Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins insists he does not want to sell top scorer Martin Paterson in the January transfer window.
It has been suggested that the Irons were looking to cash in on Paterson, who has scored 10 Championship goals this season.
However, Adkins is adamant he does not want to sell the striker - who he signed from Stoke in July - as Scunthorpe bid to avoid relegation.
Adkins told the Scunthorpe Telegraph: "Why would we want to sell him? We have only just bought him.
"I think all this is just down to a bit of creative writing from some journalists from a question I was asked after the game at Preston."
