Magpie Wall's got it Maid!

Maidenhead United have confirmed that two bids for young forward Alex Wall have been placed by higher-league clubs.
Magpie striker set to leave: Alex Wall in action

Continued speculation surrounding Wall's future at the club has taken a new high following the confirmation that two bids for the striker had been rejected.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form this season for the Blue Square South outfit, who currently lie 14th in the league table. Wall has scored 12 goals in as many matches for the Magpies this campaign and appears to be impressing scouts from other clubs.

The first offer, received last Monday, was turned down by chairman Peter Griffin, but following the team's 1-0 defeat to Chesham United on Tuesday evening Maidenhead manager Johnson Hippolyte revealed a second party were interested, “We had another enquiry for him yesterday, they are going to get back to us in the next few days and we will go from there.”

Wall joined Maidenhead United in the summer of 2009 and began his Magpies career scoring 14 goals that season. The striker has featured as a first-team regular ever since and played a major part in keeping the side in the Blue Square South last season, as they escaped relegation by a single point.
