Success will convince Daniel Nardiello to sign long-term contract, says Bury manager David Flitcroft

DANIEL Nardiello will assess Bury’s progress over the second half of the season before deciding whether to commit to the club long-term.

That is the view of Shakers manager David Flitcroft, who this week persuaded the 31-year-old Rotherham United striker to extend his loan deal at the JD Stadium until the end of the campaign.

Nardiello will now resume his partnership with fellow loan striker Anton Forrester - who has also agreed to extend his stay from Blackburn Rovers - for Saturday's trip to Chesterfield.

“When I work with a player I look into the whites of his eyes to see if he wants to be a part of something,” said Flitcroft.

“Nards does, but I think it might just be that we give him a bit more time to make that decision.

“I have only been in the building four weeks so he is assessing what we are doing and he’s assessing how strong we are going to get and how much we are going to improve.

“I think with Danny he wants to be part of something successful and if he can see that I think he will buy into it.”

The former Manchester United forward scored 19 goals for Rotherham last season, helping Steve Evans’ side win promotion to League One.

After banging in another five goals in the third tier at the start of the current campaign, it came as a shock to both the Millers and Shakers fans when he was tempted to move to the JD Stadium.

Flitcroft admitted the proven goalscorer could easily have walked away when his initial loan period ran out at the end of last week, but revealed he was tempted by the promise of an additional role at the club.

“Danny is quite excited about a possible coaching link that we might have and I can’t wait to let him get involved,” he said.

“I am also excited because Nards was someone who we really wanted to get over the line.

“I think he had other options, for sure, potentially from promotion-chasing clubs, but Nards has found a bit of a home here.

“He likes the way we conduct our business on the field and on the training ground.

“I now hope he commits further because he is certainly someone who leads the line for us in the way I want to play football.

“He’s ideal for that and he is someone I want to work with long term.”

Agreed. Fair enough and sorts out all the talk. If he is keen to stay and help with training...if he is qualified and keen...then do it!

Still think we need another striker with pace as back up to Nards and Forrester as Harrad still can't hit a barn door...

This is an excellent piece allowing the fans to get the full picture. No reason for gaffer to do this, but again I say he is a quality man with a strong professional and management skill.

Danny is a PROVEN goal scorer and I am still shocked that Rotherham let him go. Our benefit.

Still say he will bag a total of 20 goals overall. He is a class act.

Thanks Danny for believing in the club and fans.!!

Well said and yes if Danny gets his 20 goals and the defence does its job then a march up the table is on.

Absolute nonesense !!!!!!!!!!, this board remember got rid of all of the players who were on good wages and in so doing created instability which is why we had such a poor start to the season.

Some folk can't see beyond the front of their own nose.Had we kept a core of last season's squad we would have been at least challenging for the play offs now.

Hang your head in shame those who pressurised the then boss KB to get rid of the cream of the crop.

I also remember Ryan Lowe wanted to join our revolution but the board wanted to keep a tight rein on the spending.

Nards is a special player who should have more ambition than to play his part in fighting for our survival.

This club has become an absolute joke in media circles and the more i hear our chairman on these talk shows the more i think his ego is getting the better of him and our club.

I mean he was even late attending the press conference of David Flitcroft,how to impress a new manager deary me.

(FALSE DAWN FALSE REVOLUTION) Championship in 5 years get real)

There you go again Eileen all if's buts and maybe's,oh and i don't talk nonense.We had such a poor start to the season because under THE BLAGGER,the clowns up front could not get the ball in the onion bag and the defence was caught with its legs open too often,especially late in the game.For me we still persist with one of the clowns but hopefuly not for much longer (he of one goal in eleven fame who has not scored since making the statement that he is back --- oh yea)Of Bishop now gone could not hit the net if it were to glow in the dark.He pratted around akin to a ballerina and it is fair to say he has done nowt down in the Conf,so continuing to kid himself he is a striker.Fact progress is being made currently,RESULTS have improved,the ball is going in the onion bag again,the defenders are keeeping their legs closed.More importantly,it is better to watch football .Funny how my toes are not curling up in my shoes anymore.I wonder what has changed,i will leave you to tell me that.Av a gud weekend Eileen.
