EASTLEIGH boss Lee Bradbury revealed that summer signing Brennan Camp turned down League Two sides to join the National League outfit.

Camp spent the closing stages of last campaign on loan at the Silverlake from AFC Bournemouth, making 15 appearances and scoring one goal.

When his contract expired, Bradbury was quick to make a move.

The Daily Echo understands that Cherries did not offer the defender new terms, meaning that despite being a full-time club, Eastleigh did not have to pay any compensation to secure his services.

Discussing the capture of the defender, Bradbury told the Daily Echo: “I think it worked in our favor that he came here (last year), done well, enjoyed his football.

“He knew he was going to have a good chance to play.

“He had League Two teams after him, offering more money, but he wanted to be here, he wanted to be part of a new project that I'm putting together and believed in the club and signed for a couple of years.

“So it's a great signing for us because it was excellent for us last year.”
