Paul Raynor has denied rumours that Mansfield Town have made a move for Scunthorpe United’s midfielder Neal Bishop.

The usual summer rumour mill is starting to rev up and Stags’ assistant boss Paul Raynor said: “That’s not one I’ve heard of.

“As you can imagine our phone is red hot at the moment.

“We have not made contact with Scunthorpe about Neal Bishop or his agent at the moment.

“He is a very good player and he’s had a decent season for Scunthorpe. But he’s not one that’s on the radar at the moment.

“I don’t read the forums. We get told ‘he’s coming. You hear names.

“I can assure everyone we are working very hard on a number of targets.”
