The unnamed club, who are based in the north of England, were interested in signing Ryan Fallowfield, though Weaver is adamant that the 25-year-old right-back is not a player who he wants to lose.

“There was a phone-call from another team in League Two just asking about Ryan, but he’s someone who we think a lot of here,” the Sulphurites chief told the Harrogate Advertiser.

“He’s a real asset and we want him here fighting for a place next season, so it was a ‘no’ from me.”

A number of players are expected to leave the EnviroVent Stadium this summer, with Weaver having already gone on the record in saying that he will not stand in the way of Kevin Lokko, Connor Kirby or Tom Walker should clubs come in for them.

But, so far, the enquiry about Fallowfield is the only concrete interest that the Town boss is aware of.
