Boss?S Bargain Hunt

David Moyes is ready to search for new talent in the Championship but has warned clubs he is not prepared to pay over-inflated prices.

Tim Cahill was one of the success stories of the Premiership last season after Moyes took a chance, poaching him for £1.5 million from Millwall.

The Australian quickly transformed himself into a top-flight star leaving Moyes not adverse to returning for a similar style bargain.

But the Blues Boss feels that clubs are pricing their players out of a potential move to the Premiership in an attempt to take advantage and boost their coffers.

He told "We picked up Tim Cahill from Milllwall in the Championship and he has been a tremendous acquisition.

"We are still looking in that division, but you find that the good ones are all being priced at £4million, and you don't take a punt on a player for that sort of money.

"For that money you want someone who has been there and done it. We paid £1.5m for Tim, and everybody would look at that as an acceptable risk.

"Paying £4million for Championship players is not the market we would be going into."
