Woodyard, Lincoln boss denies rumours of a bid from League One for Imps midfielder

Lincoln boss denies rumours of a bid from League One for Imps midfielder

Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley has ended speculation about Sky Bet League One side Scunthorpe United bidding for Alex Woodyard, according to Lincolnshire Live.

Reports earlier in the week suggested that the Iron had contacted the Imps in order to place an offer for the highly rated middleman, however Dany Cowley has denied these claims.

Woodyard, winner of last year’s National League Player of the Season Award, is highly rated at Sincil Bank, however Graham Alexander’s Scunthorpe United side are yet to officially place a bid for the England C international.

“I’m aware of the speculation but we’ve had no formal bid from them [Scunthorpe],” said Cowley to Lincolnshire Live.

Woodyard made 52 appearances in all competitions as the Imps stormed to the Vanarama National League title, amassing interest from Championship duo Aston Villa and Bolton following his impressive performances during Lincoln’s run to the Fifth Round Proper of the Emirates FA Cup.

The young midfielder moved to Sincil Bank at the beginning of last season, finalising a successful debut season by being named National League Player of the Season and sweeping the board at the Club’s end of season awards night.

Woodyard still has 12 months on his current deal, but it is understood that Danny Cowley has offered the midfielder an improved deal in order to retain one of his star players.

The Scunthorpe Telegraph suggest that the Iron would be willing to provide Woodyard a large pay rise, however chairman Peter Swann has previously stated that he would not pay more than he needed to for any player.
