STANLEY boss John Coleman insists star striker Paul Mullin is going nowhere.
Despite chairman Eric Whalley stating on a number of occasions that every player has their price, Coleman is confident he can hang onto his five-goal hitman. League Two rivals Rochdale made a £55,000 bid - payable in instalments - for Mullin last week but that was turned down by the Reds.
There were rumblings the Dale could come back with a bigger offer - but hadn’t by the time the Observer went to press - but Coleman said he didn’t expect any more news.
"That deal is dead as far as I am concerned," said the Reds chief.
"It was never even considered.
"The chairman saying every player is for sale is a stock answer and should be taken with a pinch of salt as we don’t have to sell and don’t want to sell Paul Mullin.
"We have got no reason to sell him."
