Brown Looking At Deals

Last updated : 10 January 2006 By Stray Shots Team
The Aldershot News have reported that with the revolving door in full swing down at the Recreation Ground, Ahmed Deen and Tarkan Mustafa look set to be making their exits by the end of the week.

Manager Terry Brown told the paper, "I've got to get out before I can get in." explained Brown.

“I'm think two will have left by the end of the week which frees up some funds to supplement the squad with new blood.”

Tobi Jinadu remains transfer listed but is unlikely to be on the move as he continues to recover from his knee operation.

One player that won't be making his exit contrary to rumours, is Darren Barnard.

There had been some suggestion that the former Welsh international could be on his way to The Causeway Stadium in a swap deal for Dixon, but the boss dismissed the rumour saying “it has never been discussed.”

The boss also confirmed that there had been no other offers for the rest of the squad, although there are still three weeks left for moves.

“We haven't had any phone calls about any of the players, although we haven't really set the world alight this season. We would have to look at any serious offer. What's important about this window is that if no one moves after the 31st, we have them until the end of the season,” added Brown.

After a rare Saturday off, the boss took the opportunity to see Conference South neighbours Farnborough Town in action taking on Lewes.

Brown was also able to catch up with former assistant boss Stuart Cash also assisting at Lewes, as the boss cast his eye over potential recruits.

“It was a good game of football and I saw several players who caught my eye from both sides,” said Brown.

Indeed with ten goals so far this season for Boro it's likely striker Carl Gibbs would have been one of those players.
