LINCOLN City manager Danny Cowley has denied he is set to make a move to sign Peterborough United’s Ricky Miller.

The Imps have been linked with the 28-year-old striker in recent days but Cowley says a move for Miller has not yet been discussed between the two clubs.

Cowley said: “We have spoken to Peterborough, not directly about Ricky but we’ve spoken about players who may or may not be available to us and that’s standard practice. We’ve done that to most teams in the Championship and League One.

“Ricky’s a very good player and we’re respectful of him but we’re respectful that he’s Peterborough’s player.”

  • ACCRINGTON Stanley manager John Coleman has set his sights on strengthening his squad in January.

The transfer window opens on New Year’s Day and Coleman has revealed that he has already started to search for new faces to bring to the Crown Ground.

Coleman said: “I am looking in all departments. I think you’ve got to.

“We have to strengthen. We’ve got to give the players who are already here a lift - a couple of new faces can do that.

“If we can use something like that to get us back on track and get that bad spell out of the way then it bodes well for the remainder of the season.

“It’s very unlikely that we will lose anybody who is contracted to us in January, we want to build in this window.

“We’re in the process of speaking about the situation of all of the loanees, we’ll have a clearer picture on the 2nd of January following the Morecambe game.”
