Boss Chris Wilder has revealed he has not received any offers for any of his high-flying Cobblers squad.

Despite various internet rumours that the likes of winger Ricky Holmes and goalkeeper Adam Smith are wanted by other clubs, Wilder insists he has had no calls whatsoever - and that he is delighted that’s the case.

“I have not had any calls about any player which I am happy about,” said Wilder.

Holmes is said to have been interesting Milton Keynes Dons and Millwall among others, while goalkeeper Adam Smith has today been linked with Premier League Swansea City and Sky Bet Championship Burnley, who are managed by former Cobblers defender Sean Dyche.

Wilder says there is no substance to those stories, but admits he is not surprised his players are being linked with moves to other clubs.

“As I have always said, where the group is now to where it was, the personnel has really evolved and we believe we have assets on the pitch that are coveted by other clubs,” said Wilder.

“That can only be a good thing, as you would rather have that than players not taking the eye, and other clubs not fancying your players.”

The transfer window closes at 11pm on Monday, and Wilder is hopeful of having at least one more new signing through the door at Sixfields by then.
