Social media has been buzzing this morning with news that we’re going to get clarification of the situation around West Brom’s alleged talks with our management team.
One journalist has been at the heart of the recent reports, Nick Mashiter tweeting about both the Baggies interest and of the ‘talks’ that have supposedly taken place recently. His articles for the PA have found their way into papers and websites, but have all seemingly originated from his information.
That information has sparked fear and panic amongst some Imps fans. Well, fear no more.
The club have put out a statement saying that there’s been no approach at all for the duo and that they’re still committed to the cause here at Sincil Bank.
“The success we have enjoyed over the last 3 remarkable seasons has brought us considerable positive coverage and raised the profile of the club, the players and Danny and Nicky Cowley. The accolades for our management team have been thoroughly deserved and it is understandable if they attract the attention of clubs at a higher level.
However, we have had no official approach from any club to speak with Danny and Nicky.
The board talk regularly with Danny and Nicky who remain totally committed and focused on preparations for next season in our new adventure in League 1.”
I’m working for Football League World at the moment and can’t go into too much depth, but this does lay bare the problem with the likes of Twitter, almost as much as some ‘ex agent’ claiming Michael O’Connor has a three-year deal on the table from Harrogate, or that we’re interested in x, y and z player.
More to follow this afternoon.
