The rumour mill is in full swing at New York following the club's promotion to League One and Port Vale's Ashley Vincent, Inverness striker Billy McKay and Rotherham-based Hartlepool goalkeeper Scott Flinders have all been linked with a move to the Millers.

But Evans has poured cold water on the speculation and said: "I can confirm that we are not in talks with Ashley Vincent, Billy McKay or Scott Flinders nor will we be in talks with them at any time.

"They are good players but they are just not on the list of targeted names that I have discussed with the chairman.

"It will not be the players themselves who has linked them with the club, but the current world of agents and the internet, it's easy to put two and two together and come up with 55."

Evans has however confirmed that recruitment plans are well under way following his return from an end-of-season holiday in Las Vegas.

"We're not in a position to release names yet, we will go about our business quietly and confidentially," he added.

"We've identified our key targets, the chairman is comfortable with them so it's now my job as manager to ascertain values if it's a purchase as well as wages and a package for the player before coming back and discussing it with the board."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
