No club has contacted Crewe regarding out-of-contract striker Clayton Donaldson, according to boss Dario Gradi.

Donaldson, who was the top scorer in League Two with 28 goals, has been offered a new deal at Gresty Road but has yet to sign. Championship club Coventry, League Two champions Chesterfield and ambitious Football League newcomers Crawley have all been linked with a move for the 27-year-old.

However, Gradi told the club's official website: "No-one has spoken to me about Clayton. We have heard snippets of interest and someone mentioned Coventry, but I have never heard that they were."

He added: "There will be a time limit for Clayton, and Byron Moore, to let us know what their intentions are.

"We do have players in mind as replacements but we haven't acted yet as we don't know what is happening with the two lads."

Meanwhile, youngsters Ollie Turton, Caspar Hughes and Danny Ting all signed one-year deals with Alex on Saturday.
