Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has scotched speculation linking him with a move for Leyton Orient captain Stephen Dawson.

Dawson: No truth in Millwall link says Jackett

Reports this week claimed the Lions were among a host of clubs interested in the midfielder, who was Orient's player of the year last season.

Charlton, Crystal Palace, Leeds, Barnsley and Burnley have also been linked with Dawson, who will be out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

But Jackett has flatly denied any interest in the 26-year-old Irishman.

"There is nothing in that from our point of view," he told News Shopper.
