Bristol City’s Managing Director Jon Lansdown insists the much talked about loan move for Albert Adomah is not on the cards.
There are reports the Ghana winger can still join another club on loan with a view to a permanent deal despite the shutting of the Janaury transfer window.
Adomah’s agent was quoted in the English press to have said such an arrangement could be made outside the stipulated transfer period.
But Lansdown was adamant such a move was not an option.
“That’s (loaning Adomah) not really an option,” he said.
“I think the interview (with Adomah’s agent) got mixed up a bit because he was talking about a couple of Championship clubs first and then about moving straight to the Premier League.
“But you can’t move on loan to a Premier League club so I don’t see that it’s something we would pursue.
Lansdown confirmed there were rejected bids for the 25-year-old who is currently on international duty with the Black Stars at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
He however bemoaned the inaccurate reports especially with the figures involved in the Adomah transfer saga.
“We confirmed there was a bid for Albert (that was rejected), but the frustration with January is there is so much attention focused on it,” he added.
“From our point of view most of what is put out in the press is incorrect. There was interest in Albert, there were two bids from one club.
“Some of the quoted figures weren’t correct. Some of them were higher than quoted but they weren’t as high as we value Albert.”
