Bristol City manager Keith Millen maintains the club do want to keep hold of striker Nicky Maynard.

After a recent return from a long-term knee injury, a host of Premier League clubs have again turned their attention to the 24-year-old, with the forward out of contract next year.

But Millen says the club want to keep the star.

"We want to keep all our best players," Millen told the club's official website.

"Nicky had a great season last year and we paid a big transfer fee to bring him here.


"I'm looking to build my own squad here and be judged on that in the summer. Nicky's a big part of that.

"I'm sure he's happy here. He's had a good time and hopefully he wants to improve the squad like I do.

"We're aware of [the contract situation] but Nicky is fully focused on his football.

"He's only just returned from injury. Scoring two goals in as many games has just reminded people what he can do, and I'm sure people will be watching - like they would with any goalscorer.

The likes of Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United and SPL leaders Celtic are all believed to be interested in the former Crewe Alexandra man who signed for City from The Railwaymen for £2.25 million in 2008.
