Crewe Alexandra manager Dario Gradi has rubbished claims that striker Shaun Miller is subject to interest from Watford.

Miller scored 19 goals in Npower League Two this season alongside top scorer Clayton Donaldson, who departed for Brentford earlier this summer.

Reports had suggested that Miller was subject to interest from Watford, but Gradi has played down fears that the club could lose both their leading lights before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

"I saw the story in the newspapers linking Shaun to Watford and you cannot always believe what you read there," Gradi told the club's official website.

"I actually spoke with the Watford manager (Sean Dyche) two days before that story came out and he never mentioned Shaun to me.

"Then I read that Watford were interested in buying him. We have not had one offer from anyone for any of our players."

He added: “I wouldn’t be able to stop it happening. We wouldn’t stand in anyone’s way. We never have – that’s the way we are.


“But at this moment in time there is no indication that anyone is interested in buying any of our players.”

The 23-year-old has already scored twice this season and was also linked with a move to Huddersfield Town and his departure from Gresty Road would leave a sizeable chasm at the heart of Crewe's attack.
