THEO ROBINSON looks set to leave Town – but boss Lee Clark won’t be parting with any other senior players during the transfer window.
The manager’s pledge comes after a week in which Alex Smithies, Anthony Pilkington and Lee Peltier have all been linked with higher-level clubs.
“I’d be amazed if there weren’t rumours, because I have some very good players here,” said Clark ahead of today’s home FA Cup third-round clash with Dover.
“But the owner of the club has reassured me, and gone public, that none of my players have to go, so I’m relaxed about the situation.
“So are the players. They’re well aware there will be stories about moves, but they’re focused on the job they have to do here.”
The departure of Robinson, who scored 16 times for Town last season but has played only twice this time, would not come as a surprise.
Millwall, where he scored twice in six appearances before a knee injury cut short a loan stint which was due to end last month, have made their interest clear.
But Clark says other clubs have also been in contact about the 21-year-old he signed from Watford in the 2009 close-season.
“We decided to go down a different route in terms of strikers, and Theo became frustrated so went out on loan,” explained the Galpharm boss.
“Millwall are very interested, but so are two or three other clubs, and we have some potentially very good offers to consider.”
Clark has also confirmed he is in contact with Celtic about extending Republic of Ireland Under 21 international Graham Carey’s loan.
The initial deal for the Dubliner, who has made 23 Town appearances, is due to expire after Tuesday’s home clash with Plymouth.
