Souness is not going to push Lee Bowyers request to return to London.

Graeme Souness: ‘Lee Bowyer has made it known he wants to be in London playing his football. He feels he’s been out of London long enough. That’s my take on it.

‘Lee’s our player and until someone comes along with an offer, we accept he’ll remain our player. But he wants to go back home, it’s not footballing reasons because he’s started far more games for me than he’s not.

‘You have to ask others at the club if they’re keen to keep him, all the players like him.’
