PHIL PARKINSON is only interested in making new signings in the January transfer window and not letting any of his key players leave The Racecourse.

Parkinson wants to strengthen his squad in the new year to give Wrexham's promotion challenge a boost and has been linked with a number of potential targets.

But there has also been speculation that Championship outfit Nottingham Forest - managed by ex-Wrexham academy chief Steve Cooper - are interested in the Reds' 12-goal leading scorer Paul Mullin.

Mullin scored 32 goals in League Two last season to help Cambridge United clinch promotion before penning a three-year deal with Wrexham in a summer.

Parkinson responded to the rumours by saying: "I think it's good that one of our players has attracted a bit of attention.

"It shows that we are doing what we need to do on the pitch.

"Mulls is a key player but the aim by the time January has finished is for the squad to be stronger and not weaker.

"I have not had any contact at all and I don't think anyone in the club has."

Parkinson's only concern is Mullin overcoming a slight hamstring problem ahead of Wrexham, up to fourth in the National League, facing Weymouth at The Racecourse on Saturday.

"He has had a bit of a problem with his hamstring in recent weeks which we have had scanned and it has come from his back so he's had a few days off at the start of this week," added Parkinson.

"Hopefully we get him firing for the weekend because we need him firing on all cylinders."
