Bury striker Andy Bishop is still considering his future as manager Andy Knill has been left to wait for a response to the contract offer he has made to the club's prize asset.

Knill confirmed that other teams have shown an interest in signing Bishop, who is out of contract in the summer.

He also insisted that his club have made a strong offer to the 26-year-old frontman.

"I don't think there are many teams, definitely in our league, that could match the offer we've made him," Knill told the Manchester Evening News.

Knill wants Bishop to provide a hasty answer to his contract offer as he plots a January transfer window raid to replace the striker if Bishop decides to move on.

Bishop has made 117 appearances for the Shakers, netting 57 times.

This has made him the club's leading scorer for the last three seasons.

With potential connections to the current Reds Assistant Ryan Kidd (from his days as Centre of Excellence Manager at Bury FC), could this be a potential alternative move - if the deal for Jamie Ward doesn't come off?

In comparison to Andy Bishop's stats above, Jamie Ward has made 109 Appearances (19 as Sub) since 2005/06, netting 43 times.
