Phil Parkinson revealed yesterday that chairman Richard Murray and he had sat down with Lloyd Sam to talk about the winger's future. The winger is out of contract in the summer, but when quizzed about tabloid speculation suggesting the star could be off to pastures new, Parky said: 'I haven't had one phone call about Lloyd. Speculation in the newspapers often comes from agents trying to drum up interest, but I can assure you I didn't have one call.'
'Myself and Richard Murray have sat down with Lloyd, but that conversation will remain private for now.'
The absence of phone calls does not mean a lack of interest and Leicester, Sheffield United and QPR have been linked with the sometimes frustrating but nevertheless talented player.
