AFC Bournemouth assistant manager Jason Tindall believes that speculation linking the Cherries best players away from Dean Court is a compliment.
With the January transfer window set to open, many of AFC Bournemouth’s players could be the subject of transfer interest from rival Championship sides and potentially Premier League clubs.
Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has already been asked whether he has any interest in Cherries top goalscorer Callum Wilson, to which the Sandbanks resident replied with…
‘No I live down there, do you think I want to get my windows smashed in, that’s all I need. Yeah, I take their best player away, they’re top of the league, yeah good luck, I want to be able to go up the shops tomorrow…’
Whilst previously defender Steve Cook and midfielder Matt Ritchie have also been linked with potential moves away from the south coast.
Tindall told the Daily Echo…
“If people are talking about our players, it means we are doing something right and so are they. It is a great compliment to everyone at the club who have put in the hard work to everything we do on a day-to-day basis.
“Whether it is other clubs or the papers, it won`t change and ever since I have been here there has always been speculation about the players. A lot of the time, it is just speculation and although it is a compliment, it means nothing when you read it or hear people talking about it.
“We can`t stop anyone showing interest in any of our players. If anyone were to come in for any of our players then we would have to deal with it but we certainly don`t want that to happen.
“Every member of the squad has to keep their focus, keep working hard every day and not read anything into transfer speculation or what they might be reading in the tabloids.”
