Taylor has already rejected a new deal at Boundary Park, stating his wish to play at a higher level than League One.

Lee's performances at full-back this term have earned him Latics' Player of the Season gong and the 23-year-old is currently mulling over an offer to extend his stay beyond the current campaign.

"We have made an offer to Kieran and are waiting to hear from him," Dickov told Oldham's official website. "It is no secret that clubs are looking at him, but Kieran enjoys it here.

"Chris knows that we want him to stay and we have made him an offer, but there are Championship clubs looking at him and talking to his agent.

"Nobody can begrudge him wanting to play at a higher level. If he stays in League One I am confident it will be with us."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
