Michael Flynn has opted to Remain as Newport County boss following Discussions with Lincoln City.
Sky Sports News reported that Flynn talked to the rule of Lincoln during the weekend and it’s understood he matched the criteria set by their own chairman Clive Nates, that was from South Africa to oversee the recruitment procedure.
League One team Lincoln recently lost Cowley brothers Danny and Nicky .
Newport gave permission to Lincoln to hold talks but their offer was rejected by the 38-year-old.
A Newport statement read:”Following considerable media speculation, Newport County AFC will confirm the team received a strategy in recent times from a different EFL club for the expert services of manager Michael Flynn.
“The Exiles’ board gave permission to get Michael to speak to the other team.
“Michael has advised the board that all these talks are at a stop and that he stays dedicated to, and fully focused on, continuing his role as director of Newport County AFC.”
He has reiterated his commitment to his team although it is understood Lincoln made contact with Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth.
In an announcement on Wycombe’s website on Monday night, Ainsworth stated:”We have enjoyed a really powerful start to the year and it’s always flattering to see us – staff, players and the club as a complete – talked about in substantial respect.
“However, it’s important that the focus is on ourselves and what we do as a club to ensure that things continue to proceed in the ideal direction”
There’s one other unnamed manager on the shortlist of Lincoln.
