McInnes plays down transfer rumours

Bristol City manager Derek McInnes has assured fans that the club are yet to receive any bids for their star players.

Nicky Maynard and Albert Adomah, who have scored 12 of the Robins` 21 league goals this term, have been linked with Premier League clubs but McInnes insists it is purely speculation at this stage.

He told the club`s official website: "We`ve had no bids for any of our players. We`ve had a few enquiries for players to go out on loan but certainly nothing concrete.

"It`s the time of the year when people like to start speculating. Sometimes a simple phone call from one club to another, or from an agent to a club soon turns into supposed huge interest.

"I`m well aware of the players with speculation surrounding them up and down the country. We can`t stop that, but all I can confirm is we`ve had no bids."

McInnes also added that they have not asked Ryan McGivern`s parent club Manchester City about the current loanee`s long-term future.
