Dearden Unhappy With City Approach

Last updated : 07 May 2003 By Andy Beill
County are currently in administration, and Dearden claims City "exploited" that by taking Allsopp.

He said: "I'm very disappointed. I am disappointed in Peter Taylor and I am disappointed in Danny himself. I am very upset with Taylor, because he didn't have the courtesy to pick up the phone and talk to me.
"I have a lot of respect for Peter Taylor, but he hasn't done that. Instead, everything was conducted through the administrator. They knew we needed money and would probably need to sell - and they have exploited that."

Meanwhile, Taylor says Allsopp will be the last striker City sign this summer, ruling out returns for Michael Branch and Michael Reddy.
