No interest in Bishop says Knill

Andy Bishop
Bishop has been Bury's top scorer for the last three seasons

Bury manager Alan Knill has confirmed that he has received no bids for top scorer Andy Bishop.

The 26-year-old forward has scored 11 goals for the Shakers this season but has been heavily linked with a move away from Gigg Lane.

Knill told BBC Radio Manchester: "Nobody has come to me and said here's an amount of money for Andy Bishop.

"Andy Bishop's a Bury player today, but if someone comes in and we'll have to think about it."

Bishop joined Bury from York City in May 2006 and has scored 57 goals in 128 appearances for the League Two side.

"The speculation is unsettling for the lad and everybody else, there's always a new rumour," said Knill.

"Andy is key as to whether we can get some new players or not as his wage here takes up a fair amount of our budget. If he goes, it frees up some money.

"We're kind of in limbo at the moment. I'd like it resolved sooner or later," he added.
