Williams netted his 17th goal of the campaign as the Glovers condemned Chesterfield to relegation from League One on Saturday and the wheels are in motion to keep hold of the 25-year-old.

"We have already put in our pleas," Johnson told the Western Morning News. "Everybody has an opportunity to sign and, after a decent season, everybody appreciates where they were and what that club has done for them.

"We are not going to be able to entice him through sentiment but I do not mind saying that Andy has probably been made the biggest offer this club has ever made somebody and it is on his table now.

"We made that offer early so it will be up to him. He has obviously got to look at his options, and that's the professional thing to do.

"I for one hope he stays because I think we are going to be competing next year and it will be nice to have him with us and not against us."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
