Reid money goes toward club's future - Robbo

Last updated : 01 August 2009 By Bigrich.....
The 21 year old is still on the transfer list and who knows where he's going.. Earlier MillersMAD reported that Leicester have now joined the hunt for the 19 goal top scorer.

However, whatever happens with the sale. Boss Mark Robins will not be seeing the proceeds from the transfer in his playing budget, instead the money will be used to stabilise the club he tells todays Advertiser.

"The money saved from Reuben Reid's pay will go into my wages budget but anything else that comes in will be put into underpinning the future of this football club." he said.

"We have a capable guy here now in Steve Coakley who will maximise our commercial activity but it is limited because we are playing at a ground, Don Valley Stadium, which we do not own. We've a new stadium and a new training ground to fund and we are trying to do things prudently while trying to put the best team on the pitch as possible."

"This club has been in financial difficulties before and we don't want that to happen again. We're trying to build firm foundations." he added.

Robbin will be sad to see Rueben leave but feels he cant stand in the way of ambition he telled the tiser; "He didn't want to stay and thought he would be better served at a higher level. That's what every player aspires to. You can't stand in the way of ambition."

"I want to thank him for what he's done for us and I'm sure the supporters do too. How much we miss him remains to be seen. We've lost a potential 19 goals out of the side but I hope I've brought in players this summer who can add to that number."
