WDP Report Pirates Interest In Williams

This morning's Western Daily Press is reporting that Andy Williams is Bristol Rovers' top target to replace the departed Junior Agogo.

They report the Agogo fee as £125,000 - and note that the bulk of that money will be needed to prise Williams from Edgar Street. Director of Football Lennie Lawrence refused to confirm any interest in the striker, but told the WDP: "We are actively looking for the right sort of striker to strengthen our squad."

Williams has been chased by several clubs since bursting into the first team last November, scoring 13 times in 36 starts since, and Bristol Rovers is by no means the biggest club to show interest in the forward who has just turned 20, with more than a dozen Premiership and Championship sides sending scouts to games at the end of last season.
