CHESTER CITY moved a step closer to getting their man last night when Doncaster Rovers accepted a substantial bid from the Deva Stadium outfit for their striker, Greg Blundell.
The former Northwich Victoria hit-man has been the subject of interest from City for the past three months, and it is known that he would like to return to his native North West.
Yesterday's developments have taken the negotiations a step closer to a positive finale. City chairman, Stephen Vaughan said: "I have spoken to John Ryan,Doncaster Rovers Chairman, and he has in principle accepted a six figure offer.
"There are still further negotiations to be held. The player apparently is also the subject of interest from another club, and of course we will have to sit down with Greg and discuss his terms."
Vaughan added: "We have also made an offer for a defender who has been targeted by our manager, Keith Curle. At this stage I won't divulge the player nor his club."
In another development, Curle has told Andy Watson he doesn't figure in City's plans.
"Keith has made an offer to Andy and his agent in lieu of settlement of the remainder of his contract. We are expecting a response from them in the next day or so," said Vaughan.
