Barrow AFC boss Mark Cooper says striker Dimitri Sea has turned down the possibility of a move.

The Bluebirds manager says the club have received enquiries from different sources for the French frontman.

But Cooper says the 20-year-old has decided against moving on this occasion.

“We’ve had a couple of inquiries for Dimitri Sea but he’s chosen not to take them up,” Barrow’s boss told The Mail.

“It’s down to where he sees himself playing. We’ve had some enquiries from Wales, [and] from non-league, but we’ll see what happens.”

Sea has made nine appearances and scored two goals in an injury-hit campaign at Holker Street.

Cooper, meanwhile, says there has been no further news on the offer for one of his key players which he revealed last week.

He added: “No-one’s for sale unless it’s a ridiculous offer – and it certainly wasn’t a ridiculous offer.”

Barrow’s manager has spoken of his wish for certain fringe players to head out on loan before the January 31 transfer deadline in order to get first-team football.

He has not ruled out the possibility of further arrivals, meanwhile, after the signings of Will Harris, Anthony Glennon and Jacob Wakeling, but added that extra new faces were not currently imminent.

“Like I always say, if the right player of real quality becomes available that we can get, we’ll look at it,” he added.

After loan defender Festus Arthur was recalled by parent club Hull City this week, Cooper says he has no plans at present to replace him in the Bluebirds squad.

The centre-half’s season-long loan was cut short and the 20-year-old was on the bench for the Tigers in their 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers in the Championship on Wednesday.

“Not at the moment,” said Cooper when asked if he could move to replace Arthur with a signing.

“We’ve got players that can fill in [in that position]; we’ve got KG [Kgosi Ntlhe], Ollie Banks can play there, Tom Beadling can play there, so we’ve got enough.”

On Arthur’s departure, the Barrow boss added: “I spoke to Festus and we discussed that he maybe needed to go and play more game time, because he’s out of contract at the end of the season.

“I know his representatives were exploring the possibility of him getting maybe another loan move, maybe National League.

“Out of the blue Hull had a few injuries, they called him back and he was on the bench the other night against Blackburn.

“Good luck to Festus, he’s contributed to our group, been a popular member of the group and I hope he goes back and does well.”
