Bury Town have accepted an offer for want away striker John Sands, the Free Press can reveal.

The Blues will allow their top scorer to talk to the unnamed club this week ahead of a potential move away from Ram Meadow.

Sands handed in an official transfer request on Monday — the third time he has made his desire to leave public in the past six months.

Ex-Mildenhall Town forward Sands, who has scored seven times in 15 appearances so far in an injury-hit 2013/14, said: “I’ve had a couple of great seasons at Bury, but I hope they understand that I want a fresh challenge.”
