Johnson Warns Clubs He's Not Selling

Johnson Warns Clubs He's Not Selling

Bristol City gaffer Gary Johnson has warned us, and others, that he isn't looking to sell his players amidst speculation linking us with a move for Marvin Elliott.

Paul Jewell is interested in Elliott, with it reported an interest has been shown in the former Millwall player from us along with Middlesbrough, but he isn't for sale according to Johnson.

'I'm trying to build something here and I want to keep my best players, not sell them.

'The last thing I want is to be losing players to rival clubs.

'Of course, every player has his price and you have to consider what is best for the club. But the players enjoyed last season and I can't think of any football reasons why they might want to leave.

'It's not just Marvin. There has been interest in other players as well. But there have been no firm offers as yet and, until I receive a faxed bid from another manager, I'll take all this transfer talk with a pinch of salt.'

'It can turn the players' heads, but I've been in the game long enough to be able to handle the speculation.'

Johnson was talking to Sky Sports.

It isn't the first time that Elliott has been linked with a move, nor is it the first time that Premier League clubs have been interested so he certainly has the quality that Jewell is looking for, but it looks like he would have to bid big!
