Pearson Denies Rumours

Last updated : 21 February 2002 By Andy Beill
Along with City, the 22-year-old had been linked with Birmingham, Mansfield and Luton (read more here) but Pearson has firmly refuted the reports.

"There isn't a grain of truth in the reports. We are looking at certain players but Roberts is not among them.
"I don't know where all this has come from - unless it's a case of a club trying to talk up the value of one of their players. We are not interested, end of story."
