Bristol City boss Keith Millen insists there's been no contact for striker Nicky Maynard.

Maynard is a target for Liverpool and Everton ahead of the summer market.

"There is always speculation and you cannot do anything about that," said Millen in the Bristol Evening Post. "But I'm surprised to have to answer so many questions about this at this stage of the season.

"It does not worry me, because I know there is nothing in it. In fact, I see it as a compliment. I want people to be talking about my players, because that means they are doing something right.

"We have not heard anything from Everton, Liverpool or any other club and, as far as I'm concerned, this is just newspaper talk. Sometimes agents put things out there and sometimes it's just gossip.

"He scored 21 goals last year and no-one came knocking on our door. I'm hoping it will be the same this summer, because we certainly don't want to lose him."
