We have recently been linked with Bristol City goal machine Nicky Maynard but those links have been rubbished by City Chairman Steve Lansdown.

“This is nothing more than press speculation and, just because something is reported in a newspaper, does not mean it is going to happen,” he said in the Bristol Evening Post.

The scary thing is, Skysports seem to think that Maynard is going to be a replacement for Bobby Zamora. But I think that Maynard is the sort of player who could play along side BZ rather than instead of him.

Birmingham have reportedly made a bid for Paul Konchesky. There is no mention of a fee but I’d say between 4 or 5 million. I’d be very sad to see him go though.
