Robins snub Elliott rumours

22 January 2008 02:37
Bristol City manager Gary Johnson has rubbished reports linking Robins midfielder Marvin Elliott with a move to Championship rivals Leicester City. The 23-year-old has been in superb form since his summer move from Millwall, but Johnson insists that talk of another switch is wide of the mark. He said: "This is the first I've heard of it. This is typical of what happens in January and I take it with a pinch of salt. "It's a compliment to our club and how well we're doing that agents want to link their players with Bristol City. But that's all it is, agent talk. "I warned people that this would happen and that agents would use the media to try and drum up interest in players. It's just something you have to live with in January."
