Owen Coyle says: “There will be a host of players out there who are out of our reach. I had to laugh when I was away on holiday [and saw] we were linked with a couple of players who I had never even spoken to!
“Nobody will speak to clubs or players on my behalf, if there's somebody after them that will be me.
“I read a report linking us with Damien Duff, but he would be nowhere within our reach!
“I have not spoken to Middlesbrough about Rhys Williams, he is a player I like, but that's been it.
“I'm not going to get involved in speculation about transfers because it just leads to frustration for everybody.
“Some rumours will be a load of nonsense and what I can assure the fans is when I have news regarding players they will hear it from me first.
“Unless any speculation is confirmed by me, then they can take it as being a load of nonsense.”
