Bristol City boss Lee Johnson has expressed his feelings towards the press regarding Harry Redknapp.
According to reports and the gaffer himself, Blues are interested in Bristol’s Aden Flint.
However, Johnson is unhappy with the way Redknapp spoke publicly about his defender, even though no formal bids have been made from either Blues or Leeds.
Here’s what he told the Geoff Twentyman’s BBC Radio show:
“The situation is that he’s a Bristol City player, he has three years left on his contract and we have had no bids. It’s as simple as that.”
“There’s always been interest and the difficult thing with the Championship nowadays is that there is some huge money about.
“With Harry [Redknapp] coming out publicly talking about one of our players – which I didn’t particularly like – and I will have to politely remind Harry that Bristol City players are not to be talked about by other managers as I would respect Birmingham City’s players.
“What we don’t want is players heads being turned if there is not genuine interest. If there is, then whoever the club is will have to pay to get them out.”
It seems Redknapp is upsetting a few people in this transfer window and maybe that’s why he’s finding it hard to bring anyone in at this stage, who knows?
What we do know is he’s not afraid to go out his way to talk to targets, as we saw with Emmanuel Badu last week at Huddersfield’s ground.
What do you think, is Harry being too forward with his targets and maybe he should keep them under wraps? Comment below your thoughts!
