Livingston have reportedly rejected a bid for Glasgow Rangers target Lyndon Dykes, according to the Daily Record.
The ‘Gers had been linked with a move for the Australian but Barnsley were the first side to make a bid for the forward.
That initial offer was rejected and now another bid from a Championship club – believed to be the Tykes – has been turned down. The sum was reportedly £1.2m but Livingston are looking for a fee of closer to £2m.
The ‘Gers had been in the market for a new striker but that potential problem for Steven Gerrard now looks to have been solved – he has added Cedric Itten and Kemar Roofe to his squad in the past couple of weeks, which gives him plenty more options up front even if Alfredo Morelos departs as speculation surrounding his future continues.
Would you like to sign Lyndon Dykes?
As such, the ‘Gers may have moved on from trying to sign Dykes this summer and, with just 12 goals last season in all competitions, he is not exactly the most prolific forward. Also, Livingston are clearly not ready to let one of their star players leave for a small fee – as such, perhaps the ‘Gers have been astute in already exploring other options.
