Town turn down “significant” bid for Andy Drury

ANDY Drury’s hopes of joining Crawley Town have been dealt a blow after the Blues turned down a “significant” bid for the midfielder, according to the Red Devils boss Steve Evans.

The 28-year-old last week returned to Portman Road after a hugely successful three-month loan deal with the League Two side who remained unbeaten during Drury’s time there.

But their hopes of securing the former Luton Town man on a permanent basis have been scuppered for now after Crawley put in a written offer on Wednesday – which Ipswich have rejected.

Evans told The Argus: “As far as I am concerned that will be the end of the matter unless Ipswich have a change of mind.

“The player has been superb for us and very importantly wants to be here. Let us hope things can be sorted out and Andy’s real Christmas wish comes true.”
