are in a very good place right now - as a club and squad - ahead of the big kick-off on Saturday.”

War of words as Mansfield Town chairman Radford responds to Peterborough accusations over Rose deal
chad.co.uk, by JOHN LOMAS, Wednesday 01 August 2018

The war of words between Mansfield Town and Peterborough United continued today as Mansfield Town chairman John Radford gave a measured response to Tweets made by Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony over a possible move for striker Danny Rose. Stags had never mentioned Peterborough as a potential destination, but MacAnthony went public to accuse Stags of ‘using’ Posh to bump up interest in the striker and claims the player was offered to them via a private conversation between Radford and Posh director of football Barry Fry.

However, Radford will tell fans in Saturday’s match programme: “As we head towards the end of the transfer window, it is important to keep our supporters up-to-date with transfer activity, wherever possible. “As I mentioned earlier this week when asked, we have received transfer bids for strikers Danny Rose and Lee Angol. “Both are good players and are well-valued members of our squad. “Furthermore, and for clarity, we had not and will not reveal the identity of the bidding clubs out of professional courtesy. “It should be noted that it is not uncommon, in my experience, for in-demand players to be subject to media speculation in an attempt by others to unsettle them during transfer windows. “We will continue to conduct our business in the right way and are in a very good place right now - as a club and squad - ahead of the big kick-off on Saturday. “We will keep supporters abreast of any developments wherever possible.”

Peterborough accuse Mansfield Town of lies over alleged Rose transfer
chad.co.uk, by JOHN LOMAS, Wednesday 01 August 2018

Peterborough United owner Darragh McAnthony has accused Mansfield Town of lies and ‘using them’ to bump up interest in striker Danny Rose. He claims the player was offered to ex-Stags boss Steve Evans last week via a private conversation between Stags chairman John Radford and Posh director of football Barry Fry.

Yesterday, the Stags said that, to be transparent, they wanted to inform fans that several clubs had made bids for strikers Rose and Lee Angol but none had reached their market valuation as yet, though were expected to eventually.

No club names were ever mentioned by Mansfield. However, last night Posh owner McAnthony took to Twitter to accuse Stags of initially offering Rose to them in private and then making the details public. Their version of events are very different to those of the Stags with Radford publicly claiming to fans he did not want to lose Rose or Angol.

McAnthony said on his Tweets: “So regards D. Rose thing. Owner of Mansfield called BF last Thursday to say the lad was surplus to requirements and would SE like to sign him. We asked manager and he said yes so we made a fair bid for player discreetly. Next thing it’s out publicly we had 300k bid turned down. And. “We didn’t bid £300k for player but as usual I feel we being used to get interest elsewhere in player. All very odd and quite frankly exhausting. Happy to do business with any club sensibly. On we go & no biggie. That’s the truth as I have no reason to say otherwise.”

Chad understands Mansfield Town will comment on these allegations later today.
