Notts County make Harewood offer
Thursday 02 June 2011
Notts County have made an audacious attempt to sign former West Ham, Aston Villa and Blackpool striker Marlon Harewood.
The 31-year-old, a free agent after his release from Bloomfield Road, met with County boss Martin Allen yesterday and was offered a two-year contract.
"I can confirm, after the non-stop rumours, that I met Marlon Harewood with the chairman at Meadow Lane for a couple of hours yesterday," Allen told http://www.nottscounty.co.uk.
"We've offered a two-year deal. I know he has a lot of options and several at Championship level, but if you don't ask, you don't get."
Harewood hit 14 Premier League goals for West Ham in 2006 and also picked up an FA Cup runners-up medal, but his career nosedived after a £4million move to Aston Villa.
He would feel at home at Meadow Lane, though, having begun his career just across the River Trent at Nottingham Forest.
