Maynard has been linked with Middlesbrough and Stoke City this summer, but Alex coach Steve Holland told the club's official website: "I'm dreading that call coming for Nicky because we want to keep him here. I think he would benefit considerably by playing a full season with us, I think he has only played 50 games in his career so far.

"If we can avoid injuries, I think he has the ability to go on and finish as the leading goalscorer in League One next season."
