Mansfield Town have rejected a second offer from Bournemouth for promising defender Tom Naylor, who is currently on trial at Fulham.

Naylor has been attracting interest from several clubs and spent last week training with Derby County before linking up with the Cottagers.

He is also a target for Bournemouth, but Mansfield boss Paul Cox has confirmed the League One side's reported five-figure offer has been turned down.

Cox told the club's official website: "The bid we received from Bournemouth does not match our valuation of Tom.

"The only time we will let Tom leave is if we receive adequate compensation for him."

Messing around

After training with Derby last week, Naylor featured in the Stags' 5-0 win over Newport on Saturday and Cox is keen for any clubs interested in the 20-year-old to make a fair offer.

He added: "I don't want league clubs messing us around. They have to make a decision on him.

"If they didn't want to make a decision we'll close the door because I don't want Tom's head being kept turned.

"You want his sights set on us if he is stopping with us, or if he is going to get a move, you want that done quickly. It's not good for both parties if he is being messed around."
