DRFC Bournemouth boss rules out Hayter move
Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury says he is not interested in signing Doncaster Rovers striker James Hayter.
Bournemouth have been rumoured to be interested in signing their former striker in recent weeks, something Bradbury denies.
Bradbury was asked on BBC Radio Solent whether he had his eye on Hayter and a possible return to Dean Court in an interview, to which he replied, "No, I know James and know what he`s capable of. I don`t think Doncaster would let him go anyway if anyone was to enquire about him. He is doing well I think."
Hayter joined then Rovers for a then club record £200,000 in the summer of 2007, teaming up with manager and former Bournemouth manager Sean O`Driscoll again after eleven years at Dean Court.
He scored almost 100 goals during his time on the south coast and wrote himself into the Football League record books when he scored the quickest ever hat trick in 140 seconds.
In his first season at the Keepmoat, he was the clubs leading goalscorer with twelve goals. This included the header that wrote his name into Doncaster Rovers folklore, when he scored the only goal of the game against Leeds United in the League One play off final at Wembley.
In his first season with Rovers in the championship, injury restricted his season and he netted just four goals.
In the last two seasons, he has netted nine and ten goals respectively to help keep Rovers in the championship.
Hayter was injured on the opening day of this season at Brighton, an injury that ruled him out for three weeks.
He scored inside two minutes in his return game against Leeds United in the Carling Cup.
He has made just nine starts so far this season and eight substitute appearances netting three times.
The 32 year old is out of contract at the Keepmoat in the summer.
