Lincoln City claim they have received no official approach for Albion managerial target Danny Cowley.

The 40-year-old is on a four-man shortlist drawn up by Baggies technical director Luke Dowling, after guiding the Imps to two promotions in three seasons.

In a statement, Lincoln insisted they were yet to receive an official request to speak to Cowley, who is assisted by his brother, Nicky.

The statement read: “The success we have enjoyed over the last three remarkable seasons has brought us considerable positive coverage and raised the profile of the club, the players and Danny and Nicky Cowley.

“The accolades for our management team have been thoroughly deserved and it is understandable if they attract the attention of clubs at a higher level.

“However, we have had no official approach from any club to speak with Danny and Nicky.

“The board talk regularly with Danny and Nicky who remain totally committed and focused on preparations for next season in our new adventure in League One.”

Cowley, who has three years left to run on his contract, would cost Albion around £500,000 in compensation.

Chris Hughton, sacked earlier this month by Brighton, is also on the club’s list.
