The Worthing talent attracted interest from the Sky Blues, Bristol Rovers and Barnsley this summer.

And, according to Crawley Town boss Harry Kewell, the Blues valued the Worthing talent at around £400k.

At the Reds' fans' forum earlier this week, a Crawley supporter asked Kewell if he could bring Chaplin to the Broadfield Stadium.

The boss replied: 'Have you got £400k in your back pocket?'
