Bristol City have rejected an offer for striker Nicky Maynard from an unnamed rival npower Championship club.

Maynard, 24, is rated as one of the best front men in the division and has one year remaining on his contract with the Robins.

The club have offered him a new deal in a bid to secure his services beyond the end of the coming season.

City chairman Colin Sexstone told the club's official website: "We're not in the business of selling our best players and we would certainly not sell to another Championship club.


"Nicky is an important part of manager Keith Millen's plans and we do not need to sell him, nor do we wish to."

He added: "Nicky has a year to run on his contract. We have already offered him a new contract and remain confident he will sign."
