Telstar tell rivals: Boozing in progress, no transfers please

Updated: 

Dutch outfit Telstar have told other clubs not to table any bids for their players on Friday as they plan to celebrate the festive season in a big way.

The Eerste Divisie side have organised their Christmas party pre-weekend and fear the amount of alcohol consumed may trigger them to sell some of their best players - and not necessarily for a fee that represents their true value.

With Telstar sitting 15th in the table with 21 points from 19 games, they can ill-afford to lose any of their star men, particularly at a reduced cost.

"A special request to all clubs; do not call us on Friday after 16:00," read a tweet from the club's official account.

"We will be drunk because of our Christmas party and are likely to agree to all transfers."

The Velsen side are currently on a 10-game winless streak, but that will seemingly not stop them enjoying themselves over Christmas!
