Millwall warn West Brom about "looking stupid" over Wood fee

Millwall have warned West Bromwich Albion they risk "looking stupid" over their asking price for Chris Wood.

Millwall chairman John Berylson stated there was now a take-it-or-leave £1million offer for Wood, warning Albion they risked making themselves look ‘stupid’ if another club failed to match that bid.

He said: “They told us £500,000 and I said fine. They said £1 million and I said fine. So I’ve gone for it already – I’m done. That’s it. For us, it’s a take-it-or-leave-it offer. We’re not going to increase it but I’m sure West Brom are thinking about an auction.

“If we take our bid off the table, which is worth well over £1million – that’s not including a sell-on clause either – and West Brom end up selling him for half that in the future, they will look stupid.

“That’s their biggest danger really, looking stupid. I know Huddersfield are in there but Chris has a flat in London.”
