Louis Wells could become best in league - Dartford


Dartford manager Tony Burman says new goalkeeper Louis Wells could become the best in Blue Square Bet South.

The 29-year-old made his debut in Saturday's 2-1 win at Salisbury after moving from Staines Town following Andy Young's departure.

Manager Tony Burman told BBC Radio Kent: "He's not the finished product but I want to help make him the best goalkeeper in this league."

"I feel he's a decent keeper. He's a big presence. He wants to learn."

Burman added: "He wants to improve. Once the coaching staff get their hands on him then who knows what could happen?"

Meanwhile Burman has revealed they have bid for two unnamed strikers as they look to replace Charlie Sheringham, who joined League One Bournemouth last month.

However Burman is adamant they will not pay more than a player is worth, despite money from both the Sheringham transfer and a recent windfall from a sell-on fee when Cody McDonald moved from Norwich to Coventry in August.

Burman said: "Clubs know we've got money and are obviously trying to get that money from us. The managers may feel those players are worth it but we made what I feel is a fair offer for a couple of players. It hasn't come off, I'll be patient and let's see what happens."
