According to today's telegraph we rebuffed an approach by Barnet for Scott Neilson during the transfer window, as we didn't want to sell him to a promotion rival.

It also confirmed (as Big Chris mentioned) that because he was released outside of the transfer window he cannot sign for another team at our level or above, only Conference North/South level or below.

Anyone else think that Neilson might well have been in contact with Barnet himself (or perhaps his agent), trying to arrange this move?

I think we all knew he would be happier living back down south (and I was surprised when he re-signed for us at the start of this season), but I don't to think he was trying to jump ship at such an important stage of the season.

I dunno. Perhaps I'm just being paranoid, putting 2+2 together and getting 5.

There was talk of this at the Barnet game, but most people said surely we would not sanction a move to such a rival.

I think if you have less than 6 months on your contract you can approach and be approached by clubs. I might be wrong.


edit: yeah I'm wrong

If we could have got a fee for  him I would have offloaded him to Barnet with a clause that he couldn't play against us.

Bit of extra cash and having watched Barnet a couple of times I don't think he's better than there wingers anyway.
