Oldham Athletic fans learned last week that George Edmundson would love a move up North. He knocked back a new contract offer and put in a transfer request.

The club has since had interest from Wigan Athletic, Hull City and most importantly, Rangers. It has since been reported that Oldham have rejected a second offer from Steven Gerrard’s club. That offer being around £500,000. It seems they want to take as much money for the defender as possible, as losing him would be a big loss for the club, but what do the Oldham fan base think?

There have been mixed reactions amongst Twitter, some thinking the price increase is a clever move, some aren’t so sure. 

One optimistic fan thinks it could be possible.

Another Oldham fan agrees and thinks the transfer fee being increased is promising. However, the negotiations seem to just be rejections at this point.

Another fan trying to see the bright side.

Then we have a couple of fans not seeing the light.

And finally a fan that is in total despair.

Opinions aside, a players future is at stake and he clearly isn’t happy at his current club so let’s hope an offer is accepted soon, but who will it be from? And how much?
