Crawley Get £800,000 For Tubbs

Crawley have sold striker Matt Tubbs to Bournemouth for a reported £800,000 fee.

The Cherries had a £500,000 bid rejected last Friday, but have now resigned the striker they chose not to sign in 2008 from Salisbury. He had a loan spell at Dean Court midway through the 08/09 season, scoring once in eight games, but the Cherries opted not to follow up the deal.

The 27 year old scored 58 times in 80 games for the Red Devils after a phenomenal record at Salisbury prompted them to spend £55,000 on him.

Meanwhile, fellow striker Tyrone Barnett is also a transfer target after rejecting a £900,000 move to Blackpool last week. Peterboro have had several bids rejected for the former Macclesfield man.
