SHEFFIELD Wednesday boss Brian Laws has denied the Coca-Cola Championship club are preparing to make a January transfer window bid for York City top scorer Richard Brodie.

The Owls have been linked with £250,000-rated Brodie, along with Peterborough United and Huddersfield Town, but Laws insisted there is no truth in the rumours at all.

Struggling Wednesday are without a win in eight games after Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat to South Yorkshire rivals Doncaster.

While an under-pressure Laws admitted new faces are likely in the New Year, he did not declare an interest in City’s 20-goal England ‘C’ international.

Laws said: “At the moment, I’m not looking further than the players we have at the club.

“We are monitoring other players with a view to January but I don’t know where that rumour (about Brodie) has come from at all. That’s completely out of the woods.”

Meanwhile, Mansfield Town say Luke Graham has completed terms for another month’s loan at City.

The 23-year-old will relieve Foyle’s defensive worries, with Djoumin Sangare, Alan O’Hare and Ben Purkiss all on the treatment table, and the Stags’ website declared he is expected to sign permanently for the Minstermen next month.

Graham has been more circumspect.

He told The Press on Tuesday that while he wanted to extend his loan stay, he would be considering his options in the January transfer window.

Living in Rushden, he currently has a 300-mile round trip each time he comes to York.

Speaking about the deal, Mansfield manager David Holdsworth said: “I have to prioritise the best interests and welfare of this football club both in a financial and constructive manner.

“The deal has finally been concluded by York and Luke and we wish him every success.”
