Nigel Adkins is being touted as the next manager of Norwich City - although Scunthorpe say they have heard nothing from Carrow Road.

Adkins' name cropped up in the national media yesterday, but Iron chairman Steve Wharton said he has no intention of allowing his manager to leave the Championship club.

“I have heard nothing from Norwich about Nigel - and I hope it stays that way,” he said.

Southend's Steve Tilson distanced himself from the vacancy on Saturday, the day after City sacked Bryan Gunn.
