Pearce Not Budging

Last updated : 18 August 2005 By Matt Bottom
Stuart Pearce says he will not be ripped off by Bolton as he tries to lure Greek star Stelios Giannakopoulos to the City Of Manchester Stadium.

"If we have got the players in by the deadline we will be delighted and if not we will keep doing our homework and hopefully go back in when the window reopens.

"We have made the offer and if Bolton accept that offer we will be delighted. If it doesn't happen then maybe somewhere down the line it will do.

"At the moment with what his left on his contract and his age and everything else taken into consideration we value him at £1m and that is where we are."
