Lewis Grabban: Bristol City deny reports linking them with Bournemouth striker

The Robins have been linked with Bournemouth forward Lewis Grabban as McInnes looks to increase the Championship stugglers' firepower.

The 24-year-old has netted 10 goals in League One for the Cherries this season after switching from Millwall in a £300,000 deal during the summer.

But the club tweeted: "Derek McInnes has rubbished media reports linking him with Bournemouth forward Lewis Grabban."

There have also been suggestions that City winger Martyn Woolford has asked for a transfer after falling out of the first-team picture in recent weeks.

However, a second tweet read: "Derek McInnes has also strongly denied rumours suggesting winger Martyn Woolford has asked for a transfer."

Woolford, 27, moved to Ashton Gate from Scunthorpe in January 2011 and has since made 57 appearances for the club and scored four goals.

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.
