King’s Lynn target Reed rejects move

Wisbech midfielder Callum Reed has rejected a potential move to FA Vase quarter-finalists King's Lynn.

Town joint boss Kevin Boon confirmed late on Friday afternoon Reed is poised to remain at the club's Ridgeons Premier Division neighbours after launching a seven day approach earlier this week.

Lynn's management have targeted fresh reinforcements to bolster the club's league and cups push, but Fenmen boss Steve Appleby had publicly vowed to hold onto his young prospect.

'Callum has indicated he wants to stay at Wisbech so we wish him all the best,' said Boon. 'He was a player we had looked at over Christmas and he had played and we were aware of him anyway because he played with Ross Watson so we had do a little bit of homework. Apps was obviously keen to keep the player and we respect that. We are still looking for players that can come in but as we've said all along they have to be better than what we feel we have at the club.'

Appleby admitted he is delighted to have kept one of his key players this season.

'Callum has agreed with me over the phone that he's going to stay but we've got a couple of things to iron out face to face tomorrow,' he said. 'I had a chat to Boony today and he said he'd spoken to Callum who told him he was not going to join them.

'At this stage things are looking very promising and I'm absolutely delighted that it seems like he's turned Lynn down and wants to stay with us.'
