Adam Bolder has been sold to Premiership strugglers Derby County for £100,000. The nineteen year old midfielder, who has been a first team regular since making his full debut in December, today put pen to paper for the Pride Park club after passing a medical inspection. The deal is riddled with clauses meaning the initial figure could rise based on appearances made and if he is the first man on Mars etc etc…Good luck to the lad, you can’t stand in his way I suppose and of course the club needs the money. It’s just a shame we are so eager to part with a product of the club’s youth set up after barely a handful of first team appearances, expect Bradshaw to follow then.
Hull born Bolder has indicated that he didn’t really want to leave, telling the HDM “It won’t be easy leaving and I want to make it clear it wasn’t my idea to move…but everyone knows City are short of money and obviously they had no real choice but to sell me.” Makes you wonder what happened to the £500,000 our chairman generously offered to put in, doesn’t it?
