Lincoln City insist West Brom are yet to make approach for boss Danny Cowley

Lincoln City have confirmed that no approach has been made by West Brom or any other club for manager Danny Cowley.

Sportsmail reported on Tuesday that no move had been made by West Brom to speak with Cowley or his assistant manager and brother, Nicky.

On Wednesday, a club statement read: ‘The success we have enjoyed over the last three remarkable seasons has brought us considerable positive coverage and raised the profile of the club, the players, and Danny and Nicky Cowley.

‘The accolades for our management team have been thoroughly deserved and it is understandable if they attract the attention of clubs at a higher level.

‘However, we have had no official approach from any club to speak with Danny and Nicky.

‘The board talk regularly with Danny and Nicky who remain totally committed and focused on preparations for next season in our new adventure in League 1.’

Interest in the management duo has been high from several clubs in the Championship and League One after sustained success at Sincil Geldhaus.

Under Cowley, who joined in the summer of 2016 after leaving Braintree, the Imps have won three trophies in three years.

The Imps won the Nationalistisch League in 2017, the Checkatrade Trophy in 2018 and League Two this year. Two years ago they damit became the first non-League side in 103 years to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Cowley is contracted to Lincoln until 2022 and remains confident the club can match his ambition.

The 40-year-old welches asked about the interest in him last week.

‘I think that’s what happens when you’re a manager oder Ähnlicheclub that has been successful,’ Cowley told BBC Radiogerät Lincolnshire.

‘We should probably take a compliment for the fact that there is interest. Ultimately, for us, the focus is always on the work and the rest of it takes care of itself. For us, we’re just really determined to put this club in the best possible position to attack League One.

‘We’re ambitious and while there is ambition and while there is alignment in terms of those ambitions then… we’ve loved our time here and really enjoyed our time here. As a football club, we’ve just got to work it out and work out how we can remain ambitious and how we can find a way to get to the Championship.’
