No enquiries for Green says Stags boss Cox

STAGS boss Paul Cox today quashed speculation that 30-goal Matt Green might be off to Preston North End.

A national news story suggested Preston, along with Burnley, were tracking Green, who is under contract at the One Call Stadium next season.

But Cox said: “I have not had one single enquiry about Matt.

“There will be a lot of speculation this summer surrounding our better players and we cannot stop speculation at this stage of the season. “Matt has had a tremendous season with us and as I said recently, we are in the process of putting together a squad which will improve on our position of third place from last season - to do that we aim to keep our best players.”

On Monday Stags turned down a below-valuation bid from Burnley for full-back Luke O’Neill.
