Bristol City have rejected a bid from a rival Championship club for Nicky Maynard.

The club in question is believed to be Leicester City, who were rumoured to be preparing a derisory £2m bid for the former Crewe striker last week.

City chairman Colin Sexstone told www.bcfc.co.uk: “We are not in the business of selling our best players and we would certainly not sell to another Championship club.

“Nicky is an important part of of manager Keith Millen’s plans and we do not need to sell him, nor do we wish to.

“Nicky has a year to run on his contract. We have already offered him a new contract and remain confident he will sign.”
