Sky Sports The Limit

The Sky Sports website have published a story surrounding Tim Sills today which, although only goes to reinforce what most Shots fans are already aware of, may give hope that the signing of a new striker is just around the corner.

Manager Terry Brown has already stated that he is looking to keep his best players at the Rec - but is also aware that he needs to shift some of his dead-wood to free up funds to be able to make this happen.

Most Shots supporters would love to see a player such as Guy Madjo sign for the club but there are also the likes of Jonny Dixon and Jake Robinson who would be just as welcome so it will be a case of waiting to see what - if any deals will be made before the end of the month.

The full Sky story (which was run with a picture of Tarkan Mustafa to show the quality of the article):

"Aldershot Town have denied receiving a firm offer for striker Tim Sills.

As exclusively revealed on last week, the 26-year-old is now being roundly touted as the most likely of the Nationwide Conference's hot-shots to depart in the January transfer window.

But manager Terry Brown is still waiting for League Two promotion-chasers Leyton Orient to make a firm offer for the player who has scored 42 times in 87 starts for The Shots.

Having landed winger Ryan Williams on a two-year deal, the Hampshire club are continuing to search for reinforcements up front, with Forest Green Rovers' on-loan striker Guy Madjo a target.

The 21-year-old is at The Lawn having agreed a temporary switch from Bristol City, and scored twice as FGR defeated The Shots 4-2 on New Year's Eve.

Aldershot potentially have the power to gatecrash the deal, with Shots defender Brian Tinnion having offered Madjo pro terms last August when manager of City.

Already this season, Notts County have cancelled a loan deal with Exeter City for winger Tony Scully only to ship the player out immediately on improved terms to Crawley Town.

A similar arrangement for Madjo may be on the cards with Aldershot enjoying considerably greater spending power than Gloucestershire side Forest Green."
