Exeter City are thought to be one of two League Two clubs to have lodged a bid for Motherwell striker Ryan Bowman.
The 27-year old has formerly been with Darlington, Hereford and Gateshead to name but a few. He switched to Fir Park in 2016 where he has since scored 14 times in 86 appearances.
He’s now been the subject of a bid from a couple of League Two clubs, a fact that ruled him out of their 1-0 SPL defeat at the hands of Kilmarnock yesterday. The bid was then confirmed by manager Steven Robinson.
“We may have an offer for Ryan Bowman,” he told the Scottish Sun. “It came in very late in the day so we felt it was in everyone’s best interests that he wasn’t involved.”
Despite the interest from the Grecians, they may face stiff competition with several other League Two clubs looking for a striker. Crawley are in the hunt for a front man, as are Mansfield Town. Carlisle United may also be interested, they’re the club with which Bowman started his career and they look set to lose Ashley Nadeson this transfer window.
Bowman’s goals to game ratio isn’t great, but then Jayden Stockley’s wasn’t until he rocked up in Devon.
If Exeter are moving for Bowman, it could mean the end for Stockley, a player likely to attract bids of £1m from Championship sides. That would leave Exeter in huge profit, something vital to their current business model.
