Forest Green’s top brass are confident there will be no ins or outs during the January transfer window.
Chairman Dale Vince told BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Billy Hunt that despite tentative approaches for Rovers’ crown jewels, he isn’t expecting any concrete offers for any of his star-studded League Two table-toppers.
Vince said: “We’ve had a couple of approaches, but nothing has turned serious and I think being top of the league helps us. If we were near the bottom of the league and had some good players, then it might be more tempting to come fishing and they might be more tempted to leave, but right now I think our boys aren’t tempted to leave as they want to see the job through and get promoted.”
Edwards concurred with Vince’s stance, he added: “We’re happy with the group we have. It’s more about keeping the group together. We’re always ready to react if we need to, but the players love being around each other and are in a position to achieve something and they want to do that.”
Meanwhile, Vince also lauded Edwards’ impact since arriving in the summer following the departure of Mark Cooper, he said: “Rob is only the third appointment 11 years, not something we do often or in a hurry but it felt like the right time and we found a great guy in Rob and Richie (Kyle) his assistant who came with – and you can see for yourself the results speak for themselves on the pitch.
“There’s a great spirit and togetherness and this is the same squad bar four players that finished the season before, but the way we play is different and the outcome is different and the spirit in the camp is different and that’s down to Rob, he’s just a good guy, he’s good with the fans, players, and staff.”
