Dickov - We won't be held to ransom for Duffy

Doncaster Rovers boss Paul Dickov says the club have had a second bid for Scunthorpe United winger Mark Duffy turned down.

Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws said last week that Rovers had made an offer that was well below their valuation of the 26-year-old.

Dickov`s admitted that the club have gone back in with a second bid, which has also been turned down and he says they will not be held to ransom.

Speaking on Radio Sheffield, Dickov said, "We made a bid, which we wanted to keep confidential but they decided to let it come-out, maybe they want it to be a bidding war. That is something we will not get involved in.

"We made another bid on Friday that was turned down, so we will leave it at that. The one thing we will not do is get held to ransom by anybody.

"We have a valuation of the player, who we think is a good player but we will move on."

A number of clubs are reportedly interested in the former Morecambe midfielder. Barnsley, Sheffield United and MK Dons are also keen on signing Duffy according to reports.
