Target Mayor at Portman Road
Thursday, 27th Jun 2019 16:23
TWTD understands Bury winger Danny Mayor was at Portman Road earlier this afternoon with the Blues as the 28-year-old free agent weighs up the various clubs interested in signing him this summer.
Mayor, whose Bury contract is up at the weekend, is understood to be checking out his various options having travelled to Plymouth yesterday to look around the League Two club, who are managed by his former Shakers boss Ryan Lowe.
As TWTD revealed this morning, Mayor is interesting Town with talks about about a move to Portman Road having taken place and he paid the club a visit this afternoon, although the wideman has now left and appears to be continuing to assess his alternatives with a deal not believed to be close to being done at this stage.
Argyle boss Lowe has confirmed his club has offered terms to Mayor and that he was at Home Park yesterday.
Lowe says he’s aware the Pilgrims are one of several interested parties and expects Mayor to make a decision on his future soon. Mayor’s former loan side Tranmere are believed to be among the other interested parties.
Lowe told Plymouth Live: “We have tabled an offer, he knows what it looks like. He has been very open and transparent with us, because he can and he always is.
“He’s obviously speaking to other clubs, which again is fine. We will respect whatever decision Dan makes.
“For us, he’s someone that has been on our radar since the minute I got the job, so we will just have to see how that pans out.”
Meanwhile, Millwall have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Frank Fielding from Bristol City.
However, that may not necessarily mark an end to the Lions’ interest in Town’s Bartosz Bialkowski with manager Neil Harris understood to be after two keepers this summer having lost three at the end of last season.
Earlier in the week, Town pulled out of Bialkowski’s £1 million switch to Millwall after the South Londoners sought to renegotiate the deal due to concerns regarding his knee which emerged during his medical.

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
