Carlisle United could face losing striker Ashley Nadeson, currently on loan with the Cumbrians from Fleetwood Town.
Nadeson has been in fine form for John Sheridan’s side, bringing pace and poise to their forward line. His goals have fired them up the table, but it is now reported that he’s being chased by ambitious Salford City.
It’s believed that Fleetwood could recall the player in January, only to immediately cash in on him with Salford thought to be offering a six-figure sum.
It would be a huge blow for Carlisle who have impressed under their new manager, but in the main thanks to Nadeson’s presence up front. Indeed, they went out of the FA Cup without him this weekend after he was denied the opportunity to play by Joey Barton’s side.
The 24-year old is came to prominence with Horley Town and was later snapped up by Fleetwood. He has bagged seven goals so far this season.
If he is recalled, there’s likely to be interest from elsewhere in League Two, but Salford’s spending power is such that they’re going to head up the queue.
The money Salford can offer is obscene, in the summer they offered more wages to Adam Rooney than Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen.
Nadeson is a good striker, but is he £3k a week good?
Would a League Two club be willing to risk that sort of money on a player who is quick, but by no means prolific?
