Livingston manager Gary Holt has said that the club have had no offers for striker Lyndon Dykes. Rangers, Celtic, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Blackburn, Millwall, Wigan and Derby are all said to be interested in the 24-year-old.
However, Holt confirmed that, despite all the speculation surrounding the forward, they have yet to receive any formal bid so far this summer:
“There’s been nothing concrete for Lyndon, or any of our players for that matter. Nobody has been in touch. We’ll have to wait and see what happens but it’s been a case of people putting two and two together and getting five.”
It is not surprising considering most clubs are keeping their powder dry due to the financial pressures caused by the global health crisis. With Livingston reportedly demanding £2m for Dykes, that would be a significant outlay for any team.
Even so, the Light Blues have been pretty active in the transfer market with four signings having been snapped up already, after Jon McLaughlin‘s arrival from Sunderland was confirmed yesterday.
A move for Dykes may well be out of the Gers’ reach, though, as it would be hard to justify spending £2m on a player who would not be a guaranteed starter.
