No Leeds bid for Holt, say Shrews

Grant Holt
Grant Holt joined Shrewsbury for 170,000 from Nottingham Forest

Paul Simpson has scotched rumours that Shrewsbury Town's top scorer Grant Holt has all but signed for Leeds United.

"There's been a lot of speculation about Holty but I've had no calls about him - and I want to keep it that way," boss Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"The last thing we want to see is for Holt to move, as we all think he can help us achieve promotion this season.

"He hasn't talked to me about Leeds or anyone. He's happy here, and I'm sure all this talk won't affect him."

The 27-year-old joined Shrewsbury for a club record 170,000 from Nottingham Forest last summer.

He has hit 20 goals for the Shrews so far season, 12 of them in League Two.
